An open bite is any spot in your smile where your upper and lower teeth don’t touch when you bite down. Teeth in an open bite often have a protruded appearance.
*Treatable by an Orthodontist
An open bite most often appears between upper and lower teeth at the front of the mouth as a result of habits like thumb-sucking or tongue-thrusting.
If you don’t fix it
Open bites can make it very difficult to speak clearly or to use your teeth to bite into foods like sandwiches and apples.

A clear aligner is an excellent way to fix an open bite. If you have an open bite that you would like to correct, Reveal® Clear Aligners are an excellent way to fix an open bite.
