Overbite is a misalignment of the bite causing the upper front teeth to mostly or entirely cover the lower front teeth.
*Treatable by an Orthodontist
Overbites are normally the result of having a small lower jaw. The lower front teeth may bite into the roof of the mouth and experience crowding issues as a result of the poor alignment.
If you don’t fix it
Because an overbite is a jaw alignment problem, not just a teeth alignment problem, depending on the severity your orthodontist may want to first correct the jaw alignment, using a Motion 3D appliance or another method, before finishing your treatment with Reveal® Clear Aligners.
How to correct
Because an overbite is connected to jaw alignment problems, a clear aligner may not be sufficient to correct the problem. Some cases are treatable with aligners like Reveal, however. If you have an overbite and want to see if you qualify for Reveal Aligners, contact a doctor near you.
