How to correct an overbite with Invisalign orthodontics
- Posted on: Nov 15 2020
Patients of the Golden, Colorado area who struggle with an overbite might feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smile. They may avoid talking to a dentist about their dislike for the alignment of their smile for fear of being told traditional metal braces are required to achieve the desired results. Luckily, patients no longer have to choose metal appliances to improve their smile, and now have a variety of options available to them—including Invisalign orthodontics.
What is Invisalign?
Dr. Nancy Gill of Golden Dental Solutions is excited to offer patients solutions for their smiles that eliminate the need for traditional braces. Invisalign is a method of realigning the teeth in the upper or lower dental arch with clear plastic aligner trays. Invisalign is a tried-and-true alternative to conventional orthodontia, allowing patients to improve their smile while ensuring discreet treatment. The trays are made of clear, medical-grade plastic and gently reposition teeth into proper alignment as needed. Each patient receives a series of trays that are worn day and night for two weeks at a time as they progress through treatment. Invisalign can correct overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
Who is a candidate?
Invisalign is best for patients with mild to moderate misalignment or malocclusion of the smile. The most appropriate way to determine candidacy is with an initial evaluation and appointment with Dr. Nancy Gill. Her team is dedicated to ensuring patients are screened to decide if Invisalign is right for them.
How long does it take to improve the smile with Invisalign?
Unlike traditional orthodontics that require months, sometimes years, of treatment, most patients who use Invisalign can improve their smile in less than 12 months with proper compliance.
