What can Invisalign treat?


An overbite occurs when the upper teeth overlap in front of the lower front teeth. Overbites are extremely frequent, however they become a problem when the gap between teeth becomes too great. This can lead to early wear and tear, as well as jaw pain due to misalignment. This deep bite can be corrected with Invisalign, which shifts your teeth into a healthy position.


When your lower front teeth are in front of your higher arch of teeth, you have an underbite. This is usually caused by the lower jaw being too far forward. Underbites can make it difficult to eat and talk properly, as well as cause teeth to wear down. Invisalign can correct underbites in certain situations, but severe underbites may necessitate further oral surgery to prepare for orthodontic treatment.


The upper front teeth should be somewhat in advance of the lower front teeth in an ideal bite posture. When parts of your upper teeth are positioned behind your lower teeth, this is known as a crossbite. This can lead to wear and tear, chipping, and in some circumstances, gum recession. This can cause a lot of pain and perhaps bone loss. Some crossbites can be corrected with Invisalign, but we recommend scheduling a consultation to see which option is best for you.


Gaps between your teeth, while common, can make it difficult to keep food from becoming caught in the crevices. These gaps are also more likely to store germs that cause sensitive, aching gums and, if not treated promptly, can develop to gum disease. These gaps can be filled with Invisalign, giving you a straighter, more seamless, and healthier smile!


When the mouth is closed, the top and lower front teeth should normally touch. An open bite occurs when this is not the case. Chewing or biting certain foods can be challenging with open bites. The bite can be gradually repositioned using Invisalign until all teeth are aligned and sitting straight.


If you don't have enough room in your mouth for your teeth to sit straight, they can bunch up and overlap, making cleaning and flossing difficult. This is referred to as crowding. Brushing and flossing might be tough with crowded teeth. Plaque, tartar, and dangerous bacteria tend to build up if you are unable to keep a regular oral health care regimen at home. This can lead to tooth decay, cavities, and even gum disease over time. Invisalign can usually correct most cases of crowded teeth. Simply visit your dentist to determine if it is the best option for your smile.
