Benefits of Overbite Correction with Invisalign
Invisalign claims their mandibular advancement offers many benefits:
- Clinically proven treatment
- Improved compliance
- Greater patient comfort
- Reduced treatment time
Many of these benefits are simply those that they claim for Invisalign treatment generally.
Invisalign doesn’t post the clinical evidence about overbite correction on its website. However, in the years since Invisalign started offering overbite correction, multiple studies show Invisalign can correct overbite. However, overbite correction with Invisalign is limited, typically about half the amount of overbite correction possible with fixed braces.
Many people in Irvine adhere to Invisalign treatment protocol because it’s so easy to do. There are few restrictions when you have Invisalign. You get to eat and drink whatever you want, and it’s easier to brush and floss with Invisalign than traditional braces.
Without wires and brackets to poke and scrape, many people report that Invisalign is more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. In addition, switching aligners can happen more regularly than tightening braces at an Irvine dental office. This means reduced discomfort compared to orthodontic tightening appointments.
In the past, Invisalign offered comparable treatment times to normal braces. However, modern Invisalign techniques and plastics helped cut Invisalign treatment time almost in half, which means that you might be able to get faster results with Invisalign than traditional braces.
