What Can Invisalign Really Treat?


Many of the patients we see at Precise Dental Of Houston think they need full orthodontic treatments to correct their smile irregularities. When we tell them that Invisalign could do the trick they simply don’t believe us!

It’s a commonly held belief that Invisalign is purely for minor cosmetic issues. While it certainly can’t treat as much as traditional orthodontics there are still a lot of alignment problems that can easily be fixed through an Invisalign treatment. You might be surprised what it’s capable of fixing!

Fixing Your Smile With Invisalign

You’ll love the Invisalign treatment process. Your life will go in interrupted, no one will be able to tell you’re wearing aligners, and it’ll be over in just about a year.

Wondering if it’s for you? Here’s what we can do with Invisalign.

Closing Gaps

It’s one thing to close a simple gap between your two front teeth, but it’s another thing altogether to fix a smile that’s simply filled with gaps – or is it?

Invisalign is capable of closing wide gaps with ease, getting you from a bunch of disconnected teeth to one straight and beautiful row, and it can do so in just around a year. You don’t need to put up with hiding your smile anymore!

It’s important to fix gaps not only for the look of your smile, but also because of the extra exposure of gum tissue that it causes. Gapped teeth can increase your risk of developing gum disease due to the easy buildup of plaque bacteria. Just one more reason to get a great smile!

Giving Your Teeth Some Space

Do you have trouble getting floss between your teeth? That’s a sure-fire sign of crowding, and it’s also a big health risk! Crowded teeth are usually alignable with Invisalign, except for all but the most severe cases.

Because it can be impossible to get floss between crowded teeth your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease increases greatly. Don’t take chances with a crowded smile when you can perfect it and improve your health with Invisalign!

Is Your Bite A Bit Too Open?

Is there a space between your teeth when your jaw is closed? If so you’re suffering from an open bite. These are typically caused by an abnormality in your jaw or by thumb sucking when you were young, but it doesn’t matter: Invisalign can fix both!

Leaving an open smile alone can result in speech impediments and difficulty chewing certain foods, but  getting it fixed can be a snap at our Houston office.

Overbite And Underbite Fixes

Both underbites and overbites can cause jaw pain, joint problems, and muscle discomfort. Leaving an underbite or overbite untreated isn’t just bad for your smile – it’s bad for your oral health too!

The stress that an over or underbite puts on your jaw can result in temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. This painful condition can result in permanent damage to the jaw joint, leading to constant aches and pains. Thankfully Invisalign can fix it, and all in less time than traditional braces.

Uncrossing Your Bite

A crossbite occurs when your bottom or top molars are biting down on the middles of the opposite teeth and not the edges. This problems can lead to many of the same problems as over/underbites. It’s a painful and uncomfortable outcome that can affect the rest of your life.

Invisalign can give your teeth a boost into the right position by repositioning your bite. This kind of jaw movement was never possible in the past, but Invisalign technology keeps improving on what it’s capable of accomplishing!
