What type of bite problems does Invisalign correct?
Invisalign corrects the same dental problems as traditional braces; the only difference is that Invisalign is almost invisible to the naked eye. The length of your treatment will of course depend on the severity of your case. Dr. Emma will review your individual situation and talk with you about your treatment plan.
Invisalign has been clinically proven and successful in treating:
- Overcrowding – When there is too little space for the teeth to align normally.
- Large gaps between teeth – This may occur because teeth are missing or because the jaw has abnormal growth.
- Cross bite – This common dental problem occurs when one or more of the upper teeth bite inside the lower jaw.
- Under bite – This condition is the opposite of overbite; lower teeth project further than or completely over the upper teeth.
- Treating jaw pain and TMJ that are the possible result of overcrowding, cross and under bite.
