How Invisalign Helps with Open Bite Issues

Invisalign clear aligners can effectively treat your open bite issues.

Addressing and correcting your overbite could seem overwhelming. Treatment options vary greatly, as do result from each kind of treatment. Invisalign clear aligners can effectively treat your open bite issues. Read on to learn how Invisalign impacts your bite alignment to combat open bite!

What’s Open Bite?

In a proper bite, our rows of teeth overlap at specific points across our mouth. An open bite is a malocclusion, or bite problem, where the top and bottom rows of teeth don’t overlap, which is where the term “open” bite comes from. This could occur in either your front teeth or in the back rows of your teeth. Structural problems within the teeth or your jaw could cause open bites. They usually develop due to a habit such as finger or tongue sucking. Although open bites can be challenging to treat, modern solutions like Invisalign offer affordable, simple, and comfortable solutions for fixing your smile!

Invisalign Aligners

The expert dental professionals from Catonsville Dental Care believe Invisalign is one of the top solutions for correcting open bites in our patients. Before you receive your aligners, our team of experts will take X-rays and 3D images of your mouth and bite so we can tailor treatment to your unique needs. We will custom-design your aligner based on models that predict how to best fix your bite. This helps ensure that your treatment options are suited to your needs based on the data that was gathered during the initial consultation.

Fixing an Open Bite with Invisalign

Once your orthodontist or dentist has looked at your bite, they’ll design your Invisalign aligner. Usually, patients wear their aligners for about 20 to 22 hours per day, taking them out only to eat. Roughly every two weeks, you will be given a new set of aligners to help fix your bite as it starts to change.

The aligners can gently shift your teeth into place and correct your bite. While treatment duration might vary, patients usually see successful results in about 12 to 24 months, depending on the severity of the problems and the needs of different dental patients.
