when i bite down my jaws close directly on top of each other i have gotten 2 very different opinions please help


Posted by sharrie1

i was told i have a long lower jaw which has resulted in a "class 3 bite" or something like that. Basically, when i bite down, my jaws close directly ontop of each other even when i am pressing on my back teeth. i have gotten 2 very varying solutions. the first was that i should have maxillofacial surgery to remove a bit of the lower jaw, the other solution was to have braces put in.  PLEASE give me your opinion.
