Good dental alignment
is important for at least two main reasons: it helps your teeth do their job properly, and it gives you a brilliant smile. If you or a family member have been diagnosed with an overbite, it’s natural to feel frustrated. The good news is that you’re not alone, and there are definite treatment options to correct an overbite in adults and children. Invisalign can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
What Is an Overbite?
In simple terms, an overbite is when your top teeth reach past your bottom teeth. Having a little bit of overlap is completely normal, but when upper teeth extend significantly (4–10 mm), it causes problems with your dental health
What Problems Can Overbite Cause?
The first reason to correct overbite issues has to do with self-esteem. Not everyone worries about misaligned teeth, but if your overbite makes you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable, then it’s time to do something about it. At Tribeca Dental, we want to give you a smile that lets you enjoy moments with friends and family without any reservations.
A deep overbite can also have serious dental consequences and health impacts:
- Improper tooth wear
- Jaw pain and headaches
- Discomfort when eating
- Breathing difficulties during sleep
- Speech issues
Teeth positioned at incorrect angles
interact with food differently, which can lead to enamel wear in vulnerable spots. An overbite can also make it harder to brush and floss adequately, causing problems with cavities and gingivitis. People who have a deep overbite are more likely to grind or clench their teeth, and they frequently have issues with TMJ-related pain and headaches.
How Invisalign Helps
Invisalign is an incredible modern solution that corrects dental alignment issues such as overbite in a comfortable way. Invisalign uses custom aligners to gradually adjust the position of your front teeth, giving you a natural smile and letting you eat, speak, and laugh without pain.
The Invisalign process is simple
and deeply effective:
- 3D imaging to capture the contours of your teeth
- Personalized aligners you wear for several weeks at a time
- Durable, flexible, and clear material for invisible all-day comfort
These custom aligners don’t hurt, and you can remove them easily when you want to eat something
. Whether you’re at work or school, no one can tell you’re wearing them.
