Does Invisalign Work?

Many think that Invisalign aligners only work for minor teeth straightening issues but the Invisalign System actually treats a range of moderate to severe teeth straightening issues.

Bite crowded cir 877a2e9301bcaf69d4be37853ff1c5939b87987b0c6b01dba08cfc73afc2f8aa

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.
