Dr. Rick Brar, Elgin, IL dentist, wants patients to know that Invisalign isn't just great because it's clear-it's also boast great results. Check it out below!
ELGIN, IL, December 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It's common knowledge that Invisalign is a clear, plastic aligner that discreetly corrects alignment. Unfortunately, some people still are unsure about Invisalign's capabilities. It's true that Invisalign treats a variety of malocclusion issues. Dr. Rick Brar, Elgin dentist, discusses the types of malocclusion Invisalign treats and the benefits that come with treating malocclusion.
"Invisalign has treated many cases of malocclusion, and the results are amazing. It's important to gather as much information as you can when deciding on an orthodontic treatment. I assess a patient's malocclusion to decide on the type of treatment, but I also make sure to take a patient's needs into account," said Dr. Brar, dentist in Elgin.
Crowded and gapped teeth are a result of an abnormal growth of the jaw. If the jaw is too small for the teeth, newly erupted permanent teeth will become crowded. Or, the jawbone may be too big for the number of teeth coming in; thus, space issues occur. Missing teeth also cause other teeth to shift away from their original position.
Bite problems, such as overbite, underbite, openbite and crossbite, are treatable with Invisalign, and it's important to start orthodontic treatment to prevent further damage to the gums and teeth. Without proper treatment, bite problems can cause friction and result in worn teeth. Or, the jaw misalignment can put too much pressure on the jaw joints, causing pain and possible temporomandibular joint disorder.
Invisalign is an affordable and effective straightening option for a variety of dental problems. Fixing a malocclusion issue is the most important thing to remember. No matter the treatment option, straight teeth will be the end result. Invisalign's clear, plastic aligners-that's an added perk for patients. Talk to Dr. Brar regarding the process of orthodontic treatment, and he always suggests an option that will benefit a patient the most in the long run.
