Why Should I Fix My Bite?

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)
  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Excessive wear and tear of your tooth enamel

Even if you don’t consider the above-mentioned items, think about how a misaligned bite can lessen the appeal of your smile to others. No matter what inspires or pushes you to seek treatment, understand that you’re making the right choice to fix your orthodontic problem.

How Can Invisalign Correct My Bite?

Invisalign aligners going on over natural teethInvisalign is a versatile way to fix various bite alignment issues, including:

  • Overbite: This occurs when your upper teeth protrude over your bottom teeth.
  • Underbite: When your lower teeth push forward while your top teeth are seated further back, you have an underbite.
  • Crossbite: Should your teeth begin to overlap as you close your mouth, you have what is known as a crossbite, and it can wear down your teeth quickly.
  • Open Bite: If your teeth do not touch when closing your mouth, this is what is called an open bite and can be caused by overuse of a pacifier or thumb sucking as a child.
  • Dental Midlines: When the back of your bite is off, or you present TMD signs, your dental midlines might be the problem.

Whatever type of bite problem you have, Invisalign can work to correct it quickly and effectively. Over the course of your treatment, the trays will shift your teeth in a way that makes them line up appropriately, giving you a more beautiful, healthier smile.
