Invisalign’s popularity is rising, and it’s no surprise why. People want to fix their smile without the cumbersome look of metal and wires in their mouth. Invisalign is very different, yet offers the same results.
Invisalign uses clear plastic trays that fit over your upper and lower teeth. The aligners gently reposition your teeth to the desired location. This is a modern alternative to traditional braces, however Invisalign is not for everyone.
A consultation with a certified Invisalign provider is the only way to determine whether they are a good fit for you. There are a few other factors that can contribute to your candidacy.
What Does Invisalign Correct?
Invisalign works for most dental issues, but is not designed to correct issues that are too severe. For large issues like an overbite, more advanced orthodontics are necessary to shift the jawbone.
Invisalign is a great orthodontic solution for:
- Protruding teeth
- Mild overbites
- Mild underbites
- Gaps in teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Excessive central tooth overlaps
- Imperfect positioning of teeth when the mouth is closed
- Mildly crooked teeth
Mild dental issues can be caused by genetics, oral diseases, injury, and even thumb sucking. Crooked and misplaced teeth are not just a cosmetic issue, but commonly lead to serious dental issues. Gingivitis, periodontal issues, jaw pain, earaches, and headaches are all issues that can be a direct cause of ill-positioned teeth or dental issues.
