Can Invisalign Work For Your Condition?

Posted on: 6 January 2015

Dental braces have been used for a very long time to correct several dental misalignment conditions.Some  people do not like their metallic and quite visible nature, despite them being effective. To many, the fear is in looking dorky or weird when wearing braces. Invisalign braces solve this problem by introducing an invinsible, custom- made and comfortable solution for braces. Invisalign braces are removable. Over a course of weeks, invisalign aligners will align your teeth as your dentist constantly adjusts them until your perfect smile has been achieved:

Overcrowded teeth

Many people end up with more teeth growing on one jaw beyond the normal set. This results in teeth misalignment due to lack of space. On visiting a dentist, some of the teeth may have to be removed or realigned. Once removed, the dentists use invisalign to move the remaining teeth towards a specific orientation and projection.

Invisalign aligns teeth painlessly by exerting directional force over a period of time to your teeth. The dentist adjusts the clear aligners gradually thus the several trips to the dentist after invisalign has been installed.

Spaced teeth

Spaced teeth introduce chewing problems and may at times result in gum disease. Some people have teeth growing too widely apart. Just as braces would, invisalign helps compact these teeth and eliminate the wide spaces. Invisalign is more comfortable and colorless or clear. You therefore need not worry about looking like a freak in public whenever you smile or laugh heartily.

Cross bites

These occur due to a misalignment of the jaws. One or more teeth on one jaw bite on the inside of the lower teeth. Cross bites can be quite uncomfortable besides giving your smile a disproportional look.  They occur either in the front teeth or the side teeth. Invisalign braces, in this case, help push the inward biting teeth outward. The result seeks to restore the normal teeth resting on co-teeth alignment of both the lower and upper jaws hence a perfect bite.

Deep bites and under bites

Deep bites result when the upper front teeth significantly overlap with the lower teeth and as a result, bite over the lower gum.  Under bites, on the other hand, result from a protrusion of the lower teeth beyond the upper gum. Both these cases can easily be corrected using invisalign braces. The aim here would be to adjust the more advancing teeth and restore them to a good aligning position with the rest of the teeth. Whichever case you have invisalign braces can be the better option.
