When Invisalign first became available to dental patients in 1999, the technology was hailed as revolutionary. Adults who wanted to have their teeth straightened were given an option they could have only dreamed of in years prior. Since Invisalign was introduced in dental offices around the country, more than one million people have successfully had one or more of the following conditions treated with Invisalign dental aligners:
Two malocclusions that have traditionally been treated by metal braces, but for which Invisalign is now frequently prescribed, are overbites and underbites. If your top teeth rest in front of or behind your lower teeth rather than on top of them, then Invisalign can help correct your bite.
In some people, the jaw continues to grow abnormally after all of their teeth have grown in. This often results in gaps between the teeth, which can have a negative impact on a person’s smile and gum health. Invisalign can eliminate gaps between your teeth, even if the gaps are from missing teeth.
The converse problem to gapped teeth, crowded teeth are difficult to clean and make people feel dissatisfied with their smiles. To prevent your crowded teeth from becoming crooked and decayed, speak with your dentist about Invisalign as a possible treatment option.
From mild to severe, Invisalign can correct a range of malocclusions. In addition to those already discussed, open bites and crossbites of varying degrees can also be treated with the invisible teeth straightening technology.
