Did you know that Invisalign/clear aligner therapy has many more amazing benefits then to just straighten out your smile? The primary reason I recommend this treatment is to balance out your bite. Your bite is determined by how your teeth come together.
The ideal arrangement, is when all the teeth exert equal forces upon each other. When your teeth aren’t in the correct arrangement, either by crowding or spaces, forces become unbalanced. This imbalance causes the following issues:
- Gum recession
- Chipped teeth
- TMJ problems
- Sensitive teeth
- Bone loss
During your initial comprehensive exam, we use a 3D scanner to show you exactly where the imbalances are. I can then determine if Invisalign will benefit your case or if other options may help instead.
