A CLEAR ALTERNATIVE TO BRACES
Invisalign is an excellent option to correct crowded teeth and gaps in teeth when conventional braces aren’t desired. Sometimes referred to as clear braces, Invisalign is the least intrusive way to straighten your teeth and correct your smile. They’re an advanced aligner system, custom made for each patient for straighter results. The clear trays make the process almost invisible, and allow for patients to remove them to eat, brush, and floss normally.
Improving Teeth with Invisalign
Invisalign can provide a fix to many regular dental problems. They not only straighten but correct problems such as overbite, underbite, and crossbite. This method can fix all of the following cases below:
Having crowded teeth is a normal problem to have. However, cleaning crowded teeth is a challenge and sometimes they don’t get the proper cleaning they need. As a result, it is more likely to lead to plaque build up, tooth decay and lead to gum disease.
Having gapped teeth might not seem like that big of an issue besides that of a cosmetic one. However, they can lead to periodontal pockets or even periodontal disease.
If you need an implant to finish off your picture perfect smile, Invisalign can prepare areas for implants. They can maintain the space within your smile for the operation in your future.
Due to overdevelopment of the supporting bone, genetics, and poor oral habits, overbite is present in todays dental problems. Underbite is present because of the undergrowth of the upper jaw or undergrowth of the lower jaw. Without fixing, both bites can lead to multiple problems. Such problems can be joint problems, worn down bottom teeth, and sometimes a painful jaw.
Your teeth can be worn down when your jaws are not aligned properly. Hence, cross-bite can also lead to bone loss and gum disease, if not fixed properly.
If your teeth don’t touch opposing teeth when you take a bite, you are suffering from open bite. This problem can cause temporomandibular joint disorder, along with speech impairment and painful chewing.
