If you’re having trouble with your bite, rest assured there are dental solutions that can help. One of those is Invisalign. Invisalign can correct a number of bite issues, including crossbites, underbites, overbites, and open bites, to improve the quality of your smile. Bite problems, also known as malocclusion, can impact your ability to chew, your speech, and your smile’s overall appearance. An evaluation by Dr. Sam Halabo, your Invisalign dentist in Chula Vista, California, can determine if Invisalign can work for you.
Invisalign is known for its simplicity, convenience, and speed in correcting orthodontic issues like malocclusion. Invisalign replaces the brackets and wires of traditional braces with removable invisible aligners to straighten crooked teeth. Dr. Halabo will take impressions of your teeth to have aligners customized for your use. When worn, the aligners slowly realign crooked teeth to a straighter, healthier position.
Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating and oral hygiene so you can enjoy your meals and keep your teeth fresh and clean throughout your treatment. However, the aligners must be replaced immediately afterward to avoid disrupting your treatment. The aligners should be worn 20–22 hours daily for optimal results. You’ll rotate to a new set of aligners every two weeks to continue straightening your teeth until your treatment is complete.
Invisalign has been proven highly successful in correcting mild to moderate malocclusion problems like:
