Reasons to Correct an Overbite with Invisalign
Many people don’t realize Invisalign® can treat an overbite and they mistakenly think they will have to get traditional braces instead. But at QuickSmiles, you’ll be treated by a Diamond-certified orthodontist who has been using Invisalign to fix overbites for more than 10 years.
While some people may simply go to their dentist when inquiring about Invisalign, a dentist’s lack of knowledge about straightening teeth and lack of experience with using Invisalign may lead to undesirable results.
The limitations of using a dentist vs the Quick smiles Invisalign orthodontist could make the difference between a great smile or a poor treatment experience.
Avoid Damage to Teeth & Gums
Because an overbite causes misalignment of your teeth, it can lead to permanent damage if not taken care of. The rubbing and grinding can wear down your enamel and leave you feeling discomfort in your gums as well. By fixing your overbite with Invisalign, this irritation can be avoided as your teeth are aligned properly.
Prevent Jaw Pain & Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
Caused by the joint that attaches your jaw bone to your skull, TMJ can be painful and lead to other problems like headaches or tinnitus. When your teeth have an overbite, this jaw pain can lead to difficulties with eating and even talking. But with Invisalign, your overbite can be repaired and fix these issues.
Fix Speech Impediments Caused by Crooked Teeth
Did you know that an overbite can lead to a lisp or a whistling sound when you speak? This is due to the incorrect placement of the tongue in relation to your teeth and mouth. QuickSmiles uses Invisalign to fix speech problems caused by an overbite.
Repair Your Facial Structure
An overbite can even make various features of your face look different due to the misalignment of your upper and lower jaw. It can affect the way your cheeks and chin look and even make your jawline look misshapen. Fixing your overbite can provide multiple advantages to the shape of your face, which can also increase your self-confidence.
