Invisalign® is visibly appealing. It has clear appliances that are nearly undetectable by anyone besides the wearer. But did you know that Invisalign does more than just straighten your teeth?
Many people suffer from overcrowded and over-spaced teeth. And though it’s thought to and does occur in children, it more often appears in grown adults. 38 percent of adults suffer from crowding and 21 percent suffer from spacing issues. All these maladjusted teeth can often cause malocclusion, or a “poor bite”. This irregular contact between the upper and lower teeth can cause tooth and jaw pain, especially in adults. While children and teens are likely to go through traditional orthodontics like metal braces to correct these problems, adults are less likely to go through such a procedure. Not only do braces often require more time in adults to take effect, but they can also be bulky and visually unappealing. Invisalign offers an innovative dental solution for adults with malocclusion cause by misaligned teeth.
