When there's insufficient space in the jaw for all teeth to fit properly, crowding can occur, leading to overlapping or twisted teeth. These can be hard to clean, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign can straighten crowded teeth, creating more space and enhancing oral hygiene.
Gaps between teeth can be due to genetics, thumb-sucking habits, or injury. These gaps can cause self-consciousness and make it challenging to eat certain foods. Invisalign can help close these gaps, enhancing the appearance and function of the teeth.
An overbite happens when the upper front teeth overlap significantly with the lower front teeth. This can cause difficulty in biting or chewing and can increase the risk of tooth wear or injury. Invisalign can help adjust the position of the upper and lower teeth, reducing the severity of the overbite.
An underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth. This can cause difficulty in biting or chewing and can lead to jaw pain or discomfort. Invisalign can help adjust the position of the lower and upper teeth, reducing the severity of the underbite.
A crossbite happens when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when biting down. This can cause uneven wear on the teeth and can increase the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Invisalign can help correct the alignment of the teeth, reducing the severity of the crossbite.
An open bite occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not touch when biting down. This can cause difficulty in biting or chewing and can lead to speech problems. Invisalign can help move the teeth into proper alignment, closing the open bite and improving function.
