Invisalign (Definition)

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. They are not a braces substitute, are only about 60% as effective, take longer, are more expensive, and don't provide as much post-treatment stability. See an Orthodontic ...Read more

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. Not sure of your aversion to braces, but in all likelihood, while other solutions can exist (surgery as an example) they cost a lot more and hurt a lot more. Reconsider your aversion to orthodontics ...Read more

Can you have invisalign when you have a moderate overbite and gaps in you top teeth?

Appliances: For best answer go see an Orthodontic Specialist for initial Examination (usually free) to discuss the ex tent of your malocclusion and the treatment plans that are appropriate for you. If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Many non-Orthodontis do clear aligner treatment because they are not trained to do anything else, but Orthodontists do it better. ...Read more

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. If extractions are required treatment may exceed the capabilities of clear aligners to resolve. Extraction Fee will be charged by the Dentist who does the extractions, ; it's not part of Orthodontic Fee. Retainers usually included in overall orthodontic fee. See Ortodontistic Specialist. ...Read more

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 more

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 more

Will invisilign correct an overbite?

It can: Depends on the overbite. You may also need button put on with the invisalign to allow for elastics to be worn to help get the movement needed. 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 more
