An incorrect bite can be caused by crowded teeth, supernumerary or extra teeth, missing teeth or jaws that are not aligned correctly. These conditions mostly inherited, although can be caused by accidents, early or late losses of baby teeth, or prolonged habits of thumb or dummy sucking.
Braces and invisible aligners, the greatest advancements in orthodontics in the last 50 years, enables teeth to be straightened using custom manufactured, clear appliances. These are almost invisible which mean patients can undergo orthodontic treatment in a manner that is almost un-dectable, and will not impose on everyday lifestyle in any major way.
The benefits of Invisalign over traditional orthodontics with braces includes:
- No metal brackets or wires with invisible aligners.
- Reduced mouth irritation and ulcers associated with traditional braces.
- Limit the amount of time spent in the dental chair.
- Aligners are easily removable and will not impact on everyday lifestyle.
