Yes: Mild open bites can be fixed with braces or invisalign. In cases of severe open bites (more than, say, half an inch, braces would probably be preferable, and surgery may be required.

Succinct answer! Also, see a qualified Orthodontic Specialist for your care. The training and skill of the practitioner is the most important factor in your treatment.

Likely: really depends on your specific case, but I can not think many cases of an open biter we have not been able to address with braces (harder with invisalign and a lot less likely)

Braces: Invisalign not appliance of choice for extruding teeth. Braces at least twice as effective. If open bite dental, can be treated with braces. If skeletal, may also need jaw surgery. See a qualified Orthodontic Specialist, you need a specialist to fix this.

It is possible: However, treatment decision should be made after discussion between you and your Orthodontist.
