Is Invisalign for Me?

clear braces in Encinitas and San Marcos CA for bad bites

If you’re looking for a great way to correct bad bites or get straight teeth, Invisalign clear braces could be the solution for you! They can solve a myriad of dental issues and make your smile a knock out. The following are a few of the issues that Invisalign clear braces have treated effectively.

Teeth Spacing:

Overcrowded Teeth

This occurs when there is not sufficient room in your jaw to allow all of your teeth to fit comfortably. When this issue is left untreated, a mouth with overcrowded teeth can lead to an increased possibility of developing gum disease. Additionally, it makes the cleaning of your teeth much harder. Invisalign clear braces are very effective in correcting teeth that are overcrowded and making them into a glorious smile with fabulous straight teeth.

Widely Spaced Teeth

This occurs when there is too much space in your jaw. Invisalign clear braces are an excellent choice to provide straight teeth in this situation.

Bad Bites:

Crossbites

One of the most common bad bites issues is a crossbite. These occur when your upper and your lower jaw is not aligned properly. It will usually cause a couple of the teeth in your upper jaw to bite onto the inside of your lower teeth. This can happen in the front or the sides of your mouth. Left untreated, the problem can cause excessive wear on your teeth as well as gum disease and in some cases bone loss. Invisalign clear braces repair this and give you straight teeth you can display with pride.

Overbites

One of the bad bites that Invisalign clear braces can treat is an overbite. This is when your upper teeth are overlapping your lower teeth. This is usually attributed to over development of the jaw bone or genetics. Left untreated, an overbite may lead to irritation or problems with the gums and wear on your lower teeth. Eventually it may lead to pain due to problems with the joint in your jaw.

Underbites

This is a problem that is signified by your lower teeth protruding over your front teeth. An underbite is usually the result of overgrowth of your lower jaw or undergrowth of your upper jaw. This can prevent normal teeth function and cause excessive wear. Invisalign clear braces do a wonderful job at correcting this and providing you with gorgeous straight teeth.
