Bite Alignment – Sachse, TX
Choose the Clear Choice with Invisalign
Did you know the alignment of your teeth creates more than just aesthetic concerns? The positioning of your teeth can also affect your oral health and functions. If they aren’t in alignment, you will have an increased risk of certain dental issues, and it can also cause a poor bite. If your upper and lower teeth don’t rest together in harmony, it not only affects your oral health but also your daily life because certain tasks can be difficult, like chewing. Braces can correct your bite, but no one wants to deal with their unsightly appearance. You can enjoy a less noticeable treatment with Invisalign in Sachse. The clear aligners are effective in correcting a variety of bite complications.
Why Do I Need to Fix My Bite?
An unbalanced bite can lead to aesthetic concerns, but that’s not the only issue. The uneven pressure on your teeth can cause jaw pain. It can also cause erosion of your enamel, increasing your risk of tooth sensitivity, chips, and fractures.
Unfortunately, significant bite complications can also limit your ability to perform simple oral functions needed for chewing and speaking. In some cases, it can even cause issues with swallowing or breathing. Traditionally, braces are used to correct bite abnormalities; however, there is another solution. Invisalign is the clear choice in orthodontics for teens and adults who need a less noticeable treatment.
How Can Invisalign Help Me?
Traditional braces rely on brackets and wires affixed to the teeth to pull them into position. Invisalign works differently because there aren’t any brackets or wires used to move your teeth. Instead, we take impressions of your mouth to create a series of clear aligners worn over your teeth. The aligners apply continual pressure to slowly move your teeth into position. It corrects gapped, rotated, and tilted teeth, but it also fixes serval bite issues, including:
If your upper teeth extend too far over your lower ones, your bottom teeth may bite into the roof of your mouth.
The lower teeth can rest over the upper teeth, creating an underbite.
If the back bite doesn’t fit together correctly, it can impact your jaw function. Over time, this may lead to a disorder of the temporomandibular joint.
The upper teeth can rest inside the lower teeth, creating a crossbite. This can cause excessive enamel erosion and even improper jaw growth.
When the upper and lower teeth don’t overlap, it can make it difficult to close the mouth or chew. Often, an open bite results from thumbsucking as a child.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
If you’re ready to get a beautiful, functional smile, Invisalign may be the solution for you. You’ll need an initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Sachse to evaluate your orthodontic needs. You’ll also need to commit to wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours per day until you’ve finished your treatment.
