Too work effectively, Invisalign requires self-discipline and patient compliance. Those who wear their aligners for less than 22 hours a day will see much slower results, and while a couple of hours here or there won’t derail your progress, forgetting to wear them for a week can have more serious consequences.

An overbite is a common type of malocclusion in which the upper teeth stick out too far ahead of the lower teeth. It’s possible for some cases to be hereditary. However, most overbites are caused by jaw development problems. A young child’s habits, like thumb-sucking and tongue-thrusting, can cause the jaw to develop atypically.
