What is an Overbite?
An overbite is caused by your top front teeth overlapping your bottom front teeth. It is one of the most common dental problems across the nation affecting about 70% of the population.
With various types of overbites such as an overjet or a deep bite, they can cause multiple problems for a person if not fixed. An improper bite can lead to jaw pain and can cause extra wear on your teeth from grinding.
While it is normal to have a little bit of an overbite, they can also be too big. Overbites are defined using a percentage with orthodontists saying a healthy bite should be in the range of 5% to 25%.
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.
Benefits of Using Invisalign for Your Overbite
No Food Limitations
Unlike braces, using Invisalign for overbite doesn’t prevent you from enjoying all of your favorite foods. You can still have popcorn, nuts, ice, and more. As long as you wear your Invisalign clear aligners for at least 22 hours per day and keep your teeth clean, you can continue eating as you were before you got them.
Easier to Brush & Floss
Speaking of clean teeth, with Invisalign you don’t have to drastically change your routine of brushing and flossing. You can easily remove your trays to clean them with your toothbrush and then clean your teeth as normal. Gone are the days of food getting stuck in your braces and having to thread your dental floss in between the wires.
Less Orthodontist Visits
On average, metal braces require between 15-25 orthodontist visits throughout your treatment. While a professional Invisalign provider like QuickSmiles can limit the number of appointments to between only 3-5.
Traditional braces include the use of sharp wires and metal brackets, which can be sharp and even cause sores in your mouth. With each appointment, you generally have to get the braces tightened, causing additional discomfort. With Invisalign for overbites, you can enjoy the comfort of personally-designed clear aligners that are made to fit perfectly.
Invisalign clear aligners for your overbite were made to be virtually invisible. You won’t have to feel self-conscious about people seeing them or commenting on them throughout your treatment.

While braces are easily seen when you talk, eat, or smile, Invisalign is virtually unnoticeable. Metal braces also make it much more difficult to brush your teeth and have a wide variety of restrictions on what you can eat or drink. In addition, you can enjoy going to your orthodontist as much as 80% less often.
And while there are other clear aligners out there claiming similar results, none of them are as effective or time-tested as using Invisalign for an overbite.
