Invisalign Treatment for Crowded Teeth

Teeth crowding is a condition of misaligned teeth. Your teeth become
twisted, overlapped, or bunched up as a result of space shortage.
Crowded teeth impact your life in different ways including:

  • Altering your facial appearance

  • Causing discomfort or pain when biting or chewing

  • Biting your tongue or inner cheeks when speaking or

  • Difficulty in speaking

Invisalign offers dental treatment for teeth straightening using
clear aligners that shift your teeth into their proper positions over a
period of time.

Your dentist may recommend tooth extraction before you can start
Invisalign treatment.

  • Repetitive habits in childhood, for example, thumb

How can Invisalign fix crowded teeth?

Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material that
delivers a force that moves your teeth slightly every day.

Your Invisalign dentist uses X-ray machines and Invisalign scanners
to create custom-made aligners for you.

You will wear your first set of aligners for approximately 2 weeks
after which a new set is given.

Each set improves the condition of your teeth and depending on
whether your case is mild or severe, treatment can take 6 months to 18
