2 Problems Invisalign can Fix

Published on September 25, 2019

Invisalign has been an alternative orthodontic treatment for patients who prefer to go with the clear aligners. Invisalign treatment is a technique that straightens your teeth without braces, using a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-modeled to fit your teeth. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile of which you will be proud. “Over 6 million people, including more than 1.4 million teens, have used Invisalign clear aligners to transform their smiles.”

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign has no metal bands or wires to trap food and plaque. Maintaining a good oral hygiene program will also reduce chances of plaque buildup, tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Of course most patients choose Invisalign because of the clear, clean look and overall aesthetic. Here are 2 orthodontic problems, Invisalign can correct.

Underbite
An underbite happens when your bottom teeth are in front of upper teeth. An underbite can cause your teeth to wear more quickly and create difficulties with speech. Invisalign can treat an underbite to move the lower teeth back so they naturally sit behind the front teeth.

This will greatly improve not only a patients smile, but overall health of their gums and their teeth will not wear out.

Overbite
An overbite is similar to an underbite, only an overbite occurs when the upper teeth are close too far in front of the bottom teeth. This makes chewing difficult, and can impact ones speech and put stress on an individual's jaw.

Invisalign has helped over 6 million people across the U.S. and many are right in our Mercer Island and Renton neighborhood. Schedule a consultation today and start your orthodontic journey.
