I have been to several dentists and they all told me that when i bite, my upper and lower teeth do not meet. There is a gap between my upper and lower teeth when i bite. None of them told me the name of that condition but from searching about it, i belive its called open bite?
Honestly, the fact that my upper and lower teeth dont meet when i bite, meaning i cannot cut a piece of tape or thread using my teeth, does not bother me.
So my orhtodontist suggested to just apply braces on the upper teeth only. However, he also said the braces will push the upper teeth forward hence that will increase the gap between my upper and lower teeth when i bite. Wont i develop a lisp that way? And if that gap becomes bigger, isnt that considered bad?
My orthodontist did suggest surgery to fix my teeth but im aginst it since the gap doesnt bother me.
My question is, if i apply braces on my upper teeth only, will the gap get bigger? Will i develop a lisp?
