Five Dental Problems You Can Correct with Invisalign

Do you want to improve the look and function of your smile but can’t bear the bulk of traditional braces? There’s an alternative to metal braces called Invisalign®, which is an almost completely clear set of braces that can effectively correct many dental issues without the conspicuous look of traditional metal braces. To see if this alternative to metal braces is the best treatment for you, discover the five cases where Invisalign is ideal.

  1. A Gap in Teeth

Gaps in teeth are due to the abnormal growth of the jawbone, as well as missing teeth that create extra space and cause nearby teeth to move. In addition to affecting your appearance, gaps in teeth can also contribute to gum problems and a higher risk of periodontal disease.

  1. Overcrowded Teeth

This occurs when there isn’t enough space in your jaw for your teeth to fit properly. If not corrected with clear braces, the overcrowding can worsen and leave other teeth very crooked, as well as lead to tooth decay and an increased risk of gum disease.

  1. An Underbite

This occurs when your lower front teeth extend in front of your upper front teeth. It can be caused by many factors, including the overgrowth of the lower jaw, the undergrowth of the upper jaw, or many missing upper teeth. Since this can lead to pain and problems with jaw function, you should see an Invisalign provider as soon as possible to discuss treating the trouble with clear braces.

  1. An Open Bite

This happens when your teeth do not make proper contact and leave you with a space between your upper and lower teeth. It can impair the way you speak, as well as cause severe jaw pain and disorders like TMJ.

  1. A Crossbite

When your upper and lower jaws are misaligned, this makes it impossible for your upper and lower teeth to meet. A case of crossbite can lead to tooth erosion, gum disease, and eventual bone loss.

If you are experiencing any of these problems, seek out an Invisalign provider as soon as possible to correct these issues and save your smile.
