Dental Conditions Invisalign can treat
Most orthodontic cases can be treated using Invisalign's modern technology and with Dr. Yao's expertise. From mild cases of misaligned teeth, which can take just a few short months to treat, to complex cases involving serious bite issues, Invisalign effectively corrects a wide variety of dental issues.
SPACED TEETH (GAPS)
Spaced teeth can occur as a result of the jaw bone continuing to grow. If teeth are missing surrounding teeth can shift due to the extra space. Spacing issues between teeth can lead to gum problems and increased risk of gum disease.
OVERLY CROWDED TEETH
This occurs when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse over time. This crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.
An overbite is a condition where the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth. It's typically caused by genetics, bad oral habits, or overdevelopment of the bone that supports the teeth. This can lead to gum disease and chipped or fractured front teeth.
This occurs when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and the sides of the mouth. This can lead to abnormal tooth wear and chipping, and periodontal problems including gum disease and bone loss.
This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth. It's usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both. It can also be caused by missing upper teeth. T his can prevent the normal function of front teeth or molars, which can lead to tooth wear. It can also cause painful jaw and joint problems.
