Is Invisalign® treatment right for you? Whether your issue is simple or more complex, for many people the answer is yes! Here our CCOA dentists share some of the bite issues that can be treated with Invisalign clear aligners.
Whether you just want to improve the overall appearance of your smile, or correct a complex orthodontic issue, Invisalign clear aligners may be right for you. To find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign contact your CCOA member dentist to book a consultation, but in the meantime here are a few of the bite issues that adults and teens can correct with Invisalign.
Patients with overbites have upper front teeth that overlap with their lower front teeth. This issue can cause a number of issues, such as teeth wearing down and jaw pain. While most people have an overbite to some degree, if your overbite is too large contact your CCOA dentist to find out how Invisalign treatment can help.
An underbite is when the mouth is closed and the lower teeth are in front of the upper teeth. Patients with underbites often find it difficult to chew properly or speak clearly. An underbite may also cause teeth to wear down quickly. Depending on the severity of your underbite, Invisalign treatment may be able to help. Contact an experienced CCOA dentist to find out whether Invisalign can discreetly correct your underbite.
A crossbite is when you close your mouth and some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth while others are sitting outside your lower teeth. Crossbites can cause teeth to wear down or chip easily. Receding and notched gums can also result from a crossbite, which can be painful or even lead to bone loss. Some types of crossbite can be fixed with Invisalign clear custom aligners, contact your CCOA dentist to find out more.
