Whether you have overcrowded or widely spaced teeth, a crossbite, overbite or underbite, Invisalign can help by gradually straightening your teeth with clear invisible braces. This technique uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. They are comfortable and because they’re made with medial grade plastic, they are virtually invisible. The aligners are removable so your daily brushing and flossing are not affected in any way and you can eat anything you fancy.
When teeth are misaligned they can be difficult to clean. Gaps and crowding can exacerbate the buildup of bacteria, making the development of periodontal problems likely. The resulting gum disease has been linked to overall health issues, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and a host of other systemic troubles.
Once the Invisalign treatment is complete, your bite will be corrected, and chewing and possibly even speech improved. Realignment also relieves stress on the supporting bones and jaw joints, preventing future problems.
