My Top and Bottom Teeth Don't Align: Will Invisible Aligners Help?

If you’ve ever thought about how your top and bottom teeth don’t align, you’re not alone. You may think that only drastic measures, like jaw alignment surgery, can help. But there are other options available, including invisible aligners.

Can Invisible Aligners Help if Top and Bottom Teeth Don’t Align?

Is there a solution to fixing the alignment of your top and bottom teeth? Well, the answer depends on a few factors.

Invisible aligners are an option for many. They're clear mouthpieces that go over your teeth. They put gentle pressure on your teeth to slowly move them into proper dental alignment over time.

The American Association of Orthodontists states that clear dental aligners can help move teeth and align jaws. "If your underbite or overbite is caused by your teeth, it can be corrected using aligners,” Payam Ataii, DMD, tells ishonest Connect to Care. However, Ataii clarifies that aligners cannot correct a physical problem with your jaw. A combination of jaw surgery and aligners can address such issues.

“If it’s not a severe skeletal issue and more of a bite correction, then invisible aligners are a solution to a misaligned jaw,” Michaela Tozzi, DMD, tells ishonest Connect to Care.

The consensus is that if you have a jaw structure issue, aligners might not help. But if the teeth themselves are causing the misalignment, invisible aligners are an option.
