Can teeth aligners fix an overbite?

Clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment representing a different approach to creating a straighter smile. Traditional braces depend on metal brackets and wires to reposition teeth. While these appliances are effective, they also are uncomfortable and highly visible.

The process in Germantown starts with a complete evaluation of your bite and existing teeth alignments to make an effective treatment plan.

Invisalign Treats Many Malocclusions, Including Overbites

A malocclusion is a condition you may have when your upper and lower teeth are out of alignment when your mouth is closed. An overbite is a malocclusion where your upper front teeth extend over your lower front teeth. While most people have a slight overbite, when your overbite is too extensive, it can cause tooth wear and jaw joint problems.

Invisalign clear aligners can treat minor to moderate overbites, and the system can target this condition, especially in younger patients. According to the manufacturer, clear teeth aligners from Invisalign now include mandibular advancement that can address overbites. Contact our Germantown MD dental office to schedule an Invisalign consultation.
