Teeth Conditions Treatable with Invisalign

By Adam Russsell

Invisalign makes it possible for teeth to be straightened in a discreet manner, without the conspicuous metal parts included in traditional orthodontic braces. This orthodontic system uses smooth, plastic aligners that are custom-made; the aligners are virtually invisible to others so the teeth straightening can proceed discreetly. The absence of metal parts on the aligners makes it possible for the orthodontic treatment to be finished without the discomfort of metal wires and brackets that can cause mouth irritations and mouth sores.

Invisalign works by gently moving teeth into better alignment, without metal wires that need to be tightened periodically. Every two weeks, patients get a new set of aligners to facilitate the teeth straightening procedure as the teeth are moved into a straighter position. The plastic aligners can also easily be removed before eating or brushing the teeth, making good oral hygiene more convenient to manage while the orthodontic treatment is ongoing.

Cases Treatable with Invisalign Teeth Straightening
Overbite – An overbite occurs when the upper teeth cover the lower set of teeth. Also called overjet, this condition can cause premature wearing of the lower teeth as the upper row constantly rubs against them. An overbite can also result to problems on the jaw joint, and gum problems.

Underbite – The opposite of an overbite, an underbite occurs when the lower row of teeth covers the upper front teeth. This problem can cause the abnormal wear of the upper teeth and the molars, and can also lead to painful jaw joint problems.

Gapped or Spaced Teeth – Spaces in between teeth make the smile look incomplete and unhealthy. These gaps result when tooth loss causes the remaining teeth to shift their position; spaced teeth may also be the result of abnormal teeth growth and abnormal jawbone growth. Those who have spaced teeth have a higher risk of developing gum disease, since the spaces are not protected by the presence of teeth.

Open Bite – This condition occurs when some teeth do not come into contact with the teeth on the opposite row when the mouth is closed, causing problems with normal speech and difficulties in chewing or eating. Severe cases of open bites may also lead to the development of a TMJ disorder, or problems with the jaw joint.

Cross Bite – This problem happens when the upper and lower set of teeth are misaligned, causing some of the upper teeth to constantly come into contact with the inner portion of the lower teeth. The teeth can then suffer from premature enamel wear, and can also lead to the development of gum disease.

Overly-Crowded Teeth – This condition results when there are too many teeth, causing severe teeth overcrowding and crookedness. Overcrowded teeth are difficult to clean and are more prone to tooth decay and gum disease.
