Is Invisalign Right for You?
Ultimately, you’ll need to visit Dr. Parsi’s San Antonio dental office for an assessment, but here are a few issues they can help treat:
- Crowded/crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
What are Malocclusions?
Your occlusion is how your teeth fit together. Overbites, underbites, and crossbites are different types of non-ideal occlusions, or malocclusions. In an ideal occlusion, your top and bottom teeth fit together perfectly. Invisalign can help move your teeth and create a balanced, ideal occlusion. An overbite is defined as the upper teeth coming forward and closing in front of the bottom teeth. An underbite is defined as the lower teeth closing in front of the upper teeth. And a crossbite is defined as a lateral misalignment of the teeth. For example, if your lower back teeth are closer to your cheek than your upper teeth when you close.
Malocclusions can contribute to a number of problems, many become more serious and costly over time. When your bite is improper, it can contribute to TMJ dysfunction, pain, chipping of teeth, and abnormal wearing of the teeth. Orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign can fix not only crooked teeth that make you uncomfortable with your smile, but malocclusions as well, giving you a longer lasting, healthier bite.
Invisalign – A Clear Solution
Dr. Parsi was has personally witnessed his Invisalign patients experiencing increased confidence and success after treatment. Invisalign clear braces are FDA-approved and is the “invisible” solution to straighten teeth without conventional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners to gently move teeth into their ideal position.
Living With Invisalign Clear Braces
Since you can remove your Invisalign aligners before eating and drinking, there are no food restrictions or problems with flossing or brushing. Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable, clear acrylic, so they do not cause mouth abrasions common with the metal and wires of conventional braces. Also, since “adjustments” only consist of swapping out retainers and making minor adjustments, you’ll spend less time at Dr. Parsi’s San Antonio office and more time enjoying life.
