INVISALIGN FOR OVERBITE

How Invisalign Can Help Your Overbite

If you have an overbite, you may be interested in correcting it through Invisalign. Invisalign is the best way to correct your overbite with a safe, effective procedure that will have your smile looking happier and healthier than ever before. The following guide will help you understand the essentials that you need to know about using Invisalign to correct an overbite.

COSMETIC AND PRACTICAL CONCERNS FOR OVERBITES

Overbites can cause a variety of problems if they are considered too large and are left uncorrected. Dentists estimate overbites using a percentage; typically, an overbite of between 5 to 25% is acceptable, whereas overbites with a larger percentage are considered to be a “deep bite.” Uncorrected overbites that are too large could potentially cause your teeth to wear down over time, which will damage your tooth enamel and increase your chances for tooth sensitivity and tooth decay. Overbites can also cause teeth grinding and jaw pain, depending on the severity of the overbite. 

DOES INVISALIGN WORK FOR OVERBITES?

Yes! Invisalign can work to correct your deep bite overbite. Invisalign may be recommended by your dentist since it is efficient, works with many different types of teeth and teeth problems, and is considered to be an ideal treatment for people who are interested in tooth correction without getting a traditional braces treatment. 

You should consult with your dentist about whether or not Invisalign is the right treatment option for you. Whether or not it is recommended may depend on the percentage of your overbite, the overall state of your teeth, and other factors as determined by your dentist. 

HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK

Invisalign is relatively simple. First, you will have a consultation with your treatment team in order to determine whether or not Invisalign is right for you as well as what results you may be able to expect with Invisalign. Next, you will undergo a unique scan that will create a 3D map of your teeth. Your treatment team will then create a customized treatment plan using this map. 

Once your plan is in place, your treatment team will create custom Invisalign aligners based on your needs. These aligners will then be periodically replaced as your teeth adjust, allowing for your teeth to be gradually corrected over time. Invisalign is designed to be effectively “invisible” when compared to traditional braces, so they will hardly be noticeable when you are wearing them during your everyday life.

The length of your Invisalign treatment plan will vary depending on the level of correction that your overbite requires as well as the overall response time of your teeth. Most people see the anticipated results within 12 to 18 months, though this can vary from person to person. Your Invisalign treatment team will discuss the expected results with you, along with the projected completion date for your Invisalign treatment. 

If you have a large or deep overbite that you would like corrected, then you should consult with our team about your options. Invisalign, which is one of the most popular corrective teeth procedures out there today, may be right for you.

From the start Dr. Chahal and the team took into consideration my high anxiety about coming to the dentist due to childhood traumas of past dentists treating me as just another "patient" But the entire team from Reception, Hygienist, Dental assistant and Dentist made me feel empowered to keep my Dental hygiene strong and wanting to up keep with my appointments. They see you as a person and make you feel welcome and comfortable always checking in on you while the appointment moves along. I couldn't recommend a better Dental practice and truly feel all his employees are passionate about every patient giving them the best service you could expect from what once scared me to go for cleanings. I now look forward because they have erased all fear from what others have done, they make me want to do my best with my dental hygiene and give me knowledge about the importance of what they do allowing me to be part of my dental health. Before I allowed fear to detour me from coming to the dentist, but now I am a strong believer in putting my dental hygiene in top priority as it plays a huge factor in our physical and mental health. If you have pain in your mouth it stops you from enjoying the food that nourishes our body which can lead to even more problems. So if you have had poor dental experiences in the past, fear to come in because you've put it off for so long or just want to experience what a dentist is suppose to truly be I recommend Oxford Family Dental for all ages and will continue recommending them to all my friends and family.
