Invisalign for Overbites in Riverside & Chino CA

An overbite is one of the most common bite disorders across all age groups, accounting for nearly 70 percent of dental problems. Fortunately, there are multiple orthodontic treatment options for this condition, including the discreet Invisalign system. That said, your eligibility for Invisalign treatment will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • The severity of the overbite 
  • Age of the patient 
  • Ability of the patient to handle the treatment 
  • Treating Overbite for Children 

For young patients under 12 years, the dentist may recommend using the child’s growth and development to naturally correct an overbite. With the aid of the right orthodontic appliance, it’s possible to redirect the patient’s tooth growth to correct their bite. With the Invisalign system, the orthodontic appliance commonly used to correct an overbite is known as Invisalign Mandibular Advancement. 

This appliance comprises aligners with plastic wings that help to gradually guide the lower jaw forward in small increments, while simultaneously straightening the lower front teeth and aligning the jaws. Compared to other orthodontic treatments for overbites, the Invisalign system is less invasive, more comfortable, and easier to clean.

Other benefits of Invisalign mandibular advancement include:

  • Simultaneous teeth straightening and jaw alignment 
  • No restrictions on food or diet 
  • Removable for eating and dental hygiene 
  • Removable for participation in sports or wind instruments
  • No irritation of the cheeks or emergency visits 
  • Treating Overbite for Teens and Adults 

For patients above the age of 12 years, mandibular advancement appliances cannot be successfully used to fix an overbite. Instead, your dentist may recommend wearing Invisalign aligners with elastics to gradually move the front teeth in the lower jaw forward, while moving the front teeth in the upper jaw backwards to correct a deep bite. 

If you have a severe overbite, your dentist may recommend an additional orthodontic appliance known as the “motion” device. This is a small bar that is placed on the upper teeth to reduce the underbite while undergoing your treatment with elastics and aligners.
