What Orthodontic Issues Invisalign Can And Can’t Fix
Invisalign is a popular treatment method for creating straighter, more uniform smiles here in Stourbridge. But many of our patients – and prospective patients – want to know if it’s suitable for them. Many people are also interested in the types of cases Invisalign braces can treat. So, today, we’ll explain more about how clear braces work and typical problems it corrects.
An introduction to Invisalign
First, let’s look at how Invisalign braces get to work straightening smiles. The treatment process is relatively simple – your existing smile is scanned with modern technology; a computer then generates a 3D image of your smile; and finally, it calculates the precise movements each tooth needs to make for that perfect result. Each movement translates into the plastic aligners (or braces) you’ll wear during your treatment. This means you’ll be changing your aligners every few weeks to stay on track.
What Invisalign braces can and can’t treat
Many patients in Stourbridge choose Invisalign braces for generally straighter smiles, but the treatment can also help with orthodontic issues such as overbite and underbite (and other bite issues); crookedness and crowding; gaps; and misalignment. However, it may not be suited to every case and does depend on the severity. That’s why a consultation is ideal.
Benefits of Invisalign
There are a great many benefits to having clear braces treatment. These clear braces can not only adjust your smile over time, but can fix bite problems and prevent associated issues such as headaches, jaw pain, tooth wear and gum wear. They can also improve your oral health. By aligning the teeth properly, gaps are kept to the optimum size, meaning teeth can be easy to clean while plaque, food and bacteria are harder to build up between them.
