In recent years, orthodontic technology advancements have revolutionized how we approach dental misalignments. One such innovation is Invisalign, a clear aligner system that has gained popularity for its discreet and effective correction of various dental issues.
Dr. Cheng Zhu and the team at Freedom Dental in Fairfield, California, have seen excellent results using Invisalign for patients. You may be wondering if Invisalign can fix your open bite. The great news is that Invisalign can correct your open bite. Let’s look at how Invisalign addresses open bites and the unique advantages you can expect from Invisalign compared to traditional metal braces.
An open bite is a visible dental issue that appears as a gap between the upper and lower front teeth when the jaws are closed. This misalignment can result in issues including trouble with speech and chewing, and it could even contribute to the development of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. For many years, traditional treatment for open bites involved braces, headgear, or other fixed appliances. However, modern treatments like Invisalign have emerged as a more comfortable and cosmetically pleasing alternative.
Invisalign works via the use of a series of custom-crafted, clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth. These aligners are designed to exert gentle pressure on specific areas of the teeth, gradually guiding them into the desired position. Your Invisalign treatment plan will be carefully crafted with the help of three-dimensional imaging technology. This allows for a highly precise and personalized approach to each patient’s orthodontic needs.
