Conditions Treated by Invisalign
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment that uses a series of thin, nearly invisible plastic aligners to straighten and align your teeth gradually. Traditional braces rely on brackets, wires, and rubber bands, but Invisalign uses SmartTrack®. SmartTrack is an FDA-approved thermoplastic that’s incredibly durable and free of all allergens, including BPA, BPS, latex, and gluten.
If you have mild or moderate orthodontic problems and you want to address them discreetly, you’re probably a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
What are some conditions treated by Invisalign?
At Omni Dental Specialty, the orthodontists regularly prescribe Invisalign to correct:
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
You might also benefit from Invisalign treatment if you have a bite problem such as crossbite, open bite, underbite, or overbite.
How does Invisalign treat crowded teeth?
If your jaw doesn’t have enough room to fit all of your teeth, they might bunch up, overlap, or twist. Not only does this negatively impact the appearance of your smile, but it also makes brushing and flossing more difficult.
Invisalign aligners can fix crowded teeth. The team at Omni Dental Specialty creates a custom set of aligners that fit the unique contours of your teeth and gums. Slowly but surely, they apply pressure to your teeth, moving them into place.
How does Invisalign treat gapped teeth?
If you have extra space between one or more of your teeth, you have gapped teeth. When you have gapped teeth, pockets develop that collect food and plaque. Without proper care, these pockets may cause cavities or gum disease.
Invisalign oral aligners can close gaps between teeth. Before Invisalign treatment, your Omni Dental Specialty provider creates a custom mold of your teeth. Every 1-2 weeks, you return to the office to receive a new set of Invisalign aligners. Over a few months’ time, the aligners gradually close the gaps between your teeth.
How does Invisalign treat misaligned teeth?
If you have misaligned teeth, you’re more likely to bite your cheeks, tongue, and lips when chewing or biting. Crooked or twisted teeth are also harder to clean.
Invisalign aligners address misaligned teeth by placing just the right amount of force and pressure on them. Over time, this straightens and aligns them, restoring your smile to a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing condition.
Can Invisalign correct bite problems?
Yes. The team at Omni Dental Specialty also uses Invisalign aligners to correct common bite problems, including:
- Open bite
