Invisalign has proven effective in straightening crooked or skewed teeth or causing shifts leading to teeth being restored in their proper positions on the dentine. Invisalign consists of a set of perfectly clear braces that can be installed comfortably enabling effective treatment of protruding or disordered teeth. This advanced orthodontic procedure more often than not comes in handy for dealing with more complex dental issues including but not limited to underbite, overbite or malocclusion. Our experienced dentists in Singapore have the expertise and experience to straighten your teeth regardless of the nature of your dental imperfections. 

Invisalign is capable of efficiently treating the following orthodontic dental issues including gapped teeth, “underbite”, “overbite”, “crossbite”, “overcrowding”, and “open bite”.

1. Overbite

The problem occurs when teeth in the maxilla or upper jaw go over teeth in the mandible or lower jaw when you close your mouth or even when keeping your jaws slightly apart. Overbite can be hereditary or it could result from poor oral hygiene. It can also happen due to excessive development of the jawbones. Overbites could cause pain in the jaws and also result in gum issues. Our dental clinic in Singapore has seasoned orthodontists who’ve designed Invisalign trays for patients with overbite issues.

2. Gapped Teeth

Abnormal development of jawbone can create anomalous or wide spaces between teeth and spacing can cause adjacent teeth to move in order to fill in the gaps. Gaps or spaces between teeth can cause issues of the gum and periodontal disease. 

3. Underbite

The underbite orthodontic problem is in sharp contrast with the overbite issue. In the underbite condition, the teeth positioned on the lower jaw mask their counterparts embedded in the upper jaw. This deformity might prevent the molars or teeth in the front from functioning normally as well as cause jaw pains. 

4. Overcrowding

When space in your upper or lower jaw is insufficient for the entire row of teeth to set in normally, it could lead to overcrowding. With this condition, each and every tooth attempts to position itself normally within the limited space available in the jaw causing teeth to become skewed or crooked. In the long run, overcrowding could also result in tooth decay, plaque formation, and even gum disease.

5. Open Bite

Sometimes teeth of both the jaws may not align properly thereby preventing contact and ultimately not let you bite or chew food properly. The root of this problem can be traced to genetics or heredity and more often than not lead to speech issues or painful chewing.

6. Crossbite

Misalignment of both the maxilla and mandible can lead to teeth of the upper section to gnaw on insides or front of lower teeth causing the same to erode and also leading to gum disease.

The advantage of using Invisalign is that it works for most of the above orthodontic problems provided the issues are not too acute or severe. Our dentists are well-placed to develop personalized Invisalign trays from high-quality BPA-free plastics that will help in straightening teeth, thus helping them to function properly and also allowing you to smile confidently!
