Invisalign-Are You A Good Candidate for Invisalign treatment By Dr.George Bardawil
Invisalign is an excellent invisible tool to deal with many orthodontic problems.
What Kind of Cases Are Suitable for Invisalign?
Many people do not even consider getting their teeth straightened with Invisalign, because they believe that the treatment is only suitable for minor orthodontic problems. However, this assumption is incorrect. Invisalign can treat many kinds of orthodontic issues including, underbites, tooth misalignment, jaw issues and overcrowded teeth. In order to get an idea of what kinds of results you can expect from Invisalign, you should do a simple Google search before and after pictures of previous patients, who have undergone the treatment. Perhaps you will be able to find a picture of someone with similar dental structure problem to you and has gotten good results from the Invisalign treatment. For example, if you have a serious bite problem, you can receive an Invisalign treatment using elastic. Below are more examples of the kinds of dental problems that Invisalign can treat.
This happens when there is insufficient space for all the teeth in the jaw bone. If this remains untreated, the overcrowding could get even worse. Also, overcrowding can cause various oral and dental health problems, such as gum disease, tooth decay, and a build up of plague.
Spaced teeth occur when the jaw bone continues to grow abnormally. It can also result when there are missing teeth, thereby causing the other teeth to shift because there is increased space for them. Spaced teeth are not just a physical problem. But, they can also cause gum problems because they are not protected by teeth, as well as increased risk of periodontal diseases.
This is when the upper and lower jaws are not aligned, and the lower tooth protrudes beyond the front teeth. It can be caused due to three reasons, the undergrowth of the upper jaw, the overgrowth of the lower jaw, or a combination of the two. This can prevent the teeth from functioning properly, which results in tooth wear.
This condition is the opposite of the underbite. Here the upper jaw protrudes beyond the lower jaw. To dentists, this condition is called 'Overjet.'
This is when the upper and lower jaws are not aligned properly. It is evident when one or more of the upper teeth bite down, onto the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause the teeth to chip; it can result in abnormal tooth wear, and periodontal problems such as gum disease and jawbone loss.
If your particular condition is not listed here, you should speak directly to your dentist in order to find out, if you qualify for this treatment. Not all dentists and orthodontists are qualified to treat patients using Invisalign. And, it is important to recognize that not all the providers will have the same amount of experience with this treatment. Once you have done some research and find out, which of the providers in your area are the best, you have to make a consultation appointment with them.
