What Kind of Bite Problems can Invisalign® Correct?

Invisalign® is a treatment for people who are self-conscious about their teeth and want to improve their smile. This type of treatment does not require you to wear metal braces to correct misaligned teeth. Instead, the alignment of your teeth is controlled by an orthodontist who creates a series of custom-made invisible aligners that you wear over your teeth throughout the day. 

Invisalign in Lawton is a removable treatment, so you can remove them whenever you want. As Invisalign aligners are removable and reusable, you can wear them again whenever you want. You will see a dramatic improvement in the appearance, function, and comfort of your smile after the Invisalign treatment.  

We will now see into different dental problems Invisalign can correct.

  • Overcrowding

Overcrowding refers to the excessive number of teeth that are crowding the space. If this is not corrected, it will lead to serious periodontal problems, which, in turn, may lead to permanent tooth loss. Overcrowding can be caused by various reasons such as poor dental habits, lack of proper oral hygiene, and genetics. The Invisalign treatment can provide a solution for overcrowding.

  • Large gaps between teeth

Invisalign can be of great help if you have large gaps between the teeth. It is most likely that in your younger days, you were too busy to pay attention to your oral health. This often leads to periodontal problems such as gum disease, tooth loss, and the development of an unattractive smile. With Invisalign, you do not have to worry about these problems anymore.

  • Crossbite

A crossbite can be caused by an incorrect bite and progression of malocclusion, which are both not good for your oral health. Invisalign aligners can correct this problem in just 2-3 months and effectively eliminates the need for metal braces. 

  • Overbite

Overbite refers to the situation when the front teeth of your upper jaw extend beyond the teeth of your lower jaw. This is a very common problem and is mainly caused by an incorrect bite, genetically inherited characteristics, and poor dental habits. Invisalign can offer you a permanent solution for all these problems.

  • Underbite

An underbite is the situation when the lower jaw protrudes beyond the upper jaw. It is usually caused by an incorrect bite, genetics, or oral habits. Invisalign can correct this problem in just a few months of treatment.
