Invisalign has helped hundreds of thousands of people with many different dental or orthodontic issues. Take a look at some specific issues, how they were fixed, and how long the treatment lasted.
- Cross bite
- Deep bite
This 29-year-old female patient had always felt unhappy with her teeth. Her upper front teeth were overlapping and her lower front teeth were crowded, which made cleaning difficult and could potentially lead to problems with dental decay and gum disease. She had a good and stable bite, only treatment for the front teeth was therefore required. Her Invisalign treatment lasted just over 9 months.
In her late thirties, the space between this 49-year-old female patient’s front teeth had widened so much that a third front tooth could have fitted within the space. She previously tried metal braces which didn’t fit into her lifestyle and had these removed. Within just a few months, she could really see the difference. She was treated with Invisalign over the course of 17 months.
This male patient felt very self conscious of a prominent canine on the lower set of teeth, as it protruded outward and caused cross bite problems with his upper tooth when eating. He wanted to improve the overall general aesthetics of his smile, but also to stop his lip getting caught on the neighbouring tooth and to improve issues with chewing. His Invisalign treatment lasted approximately 12 months.
This 15-year-old female patient had a deep bite (where the upper front teeth cover the lower teeth too much), her upper left lateral tooth stuck out and her lower teeth were crowded. As this made it difficult for her to clean her teeth properly, her dental provider advised her that these issues may lead to gum disease. She was successfully treated with Invisalign in approximately 10 months.
