Correcting overbites and underbites is a common reason patients turn to braces.
If you’re specifically considering orthodontia to correct an existing overbite, you might be curious about whether Invisalign clear braces are right for the job. Generally speaking, yes, Invisalign can fix an overbite.
However, it’s important to consider that Invisalign is not the best choice for severe orthodontic problems. If your overbite is extreme or your teeth show signs of wearing and breakage because of your overbite, our Clintonville, OH dentists may recommend alternative treatment types.
If you have a mild-to-moderate overbite and want to wear invisible braces, you’re probably a good candidate. Because Invisalign isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution, our approach to correcting your overbite using Invisalign will be specific to you.
The Invisalign labs design and customize your trays based on the information and impressions we provide them, which means they can create personalized aligners to fix your overbite.
When standard aligners aren’t enough to correct the problem, we still have other options. We may ask you to wear special dental elastics called “Precision Cuts” with your Invisalign trays to help move your teeth into alignment. Additionally, we will consider the Carriere Motion Appliance, or “CMA,” if your bite needs additional guidance to move into place.
