What Problems Can Invisalign Correct?

Invisalign, the clear, removable teeth straightening device can correct a wide range of dental problems. In the recent past, teeth could only be fixed with unsightly, and sometimes painful, braces that needed to worn for years at a time. Teenagers lamented. Today, Invisalign can correct dental problems without the same amount of pain and discomfort – social or otherwise.

Fix An Overbite

This type of dental issue is known in the profession as an ‘overjet’. The cause of this problem can be from a range of sources. It can be caused by bad habits, genetics or bone overdevelopment. No matter what the cause, Invisalign can correct the problem and straighten the teeth so the bite sits where it should.

Fix an Underbite

An underbite can have serious effects on the teeth. Because the teeth don’t function as they should, an underbite can cause jaw and joint problems along with damaging wear on the teeth. The problem is most commonly caused by an overgrowth or undergrowth in the jaw, but missing upper teeth can also be the root cause.

Fix Gapped Teeth

In some individuals, the jaw keeps growing while the teeth stop. The result is gapped teeth. The teeth are further separated from one another than on most people, and it can be a source of personal anxiety and oral problems. Invisalign can fix this problem, heighten your confidence and keep your oral hygiene at its best.

Fix an Open Bite

The open bite is often seen in people who sucked their thumbs excessively. It can also be caused by an abnormal jaw structure. In this issue, the front teeth do not meet when the jaw is closed, creating an open space even when the back teeth are shut. In the long-term, this can create chewing problems, speech impairment and even TMJ.

Another Correction

Children and teens are susceptible to social stigmas, and braces can be a defining social stigma in school, unfortunately. Invisalign devices help to prevent children and teens from experiencing the embarrassment and social pain that can sometimes result from traditional braces. They need not feel unable to smile or laugh when it feels natural.

If you’re suffering from any one of these problems, Invisalign braces may be right for you. Before you decide, speak with your dentist to determine the best course of action. They’d be happy to go over your options with you and find a solution.

Our governing College, Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) has advised dentists that they strongly recommend that all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended immediately. Public safety is our number one concern. We need to put our patients’ interests and the safety of the community, first. Ontario has declared a state of emergency, and the Canadian government is strongly urging all Canadians to practice social distancing.

Dental hygiene services in a time of a "pandemic" are not considered emergency or essential services. Our College has advised that we postpone all appointments for Hygiene scaling/cleanings until further notice. We may however, be open for EMERGENCIES. We ask that you call one of our offices to schedule this, and to be pre-screened.

What is the definition of an essential service?

In dentistry, a “true emergency situation” includes oral-facial trauma, significant infection, prolonged bleeding or pain which cannot be managed by over-the-counter medications.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we are here for you and want to help. Please call our offices to speak with one of our representatives who will be able to screen and advise you accordingly.  CONSULTATIONS OVER THE PHONE will be available with the Doctor, if needed.

This strong recommendation to suspend non-essential services, is being followed in interest of the public, our patients and our Team. We all need to act in a socially responsible manner. The College will revisit this recommendation in the first week of April. We will continue to keep you up to date.

Stay safe, and healthy.
