Can Invisalign fix an overbite?

Invisalign treatments can correct many specific types of teeth misalignment that impact your smile’s function and appearance. The system in Mount Pleasant, SC, starts with a consultation and digital scan of your teeth, from which the lab creates a series of molded, plastic trays customized to your mouth, which, over time, realigns your teeth.

One condition Invisalign can address is an overbite.

What Is an Overbite?

An overbite is where your top teeth are tilted forward, such that they stick out ahead of your bottom teeth. So instead of your upper and lower teeth lining up when you close your mouth, your lower teeth hit the back of your upper front teeth. When this happens, you may experience difficulty chewing and jaw stress.

Depending on the intensity of your overbite, Invisalign can usually correct this issue. However, in cases of more extreme overbites, a combination of Invisalign with other oral appliances or surgery could be the best solution to resolve the condition.
