Can Invisalign® treat your bite issues? For many people the answer is yes! Many simple and more complex bite issues can be treated with Invisalign clear aligners. Today our Surrey dentists explain more about Invisalign treatable cases.
Whether you just want to correct a complex orthodontic issue or simply improve the overall appearance of your smile, Invisalign clear aligners may be the ideal treatment option for you. To find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign contact your Surrey Straight Smile dentist to book a consultation, but in the meantime here are a few examples of bite issues that can be treated with Invisalign.
Patients with overbites have upper front teeth that overlap with their lower front teeth. This issue may cause problems, such as teeth wearing down and jaw pain. Most people have an overbite to some degree, but if your overbite is too large contact your Surrey Straight Smile dentist to find out how Invisalign's clear orthodontic aligners can help to correct your dental problems.
If you have an underbite you will notice that when your mouth is closed your lower teeth are in front of the upper teeth. Patients with underbites often find it difficult to speak clearly or chew properly. An underbite may also cause teeth to wear down quickly. Depending on the severity of your underbite, Invisalign treatment may be able to help. Contact the Straight Smile dentist nearest you to find out whether Invisalign can help to correct your dental issue.
If when you close your mouth, some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth while others are sitting outside your lower teeth, you may have a crossbite. A crossbite can cause teeth to chip easily or even to wear down. Receding and notched gums can also result from a crossbite, which can be painful or lead to bone loss. Some types of crossbite can be fixed with Invisalign clear custom aligners. Contact your Surrey dentist to find out whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment.
