Invisalign Castle Hill: The Orthodontic Problems That Can Be Treated

Invisalign is simply a removable mouthpiece that can fix crooked teeth by slowly aligning your mouth and teeth to create a beautiful, straight smile. The unique aspect about it, that it is a clear apparatus – almost invisible. This presents a comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and effective way of getting a straight, healthy mouth.

Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment

A selection of common orthodontic problems (recorded by the New Zealand Association of Orthodontists) can be treated using invisalign Castle Hill:

Anterior Crossbite

An anterior crossbite occurs when the upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth. Or alternatively, the upper teeth fit outside your lower teeth, similar to a lid covering a box. In case such a situation is not corrected, receding gums may develop along the lower teeth. Moreover, the top teeth, which are much bigger and stronger may end up pushing your lower teeth forwards.

Fortunately, this disproportionate placement of teeth can be corrected using invisalign. Castle hill has a selection of competent orthodontists capable of utilizing this method of teeth correction.

Posterior Crossbite

A posterior crossbite occurs when the upper jaw happens to be too narrow; hence the lower jaw tends to swing to one side, thus allowing meshing of the upper and lower teeth. It is also possible to have a crossbite without swinging of the jaw to one side. A research titled “Prevalence Of Malocclusion Traits in an Australian Adult Population” (published in the Australian Orthodontic Journal), reveals that incidences of posterior crossbites tend to be more prevalent in older persons. Application of invisalign in this case would also help in realigning both jaws and teeth to give a straight, beautiful mouth.

Crowding Of Teeth

Although, quite a common occurrence, crowded teeth is definitely an unattractive appearance. Furthermore, it also presents a problem in proper tooth hygiene (tough to clean in between crowded teeth), as well as creating problems with biting and chewing. Crowding of teeth is more common with older persons, especially posterior crowding (based on the research titled “Prevalence of Malocclusion Traits in an Australian Adult Population”). Invisalign treatment would help in realigning the crowded teeth and produce a more even teeth placement. This eventually gives a good looking and easy to clean dental arrangement.

Overjet And Overbite

Although relatively similar, an overjet should not be confused with an overbite. An overjet refers to the extent of forward placement of the teeth. This may be quite unsightly since your lips may not even meet. Furthermore, such a forward teeth placement poses higher risk of injury on the front teeth. Hence, you would rather avoid playing contact sport before correction of this situation.

An overbite simply refers to an overlap of bottom and top teeth. Since the overlap leads to wear and tear in your front teeth, your gum tissue would also get damaged in the process. Actually, both overjet and overbite may occur simultanuosly. Such a condition would require careful evaluation by an orthodontist before application of invisalign orthodontic treatment.

Depending on the particular dental issue, your orthodontist would prescribe the appropriate method of treatment, which may involve a combination of different treatment plans, apart from invisalign.
