How to fix an overbite
Available overbite treatment methods
A normal overbite or ideal bite is when your upper incisors cover approximately ⅓ to ½ of your lower incisors. Normal front teeth overbites would not usually require treatment. However, if you're concerned about a slight overbite or protruding teeth, contact an experienced Invisalign doctor to see if you're a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign treatment for overbite correction?
Invisalign clear aligners can correct an overbite or deep bite by moving the teeth. Treatment time can be around 12 to 24 months, depending on your case. Find out more about the Invisalign system below.
Removing extra teeth from an overcrowded mouth enables other teeth to move into place easily, which may be required when treating severe overbites.
Braces and other orthodontic devices
Metal braces can be used for overbite correction with the treatment process usually lasting one to two years.
Overbite correction surgery
Adult skeletal overbites may require surgery to reposition the jaw bone. This treatment is not suitable for children as they are still growing.
