How can I correct a cross bite where my lower jaw is stronger than my upper jaw?
I have a cross bite and my lower jaw is stronge than my top. Its not very prominent but to me my teeth look uneven.I saw one dentist who said i coud have invisalin lite to treat the front area or full set to widen out my smile. i saw a 2nd dentist and they said full set only . Then finally I saw a third who said invisalign is not for me as will nned brace. He said that whilst my teeth will be straight they may not sit comfirtably so must cosider actual bracr instead. I am so confused. The first dentist who advised invisalign lite or full smile is a Platinum dentist and comes recommended. What should I do ?
Generally speaking , fixed orthodontic braces will give you a much better result than Invisalign, especially when it comes to correcting difficult problems, such as crossbites. I have treated almost 500 people with Invisalign but when a person comes to see me and they have very complicated problems then I refer to our in-house specialist orthodontist.
If you’re in London we can certainly help
At this stage I’d suggest you seek the advice of a Specialist Orthodontist, or accept the Full Invisalign and do what you can with it. Invisalign Lite is very limited in what it can do so I’d avoid that unless you want something compromised.
hope that helps you decide?
