Unhappy with your smile but unwilling to get traditional metal braces? Consider Invisalign® treatment here in Austin. This advanced method of teeth aligning can help give you the smile you have always wanted in a discreet, comfortable way. Using invisible aligners, this treatment can help fix a wide variety of common dental issues.
What Can Invisalign® in Austin Help With?
Overbite – An overbite is a term for when the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth in the front of your mouth. A significant overbite can cause premature wear on your teeth and jaw, causing problems down the road. Invisalign® can help align the teeth in a more aesthetically pleasing way that is more comfortable when biting.
Underbite – On the other end of the spectrum is the underbite. This is when the lower teeth actually stick out further than the upper teeth. Not only can this cause unnecessary wear on your teeth, but it can also make it difficult to chew and even speak properly. Invisalign® can help with an underbite, but severe cases may require surgery on the lower jaw as well.
Gaps in the Teeth – Spaces in between your teeth can allow for food and bacteria to become stuck. This increases your odds of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign® can help close these gaps and protect your smile.
Open Bite – Sometimes, a person’s upper and lower teeth do not meet when they bite down. This is referred to as an open bite and it can make eating difficult. Invisalign® can help move the teeth into a better position and fix this issue.
Crossbite – If only some of your upper teeth sit behind your lower teeth when you bite down, you have what is known as a crossbite. This can add a lot of stress to your teeth, making them more likely to chip or even break. Invisalign® can help with many cases of crossbite.
Crowded Teeth – Sometimes, the teeth are simply too large for the jawbone. This can cause them to come in crooked, overlap, and bunch. People with crowded teeth often find it very difficult to floss and brush properly. Over time, you can develop gum disease and the issue of crowding can become even worse. Invisalign® aligners can help.
