What Can Invisalign Correct?

Woman,Wearing,Orthodontic,Silicone,Trainer.,Invisible,Braces,Aligner.,Mobile,OrthodonticWe love helping people achieve their greatest smiles — and that sometimes includes using Invisalign® to address orthodontic concerns. These clear aligners are an alternative to braces that can straighten your teeth while enhancing your overall bite.

Bite refers to how your teeth align and plays a significant role in your oral health. A proper bite will have the front teeth positioned slightly before the lower teeth, and the molars should fit comfortably into the grooves of one another.

Misaligned bites are called malocclusions in orthodontics and dentistry. Invisalign can address mild to moderate misalignments, giving you a healthier bite and a straighter smile!

Types of Malocclusions Invisalign Can Correct


An underbite is an orthodontic condition that occurs when the bottom teeth are in front of the upper teeth, which can weaken the teeth and cause speech difficulties. Invisalign can help move the lower teeth to their desired position behind the front teeth. In severe cases, an orthodontist may treat an underbite with a combination of Invisalign and traditional braces.

Crowded Teeth

A jaw with insufficient space to accommodate existing teeth can cause them to overlap and twist, a condition known as crowded teeth. Crowded teeth cause food to get stuck between them more easily, allowing plaque and tartar to build up. These problems can eventually lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Depending on its complexity and severity, Invisalign can treat some types of crowding.


Gaps between teeth allow food to get caught between the teeth and gums, leading to pain and gum disease. Invisalign can help close gaps and create a healthier mouth. The primary factor determining this treatment’s effectiveness is the size of the gaps.


While the upper teeth should be in front of the lower teeth, an overbite occurs when the upper teeth are too far out in front. This condition can increase the difficulty of biting and chewing certain types of food. Invisalign can move the upper and lower teeth to create a better alignment when patients close their mouths.


A crossbite occurs when some, but not all, upper teeth are inside their corresponding lower teeth. This condition can result in chipped teeth and receding gums. Orthodontists may use Invisalign to correct certain cases of crossbites.
