Invisalign is the “clear alternative” to ordinary braces. These removable plastic spacers can help adults and many teens correct a variety of issues. Invisalign is a powerful orthodontic appliance – that is, it naturally and safely treats problems related to the alignment of your teeth. Plus, Invisalign is discreet and convenient.
The conditions Invisalign can help you with include:
An overbite is when your upper front teeth close in front of your bottom teeth. This is one of the most common orthodontic concerns. Invisalign is highly effective at treating most adult cases.
Underbite is similar to overbite, but your lower front teeth close to a position in front of your upper front teeth. Invisalign can treat some cases, but more severe ones may require surgery.
In a crossbite, the upper and lower jaws aren’t fully aligned. Some upper teeth will be positioned inside your lower teeth when your mouth closes. Invisalign is helpful for most crossbite patients.
- Gap Teeth
Gap teeth describes wider than average spaces between any two teeth. Invisalign spacers are particularly effective in reducing space between teeth, improving both appearance and health.
- Open Bite
In an open bite, the two rows of teeth don’t meet up when the mouth is closed. Invisalign spacers can eliminate open bite symptoms in most adult patients without other treatments or surgery.
- Crowded Teeth
Each case of crowded teeth is different, but in all of them, there is insufficient room in the mouth for all the teeth to fit. Even severe cases of crowded teeth can usually be resolved by Invisalign.
- Crooked Teeth and Minor Orthodontic Imperfection
If you have generally straight teeth, but notice some smaller gaps or misalignment, Invisalign can almost certainly help you. Very fast results are often possible when making minor adjustments.
