A Comfortable Experience

Our goal is to make our patients as comfortable as possible during their appointment. A friendly reminder.

We now have weighted blankets, noise canceling headphones and fidget cubes for our more anxious patients to feel more comfortable. If you believe your child would benefit from any of these, please don’t hesitate to ask during your appointment.

Invisalign Treatment: Over Bite

Invisalign at Hineslty Orthodontics is all about the patient. As one of the best places for Invisalign treatment in Ann Arbor, invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements that Dr. Hinesly plans out for you.

Invisalign is able to treat a variety of bites, including an overbite. An overbite is when your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth. Most people have at least a little overbite. Like any other uncommon bite, it can have an affect on your speech, the way you eat food and can cause unnecessary wear and tear on your jaw and teeth.

This is how an overbite is transformed over time using clear aligners.

Based upon our treatment plan, customized Aligners will be constructed for each individual situation. Full treatment averages 6-15 months. Call today for your complimentary orthodontic evaluation and see how easy and convenient Invisalign can be for you!
