HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WEAR BRACES FOR AN OVERBITE?
It is difficult to say because it depends on the severity of the problem. You should have had a consultation with your orthodontist in the beginning, so if that subject did not surface you should ask to talk with the doctor about that. Most orthodontic problems of any severity require approximately two years to correct. This is as close to answering your question as I am able.
