But a confident smile isn’t the only benefit of correcting your dental issues with custom-made Invisalign aligners. Your health can be positively impacted as well.

Invisalign can be used to correct teeth that are overly crowdedOverly crowded teeth: This occurs when there is a lack of room in your jaw for all of your teeth to fit. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay. There is an increase in chance of gum disease. It can also prevent the normal function of teeth.


 

Invisalign can be used to correct teeth that are widely spacedWidely spaced teeth: This occurs with abnormal continued growth of the jaw bone. When teeth are missing, this can also be caused by the other teeth shifting due to extra space. Spacing issues in teeth can cause some periodontal diseases.


 

Invisalign can be used to correct a jaw that has a crossbiteCrossbite: This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth. This issue can cause wear of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.


 

Invisalign can be used to correct a jaw that has an overbiteOverbite: What people commonly refer to as an “overbite” is also know as an “overjet”. It occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It’s typically caused by either genetics, bad oral habits, or over development of the bone that supports the teeth. This issue can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.


 

Invisalign can be used to correct a jaw that has an underbiteUnderbite: This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It’s usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw. It can be caused by overgrowth of the lower jaw. Or, both of these can contribute to an underbite. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. This issue can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
