Can my Overbite Be Corrected Using Invisalign? (photo)

I have attached a pic of my overbite & was wondering if it could be corrected using invisalign. I had braces & wore a headgear, but my treatment was not finished. I'm now older & seeking an alternative to braces. I've seen an orthodontist that specializes in Invisalign & have been told it can be corrected but would like more opinions.

After your Dr gives you all your choices have him do a diagnostic set up on your casts. You will be able to see your result by a before and after. He also can explain ALL your choices and which will be best for your dental health and appearance

What you are picturing is an overjet, the upper teeth being more forward than the lowers. Yes this can usually be corrected with Invisalign.

Hi MyTeeth26,


Its impossible to tell with just the photo you submitted, and it looks more like overjet rather than overbite.  But from what I can tell, it shouldnt be a problem correcting the alignment of your teeth with Invisalign.
