Here are three common dental issues that can be fixed with Invisalign.

Crooked Teeth

One of the most noticeable dental issues that millions of Americans suffer from is crooked teeth. Crooked teeth can occur through a number of different causes, though it is usually caused by your teeth not having enough space to properly fit in your mouth. This could be due to a number of different factors, but once you have crooked teeth, they will need to be moved back into their proper place slowly over the course of several months. This process will painlessly shift your teeth to their permanent position through wearing sets of custom-made Invisalign aligners. This gradual shifting will allow your teeth to easily migrate to their proper position without causing any pain and with no visual distractions. Once your teeth have been moved into their proper place you will most likely have to use a retainer at night in order to ensure that your teeth stay straight.

Overbites & Underbites

There are two main types of bite alignment issues: overbites and underbites. An overbite is when your upper jaw juts out and overlaps your bottom jaw. Though a slight overbite of one to two millimeters is not uncommon, both slight and severe overbites can be helped through an Invisalign program. Conversely, an underbite is when your lower jaw extends out further than your top teeth. Underbites are traditionally more noticeable than overbites and are more commonly caught and treated at an early age. Regardless of what kind of jaw misalignment you may have, an Invisalign treatment plan can easily help you get your teeth realigned and looking great.

Crowded Teeth & Gaps

The spacing of your teeth is extremely important. As designed, your teeth actively block out harmful bacteria, plaque, and other issues through a dense but secure positioning. When you get gaps in your teeth, that exposed area of gum, can become a breeding ground for bacteria and other dental issues. Conversely, if your teeth are too crowded, they will begin to slant, curve, and even become painful as your teeth vie for position, making it difficult to properly clean between adjacent teeth. Invisalign aligners can easily help your teeth move to the perfect spot through a series of custom-made aligners.

If you are looking to get the smile of your dreams without the hassle of bulky traditional braces, come into Gruelle Dempsey Orthodontics today. We will help you get the perfect teeth in just a few short treatment plans.
