Are you wondering, “Can Invisalign fix my crooked teeth?” In many cases, the answer is yes. Invisalign has helped over eight million people worldwide, and it’s improving all the time. Now, Invisalign can treat patients of all ages and correct many malocclusions, a word for the teeth’ misalignment.
Here are some of the malocclusions that Invisalign can treat:
- Crooked Teeth
- Crowded Teeth
- Gap Teeth
- Open Bite
As you treat these conditions with Invisalign, you can get a beautiful, perfect smile. Even better, you can help avoid health concerns like tooth decay, which affects 9 in 10 Americans. Therefore, when you straighten your smile, you can enjoy better oral health, more confidence, and even self-esteem.
Why do so many people have crooked teeth? As we evolved, our modern diet of softer foods played a role. Over thousands of years, our jaws became smaller, crowding the space for adult teeth. Also, other factors like genetics, poor dental care, injuries, and nutrition care can cause misaligned teeth.
Is It Necessary To Treat Crooked Teeth?
You may be wondering if treatment is necessary? Or maybe, you’re wondering if you can put it off a bit longer? Well, the answer will depend on your unique smile.
If you only have a minor issue, then crooked teeth may not require treatment. After all, most people don’t have perfect smiles, and overbites affect the majority of people.
On the other hand, if your malocclusion affects your health or makes you feel uncomfortable, then Invisalign could help you. In some cases, it could change your life for the better.
Unfortunately, crooked teeth can cause a host of health issues:
- Difficulty chewing or speaking
- Tooth decay caused by wear
- Jaw pain
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Damage to self-esteem
If left untreated, these conditions can worsen as you age. Thus, you can experience tooth loss and resulting bone loss. Then, you may have a prematurely aged appearance. Worse, gum disease can lead to serious health issues like respiratory disease or coronary artery disease.
