What kinds of orthodontic issues can Invisalign treat?
Whether you are looking to correct a complex orthodontic issue or simply to improve the overall appearance of your smile, Invisalign may be the ideal treatment option for you.

Can Invisalign correct an underbite?
When your mouth is closed, if your lower teeth are in front of the upper teeth, you have an underbite. Patients with underbites often find it difficult to talk or chew properly. Teeth can also wear down quickly due to an underbite. Depending on the severity of your underbite, Invisalign treatment may be able to help. Contact the Straight Smile dentist nearest you to find out whether Invisalign can help to correct your underbite.
Can Invisalign correct an overbite?
Do your upper front teeth that overlap your lower front teeth? If so, then you have an overbite. Although most people have an overbite to some degree, if your overbite is causing dental issues, or difficulties chewing or speaking clearly, contact your Langley Straight Smile dentist to find out how Invisalign's clear orthodontic aligners can help to correct your overbite. This orthodontic issue can cause problems such as teeth wearing down and jaw pain.
Can Invisalign correct a crossbite?
Are some of your upper teeth sitting inside your lower teeth while others are sitting outside your lower teeth? If so you might have a crossbite. A crossbite can cause teeth to chip easily or even to wear down more quickly than they should. Receding and notched gums can also result from a crossbite, which can be painful or lead to bone loss. Some types of crossbite can be fixed with Invisalign treatment. Contact your Langley dentist to find out whether Invisalign is the right orthodontic treatment to correct your crossbite.
