Frequently Asked Questions and Answers About Invisalign

Many people who have alignment or bite problems can benefit from Invisalign treatment. However, an individual assessment is required to ascertain whether it can improve your smile. 

To help you learn more about Invisalign and its capacity to correct overbite, we’ve put together this FAQ.

What is Invisalign?

A series of transparent, removable aligners are worn during the Invisalign treatment process to straighten your teeth gradually. There are no wires, brackets, or restrictions like there are with metal braces.

The thermoplastic material used to create Invisalign aligners was made especially for the Invisalign treatment.

Your cosmetic dentist will develop a customized digital treatment plan that specifies the precise movements of your teeth. Based on your treatment plan, Invisalign clear aligners are made to apply the proper force to the appropriate location at the right time.

Who Can Use Invisalign?

Not all patients are candidates for Invisalign. The best candidates for this system are typically adults, adolescents, and preteens with bite or alignment problems who are most compliant with wearing the trays.

Teenagers and preteens make the best candidates for Invisalign treatment for bite problems like an overbite because it can correct the bite during growth to ensure proper alignment in adulthood. Adults can get their overbites fixed with Invisalign, though it might take longer.

What Are the Benefits of Using Invisalign?

Aligners from Invisalign are essentially invisible. With these virtually invisible aligners, no one will ever know you are wearing them, making Invisalign a seamless addition to your daily activities and interactions.

Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you may eat whatever you want while undergoing treatment by simply taking them off. To keep your mouth healthy and your breath fresh, take out your aligners, brush, and floss as usual.

There are no metal brackets or wires, unlike traditional fixed braces. This implies that you will spend less time at your Invisalign provider’s office making adjustments.

Last but not least, Invisalign lets you view your virtual results and treatment plan before starting treatment, enabling you to picture how your teeth will look once treatment is finished.

Can It Fix an Overbite?

One of the many bite problems that Invisalign can correct is overbites. The lower jaw can advance and align with the upper jaw with the help of the precise mandibular advancement wings attached to the aligner trays’ sides. The overbite will be corrected as the lower teeth eventually line up with the upper teeth.

For patients with mild to moderate overbite, Invisalign is most effective at correcting jaw alignment issues.

Using Invisalign, tooth crowding and spacing issues can be resolved during bite correction therapy. To give you the best smile, the trays can gradually move these teeth in any direction: horizontally, vertically, or rotated. 

Let the dentist know about any concerns you have with your smile during your initial consultation. After that, they can make a computerized model of what your teeth will appear like following a successful Invisalign treatment using the scans.


Invisalign is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to have straighter teeth without the inconvenience of traditional braces. You will achieve the same results but with the added convenience of removing your aligners when eating and drinking or whenever you want to take them out!
