Invisalign: Q&AAsk a Question
I Have Invisalign and It is Being Used to Correct an Overbite, But Will It Work? (photo)
I have been researching online and have read that you can not correct an overbite using elastics once the upper jaw is formed. I am 22 years old so I assume mine is. I have invisalign and I am really happy with the results, so I am wondering how is my bite going to be fixed- I have had elastics for 2 months so far. In order to fix my overbite, are my bottom teeth going to be moved farther out so they align with my upper teeth? I have read that only functional orthodontics treat this issue.
