If, after reading the title, you’re unsure as to what an “open bite” is – or if you need help with it – here’s an explanation. Leaving a space between your lower and upper teeth, an open bite is a misalignment. Metal braces are frequently used by dentists to treat this condition, traditionally. But a less invasive and more comfortable treatment option is Invisalign.
Is this the kind of treatment you could benefit from? Might traditional braces be your only option? Do you even have to worry about “open bite”? You need answers.
