Deep bite can be corrected many times by orthodontic braces but sometimes there is need for orthognathic surgery. First we need to see clinically as well as go through opg n lateral cephalograph what treatment gives best results. Visit orthodontist immidiately as already your lower teeth are mobile to prevent further deterioration.
