Why Has My Bite Changed?

August 12th, 2014

Hi Drs. I’m really concerned about my bite. I recently finished my Invisalign treatment and have noticed a change in my bite from when I started. I thought it was because of the aligners doing their job during the treatment but obviously now the problem is still here. My molars don’t touch when I close my jaws and it doesn’t feel right. My dentist told me the aligners wouldn’t affect my bite but obviously this is not true. Will I have this problem forever now or is there something that can be done to put it right?

What Is The Best Treatment To Fix My Cross-Bite?

May 15th, 2014

Hello. I have a mild cross-bite. It’s been bothering me for some time now. It’s only really noticeable when I smile but I grind my teeth in my sleep, which obviously won’t help the matter! I think it’s making my bite worse! I’m looking into braces to help the situation, is there anything that you can recommend before I approach an orthodontist? I don’t really know what to ask for. Is there any brace that is especially for a cross-bite? Thank you!

My Aligners Have Changed My Bite, What Should I Do?

January 22nd, 2013

Hello, Doctor Thorne, I hope you can help me with this. I have recently had invisalign and I noticed that my bite did change during the treatment but I had assumed that it was because of the aligners affecting my bite. But I’ve stopped treatment now and the problem is still there. my molars dont touch at all and it feels so weird and just not right. Can you do something about this or am i stuck with this problem forever. I did ask my dentist if it would have any effect on my bite and he said it wont have any affect on your bite at all. any advice you can give would be great. Thanks,
