For moderate cases of protruding or crooked teeth, to much more cumbersome dental issues such as malocclusion, overbite, or underbite, Invisalign® provides an effective solution. Whether your teeth are overly crowded, extensively gapped, or somewhere in the middle, Invisalign is a cost effective way to properly position the jaws and straighten teeth.
Gapped teeth – Abnormal jaw bone growth can create gaps in teeth along with missing teeth. Spacing issues and gaps may lead to larger problems such as periodontal pockets.
Overbite – Also known as “overjet,” this condition is typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone which supports the teeth.
Underbite – Typically a result from undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or a mixture of both. This impairs the normal functioning of the front teeth and rear molars, which can lead to teeth corrosion.
Open Bite – When upper and/or lower teeth fail to make contact with one another. Commonly cause by excessive thumb-sucking or genetically engineered jaw structure.
Overly Crowded – Occurs where there is limited room within your upper or lower jaw for teeth to sit comfortably.
Crossbite – When the jaws are misaligned, crossbite is prevalent. This condition may lead to tooth wear, gum disease and bone loss.
