Treatments Available With Invisalign®

Our Calgary, AB patients know that Invisalign has a treatment for their needs.

Invisalign® is quickly beginning to replace traditional braces as the first choice treatment for a large variety of different problems. Whether it’s crooked teeth or common bite issues, Invisalign has a treatment that can take care of it. And, the people behind Invisalign are always working on improving their technology. In fact, the recent addition of precision cuts has allowed Invisalign to treat even more different bite issues. Today, Drs. Edward and Georgie Rosenbaum are blogging from Calgary, AB to talk about some of the conditions that Invisalign currently excels at treating. We encourage you to read on to find out if Invisalign might be a good treatment for you.

A Comfortable Treatment for Your Needs

Invisalign is just as capable as traditional braces at restoring a large number of different problems associated with crooked teeth and abnormal jaw growth. Some of these conditions include:

  • Gapped Teeth: Gaps can form in between your teeth because of missing teeth or abnormal growth of your jawbone. These gaps can lead to problems such as periodontal disease and gum problems.
  • Overcrowded: Overcrowding occurs when there isn’t enough room in your jaw to comfortably hold all of your teeth. Overcrowded teeth can lead to severely crooked teeth, which in turn can lead to problems such as increased plaque accumulation, tooth decay, and gum disease.
  • Overbite: The name of the condition where your upper teeth overlap your lower teeth whenever you bite. This is generally caused by bad genes leading to the overgrowth of your jawbone. It can result in conditions such as gum irritation and jaw pain.
  • Underbite: The reverse of overbite, underbite occurs when your lower teeth overlap your upper teeth every time you bite. It is usually caused by overgrowth of the lower jaw or undergrowth of the upper jaw, and can lead to joint problems and increased tooth wear.
  • Open Bite: Caused by bad genes or excessive thumb sucking, open bite is the name of the condition where your upper teeth and lower teeth are unable to touch when biting. This condition can lead to painful chewing and speech impairment.
  • Crossbite: Occurs when the upper and lower jaw are misaligned, causing your upper teeth to bite on the inside of your lower teeth. This condition can lead to increased tooth wear, gum disease, and bone loss if left untreated.
