An underbite can be a source of embarrassment and can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Fortunately, there is a clear way to correct an underbite with Invisalign. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that gradually move your teeth into the proper position. Not only is Invisalign barely noticeable, but it is also removable, so you can eat and drink whatever you like during treatment. At Dentistry at The Grove in Burlington Ontario, we are proud to offer Invisalign as a treatment option for our patients.
What is an Underbite?
An underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth. This can give the appearance of a “bulldog” type of facial structure. An underbite can cause difficulties with chewing and speaking and can also lead to premature wear on the teeth. If you suffer from an underbite, Invisalign may be the right treatment option for you.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign consists of a series of clear aligners that are custom-made for your individual smile. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving on to the next in the series. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into place until you achieve the results you desire. Because Invisalign is virtually invisible, most people won’t even know that you are undergoing treatment.
The Benefits of Invisalign over Traditional Braces
In addition to being practically invisible, there are many other benefits of Invisalign over traditional braces. Because Invisalign aligners are removable, you can eat whatever you like during treatment without worrying about damaging brackets or wires. You will also have an easier time keeping your teeth clean since you can simply remove your aligners to brush and floss as normal. If you are looking for a discreet way to achieve straighter teeth, Invisalign may be right for you.
