Why Do I Still Have an Overbite?

Q.
Hi there Dr Hutchinson. Recently I had Invisalign to sort out my overbite and crooked teeth. However since I finished the treatment which took 18 months, I’ve noticed that my overbite is as bad as it always has been, if not worse than it was before! My teeth are definitely straighter but they don’t meet the way they should do and I feel as though my overbite is very noticeable. What should I do? I’ve paid a lot of money and don’t want to spend any more but I’m certainly not happy. My orthodontist seems to think this is normal.

Hello, thank you very much for your question. It’s very important that you talk to your orthodontist in full detail about the issues you have. They will probably be able to put your mind at rest and explain your treatment properly. You could do some light research or even get a second opinion if you’re still not sure.
