|Comment||Dr. Teig, thank you so much for your answer. I feel better knowing now that it might not be necessary to correct the overjet. I was worried about what the dentist told me about wiring my jaw for several weeks to allow for healing. I have always been petrified of dentists (sorry, just a thing I have) and needless to say I would put off until I absolutely HAD TO, to go in and have anything taken care of. I appreciate your answer and your time. Donna|
