Invisalign® has become popular because of its ability to straighten teeth while being almost imperceptible to observers. But what problems can this adult orthodontic solution fix? During your initial appointment, Calgary dentist Dr. Gordon Chee can evaluate your teeth and bite and discuss whether or not Invisalign might be able to benefit you.
Invisalign® works similarly to braces, gradually shifting teeth and the bite into a more cosmetically and functionally sound alignment. However, where traditional braces use metal brackets and wires that can obstruct your smile and make it more difficult to talk, eat, and brush, treatment with Invisalign® consists of convenient, removable plastic aligners.
Along with a similar but less conspicuous mechanism, Invisalign® is also capable of correcting some of the same teeth and bite problems as braces, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bite (where upper and lower teeth don’t touch)
When left untreated, these issues can not only diminish the beauty of your smile but also cause pain in your mouth, wear on your teeth, and even make everyday functions difficult. The specific orthodontic treatment Dr. Chee might recommend will vary based on an assessment of your unique needs and goals for a better smile.
