Lower jaw braces
Is it possible to have braces only on the lower jaw when the upper jaw teeth are normal and don`t need any major corrections.
Certainly, but I think that decision should be made between you and your orthodontist. Often it is not possible to get the " bite" or occlusion right without involving both arches of teeth.
