Recently, i've noticed that my lip movement is not proper like other people while speaking. Does that mean that I have an incorrect jaw position? do I need to get braces for myself? i'm 18yrs old.

Ya you may be having a orthodontic problem. Advice from me that you visit an orthodontist for this reason not a normal dentist. Orthodontist are dentist with extra 3 years of training in correcting jaw positions. you can choose a private consultation with me to give you proper guidance.

I think you do not need any braces as you are young you should visit dentist and confirm this.
