I have an out-bite which I have been told would need to be corrected by surgery of jaw re-alignment. The surgery is not entirely needed as such, but without it I will never have a secure bite. This does not pose too much of a problem for me in everyday life, but there are some things that my out-bite does not allow me to do- I can not tear sellotape with my front teeth for example, which other people would probably do easily.
My question is, would this be detrimental for a potential soldier? Are there any scenarios where not having fantastic teeth may be an issue?
Any help is much appreciated.

When you gotta smile at the enemy, they're either gonna go
"oh damn those are some nice teeth don't wanna shoot that guy"
or they're gonna be like
"oh **** those are some nasty teeth BLAM BLAM BLAM"
but seriously I don't see why it should make a difference...
