Orthodontic issues go beyond appearance, affecting dental health and general satisfaction. Overbites, underbites, and crossbites all create unique challenges, which Invisalign® in Tamiami discreetly and efficiently handles in addition to the primary goal of straightening teeth.

An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth greatly overlap the lower front teeth. Invisalign’s  custom-designed aligners gradually rearrange upper and lower teeth, decreasing the overbite. These aligners exert regulated pressure on individual teeth, promoting a more balanced alignment. 


In contrast, underbites occur when the lower front teeth protrude beyond the upper front teeth. Invisalign corrects underbites by deliberately shifting lower teeth back and upper teeth forward. This targeted movement corrects the underbite, improving function and appearance. 


Crossbites occur when the upper and lower jaws are not laterally aligned, leading some upper teeth to bite into lower teeth. Invisalign corrects crossbite by guiding teeth into a more aligned position. Clear aligners may be used in conjunction with attachments to correct lateral misalignment and establish a balanced bite. 

In addition to these specific corrections, Invisalign offers several benefits. 

  • Removability: Invisalign aligners are readily removed for eating, cleaning, and flossing, allowing for better oral hygiene than traditional braces. 
  • Discreet Treatment: Clear aligners are almost undetectable, making them an ideal choice for those who desire discreet orthodontic care. 
  • Comfortable Wear: Invisalign aligners, made of smooth materials, reduce cheek and gum irritation, which is common with traditional braces. 
  • Predictable Outcomes: Advanced 3D imaging equipment allows precise treatment planning, providing patients with a comprehensive grasp of the expected outcomes before therapy.
