Overbite causes nighttime drooling and chronic cavities

You Hello! I'm a 48 year old woman with an overbite that prevents my mouth from closing. I can close it while awake but I drool a lot at night as I can't sleep on my back. This causes chronic cavities despite good oral hygiene. I sleep on cloth diapers to catch it but would love a solution to prevent my front teeth and gums from being dry all night. My front teeth are in terrible shape despite thousands of dollars each year in dental work. Do you know of any possible solutions?

Well if it's about straightening your teeth, preventing cavities from forming, or achieving the perfect smile, clear aligners are the perfect solution for all. If you are unable to close your mouth at night, you can use clear aligners to solve that problem. It doesn't matter how old you are; you can still have that bright smile on your face. Gaps in teeth or overbites of teeth can be fixed with teeth straightening kits which are available online as well.
