Invisalign is an alternative to braces and is virtually invisible to the rest of the people. Invisalign can straighten the teeth, with the help of aligners that are clear, customized, removable appliances, without using any brackets or wires. Many patients claim that they find using these aligners much more comfortable, as they are removable and are not permanent fixtures as well.
What are the problems that can be fixed using Invisalign?
Invisalign can help in correcting any kind of tooth misalignment or malocclusion. If you have crooked teeth and improper bites, then you should get them fixed; or if left untreated, they can lead to dental health complications. Other problems that can be fixed are:
Gaps: Gaps can lead to decay and gum infection. Invisalign can help in bringing the teeth together and close any considerable spaces between teeth.
Crowding: Crowding takes place when teeth grow too close together, displacing each other. Crowding can make it hard for you to brush and floss properly, increasing the risk of gum disease or tooth decay.
Improper Bite: The teeth misalignment leads to an improper bite, which can cause several other jaw complications. The common type of bite problems includes an overbite, underbite, and crossbite. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is also another condition that is associated with bite issues.
