What Can Invisalign Fix?

If you’ve been considering orthodontic treatment to improve your smile, you may have come across Invisalign as an option. Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces, providing a discreet and convenient way to straighten teeth. In this article, we will explore how it works, and what dental issues it can fix.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign treatment involves the use of clear, custom-made aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. These aligners are made from a smooth and comfortable plastic material, making them virtually invisible when worn. The aligners are designed to be worn for approximately 20 to 22 hours a day, and they are changed every one to two weeks to accommodate the movement of your teeth.

What dental issues can Invisalign fix?

Correcting misaligned teeth

One of the most common dental issues the aligners can fix is misaligned teeth. Whether your teeth are crowded, crooked, or have gaps between them, Invisalign can help to straighten them and improve their alignment. The aligners exert gentle pressure on your teeth, gradually moving them into the correct position over time. This can result in a more aesthetically pleasing smile and improved oral health.

Addressing gaps and spaces with aligners

Invisalign is also effective in addressing gaps and spaces between teeth. These spaces can be a result of missing teeth, small teeth, or abnormal jaw growth. Aligners can be customized to close these gaps, bringing your teeth closer together for a more harmonious smile. By closing the spaces, Invisalign not only improves the appearance of your smile but also helps to prevent food impaction and potential gum problems.

Invisalign for overcrowded teeth

Overcrowded teeth occur when there is insufficient space in the jaw to accommodate all the teeth properly. This can lead to teeth overlapping, twisting, or being pushed out of alignment. Invisalign can be used to address overcrowded teeth by creating necessary space and aligning the teeth in a straighter position. By straightening overcrowded teeth, Invisalign not only improves the appearance of your smile but also makes it easier to clean and maintain good oral hygiene.

Invisalign for overbites and underbites

In addition to correcting misaligned teeth and addressing gaps and spaces, Invisalign can also fix overbites and underbites. An overbite occurs when the upper teeth protrude over the lower teeth, while an underbite is when the lower teeth protrude in front of the upper teeth. Both conditions can cause jaw pain, difficulty in chewing, and speech problems.  Aligners can be tailored to gradually shift the teeth and correct the bite alignment, resulting in improved functionality and a more balanced facial appearance.

Benefits of Invisalign treatment

There are several advantages to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces. One of the primary benefits is the aesthetic appeal of aligners. Unlike highly visible metal braces, aligners are virtually invisible when worn. This makes them an excellent choice for individuals who wish to straighten their teeth discreetly.

Another advantage of aligners is their convenience it offers. The aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, brush, and floss without any restrictions.
