Imperfections within the smile can cause Abington, PA, area patients to feel incredibly embarrassed at how they look when socializing with others. It not only can affect their relationships with themselves and others, but it can also have an impact on their career and business connections. While metal bracket-and-wire braces are an effective solution for children and teenagers, they are not always the most desirable option for adults. Thanks to improvements in dentistry and orthodontics, patients visiting our team at McDowell Dental Group will find themselves interested in learning more about less noticeable ways of improving their smiles, such as Invisalign® orthodontics.
How Invisalign® orthodontics works
Patients with gaps between the teeth will often work with Drs. Gary and Ashley McDowell to discuss possible options for improving the smile. Covering these imperfections with composite resin bonding or porcelain veneers is sufficient for some. For others, several areas of the smile that needs improvement, including the alignment of the bite, require something more. Invisalign® eliminates the need for metal braces and utilizes customized clear aligner trays worn over the dental arch to reposition the teeth into better positioning within the smile.
Will Invisalign® eliminate gaps between teeth?
When the teeth are misaligned, it may result in issues such as spaces between them. In addition, this can result in poor bite alignment, causing crossbites, underbites, or overbites between both the upper and lower dental arches. To fix this, Invisalign® will reposition the teeth in the arch and ensure they are properly aligned in terms of bite to provide the best final results. Patients with poor bite alignment may notice excess wear and tear on their natural teeth, which can be eliminated by fixing the alignment and improving the smile’s overall appearance simultaneously.
