A poorly aligned bite can cause years of damage and discomfort if left untreated. No matter the type of bite, if it does not align correctly, your teeth, gums, and jaw can reap the consequences, some of which can include:
Invisalign trays are known for fixing a myriad of dental problems, one of which is bite alignment. Because they are created using SmartTrack material, which provides a gentler, more consistent force when it comes to tooth movement, you can experience a more comfortable method of treatment that requires no harsh tightening of wires or irritation of the soft oral tissues in your mouth.
Invisalign can take care of the following bite alignment issues:
To determine if Invisalign is right for you, your cosmetic dentist in Round Rock will first need to perform a thorough evaluation of your smile. This will include a full exam, complete with digital X-rays and digital impression system to capture images of your smile. Once you are given the green light for treatment, your impressions will be sent to a lab where your aligners will be created.
When choosing Invisalign to repair your misaligned bite, it will be imperative that you wear your trays for at least 20-22 hours each day. After 1-2 weeks of wear, depending on your case and recommendation by our team, you will swap out your current set of trays for the next set in the series. This will keep your teeth moving and realigning so that they will conform to the new mold and put you one step closer to a better, more functional bite.
Once you are finished with treatment, you will be expected to wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting back into their original position.
