So is Invisalign treatment the right treatment option for you?

What dental conditions can Invisalign clear aligners treat?

Overbites

If your upper teeth overlap or close in front of your lower teeth, you might find it difficult to bite and chew food and it can even affect your speech. Invisalign treatement can help move your teeth so your top and bottom teeth align.

Underbites

An underbite involves the opposite - your bottom teeth close in front of your upper teeth. This can cause your teeth to get damaged and create speech difficulties. In the same way that Invisalign treatment can help with an overbite, it can also help move your lower teeth back so they are in line with your upper teeth.

Gap teeth

Having gaps or excess space between your teeth can affect your confidence. It can also cause food to get caught between your teeth, which can result in pain and gum disease. Invisalign clear aligners can help move your teeth to close the gaps and create a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing smile.

Crossbite

A crossbite is a condition where your upper teeth sit inside your lower teeth, which can cause your teeth to chip and wear and your gums to recede. Invisalign clear aligners can help move misaligned teeth into the right place for a brighter smile.

Open bite

If your upper and lower teeth don’t meet, Invisalign treatment can help realign your teeth into their correct position so your bite meets again.

Crowded teeth

If your teeth don’t fit well into your jaw and, as a result, bunch up, overlap and twist, they are considered overcrowded. You might experience increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease as overcrowded teeth increases your susceptibility to having food stuck between your teeth and tartar and plaque build up. By realigning your teeth with Invisalign clear aligners you are able to adjust and avoid further complications.

Crooked teeth

Misaligned teeth can cause excess wear and tear to your teeth, gums and jaw, which can result in cracked teeth, jaw strain and speech difficulties. Invisalign clear aligners can help you get the straighter teeth you have always wanted.

If you want to treat a dental condition or simply enjoy a straighter, more confident smile, Invisalign treatment presents a clear, easier to maintain and more comfortable alternative to other dental treatment options.
