Are you wondering, “Can Invisalign® fix my underbite?” While most have a little overbite, otherwise known as “buck teeth,” there are many others with the reverse situation. An underbite has a bulldog-like appearance instead. If your lower teeth stick out in front of your upper teeth, you may be able to correct it with Invisalign®.
As with an overbite and many other misaligned teeth, or malocclusions, the situation varies. In some cases, a minor problem is hardly noticeable. In other cases, an underbite can cause serious health concerns.
Trouble can include:
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with it anymore.
As you can see, it’s important to see your dental care provider. As they access your teeth, they will help prevent further problems. Remember, fixing an underbite may not be merely cosmetic. On the contrary, it could prevent the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, pain, and injury.
Please don’t put it off any longer.
Keep in mind, if your underbite is severe, then Invisalign® alone may not be a full solution. However, combined with other treatments, you can be on your way to a healthier, happier you. Best of all, Invisalign® is comfortable, easy to wear, and gets results faster than you might expect.
Invisalign® uses state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology to create a personalized treatment. With no metal wires, there is less risk for abrasions to your mouth. Also, there is less time spent at your doctor’s office to adjust the wires. Of course, the fact that you can take out the clear aligners to eat will have you smiling right off the bat.
Overall, the process is convenient and practical. There are gradual adjustments as you progress toward a perfect smile. In general, you can expect to wear the aligners for 9-15 months, depending on the severity of the underbite. For many teenagers, clear aligners can mean the world. Why? Because many people won’t even know you’re wearing them.
