A radiant smile is a powerful asset, and achieving straight, well-aligned teeth is now more accessible than ever, thanks to advancements in orthodontic technology. Invisalign®, a revolutionary teeth-straightening system, offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign® is a dental treatment that is available here at FACEmed Dentistry in Essex.
What Does Invisalign® Do and How Does It Work?
Invisalign® is a modern orthodontic treatment that utilises clear, custom-made aligners to gradually straighten teeth. The treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment by a trained Invisalign® provider who will create a digital 3D model of the patient’s teeth. Based on this model, a series of clear aligners are custom-crafted to fit the individual’s unique dental structure.
Patients wear each set of aligners for about 1-2 weeks, and the aligners gently and incrementally shift the teeth into their desired position. The process continues with the patient progressing through the series of aligners until the desired alignment is achieved. Invisalign® effectively addresses issues such as crowded teeth, spacing, overbites, underbites, and more, providing a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces.
Can Invisalign® Fix an Overbite?
Yes, Invisalign® can be an effective solution for correcting an overbite. An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap excessively with the lower front teeth. Invisalign® works by gradually adjusting the position of the teeth to achieve a more balanced and aligned bite. The treatment plan is personalised to each patient’s specific needs, and the clear aligners discreetly and comfortably encourage the correction of the overbite over time.
Can Invisalign® Fix an Underbite?
Invisalign® is also capable of addressing underbites, where the lower teeth protrude beyond the upper front teeth. Through the same gradual adjustment process, Invisalign® aligners work to bring the lower teeth into a more harmonious alignment with the upper teeth. Treatment plans are tailored to the severity of the underbite and the individual characteristics of each patient’s dental structure.
Can Invisalign® Close Gaps?
Yes, Invisalign® is effective in closing gaps between teeth. Whether the gaps are the result of missing teeth or natural spacing issues, Invisalign® aligners are designed to gently move the teeth into the desired position, effectively closing gaps over the course of the treatment. This makes Invisalign® a versatile solution for individuals seeking to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of their smile.
