Can Invisalign Cure Overbite?July 25, 2016
Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional braces among both adults and teens. Invisalign uses invisible braces to straighten teeth through aligners, which are removeable. Moreover, Invisalign can correct a number of dental problems, which will be outlined below.
When it comes to Invisalign, there are many frequently asked questions. The answer to one such question is that the results you will get from Invisalign are just as good as the results you would get from traditional braces. Invisalign will also improve overall dental health as straight teeth are easier to floss and brush, therein reducing the chances of both cavities and gum disease. Of course, not only will a better smile increase your attractiveness and confidence, but it can lead to better opportunities.
Why Choose Invisalign:
One major benefit of Invisalign over traditional braces is that results can be achieved in as little as three to six months depending on the state of your teeth. This is precisely why Invisalign is chosen over traditional braces – it offers a more subtle way to straighten teeth without metal wires, brackets or headgear in less amount of time. Appointments are short and convenient.
Invisalign also offers Invisalign Teen, which is helpful for parents who are worried that their teens may take out their aligners. Interestingly enough, only 0.8% of teenagers require replacement aligners.These colour-changing aligners show exactly how long each aligner has been worn. Six replacement liners are also offered for free in the event that aligners are broken or lost.
Can Invisalign Cure Overbite?
Invisalign can correct a number of problems, including bite issues, which it does as teeth are moved to their ideal location. Invisalign can both treat and get rid of overbites completely. This is provided that patients use their aligners continuously and wear their retainers post treatment to ensure that teeth do move back to their original position.
Correcting your bite will generally place you at a Level 3, meaning that your treatment period will likely be somewhere around nine and 24 months. A consultation would be necessary to determine this.
Of course, if your overbite is particularly severe, 100 percent correction may or may not be possible, although you will likely still be satisfied with the results, even in the case of a severe overbite.
Invisalign can correct a number of other problems as well, including crowded teeth, crooked teeth, underbites and crossbites.
