Are you a candidate for Invisalign
treatment in Etobicoke?
posted by sherway dentistry
With the introduction of Invisalign, orthodontic treatment became amazingly convenient and cosmetic. Through the years Invisalign's technology has continued to improve and deliver beautiful and predictable results. Our Etobicoke and Mississauga dental patients love the ability to straighten teeth without metal braces.
Conditions Invisalign can treat
When Invisalign technology was new, it was usually recommended for cosmetic improvements. Gaps, mild rotation, and similar concerns could be corrected with aligners, but traditional orthodontics were used for serious bite problems. Thankfully, Invisalign technology has evolved greatly over the years. Today, the cost, treatment time, and results of Invisalign are comparable to metal braces in most situations.

- Crossbite – The lower and upper jaws are not properly aligned. When the mouth is closed, some of the upper teeth are positioned inside the lower teeth.
- Crowded teeth – Teeth are too close together, making it difficult or impossible to brush properly. They are often crooked or rotated as a result of insufficient space.
- Open bite – When the mouth is completely closed, some of the upper teeth do not contact the lower teeth. It is usually the result of abnormalities in the jaw development.
- Underbite – The lower teeth extend beyond the uppers when the mouth is completely closed. The upper jaw may be overdeveloped or the lower jaw may be underdeveloped.
- Overbite – The upper teeth protrude far past the lower teeth when the mouth is closed. It may be caused by dental problems, or improper jaw development.
- Gaps between teeth – Excess space between teeth can increase the risk of gingivitis, because gums are not adequately protected. It also affects the appearance of your smile.
