Overbite correction adults options?

#Invisalign to correct overbite #DrSoftTouch
I have had great results using Invisalign to correct overbites. I would recommend seeing an experienced licensed Invisalign provider for a consultation to determine your options. A good way to determine if you have chosen a dentist who can deliver excellent results is by asking to see before and after photos of their actual patients. I'll attach a before and after photo of a patient of mine who's severe overbite was corrected entirely with Invisalign. If a dentist tells you that Invisalign won't work and metal braces are the best option for you, be sure to get a second opinion from a cosmetic dentist because cosmetic procedures such as veneers or crowns may be an option for you. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

The DNA Appliance and Epigenetic orthodontics is probably the best approach for an adult.
It is removable and is only worn 12-14 hours a day. It is very friendly to an adult who can have it out for work or social functions. There is virtually no pain as it gently expands the jaws orthopedically unlike stanrd orthodontics.
