A malocclusion means a problem with the alignment of your teeth.

Misalignment of the teeth includes underbite, overbite, crossbite, overcrowded teeth, open bite or overjet.

A crooked smile can lead to long term problems such as issues biting or chewing, jaw or face pain, and speech impediments.

Our team of dentists at Gentle Dental are committed to tailoring treatments to each patient’s needs to ensure the best quality care.

What causes misaligned teeth?

There are a number of things that cause malocclusion of the teeth:

  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Childhood habits such as thumb-sucking, tongue thrusting, prolonged bottle-feeding
  • Injury or trauma
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Jaw length
  • Genetic inheritance of a malocclusion

There are a number of options available to you to achieve a straighter smile.

Invisalign: The solution to misalignment

Invisalign braces are commonly used to treat various malocclusions such as overbite, crossbite, overcrowded teeth, overlap and underbite.

Overcrowded teeth

Invisible braces are an effective solution for teeth that are overcrowded.

By discreetly and gently moving the teeth into a more aligned position, Invisalign can relieve the pressure on your teeth.

Overbite or Underbite

As a corrective alignment treatment, invisible braces are a proven solution to an over or underbite.

How long does Invisalign take?

Wearing orthodontic silicone trainer

Depending on the class of your malocclusion and your individual needs, Invisalign treatment van last between 6 and 18 months.

They are a faster solution to traditional braces, however, these may be needed in more severe misalignment cases.

Invisalign, if worn as prescribed by your dental specialist, can show visible results in just a few weeks.

They are also practically invisible, so you can smile with confidence while your retainers do their work, and you don’t have to worry about highly noticeable metal braces.
