Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign aligners can be used to treat a variety of dental problems from crooked teeth to overbites. Here are some of the most common reasons people choose Invisalign.

Overcrowded Teeth

When the jaw is too small to accommodate all the teeth in your mouth, existing teeth and incoming teeth come become crooked, twisted, and erupt in the wrong position. Not fixing this problem leads to increase risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth functionality.

Gaps Between Teeth

Several things can cause wide spaces between teeth, and even small gaps can negatively impact nearby teeth. It can allow teeth to move out of alignment or even turn in the socket without neighboring support. Ultimately this can lead to gum disease if not addressed.

Bite Issues

Often the result of jaw misalignment, bite issues can affect one’s ability to bite and chew food, cause seemingly unexplained jaw pain, and an array of other problems.


This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are not properly aligned and one or more teeth in the upper jaw close inside the lower jaw’s teeth.


Sometimes referred to as an “overjet”, an overbite exists when the teeth in the upper jaw extend out over the teeth in the lower jaw. This condition can be genetic or it can be caused by habits such like thumbsucking. Eventually this condition can lead to gum disease or even bone loss.


The opposite of an overbite, an underbite occurs when the teeth in the lower jaw extend out beyond the teeth of the upper jaw. Underbites can lead to uneven tooth wear, negatively affecting the molars or front teeth. Jaw pain and jaw disfunction may also result.

How to Wear and Use Invisalign

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are taken out to eat, brush, and floss as needed. This option helps keep your natural teeth healthier, and doesn’t impose any dietary restrictions.

The aligners should be worn roughly 22 hours a day, including at night. Every two weeks your aligners will be replaced with a new set that will move your teeth a bit more in order to achieve the smile you want.
