7 Common Orthodontic Issues That Invisalign Can Fix

7 Common Orthodontic Issues That Invisalign Can Fix

If you’d like to improve your smile with Invisalign in Schertz, TX, you may be wondering if it’s right for your orthodontic needs. What issues can Invisalign fix, and is it right for you? Let’s discuss seven of the most common orthodontic issues that can be treated by Invisalign at Strahler Dental Partners.

Underbites

An underbite happens when your lower jaw sticks out further than your upper jaw. This can make your jaw look very prominent, and prevent your lower and upper teeth from coming together properly. Invisalign is a great option for treating underbites. With Invisalign, you can improve your appearance, and ensure that your teeth meet properly. This prevents tooth wear and other complications.

Overbites

As you may guess, an overbite is the opposite of an underbite. In an overbite, your upper jaw sticks out further than your lower jaw. This may make your chin look weak or “sunken.” And, like an underbite, this prevents your upper and lower teeth from contacting each other properly, which can lead to future dental complications. Invisalign can be used to treat most overbites, and correct your jaw position.

Crossbites 

Crossbites happen when most, or some of your upper teeth fit inside your lower teeth. Normally, your teeth are supposed to meet each other when your mouth is at rest. But if your upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth, this is a crossbite. 

A crossbite is similar to an underbite. But in an underbite, all of your upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth. In a crossbite, only some of your upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth. Invisalign can be used to correct the position of your teeth, and treat crossbites.

Open Bites

In an open bite, there is a gap between your front upper and lower teeth and they do not overlap at all, even when you clench your teeth shut. An open bite can be caused by genetic problems with the teeth and jaw, or by childhood habits like thumb sucking or an improper swallowing action. In most cases, Invisalign can be used to treat open bites.

Gaps In Teeth

Invisalign is commonly used to help correct gaps in the teeth. If your teeth are smaller than usual or are not properly aligned, you may have a gap between your front teeth, or abnormally large gaps between your other teeth. With Invisalign, you can close these gaps and get a more even, appealing smile.

Crooked Teeth

Invisalign is a very common treatment for crooked teeth. If your teeth are not properly aligned, you can correct their position with Invisalign. Dr. Strahler and Dr. Penshorn can move them into the proper position, and ensure that your teeth are aligned vertically for a healthier and more attractive smile.

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth can happen when your teeth are too big or your jaw is too small. Your teeth may overlap and look like they're right on top of each other. It’s common for some of your teeth to be pushed forward or backward due to crowded teeth, too.

With Invisalign at Strahler Dental Partners, you can treat crowded teeth. In some cases, additional treatment may be necessary, such as extractions to make room in your mouth. Dr. Strahler or Dr. Penshorn can help you explore your options in more detail after your orthodontic appointment.
