What is bite correction and why is it important to my oral health?

Many people have misaligned bites. Whether you have an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, the alignment of your teeth can affect the health of your entire mouth and, in turn, the rest of your body. Bite correction brings your bite back into alignment and alleviates many of the common issues related to a misaligned bite.

Common Issues of a Misaligned Bite

  • Wear and tear on your other teeth
  • Pain and tenderness in the jaws and temporomandibular joint
  • Chewing and speaking difficulties
  • Self-consciousness and reduced self-esteem

Dr. Maher is a certified provider of Invisalign. This system uses plastic aligners that are practically invisible to guide your teeth into the proper position and correct your bite.
