Not all bite problems are the same. Fortunately, Invisalign®, known for its discreet and comfortable approach to straightening teeth, has proven effective in correcting various bite problems. In this blog, we’re sharing details about how Invisalign can correct bad bites and restore oral health.

What Is a Bad Bite?

Bad bites, also known as malocclusions, come in various forms. Conditions like overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites are referred to as bad bites because they involve misalignment between the upper and lower teeth. A poor fit can lead to functional problems and aesthetic concerns.

How Invisalign Corrects Bad Bites

Invisalign utilizes advanced technology to create personalized treatment plans. Each patient who opts for Invisalign will receive a set of custom-made, clear aligners designed to gradually move teeth into their ideal positions. This technology-driven approach also extends to correcting bad bites like:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites

For overbites, where the upper teeth excessively overlap the lower teeth, or underbites, where the lower teeth protrude beyond the upper teeth, Invisalign aligners can be designed to strategically shift the teeth and bring them into proper alignment.

Crossbites occur when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. Invisalign’s tailored approach can target specific teeth to correct crossbites and ensure proper positioning for function and aesthetics.

The Benefits of Invisalign to Correct Bad Bites

One of the primary advantages of Invisalign is its nearly invisible appearance. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are transparent, allowing individuals to undergo orthodontic treatment without drawing attention to their dental work.

Invisalign aligners tend to be more comfortable as they are made from smooth, BPA-free plastic, minimizing the potential for irritation to the cheeks and gums. They are also removable, making it easy to maintain oral hygiene and enjoy favorite foods.
