Invisalign for Overbite

While most people have a little overbite, a severe overbite can give your teeth an awkward or unpleasant appearance. This dental issue can also impact your jaw mechanics and lead to undue tooth wear. Instead of traditional braces, which can be cumbersome and uncomfortable, Invisalign offers a discreet and efficient treatment option for overbite.

At 172 NYC Dental, our highly experienced Invisalign provider can correct your overbite and create a beautiful, properly aligned smile. Dr. Sang (Ben) Ahn brings 20 years of Invisalign experience to our multidisciplinary team. He is a VIP Diamond Plus recipient and Manhattan’s top Invisalign practitioner. Let our team give you the functioning, harmonious smile you’ve always wanted.

What Is an Overbite?

An overbite is a misalignment of the front teeth. This malocclusion is also called an overjet, and it occurs when your upper front teeth protrude over your lower jaw. Severe overbite cases can actually cause the lower front teeth to bite into the upper palate. Overbites may be an inherited dental issue. However, they often develop due to poor habits during childhood, such as thumb sucking or pacifier usage. 

There are two main types of overbites:

  1. Dental: Also known as “buck teeth,” this is when only the upper front teeth protrude forward.
  2. Skeletal: A protrusion of the upper jaw causes the upper teeth to overlap the lower. 

Can Invisalign Fix Overbite?

Invisalign is a unique and effective orthodontic solution that can treat overbite or overjet. This procedure uses clear dental aligners that gradually reposition the teeth by pulling the upper and lower teeth into their ideal positions. You will need to wear your clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Aligner trays are replaced about every two weeks until the desired result is attained. 

Invisalign clear aligners for overbite offer a number of distinct benefits:

  • Convenience.
  • Removable for cleaning and eating.
  • Discreet.
  • Comfortable.

How Invisalign Works for Overbite

During your initial appointment with the team at 172 NYC Dental, we will evaluate your smile and diagnose your condition. We also take a 3D scan of your teeth to ensure Invisalign is the most suitable treatment option to address your overbite. 

The number of Invisalign trays created is based on the total number of weeks you will need to wear the aligners. Completion time for your treatment varies based on the severity of your overbite. Each set of clear aligners will be worn for two to four weeks, after which you will use the next set. This process continues until your teeth move to the required position.
