Everyone knows what traditional braces look like, but what if you could straighten your teeth without anyone knowing? If you need your teeth straightened, but you don’t want to broadcast it to the world, you may want to consider Invisalign.® Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made aligners whose trays are made of comfortable, almost invisible plastic. These aligners will gently move your teeth into place, according to the movements that your orthodontist chooses for you. Your only job is to change out your aligners every two weeks until your treatment is over. If you are interested in clear braces, you should contact an orthodontist who specializes in Invisalign® in Vancouver, BC.
If you have noticed gaps between your teeth, your jawbone may be continuing to grow past the normal amount of time. Missing teeth can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift due to the additional space, resulting in gaps. Gaps not only eat away at your confidence, but they can also pose a health risk as well. Patients who have numerous gaps may be at increased risk for periodontal diseases.
2. Overbites and Underbites
Overbites occur when your upper teeth bite over your lower teeth, and underbites occur when the opposite happens. These issues usually have a genetic basis, but similar to gaps, they can also be caused by missing teeth. Since overbites and underbites prevent your molars from functioning properly, painful jaw and joint issues are often experienced by patients who suffer from these conditions.
3. Overcrowded Teeth
As the name implies, overcrowding stems from a lack of room within your jaw. Over time, this problem can worsen and result in noticeably crooked teeth. Overcrowding can also increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
