Different conditions that can be solved with Invisalign
Invisalign in NY can treat different cases starting from slightly crooked teeth to protruding teeth or difficult dental problems that involve underbite, overbite or malocclusion. It can be used if your teeth are gapped widely, overly crowded or something which is in between; invisalign is an affordable option to strengthen your teeth.
The following are some of the common conditions that can be solved by Invisalign:
Gapped teeth are gaps between your teeth can take place when there is abnormality in the jawbone. Missing teeth may lead to shifting of surrounding teeth into this extra space and this creates a gap within your teeth. Spacing issues or gaps in the teeth can cause gum problems because there is no protection from teeth while periodontal pockets may lead to periodontal diseases.
Overbite takes place if upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. This is caused normally by bad oral habits, overdevelopment of a bone which supports teeth or genetics. Overbite leads to problems of the gum and irritation and wear on lower teeth which may lead to painful jaw with joint problems.
Underbite takes place if lower teeth are protruding over the front teeth. This happens because of undergrowth of the upper jaw or because of overgrowth of the lower jaw, or the two could happen at the same time. It may also be a result of missing upper teeth. This problem may prevent normal function of molars and front teeth which may lead to eventual tooth wear or cause painful jaw and joint problems.
Open bite happens if teeth fail to make contact with other teeth. This happens because of genetic abnormal jaw structure or bad habits during young age such as too much thumb sucking. Open bites cause painful or poor chewing and even impair speech. It may cause worse issues such as thermomandibular joint disorder.
Overly crowded teeth is when there is not enough room in the jaw for all teeth to fit in a normal way. If it is not treated, crowded teeth may get worse as time passes and result in crooked teeth. Such overcrowding can lead to accumulation of plaque, decaying teeth and gum diseases.
Cross bite takes place when both the lower and upper jaws are misaligned. One or even more upper teeth may bite inside the lower teeth. It can lead to wearing of teeth, bone loss and gum disease.
