Open bite corrected with Invisalign
Looking at your picture, I don't believe that you will need jaw surgery. Your open bite can be improved by ortho tx (traditional braces, invisalign, and etc.) I would recommend that you get an ortho consult in your area
Invisalign is a Wonderful Choice
So while this single photograph is not all the diagnostic information I
need. From the limited information. I would say that to CORRECT your bite a
combination of surgery and orthodontics is the answer.
However, to improve your smile and make improvements to the bite that will help you
look better, and feel more confident Invisalign is a wonderful choice. I
close down open bites and improve class 3 cases (your underbite) frequently.
I caution that this is not a case that any Invisalign provider can tackle.
You need a provider with experience in this area.
