What Issues Can Invisalign Treat?

healthy teeth

Invisalign is a popular treatment because of its ability to treat a wide array of problems in a comfortable and discreet manner. If you are suffering an overbite, underbite, misalignment, or gaps in your teeth, talk to your dentist to find out if this is the right procedure for you. Keep reading to take a closer look at the issues that Invisalign can treat.

Crowding

If your jaw does not have room to accommodate all of the teeth that are growing in, you may experience overcrowding. When you have too many teeth trying to fit into a space, your teeth may become crooked and your wisdom teeth may grow in impacted. The more overcrowding you experience, the more difficult it is to properly care for your teeth. If you cannot easily practice proper oral health, your teeth will be more vulnerable to the growth of plaque, which can ultimately lead to an increased risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

Misalignment

If your jaws are misaligned, you will experience either an overbite or an underbite. This can impair the functioning of your teeth and lead to complications with your gums and jaws. When your natural bite involves your top teeth biting over your lower teeth, you have an overbite, which can be detrimental to your lower teeth. The opposite condition, an underbite, occurs when your lower teeth extend further than your upper teeth, which can also lead to wearing of the teeth and impairments in function.

Gaps

A number of factors can contribute to gapped teeth, such as missing teeth and irregular growth of the jawbone. This condition may seem superficial, but it actually puts you at an increased risk for serious gum problems like periodontal disease.
