    I've decided it's about time to pretty up my teeth, but I have an
    underbite. One or two previous orthodontists wanted to fix my bite
    BEFORE braces, which I don't want to do. Admittedly, this was at least
    10 years ago though. They warned me of how I'd have headaches, blah
    blah blah. I'm fine and have not probs with underbite.

    Anyone out here have experience with this? I always wondered why not
    just hang me from the ceiling and put braces on!

    thanks.

    Being a dentist, I would advice, though opting braces is an easier way but Invisalign would be perfect to fix your problem.The invisalign treatment which has been around for more than a decade is a great alternative to braces because you wear clear aligners that are both comfortable and invisible.

    Can you only get Invisalign if you don't have crowding? I wanted Invisalign but was told I wasn't a candidate because of my crowding and underbite.

    Have you seen his/her underbite? Invisalign won't correct a jaw discrepancy, no matter what their technicians tell you to sell a case.
