Invisalign braces are clear dental braces that undetectable to the eye and are commonly used to correct:
- Gaps between teeth
A popular option for those wanting clear ceramic braces, the Invisalign treatment comprises of a number of custom-made and custom-fitted aligning trays that are adjusted and changed every few weeks by Dr. Chapala & Associates in order to properly coincide with your changing tooth configuration. Additionally, the aligning trays can be taken out temporarily for special occasions. The success rate of Invisalign is evident in the multitude of satisfied customers and their stunning smiles.
Bite Problems that Invisalign Treatment can Correct
The Problems Frequently corrected using Invisalign include:
- Gaps between teeth – these can occur because of missing teeth or because of the irregular growth of the jaw.Crossbite – this occurs when one or more of one’s upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth, resulting in gum disease, abnormal teeth wear and possible erosion of the bone.
- Overcrowding – this happens when there is not enough space in the mouth for the teeth to straighten naturally and can result in tooth decay and increase the chances of gum disease.
- Underbite – this occurs when one’s lower teeth extend further than, or conceal, the upper teeth, resulting in possible TMJ and jaw aches.
- Overbite – this happens when one’s upper teeth extend further than, or conceal, the lower teeths, resulting in possible TMJ and jaw aches.
Advantages of Invisalign over traditional Orthodontics (Braces & Veneers)
When choosing a method to straighten teeth, one must make multiple considerations. Three common methods of teeth-straightening include braces, dental veneers and Invisalign. Each of these methods must be considered and the circumstances must be understood in order to choose the most appropriate method surrounding the situation. Extremely similar results can be obtained by using either braces or Invisalign, however there are differences in the methods. Invisalign requires that the patient is more dedicated as they must manage the removable tray and be committed to the treatment. The other difference is that Invisalign is very comfortable and almost invisible to the naked eye and is thus more aesthetically pleasing.
Invisalign is a preferred method of teeth straightening compared to veneers as Invisalign actually works to visibly straighten teeth. Dental veneers are a thin layer of material permanently placed over teeth. Since the teeth must be etched prior to the veneers being placed on, if one was to remove the veneers, a substitute cover would have to be created. Veneers are also often rather expensive and are susceptible to damage and usually do not last more than 20 years.
