The Invisalign treatment consists of clear aligners that are worn over the teeth. Each aligner shifts the teeth into position little by little until they are eventually straightened. At Millpond Family Dental, Invisalign is used to treat mild to moderate orthodontic concerns such as crooked teeth, gaps, or bite issues. Invisalign uses a series of custom-fitted aligners to gradually move teeth into their optimal position.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Your Invisalign aligners are designed to correct more than just your appearance. The aligners are also designed using state-of-the-art technology to shift your teeth into proper alignment, which can benefit your dental health.
In addition to straightening your teeth, your Invisalign aligners may also prevent or reduce your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.
Invisalign clear aligners are easy to remove, making them extremely convenient for eating and oral hygiene. Simply take them off when eating, brushing, and flossing. This allows you to continue your normal activities without too much interruption. Invisalign aligners are also clear, so they blend in with your teeth and won’t stand out while you’re wearing them.
What Types of Dental Issues Can Invisalign Correct?
Gaps Between Teeth
Invisalign is ideal for correcting minor spacing issues, such as gaps between teeth. Trays are custom-made to fit each patient’s mouth, designed to shift position and alignment of the teeth to their proper place and closing any gaps such misalignment may create.
Overbites occur when your upper teeth overlap your lower teeth. Often genetic but can also be caused by thumb sucking and pacifier use in childhood, overbites can cause difficulty with chewing, talking, and jaw pain. Invisalign effectively treats and corrects an overbite by gradually shifting your teeth.
An underbite is caused when your upper teeth fall too far past your lower teeth. This can cause problems with chewing, talking, and oral health. Invisalign’s gradual shifting of the teeth’s positions can correct an underbite.
A crossbite occurs when the teeth in the upper jaw overlap the teeth in the lower jaw. This can cause the teeth to not align correctly, which can lead to other problems as time goes by. Invisalign can correct a crossbite by gradually moving the teeth into alignment through a series of aligners.
If you have gapped, crowded, or misaligned teeth, Invisalign could be the treatment you need. Invisalign clear aligners are designed to gradually shift your teeth into their desired position. Once your teeth are in their proper alignment, you will be able to keep your smile healthy and looking its best.
A deep bite can create several problems for patients. A deep bite can lead to the appearance of a “gummy” smile, where the gums appear to cover too much of the teeth.
The front teeth can collapse inwards as well, causing aesthetic issues. Additionally, a deep bite can cause the teeth to wear down prematurely.
