How Can You Fix Overbite Problems With Clear Aligners?

An overbite can be mild or severe, but it is a common dental issue. No matter how severe your overbite is, it should be treated as soon as possible to avoid further oral health issues. The perfect solution for you is a set of clear teeth aligners, which will help you avoid these issues and straighten your teeth without difficulty.

Did you know that the majority of dental problems are caused by overbites? This orthodontic condition can be treated in a variety of ways, but one that may come as a surprise is the use of clear aligners. Clear aligners are a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment for overbite correction because they eliminate the need for bulky and unsightly braces in favor of thin, lightweight, and convenient aligners.

We've outlined two major types of overbites so that you can better understand them.

  1. Horizontal Overbite: Top teeth protruding in front of bottom teeth is known as an overbite.
  2. Vertical Overbite: The tops of your teeth have a large overhang over the bottoms of your teeth.

Why is it necessary to fix Overbite?

Prevent Gum and Tooth Decay

Teeth misalignment occurs as a result of an overbite. And the front teeth may come into contact with each other from time to time. It is possible that this rubbing could cause damage to the enamel on your teeth, which serves as an armor to protect them from bacteria and other problems. Without enamel, your teeth are vulnerable to cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. As a result, it's critical that you have your teeth straightened as soon as possible in order to avoid any future anxiety.

Prevent TMJ and Jaw Pain

TMJ disorder is caused when your jaw is misaligned due to an overbite, putting constant pressure on the joint that connects your jaw to the skull. Another side effect of this is that you may have difficulty eating, sleeping, yawning, or speaking because of the pain in your jaw or ear. Straightening your teeth as soon as possible will help you avoid these issues down the road.

Improve your Facial Structure

You may be surprised to learn that an overbite can alter the shape of your face. As a result, the cheekbones and chin appear less prominent in people with an overbite because the upper jawbone thrusts forward while the lower jawbone sits behind it. Clear aligners, on the other hand, can help you achieve a more defined jawline and, as a result, a slimmer face.

Identify and Correct the Source of the Speech Impairment

Overbite can cause lisps, as well as other speech disorders. In addition, there are a few words and letters that are difficult to pronounce because your tongue doesn't hit your teeth or the roof of your mouth as it should. Correcting your overbite in conjunction with speech therapy can assist you in overcoming a speech impediment.

As a result, overbites can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, which in turn can lead to tooth loss. When your bottom teeth hit the roof of your mouth, you may also suffer from soft tissue damage. Migraines, headaches, arthritis, digestive issues, and even the need for fillings are all possible side effects of a bad bite.

Regardless of whether your overbite is caused by a misaligned jaw or a misaligned set of teeth, your orthodontic treatment will be affected.

Clear Aligners can be used to correct an Overbite

Clear aligners are one of the most convenient and hassle-free options when it comes to straightening your teeth.

By applying constant pressure to the teeth, clear aligners can correct overbites and underbites. You'll observe a noticeable difference in the alignment of your teeth because of it. We suggest you wear your clear aligners at all times, including while you sleep, in order to get the best results. Of course, you can easily remove your clear aligners while eating, brushing, flossing your teeth, etc…

No matter how old you are, it doesn't matter if you're a child, teenager or adult; overbites may be hereditary or the result of childhood habits. The best course of treatment is recommended by an orthodontist with specialized training. Clear aligners, which are more discrete, may be an option for you if you need to fix your overbite.

You must remember that your practitioner's skill, knowledge, and experience is the most important factor in determining your outcome. It's up to you to decide whether or not clear aligners can correct your overbite based on your specific needs and your willingness to wear them.

We keep a close eye on your teeth' movement to determine the best course of action. When you wear a series of clear aligners, your teeth gradually shift into their proper alignment. As a result, you can achieve the smile you've always wanted at the end of the process!
