My Overbite Needs Correcting As I Have TMJ Disorder. Are Invisible Braces Able To Correct My Narrow Arch Problem?

Q.
Hi Dr Gambroudes,

I am 28. I have an overbite (from sucking my thumb as a child) and slightly overcrowded mouth. My teeth don’t meet each other properly and cause me problems that similar to TMJ disorder such as neck problems etc.

I want to see an orthodontist, can you recommend one in South East area? Are they able to use invisible braces to correct my problem? Can braces correct a very narrow dental arch by making it wider or would braces only be able to push my front teeth backwards a bit?

Thank you for your time.

Hello and thank you for getting in touch. From what you’ve said it sounds like you may have to see a jaw specialist in addition to orthodontic correction. I would need to you in person to confirm this after a detailed assessment. You would also need to see an orthodontist to see if you are a suitable candidate for invisible braces. If you’d like further information on TMJ disorder and invisible braces you can find it through this website.
