Hi! I want to ask what treatments I need for my case. Wanna have my underbite corrected through braces but the dentist says I need to seek a periodontist first. He says my gums are receding.

Good day
I would listen to your dentist. There are signs, based on your photos, that indicate you might have periodontitis. If you place braces on periodontally compromised teeth, this could cause a lot more damage.
