Clear removable braces, also known as clear aligners, are an effective orthodontic treatment that can correct a variety of dental problems. While many people associate clear aligners with straightening crooked or crowded teeth, they can also be used to correct bite and jaw problems. In this blog, we’ll explore how clear removable braces can correct bite and jaw problems, so you can better understand how this orthodontic treatment works.
What Are Bite and Jaw Problems?
Bite and jaw problems refer to a range of conditions that can affect the alignment and function of your teeth and jaw. Some common bite and jaw problems include:
- Overbite: This occurs when the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth.
- Underbite: This occurs when the lower front teeth protrude beyond the upper front teeth.
- Crossbite: This occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not align properly.
- Open bite: This occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not touch when you bite down.
- Jaw misalignment: This occurs when the jawbone is not properly aligned.
How Can Clear Removable Braces Correct Bite and Jaw Problems?
Clear removable braces work by gradually shifting your teeth into their proper position. By doing so, they can also help correct bite and jaw problems. Here’s how:
- Overbite: Clear removable braces can shift the upper teeth backward and the lower teeth forward, reducing the overlap between the two.
- Underbite: Clear removable braces can shift the lower teeth backward and the upper teeth forward, reducing the protrusion of the lower teeth.
- Crossbite: Clear removable braces can shift the teeth into their proper alignment, correcting the misalignment between the upper and lower teeth.
- Open bite: Clear removable braces can apply pressure to the back teeth, causing them to grow downward and close the gap between the upper and lower teeth.
- Jaw misalignment: Clear removable braces can also help correct jaw misalignment by shifting the teeth into their proper position, which can reduce strain on the jaw.
