Invisalign Before and After Worst Cases
Nothing inspires more than looking at the successes of Invisalign in extreme cases of underbite, overbite, crossbite, gap teeth, overcrowding, and various other dental issues. While there is always apprehension before spending thousands of dollars, the Invisalign before and after worst cases pictures are always helpful in confidence-boosting. Some cases need retainers and others do not.
Here the pictures have other information like progress by months, weeks, aligners, retainers if used or not, etc. Use them for your inspiration by watching these Invisalign severe cases before and after pics.

Invisalign Overbite Before and After Braces
How long does it take to correct an overbite?
Although the length of your overbite treatment will vary, it will usually take up to two years to completely correct an overbite. In general, it will take us longer to fix a severe overbite. If your teeth problems are fairly minor, you should be able to correct this problem in a shorter amount of time.
Does fixing overbite change face shape?
If you have more severe dental problems, receiving this orthodontic treatment may change the shape of your face. Fixing your overbite can alter the appearance of your face by improving the harmony between your facial features.
Invisalign Before and After Underbite – Braces Pictures
An underbite is a term for a dental condition characterized by lower teeth that extend outward farther than the upper front teeth. Most certified oral surgeons are able to successfully correct underbites. Several common types of surgery to correct underbite include reshaping to lengthen the upper jaw or shorten the lower jaw. In some cases, the use of wires, plates, or screws may maintain proper shape of the jawbone
An underbite is more than just a cosmetic issue. While some people may learn to live with mild cases, severe cases may cause oral health problems, such as:
difficulty biting and chewing food
challenges with speaking
mouth and face pain due to misalignment of the jaw
Invisalign Before and After Crossbite – Braces Pictures
Are your teeth misaligned? You may have a crossbite. Crossbite – sometimes called an underbite – is a form of malocclusion, or bad bite, that results in rows of teeth that overlap improperly.
A crossbite is a dental condition that affects the way your teeth are aligned. The main sign of having a crossbite is that upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth when your mouth is closed or at rest. This can affect teeth in the front of your mouth or toward the back of your mouth.
A crossbite or underbite occurs when the bottom teeth jut out past the top teeth, either in the front teeth or the rear teeth, rather than a correct bite, where the top teeth fit snugly over the bottom teeth with a very tiny overbite.
Crossbites and underbites come in a range of shapes and sizes. This tutorial will explain what a crossbite is, what symptoms to look for when diagnosing one, and how to treat one. A wonderful smile and a proper bite can be achieved with the help of quality orthodontic therapy from a certified, competent orthodontist.

Some FAQ on Braces Before and After
How quickly do teeth move with braces?
You should expect to notice minor shifts in your teeth approximately 4 weeks from after bonding. Greater shifts that are more visible require more time as they become noticeable after approximately 2-3 months.
How long do braces last?
Most patients will need to wear fixed braces for around 18 to 24 months. For problems that are harder to correct, or for our older patients, treatment may take up to three years. If you have less severe issues or are a good candidate for clear aligners like Invisalign, treatment may take as little as 6 to 12 months
Can braces move your teeth in a week?
As a general rule, your total time in braces will be between 18 and 24 months. In that time, you can start to actually notice the changes in your teeth’s appearance as early as four weeks from being fitted. But two or three months is the average expectation
Does face shape change after braces?
No. They do not. Even though braces can adjust the width of your upper jaw, they don’t extend into the structures that affect the shape and size of your nose.
Why do braces take 2 years? Why the process take long?
Because braces are moving teeth that are attached to bone, the process cannot be rushed. Bone is solid and teeth must be gently guided into new positions with consistent pressure. If the process were rushed, serious and perhaps permanent damage may occur to your bone, teeth, or gums.
Can you have braces for only 3 months?
Again, the actual time depends on the patient’s specific needs but since adult teeth have stopped growing and are set, they require more pressure to move. This means many adult patients can look to have braces anywhere from 18 months to about three years. I hear some kids have to wear braces even longer!
Do you get top and bottom braces on the same day?
In addition, it is normal to start treatment by having the braces installed on the top teeth first. The top teeth and jawbone take longer to align and move compared to the bottom teeth. After a period of time, based on what needs to be done to the bottom teeth and jawbone, the bottom braces are then installed.
What age is best for braces?
The ideal age for braces
Early adolescence, or between the ages of 10 and 14, is widely considered the ideal time to get braces. That’s because preteens and younger teens have all (or nearly all) of their adult teeth in place, and their softer jawbone tissue is still quite responsive to repositioning.
Why arent my teeth straight after braces?
Teeth Can Shift After Braces
Teeth aren’t permanently attached to your mouth with braces. They are simply guided in a way to make them straight. When braces are removed, the teeth no longer have that barrier. This can lead to shifting.
There are two types of crossbites: anterior and posterior.
When the front bottom teeth protrude further than the front top teeth, this is known as anterior crossbites. The four incisors and canines on each row of teeth make up the front teeth. Approximately 4-5 percent of the population is affected by anterior crossbites. Crossbites can be addressed with orthodontics, but for severe cases in adults, a combination of orthodontics and surgery is required to set back the lower jaw and produce ideal outcomes.
Posterior crossbites are a type of incorrect bite in which the back bottom teeth (pre-molars and molars) protrude more than the top bottom teeth. Crossbite can occur on either one or both sides of the mouth. Posterior crossbites are more prevalent, affecting about 16% of the population, and can be treated with an expander, a typical orthodontic equipment.
