Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign® doesn’t require the use of metal or wires, and it is almost undetectable.
What Invisalign® can do
Invisalign® is ideal for patients who are uncomfortable wearing conventional braces, especially for teenagers. It is also great for patients with extreme teeth spacing issues.
Invisalign® can help treat the following problems:
Overcrowded Teeth. When teeth are overcrowded, they overlap and twist. The arches may be too small for the teeth, or the teeth may be too big to fit in the jaw. Medical issues like cleft lip or palate can also cause overcrowded teeth. If left untreated, crowding can lead to crooked teeth or other dental problems.
Underbite. When the lower teeth grow outward farther than the upper front teeth, there is an underbite. This condition is also called prognathism. Prognathism creates a bulldog-like look on the face of the patient.
Crossbite. Crossbite is a malocclusion in which a tooth (or more) has a more buccal or lingual position than its corresponding opposite tooth in the upper or lower jaw. In short, crossbite is a sideward misalignment of the arches.
Gap Teeth. Spaces can occur anywhere in the mouth but are most noticeable between the two upper front teeth. Gapped teeth are commonly caused by thumbsucking.
Open Bite. Open bite is a malocclusion, or “bad bite,” that may require an orthodontic interception to correct. An open bite occurs when the upper and lower arches are unable to meet when the jaws are closed.
How Invisalign® works
Once your Norlane dentist decides how to correct your bite, we’ll make a plan for aligning your teeth. If you get your clear aligners, you’ll be fitted for several sets that make slight adjustments to move your teeth over the treatment period.
The aligners are made from a transparent plastic or acrylic material and fit tightly over the teeth, but can be removed when eating, brushing, and flossing. You’ll get a new clear aligner every few weeks to continue moving the teeth into the desired position.
