Invisalign use has been a game changer for local orthodontists. The clear plastic aligners appeal to millions of patients around the world. The most appealing thing, of course, is better aesthetics.
But it’s not all about looks when it comes to orthodontic treatment. To fix certain problems, other options like braces may be more suitable. The key is to visit your orthodontist to determine the best treatment for you.
What Invisalign Can Fix
Invisalign is used to fix a range of problems, such as:
- Teeth alignment
- Narrow smile
Some orthodontic issues, though, respond better to Invisalign treatment than others.
Let’s take the example of a female patient experiencing overcrowding. This particular patient’s jawline didn’t have enough space for all her teeth to fit.
Overly crowded teeth can result in dental decay and other oral health problems. Thanks to Invisalign, though, patients can achieve straight teeth and incur less risk of oral health problems.
After treatment, the patient’s teeth were correctly positioned after just 10 months of treatment.
Another big advantage of Invisalign braces is that they can successfully repair and straighten crooked teeth. Sometimes, patients aren’t happy with the results they get with traditional braces and feel self-conscious about their appearance. Some people also experience problems with their braces and decide to change over to clear aligners.
In such cases, we can remove the traditional braces and create aligners to achieve a stunning set of perfectly straight teeth.
Some people suffer from severe gaps between the teeth. This can be due to a number of reasons, but it’s often the result of a difference in jawbone sizes and the size of the teeth. Large gaps can leave you feeling frustrated and insecure. Fortunately, Invisalign can help.
Custom made clear aligners can transform your smile, moving your teeth into position, closing the gaps and helping you achieve a beautiful smile.
