Before and after invisalign overbite - Doctor answers
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are clear plastic trays designed to tip your teeth into improved alignment. They are extremely esthetic, and must be worn >22 hours/day to be effective.

I have an overbite, and want to fix it w/o braces or invisalign. Is there a way to do that without those?
Not well: The alternatives may be far more expensive and painful.

Can invisalign correct overbite? If so, do 1 or 2 teeth need to be pulled out to make room to push the overbite back in? Also, how much the retainer post the alignment cost? Should the quoted price for the procedure include pulling out teeth and the ret
Limits: Aligners can reduce minimal overbite, but are statistically only about half as effective as braces.

I would like the quickest possible treatment for my overbite. Will I get quicker results with invisalign than traditional dental braces?
NOOOOOI: It is entirely the wrong therapy for an overbite (what we orthodontists call overjet), a horizontal mismatch of upper teeth too far forward. Describing the details would be boring, but suffice to say it is much less effective and much slower. I understand why you would like an invisible alternative, but such is life, full of compromises. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
I would like the quickest possible treatment for my overbite. Will I get quicker results with invisalign than traditional dental braces? .
Nope: If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Invisalign, while up to less than 50% effective for minor problems, is less so for major ones. Traditional braces (and there are many new types) allow the fastest possible movement with the best possible result, generally at less cost than clear aligners. Make sure you see a qualified orthodontist, not a gp who dabbles in tooth movement. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

The best way to answer, however, is when an orthodontist can see your teeth live and in person-- without that none of us on the site and really give you a full answer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Invisalign: Invisalign is just another way to straighten your teeth instead of braces. Insurance doesn't have anything to do with invisalign. Either your insurance pays for orthodontics or it doesn't. Then you and your doctor can decide whether or not to use invisalign or braces. I hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
