What Orthodontic Issues Can Invisalign® Treatment Fix?

Featured Image

Invisalign® treatment is an exciting solution that millions have trusted for fixing their smiles. This exciting approach to orthodontics uses removable aligners that comfortably straighten your teeth and correct various orthodontic concerns. The system produces predictable results, less pain, more comfort, and faster results. Plus, it is much easier for you to care for your teeth while on the Invisalign program than traditional braces.

During your consultation with our team at Made Ya Smile of Pearland, TX, we’ll help you find an Invisalign treatment plan that fits your needs. The great thing about Invisalign treatment is it is available for people of all ages, including children, teens, and adults.

Here’s a closer look at some of the smile issues you can get fixed with Invisalign treatment.

Gaps in the teeth

Invisalign aligners can fix gaps between your teeth by repositioning the teeth to move toward each other. The system keeps the teeth together and protects the gums, as there are fewer exposed spots on your gums as the teeth move closer to each other.

Crowded teeth

You can also use Invisalign aligners to resolve cases where the jaw doesn’t have enough room for the teeth to fit together. Your aligners can adjust the teeth to stay together while having an even amount of space between one another.

Bite problems

Our dentists at Made Ya Smile of Pearland can also correct the three most common bite issues you may have with your smile, such as an overbite where the upper front teeth close over the lower front teeth, an underbite where the teeth appear the other way around, and crossbites where the upper and lower jaws aren’t linking together. Invisalign aligners will move the appropriate teeth forward or backward to correct the bite problem, giving you a picture perfect smile.

Baby teeth concerns

Invisalign’s Phase 1 system helps kids who have a mix of permanent and baby teeth who need a straighter smile. Invisalign treatment can also help a child’s jaw develop to make enough room for the teeth to form and grow in the suitable spaces. This treatment works best for kids ages 6 to 10 years of age. It may require further corrective work years later, although it won’t be as substantial.

How long does this procedure take?

The timing for your Invisalign treatment will vary surrounding the intensity of your condition, with most patients requiring it for about 12 to 24 months. You’ll need to keep your aligners in for about 20 to 22 hours a day, plus you will require new aligners every few weeks to keep the effort working while still being predictable.
