What Can Invisalign Fix?

Conditions that QuickSmiles Treats

When Invisalign was first invented back in the late 1990s, it was only able to correct minor orthodontic issues. But through rigorous innovation and incredible technology, QuickSmiles can now use the Invisalign method to fix more than 95% of all cases.

From straightening teeth and correcting bites, you’ll be amazed at all of the different things Invisalign is able to repair on your journey to a beautiful smile.

Take a look at this list below and find out all the conditions Invisalign can fix!

Overbite

What is an Overbite?

As seen in the image above, an overbite is when the top front teeth extend over the bottom front teeth causing a gap between them. Among the most common orthodontic cases, the majority of people looking for smile corrections have at least a minor overbite.

As time progresses, an overbite that isn’t fixed can lead to jaw pain, wearing down of your teeth, and other issues.

Invisalign for Overbite

With new treatment options, Invisalign can be used to fix overbites as part of the process. A professional QuickSmiles orthodontist will help you with a personalized treatment when using Invisalign for your overbite.


Underbite

What is an Underbite?

Showing up as the opposite of an overbite, an underbite is when your bottom teeth are in front of your top teeth whenever your mouth is closed. This is mainly caused by a lower jaw that is sitting too far forward.

Having an underbite can lead to numerous troubles with everything from chewing to speaking properly. It also has the potential to wear down multiple points of your teeth much more quickly than normal.

Invisalign for Underbite

In most cases, Invisalign can be used to correct an underbite. Depending on the severity of your underbite, there may be additional steps necessary to complete the process. A QuickSmiles orthodontist will be able to discuss Invisalign treatment options that fit your exact needs.


Gap Teeth

What are Gap Teeth?

Spacing issues happen when teeth end up with a gap in between them. This typically occurs when there is too much room as adult teeth begin to come in.

People with gap teeth are more prone to gum disease due to the extra space where food can get stuck between them.

Invisalign for Gap Teeth

Fixing gaps in between teeth is a specialty of Invisalign. It can solve these problems through basic treatment and is one of the quickest corrections available. One of our top-rated QuickSmiles orthodontists will gladly discuss the benefits of using Invisalign for gap teeth.


Crossbite

What is a Crossbite?

A crossbite is essentially a combination of an overbite and an underbite. It occurs when your top and bottom jaws don’t line up, causing some of your front teeth to go in front of and behind one another.

When you have a crossbite, your teeth are much more likely to wear down quickly or even chip when chewing or talking. It also has the potential to cause gum disease as your gums will begin to recede and become misaligned.

Invisalign for Crossbite

Over the years, developments have made it possible to use Invisalign for crossbite treatments. Some cases may require additional steps before and during the process, but a QuickSmiles orthodontist will walk you through everything during your Invisalign treatment.


Open Bite

What is an Open Bite?

Whenever the front top and bottom teeth don’t touch and leave a space in between them, it is called an open bite. While the front teeth are less likely to wear down, this type of bite can lead to issues with molars and additional problems.

People with an overbite may find it difficult to eat basic things like apples and other foods that require the use of front teeth to bite.

Fixing an open bite is yet another condition Invisalign is able to treat. Through a knowledgeable QuickSmiles orthodontists, you can learn how using Invisalign for an open bite is the best option.


Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Syndrome

What is TMJ?

Your temporomandibular (tem-puh-roe-man-DIB-u-lur) joint (TMJ) is one of the main pieces connecting your lower jawbone to your skull. While there are multiple ways someone can get a TMJ disorder, some of the most common include injury, arthritis, or even genetics.

This disorder can lead to jaw pain that makes it difficult to chew as well as having difficulty opening and closing your mouth.

Invisalign for TMJ

Though there are multiple types of treatment available for this condition, it has been proven that using Invisalign for TMJ can relieve the pain and prevent future cases. Also, through Invisalign for mandibular advancement, additional options are available to fix class II malocclusions in teens as they help with conditions like sleep apnea.

A QuickSmiles orthodontist can review your situation and let you know if Invisalign can fix your TMJ.

Crowding

What is Crowding?

Crowded teeth occur when there isn’t room in a person’s jaw for teeth to fit correctly, causing the teeth to overlap. As teeth are pushed either in front of or behind each other, they may also become twisted and crooked.

As crowding causes teeth to be facing in multiple directions, it can become difficult to keep them clean when brushing and flossing. This can then lead to plaque buildup that eventually turns into cavities.

Invisalign for Crowding

One of the best ways to fix crowded teeth is with Invisalign clear aligners. Your QuickSmiles orthodontist will show you exactly how using Invisalign for crowding can give you the smile you’ve always wanted.


Mix of Baby and Permanent Teeth

What Causes a Mix of Baby and Permanent Teeth?

Everyone loses teeth at a different age and a different rate. But when permanent teeth begin to come in and there are still baby teeth in the way, it can quickly lead to misalignments and other conditions.

Children who have baby teeth blocking permanent teeth could develop issues that may be harder to fix further down the road.

Invisalign for Baby and Permanent Teeth

While Invisalign was once only a possibility for adults, the development of Invisalign® First clear aligners has made it possible to treat individuals as young as 6 years old for symptoms like gaps, crooked teeth, and bite issues. The use of Invisalign for a combination of baby and permanent teeth has the ability to prevent current problems from getting worse, straighten teeth, and make future treatments much shorter and simpler.

A QuickSmiles orthodontist will be able to see what options are available for your child when it comes to Invisalign treatments.


Minorly Crooked Teeth

What are Considered Minorly Crooked Teeth?

Sometimes people don’t require a full-fledged treatment to correct bites, overlapping teeth, or significant gaps. You may simply have a minor condition that you want fixed. Common issues that are minimal may include basic cases where only a few teeth are crooked or misaligned.

Invisalign for Minorly Crooked Teeth

When it comes to generally straighter teeth, the Invisalign® Swift solutions at QuickSmiles are the best option. With the ability to cut treatment time in half, using Invisalign for minorly crooked teeth is a great way to get a smile you will truly love. Our experienced QuickSmiles orthodontists will be able to review your case and let you know if Invisalign® Swift is right for you.


Can I Use Invisalign if I Have Cavities or Crowns?

It is highly recommended that your teeth be in their best shape possible before starting your Invisalign treatment. You will want to have any cavities filled prior to beginning your smile journey for the health of your teeth and the most successful results possible.

If you get cavities filled or crowns put in after your treatment has already begun, it is possible that your clear aligners will no longer fit properly and will need to be replaced. Make sure that you visit your dentist before starting your Invisalign treatment to get them cleaned and any potential issues resolved.

As part of your first visit to QuickSmiles, one of our orthodontists will do a check to ensure there aren’t any potential problems that would inhibit your Invisalign smile journey.


What Can Invisalign Not Fix?

There are very few situations where Invisalign won’t be an option for orthodontic needs. Thanks to recent technological advancements, more than 95% of cases are able to use Invisalign for their smile correction.

The top-rated services offered by QuickSmiles make Invisalign the ultimate solution for fixing crooked teeth, overbites, underbites, and more. You can get the smile you’ve always wanted with the lowest Invisalign prices in the nation!
