What Can Fix a One-Tooth Underbite?

I have a major over bite, but my lateral incisor is behind my bottom teeth acting like an under bit, buts its only that one tooth.

Single tooth crossbite

There are several orthodontic methods available today to correct your bite.  They include traditional braces, clear aligners and spring loaded appliances.  I would suggest you consult with an Orthodontist to make sure there are no other alignment issues and to develop a treatment plan which suits your needs.

I recommend consulting with an Orthodontic Dentist to determine if you're a candidate for Invisalign, The Dr. will tell you what options will work to correct the under-bite.
