Correction of Under Bite:

Invisalign Case II (narrow upper jaw, cross-bites):
Patient wanted to close the front gap without resorting to wearing metal braces. He chose Invisalign because the aligners are nearly visible, easy to clean and still can fix his smile. Due to job relocation, he moved to the East Coast in the middle of treatment. Yet he was able to fly in twice a year and finish treatment at our office.
