Invisalign Treatment for Crooked Teeth in Davis

Invisalign treatment for Crooked Teeth

Can Invisalign fix crooked teeth? The answer is yes. Invisalign
aligners will straighten your teeth but the degree of effectiveness is
dependent on the severity of the teeth’s crookedness.

Types of Crooked Teeth


An overbite is a condition in which your upper front teeth close in
front of the lower teeth. Overbites are corrected using Invisalign
aligners with mandibular advancements. In addition, they feature
precision wings that push the lower jaw forward. As a result, the upper
and lower teeth will align properly.

Crowded Teeth

Sometimes crowded teeth can also be classified as crooked teeth if
the crowded teeth are crooked upward or downward because of improper


Underbite is a condition in which the lower front teeth are in front
of the upper teeth. For cases of a severe underbite, additional
treatment may be required. Otherwise, Invisalign is sufficient to
correct the problem.


Crossbite is a condition in which your upper teeth sit inside your
lower teeth instead of on the outside.

Open Bite

An open bite is a condition in which your upper teeth do not touch
the lower ones when you close your mouth. Open bites lead to biting and
chewing difficulties.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign aligners work over a duration of time depending on the
condition of the teeth. Generally, children require 6 months while
adults require 1 year. The duration may be shorter or longer for some

A patient wears the aligners daily for 22 hours a day for best
results. These aligners are removable and can be taken out during
brushing and flossing.

Each set of aligners is worn for approximately 2 weeks and a new set
is given. Each set straightens your teeth a little bit, and over a
period of time, you get straighter teeth.
