An overbite occurs when your upper front teeth overlap or swell past your lower front teeth. Sometimes just the teeth are in the wrong place or the entire jaw is in the wrong place. Invisible braces can correct overbite but depend upon the severity.
Crossbite means misalignment of teeth. If you ignore the issue, it can lead to severe gum pain. Invisible braces can correct crossbite within a few months and are great for people who do not have severe crossbite problems.
Invisible braces are an excellent choice for individuals with gaps in their teeth. Visible spacing in teeth can affect the aesthetics of your smile and may contribute to tooth decay and gum disease, so it's advisable to use invisible braces for a straighter and healthier smile.
An underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude beyond the upper teeth. This misalignment can lead to difficulties in chewing and speaking, as well as jaw pain. With invisible braces, this can often be corrected within 6 to 18 months depending on the severity of the condition.
An open bite occurs when there is a space between the upper and lower front teeth even when the jaws are closed. This can lead to issues with biting and chewing food properly, as well as speech impediments. Fortunately, invisible braces can help resolve the issue.
Crowding occurs when teeth overlap due to insufficient space in the jaw, making it difficult to clean between them and increasing the risk of decay and gum disease. Invisible braces fix this by gently moving teeth into position. However, the treatment can vary depending on the extent of the crowding.
Midline deviation is when the center line of upper and lower teeth is misaligned, causing an asymmetrical smile and jaw issues. Invisible braces correct this by aligning the teeth for a more harmonious and balanced smile.
To begin the treatment most companies offer an at-home impression kit or in-office digital scans to evaluate your dental issues.
