Invisalign

Invisalign is used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth, as well as close gaps and adjust overbites. The treatment involves wearing clear plastic trays that are customized for your mouth, making Invisalign a less-noticeable alternative to metal braces.

It is great that you are thinking about correcting your bite. With skeletal issues such as a slanted jaw, surgery is indeed required in order to achieve a good stable bite. However depending on the degree of skeletal discrepancy (slanted jaw) braces / invisalign are still opti...

It depends on how severe the underbite is and the underlying cause. Underbites can be caused by: 1) Jaw size discrepancy If your lower jaw is too large in proportion to the upper jaw, or the reverse, then a skeletal underbite is the result. This results when the dev...

Uprighting your upper 2nd premolars can be achieved with Invisalign or fixed (traditional) braces. If your tooth is very short on the palatal (side facing inward), then it may be more efficient to upright the tooth using fixed braces since the Invisalign aligner will have a smalle...

Thank you for your questions. Black triangles often appears after alignment in areas where there were previous overlapping of teeth, especially in adult patients. These black triangles can be minimized by doing some reshaping between teeth or what is commonly known as IPR (interpr...

Of course you can always modify your treatment plan midway through Invisalign treatment. Good communication between your orthodontist/dentist is essential to successful treatment. There must be a reason for your clinician deciding on the final result of the clincheck. Overb...

Hi there! Chewies are meant for you to bite whenever the aligners are placed back on your teeth. This is to allow better seating of the aligners to your teeth thus moving them in a more predictable and effective fashion. Chewies benefit most Invisalign patients. Do talk to your d...
