Common Orthodontic Issues Fixed by Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Not everyone is blessed with perfectly straight teeth. The good news is that orthodontic treatments are available for individuals who want to do something about that. Perfectly aligned teeth aren’t only for beauty purposes, it’s also something vital for your overall oral health.
However, wearing braces as an adult could be a little troublesome, not to mention embarrassing. This is why Invisalign® treatment is such a great choice to take care of crooked and misaligned teeth because it’s more discreet than conventional braces. Not only that, Invisalign® aligners are easy to maintain compared to normal braces.
The following are some of most common dental misalignment issues that can be corrected with the help of Invisalign® aligners:
Gaps between the teeth happen due to the abnormal growth of the jawbone. In some cases, the space causes other teeth to shift or move and this creates misalignment and gaps in your teeth.
The majority of cases of dental gaps can be effectively treated using the Invisalign® clear aligners. During the course of the treatment, the teeth are moved into the correct positions by the aligner trays.
An underbite is a condition where the lower teeth protrude past the upper front teeth. This condition is caused either by the overgrowth of the lower jawbone or the undergrowth of the upper jawbone. People with underbite often have trouble eating as their upper front teeth and molars do not fall in place with the lower ones.
Invisalign® clear aligners can help treat mild to moderate cases of an underbite. If the patient suffers from a severe case of underbite, it might require further surgical corrections before the Invisalign® treatment.
Teeth crowding is a common condition and is simply due to the lack of enough space in the jaw for all the teeth to fit normally. If left untreated, overcrowded teeth can lead to severely crooked teeth, which leads to gum diseases and tooth decay. With the help of Invisalign® aligners, you can halt the situation and you won’t need to worry about your teeth getting crooked or having food caught in hard to reach spots.
A crossbite is a condition where both the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. This can cause one or more of the upper teeth to bite inside or outside the lower teeth, Crossbite occurs on both the front and sides of the mouth, leading to wear and tear of the teeth. With early detection and Invisalign treatment, the condition could be rectified, maintaining your teeth’s natural structure and alignment.
