The panacea for different dental problems

Better than braces

Before Invisalign appeared on the scene, the use of metal braces was the only option to straighten up staggered teeth. By any reckoning, it was an awkward thing to do. Apart from being unattractive, metal braces caused pain and irritation. They also hampered in maintaining proper oral care – like brushing and flossing. Regular eating/drinking also turned out to be an inconvenient activity.

Gaps between teeth

Gaps, or the spacing between teeth, are not only an aesthetic issue. Food may get trapped in the gaps, affecting the gum, which is soft and sensitive. If left unattended, over a period of time it could cause gum disease.

Invisalign treatment is an effective solution to close gaps. Though the treatment parameters may vary from patient to patient (depending on the quantum of spacing and location), Invisalign can be used to fix gaps between teeth.

Misaligned teeth

Also known as malocclusion, misaligned teeth is the imbalance or the lack of alignment of the upper and lower teeth. Apart from the problem of aesthetic appearance, malocclusion results in jaw pain as well as difficulty in chewing and speaking. There are three common types of misalignment issues:

  • Overbite – This condition occurs when the upper teeth jut out over the lower teeth.
  • Underbite – The opposite of overbite, this happens when the lower teeth extend in front of the upper teeth.
  • Crossbite – A lateral misalignment of dental arches leads to crossbite, where teeth stand up in their positions at odd angles.

By fixing the misalignment and shifting the bite, Invisalign can effectively treat all three types of malocclusion.

Crowding of teeth

Crowding of teeth can occur when the teeth can’t fit snugly into the space available in the jaw; they tend to bend, twist or overlap. It is aesthetically an unpleasant situation indeed. Moreover, crowding makes it harder to brush and floss effectively, leading to build-up of plaque, tartar and bacteria. It can also cause gum disease.

Invisalign treatment results in a gradual yet infinitesimal movement of teeth with each set of aligners, dissociating the overlapped teeth and eventually pushing teeth into their appropriate positions.
