Can Invisalign Correct My Open Bite?

Having a crooked smile is embarrassing enough. But suffering from an open bite can take your negative emotions to a new level.

When there’s a gaping hole between your top and bottom teeth, you may…

  • Find it difficult to keep your mouth closed.
  • Suffer from a speech impediment.
  • Have difficulty while eating meals.

The result is acute self-consciousness.

The severity of your malocclusion can make you wonder if metal braces are your only option, and you may find yourself thinking thoughts like…

I never heard of anyone correcting an open bite with anything other than metal braces.

My smile is so crooked. Traditional braces are probably the only treatment that can fix my bite.

Can Invisalign correct my open bite? It seems too good to be true.

The good news is you don’t have to settle for metal braces – even if you have an open bite.

In this blog post, we’ll explain how Invisalign’s clear aligners work to align your teeth, how they’ve provided relief to other open-bite patients and how they offer a number of benefits – no matter your malocclusion.

How Invisalign corrects open bites and other malocclusions

To see how Invisalign can correct your open bite, you’ll need to understand how its clear aligners work to straighten your teeth.

Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners don’t use archwires affixed to metal brackets to correct your smile. Instead, each aligner uses a clear, plastic material called SmartTrack® to gradually shift your teeth into their proper position.

This material is custom-made for your smile. As you switch to a new pair of aligners during treatment, your current aligners will have a slightly different shape from your previous set, which moves your teeth closer to their proper position.

This innovative design gives your aligners the power to correct your malocclusion – even an open bite.

How Invisalign has treated open bite cases

While closing your open bite may seem to be an insurmountable challenge, Invisalign is no stranger to your malocclusion. Be sure to check out these examples Invisalign gives of open bites it’s corrected.

On top of that, according to a recent article in the Journal of Orthodontics, Invisalign may correct your open bite and eliminate the need for surgery, traditional metal braces or screws. Read this article to discover how Invisalign…

  • Empowered one patient to correct her dentoskeletal open bite and avoid surgery or pulling teeth.
  • Helped a teen to resolve a Class II dentoskeletal open bite to improve her appearance.
  • Allowed another patient to remove the acute open bite problems she developed as an adult.

The benefits of Invisalign for all orthodontic patients

As these examples demonstrate, Invisalign can empower you to put your open-bite problems behind you and enjoy a beautiful, glowing smile.

Yet, whether you have a serious open bite or a simple crowding challenge, Invisalign offers a number of advantages during orthodontic treatment.

In addition to creating a straight smile, Invisalign empowers you to correct your malocclusion without others noticing. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign’s clear plastic material helps you keep your orthodontic treatment to yourself.

On top of that, your Invisalign aligners are removable. You won’t need to awkwardly brush around archwires or forgo your favorite popcorn snack. As you can conveniently remove your aligners, eating meals and cleaning your teeth are a breeze.

There’s no reason to settle for the inconvenience and embarrassment of metal braces if Invisalign can close your open bite.
