Problems We Can Correct with Invisalign Treatment

It’s easy to see why Invisalign clear braces are popular with adult patients who want a straighter smile but don’t want or need metal braces. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign in San Jose, CA is convenient and comfortable, and the clear aligners are barely noticeable when they’re on your teeth. 

But don’t let Invisalign’s convenience and ease of use fool you. While many adults choose clear aligners for cosmetic reasons, Invisalign is a powerful orthodontic treatment that corrects many of the same issues that bracket and wire braces do.

Tooth Misalignments Invisalign Corrects

Invisalign clear aligners correct all sorts of tooth misalignments:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overlapped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Rotated teeth

Treatment times to fix these issues vary by patient, but average treatment times are about 12 to 15 months.

Invisalign Addresses Bite Problems

When you bite down, and your teeth don’t meet evenly, we call it a bite problem, or malocclusion. Invisalign clear braces in San Jose, CA addresses several malocclusions:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

An uneven dental bite places extra force on certain teeth and can lead to broken and fractured teeth, teeth grinding, and jaw pain.

Your First Step to a Straighter Smile

Getting started with Invisalign couldn't be easier. The first step is to schedule an orthodontic evaluation to determine the extent of your problem and confirm that Invisalign is the right step for you.

At this time, our San Jose Invisalign dentists will explain the oral health benefits of a straighter smile and answer all of your questions thoroughly and patiently. We want you to feel informed and confident about your decision, so we’ll take all the time you need.
