How Can Invisalign Help®?

Widely Spaced Teeth: An occurrence when the jaw bone continues to grow and when teeth are missing, teeth will shift due to extra space. These spacing issues can cause some periodontal diseases.Overly crowded teeth: When there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally, overly crowded teeth can cause dental decay, an increase in chances of gum disease, and can prevent the normal function of teeth.Crossbite: When the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned, one or more upper teeth can bite on the inside of the lower teeth causing wearing of the teeth, gum disease, and bone loss.Overbite: When the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth, it can lead to gum problems or irritation, and/or wear on the lower teeth and can cause painful jaw and joint problems.Underbite: This occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, caused usually by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or by missing upper teeth, preventing the normal function of front teeth or molars and leading to tooth wear, painful jaw and joint problems.If you think you have any of these conditions or simply want to learn more about Invisalign®, ask Dr. Leardi about this unique technology today and get the smile you want….invisibly!
