Do your upper teeth protrude far over your lower teeth? If so, you have an overbite. Almost everyone has a slight overbite, which is no problem at all. However, a large overbite can lead to dental problems such as excessive tooth wear and pain when chewing. At Felix & Bellus, we regularly get asked if an overbite can be corrected with transparent braces from Invisalign. We have good news for you: it can!
How does an overbite occur?
In many cases, an overbite is the result of genetic predisposition. This is because an overbite is caused by the size of the jaw and teeth, things that are determined genetically. An overbite often gets worse in childhood. Children who thumb, push their tongues against their front teeth, use a pacifier for a long time or are bottle-fed after infancy develop an overbite in many cases. Teeth grinding can also affect the development of an overbite.
Correcting an overbite with braces from Invisalign
In most cases, an overbite is excellent to correct with braces, both in children and adults. Invisalign’s transparent braces are great for significantly reducing an overbite. Thanks to our Itero mouth scanner, we can make a 3D scan and a detailed treatment plan where we can already give you an impression of the end result at the start of the process. We have the transparent braces custom made especially for you and can design them to achieve the result you would like to see. The duration of treatment depends on the degree of overbite.
