What To Learn About Invisalign Before and After Overbite 

Invisalign is considered one of the most popular and well-recognized clear retainer options for correcting tooth alignment throughout the U.S. It can be used to correct many orthodontic problems, including overbites. But how exactly does it correct overbites? 

Invisalign Before and After Overbite 
As a game-changer in the dental industry, Invisalign treatment is considered one of the most appropriate treatment options and the most recommended to patients because of its ability to bring impressive results without relying on traditional wires and brackets. It can offer these results in less time and give people with all kinds of teeth various options to choose from, including those with overbites. Through Invisalign, people can straighten their teeth, remove gaps, and correct signs of dental crowding and other overbite issues. However, before considering Invisalign for your overbite, here are some things to consider about Invisalign treatment:


  • 22-Hour Wear Time: Invisalign requires at least 22 hours of daily wear, meaning it needs to be worn while sleeping, and should only be taken off when brushing your teeth or eating. However, all other times it's recommended that they're worn because they can be easily removed and forgotten.
  • Discomfort During Wear: For some people, Invisalign may feel uncomfortable at first. While not as uncomfortable as braces during the first few weeks, Invisalign can be annoying due to the hard plastic feel along the teeth and gums. 
  • Buttons and Rubber Bands: Some treatments may require additional buttons or rubber bands depending on the alignment problem. These aspects resemble wearing traditional braces but attach to your aligners instead. 
  • Aligner Cleaning: It is highly recommended to clean out your aligners each night to prevent the build-up of bacteria along the inside. When left uncleaned, it can cause cavities and gum disease to occur in your mouth and impact your treatment. 
  • Retainers After Invisalign: After your Invisalign treatment is complete, it's essential to get retainers afterward to help maintain the tooth's new alignment and prevent it from relapsing. Due to the strenuous shift that has occurred, it can easily revert back to an overbite.

Overbites occur when your upper teeth extend beyond the lower teeth, and it's considered the most common malocclusion. Invisalign can treat overbites and help prevent serious dental disease by realigning the smile and shifting the upper teeth back to match the bottom teeth. If you're considering Invisalign, then make sure to speak with your dentist about your options for overbite treatment. 
One of the best things about Invisalign is how it combines orthodontics with advanced 3D graphics and technology. By specially designing your aligners to fit your mouth, it can help move your teeth into a new, better position without impacting your smile's appearance firsthand. Because of the technology behind it, Invisalign provides patients with new trays each week to gradually correct their teeth over time and help them achieve the smile they desire most!
