Will Invisalign Fix my Openbite? (photo)

What are other alternatives? Will my teeth straighten over time? The gap has considerable closed from when I was younger.

Invisalign to close open bite

Invisalign would be my first choice over braces in an open bite like yours. An alternative to active tooth movement would be tongue position training. Perhaps with some targeted exercises you can get more spontaneous improvement. Ask your dentist for a referral to a speech therapist.

Talk to a dentist or orthodontist. X-rays would be needed and then a decision could be made on Invisalign.
