Does Invisalign work for any Straightening issues

Invisalign is one of the most popular teeth straightening systems available today. It is used worldwide and utilizes the most advanced technology to precisely straighten teeth into pre-determined positions

Invisalign uses a series of fully removable aligners that are made from thin, strong, clear BPA-free plastic. These are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth and to gradually move them into positions predetermined in your treatment plan. This system is incredibly simple to use, as you only need to wear the aligners for approximately 22 hours each day, ideally only removing them for meals and whenever you wish to brush and floss. Every set of aligners is designed to be worn for one or two weeks, after which they are discarded so you can begin wearing the next set in the series. This continues until your treatment is complete.

Some people may think that Invisalign aligners will only work for minor teeth straightening issues, but the Invisalign System can also be used to treat a range of moderate to severe teeth straightening issues including overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, crossbite, overbite, and underbite.

Below is a quick rundown of images that shows before and after treatment and see how amazing the Invisalign treatment work

Overcrowded Teeth:

This occurs when there’s simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can lead to plague accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.

Widely Spaced Teeth:

The opposite of overcrowded teeth, widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw due to small-sized teeth, abnormal growth of the jawbones, genetics, missing teeth, and/or tongue protrusion. Missing teeth causes the surrounding teeth to shift due to the extra space, creating gaps in your teeth that can lead to gum problems (due to a lack of protection by the teeth), periodontal pockets, and increased risk of periodontal disease.

Crossbite:

This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and sides of the mouth. Left untreated, this issue can cause wear of teeth, gum disease and bone loss.

Overbite:

Overbite occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It’s typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth. This can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth, and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.

Underbite:

The opposite of overbite, underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the upper front teeth. It’s usually caused by the undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. This can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars that can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
