I am 15 and unfortunately as a younger child i sucked my thumb a lot. I outgrew this habit quite a while ago but it greatly affected my growing teeth, causing an almost slanted open bite. I have attached a similar photo. Because of this, i have become very self conscious, especially as my speech is slightly impaired because of it. I would like to know; at what age do teeth stop growing? As my open bite used to be very wide but it has closed up over the years and i wonder if it will still continue to close up. Or will i need braces? I wouldn’t mind braces but i just would rather not go through the pain and experience of them. Thanks!
