Each year, more and more patients choose Invisalign over traditional metal braces, and there’s no shortage of reasons why. From comfort to convenience – and everything in between – Invisalign has a number of compelling benefits compared with metal braces. What’s more, patients who choose Invisalign don’t have to sacrifice the quality of treatment or their potential outcome, as Invisalign works just as well as metal braces do in the majority of cases. At Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics in Wyomissing, PA, we are committed to helping patients get the healthy, beautiful smile they deserve with the most exciting dental and orthodontic tools and technologies available today, including Invisalign. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at how Invisalign works to straighten crooked teeth, as well as which other common orthodontic issues it can help to improve.

What issues can Invisalign fix?

When most people think of Invisalign, the first thing that comes to mind is getting a straighter smile. You may be surprised to learn, however, that Invisalign can do much more than straighten crooked teeth. In fact, Invisalign can treat virtually any issue that traditional metal braces can, with a few exceptions. Some of the most common orthodontic concerns that can be addressed with Invisalign clear aligners include:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Twisted teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite

Are my teeth too crooked for Invisalign?

In many cases, patients with significant crowding or misalignment simply assume that metal braces are their only option. In reality, Invisalign clear aligners are capable of correcting most of the same problems that metal braces can correct.

Can Invisalign fix twisted teeth?

In most cases, Invisalign aligners can successfully rotate twisted or crooked teeth. Oftentimes, Invisalign is actually a more appropriate option for twisted teeth vs. traditional braces, as it can be extremely difficult to place a metal bracket onto a severely rotated tooth. However, because each patient’s dental anatomy is unique, it is impossible to say with certainty if Invisalign or metal braces would be more appropriate for tooth rotation without first performing an orthodontic evaluation. During your initial consultation for Invisalign in the Reading, PA area, one of our expert providers will carefully examine your teeth, discuss your concerns, explain all of your orthodontic treatment options at length, and help determine if clear aligners or metal braces may be the most appropriate choice for you.

Can kids get Invisalign?

Yes! Invisalign can be used in place of traditional metal braces in both tweens and teens. Clear aligners are a popular choice in these age groups, as they are discrete, comfortable, and removable. This means that tweens and teens are able to eat without restriction, play a musical instrument comfortably, and smile confidently, all of which would be more difficult with traditional braces.

Regardless of your age, Invisalign clear aligners may be the discreet, effective, life-changing solution you’ve been searching for.
