Crossbite

What you need to know about transforming your smile with Invisalign® treatment.

For demonstration purposes only.

What is a crossbite?

When you close your mouth and some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth — rather than on the outside, like they normally would — your doctor calls this a crossbite.

What kinds of problems can a crossbite cause?

A crossbite can make your teeth wear down or chip. It can also make your gums start to recede or make little notches above your gum line.1 This kind of damage can lead to painful gum problems or even bone loss.2

Can Invisalign clear aligners fix a crossbite?

Yes, Invisalign clear aligners can fix some types of crossbite. We can help you find an experienced Invisalign doctor who can show you what Invisalign treatment can do for you.

The iTero digital scanning system eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth by creating a 3D digital scan of your teeth. It offers a fast and more comfortable experience and it’s more accurate, resulting in a more precise fit from your Invisalign aligners.
