Types of malocclusions fixed by Invisalign
There are quite a few misconceptions around today about Invisalign and clear aligners. A common stipulation is that clear aligners are only effective for small, minor bite problems. But this is simply not true.
As experienced orthodontists and cosmetic dentists, we have seen just how successful Invisalign can be in treating the following:
- Crooked and overcrowded teeth
- Overbites, underbites, and crossbites
- Gaps up to 6mm wide

Invisalign has been a gamechanger at advancing traditional orthodontics.
The strong and invisible plastic aligner system has helped millions of people and orthodontic patients across the globe, providing better aesthetics and effective repositioning.
- Occurs when the upper teeth bite over the bottom teeth – the cause of this can be genetics, poor oral habits or an overdeveloped bone structure.
If you have an overbite, it’s likely important that you have this problem fixed to avoid future oral health and hygiene issues that can encourage the formation of infections like gum disease.
Overbites with Invisalign can take anywhere from 9-12 months depending on the severity of the overlap.
- This happens when the lower front teeth protrude over the upper teeth, often occurring when the upper jaw is underdeveloped or the bottom jaw is overdeveloped (sometimes a combination of the two).
An underbite can make chewing very difficult as the front teeth and molars are prevented from functioning normally.
The negative oral health consequences of ignoring an underbite can lead to the deterioration of teeth, making them become worn as well as causing jaw joint issues.
