If you have been told that you are not a great candidate for Invisalign, it may because your treatment is intensive. But if your teeth looks similar to those below, chances are, Invisalign would work great for you!
Can I Get Invisalign® If I Have An Overbite?
If your overbite is too large, a doctor may tell you that you have something called a “deep bite.” This can cause your teeth to wear down, which can result in cavities, gum disease, and worn tooth enamel. It also can cause jaw pain. But the good news is, Invisalign can treat overbites and deep bites!
Can I Get Invisalign® If I Have A Crossbite?
A crossbite is when you close your mouth and some of your upper teeth are sitting inside your lower teeth. Normally they should be sitting on the outside.
Having a crossbite can result in tooth decay and chipping. It can also cause headaches and muscle tension. Lastly, it can make your gums start to recede or make little notches above your gum line. This can lead to painful gum problems, or in severe cases, bone loss. Invisalign can be used to treat crossbites.
Can I Get Invisalign® If I Have Gap Teeth?
Gap teeth can also be referred to as a spacing issue. This is when you have extra space between two or more of your teeth.
Having gap teeth can create pockets between your teeth where food can get stuck, eventually causing digestive issues. It can also make your gums tender and sore, and in severe cases, it can lead to gum disease. Invisalign can fix gap teeth or any spacing issue.
