Bite Issues That May Be Treated With Invisalign Clear Aligners
Whether you are looking to correct a complex or simple orthodontic issue or just improve the appearance of your smile, Invisalign may be the ideal treatment option for you. In order to find out for certain whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign contact your nearest BC Mainland Straight Smile dentist to book a consultation, but in the meantime here are a few examples of the bite issues that can be treated with Invisalign.
- If your lower teeth are in front of the upper teeth when your mouth is closed, you have an underbite. Patients with underbites often find it difficult to talk or chew properly. Teeth can also wear down quickly due to an underbite. Depending on the severity of your underbite, Invisalign treatment may be able to help. Contact the BC Straight Smile dentist nearest you to find out whether Invisalign can help to correct your underbite.
- Do your upper front teeth that overlap your lower front teeth? If so, then you have an overbite. While most people have an overbite to some degree, if your overbite is causing issues, or problems chewing properly or speaking clearly, contact your BC Straight Smile dentist to find out how Invisalign's clear orthodontic aligners can help to correct your overbite. This orthodontic issue can cause problems such as teeth wearing down and jaw pain.
- Do you have some upper teeth sitting inside your lower teeth while others are sitting outside your lower teeth? If so you might have a crossbite. A crossbite can cause teeth to chip easily or even to wear down more quickly than they should. 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 treatment. Contact your Mainland BC dentist to find out whether Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment to correct your crossbite.
