What Kind of Bite
Do You Have?

Three of the most common orthodontic concerns are overbites, underbites, and crossbites. An overbite is characterized by your top teeth overlapping with your bottom teeth, and an underbite is the opposite. A crossbite is when some of your top teeth rest inside your lower teeth. Most people have at least a slight overbite.

Health Risks Associated With Underbites/Overbites


Invisalign is a popular treatment for overbites, underbites, and crossbites. In severe cases, we may recommend surgery in addition to Invisalign to fix an overbite, underbite, or crossbite.

Growth Assessments

We offer growth assessments free of charge to ensure the healthy development of your child’s teeth. We perform assessments every 6-12 months to monitor oral hygiene and the need for orthodontic care. Issues with bites and jaw alignment typically manifest early on in a child’s life.

Dental Monitoring

At Impact Orthodontics, we take advantage of the proprietary Dental Monitoring app to make wearing Invisalign easier for you and your children. You can send us updates through the app, and we can tell you when to move onto your next set of aligners.

An underbite does not reverse on its own and, regardless of how mild, usually requires some form of treatment. Early treatment of an underbite is typically the most effective as it allows for a child’s permanent teeth to come in a better position. If your child has an underbite, the optimal age for treatment is between 7 and 10 years old.

Most people have at least a slight overbite, which is typically not a cause for concern. If your child has a severe overbite, Invisalign can help to correct the issue and reduce the need for jaw surgery in the future.

Severe underbites and overbites alter the position of the teeth and the tongue and may affect a child’s speech. In many cases, individuals with an underbite may talk with a lisp.
