Invisalign – Problems and Possibilities 

We’re now in an age where if you want straighter teeth but don’t want it to be too obvious that you’re wearing braces, Invisalign clear aligners make that possible. Say goodbye to the traditional metal wires wrapped inside your mouth and say hello to the future of clear braces. And just like the traditional method of correcting the alignment of teeth, Invisalign offers several different treatment types as well so that you get the same result.

Unlike most braces, Invisalign invisible aligners don’t require ANY metal wires, brackets, or anything fixed to the teeth (as you already are well aware, but it’s nice just to boast about it). Instead, the aligner trays fit right over your teeth and apply pressure in the right places to move them into their correct positions and give you that perfect smile.

Checkups and Schedule

Your dentist will give you a new set of aligners about every two weeks, so you’ll see you can watch your smile change step by step. Every 4-6 weeks or so, you’ll also get a checkup to see how your treatment is progressing and make sure everything is on the right track.

Alignment Problems

Invisalign offers such ease to the hassle of braces, you may wonder if it can still fix problems like traditional braces. Well, it very well can fix alignment issues just like any other type of braces. Invisalign’s clear trays that fit tightly over teeth are best for correcting minor tooth alignment issues. Not just the minor stuff either, but also all alignment problems like the following:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gap Teeth
  • Open Bite
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Generally straighter teeth

Reach out to your dentist for an examination and see if Invisalign is right for you. The sooner you find out, the sooner you can have all of your dental problems solved and on your way to a straight, clean smile.
