Thanks to Invisalign, straightening your teeth no longer has to include metal brackets and dark-colored wires. With their clear aligners, you can enjoy virtually undetectable treatment, no dietary restrictions, and shorter average treatment timelines (just a few of the many perks). But can Invisalign fix bite problems too? To find out the answer, read on!

So, Can Invisalign Fix Bite Problems?

In short, the answer is yes, Invisalign can fix bite problems. With that being said, candidates are determined on a case-by-case basis. To find out if clear braces are the best solution for your dental needs, your dentist will consider several factors, including the severity of the bite problem. The good news is that Invisalign is an ideal choice for many patients. So, whether you’re struggling with an overbite or a crossbite, the clear aligners can help your teeth come together evenly, improving the look and function of your smile in the process.

5 Perks of Choosing Invisalign

If you’re torn between whether you should choose metal braces or Invisalign, there are a few benefits that come with the latter, including:

  • Removable trays mean no dietary restrictions
  • Stress-free oral hygiene routine
  • Virtually undetectable treatment
  • Shorter treatment timelines (on average)
  • Straighten your teeth and align your jaw simultaneously

How To: Stay on Track with Invisalign

Whether you have an overbite, open bite, or something in between, investing in Invisalign can make a difference in both your oral health and your confidence. To make your time with braces as brief as possible, it’s of the utmost importance that you follow all of your dentist’s instructions. Otherwise, you will slowly but surely begin to fall off-track. To prevent that from happening, make sure to:

  • Change your trays on the right day (the Invisalign app can help you do that)
  • Wear your aligners for 22 hours a day
  • Don’t eat or drink (with the exception of water) with your aligners in
  • Prioritize your check-in appointments with your dentist
  • Don’t use hot water to rinse your trays (this can warp their shape)
  • Implement a solid oral hygiene routine to prevent dental problems, like cavities

From crooked teeth to poor bites, Invisalign can effectively address a wide range of orthodontic issues. If you want to find out if you’re a candidate for clear aligners, then get in touch with your dentist!
