What Can Invisalign Treatment Fix?
Invisalign treatment can effectively fix a wide range of orthodontic issues, including:
- Crowded Teeth:
When teeth are too close together, it can be difficult to properly clean them, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign aligners can gently shift your teeth into the correct position, creating more space between them and improving your oral hygiene.
- Gaps Between Teeth:
If you have gaps between your teeth, Invisalign can help to close them, giving you a more even smile.
An overbite occurs when the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth too much. Invisalign can gradually shift the position of the upper teeth, reducing the overlap and creating a more harmonious bite.
An underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude in front of the upper teeth. Invisalign can help to reposition the lower teeth, correcting the bite and improving the overall appearance of your smile.
A crossbite occurs when the upper teeth bite down on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause wear and tear on the teeth and jaw pain. Invisalign can correct a crossbite by gradually aligning the teeth and bite.
- Open Bite:
An open bite occurs when the upper and lower teeth don't meet when the mouth is closed. This can cause speech difficulties and difficulty eating. Invisalign can correct an open bite by shifting the teeth into their proper position.
How Invisalign Treatment Works
The Invisalign treatment process involves several steps:
During your initial consultation, we will assess your teeth and gums, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if Invisalign is the best option for you.
- Treatment planning:
We will use advanced 3D imaging technology to create a digital model of your teeth and plan the precise movements needed to achieve your desired results.
- Aligner fabrication:
Your custom-made Invisalign aligners will be fabricated using state-of-the-art technology and shipped to our office.
You will wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, switching to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks as your teeth gradually shift into place.
- Follow-up appointments:
We will monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your treatment stays on track.
