Can Invisalign fix my bite - Down House Dental Practice in Steyning SussexWe talk a lot about transforming smiles here at Down House Dental, but braces began with correcting teeth first, smiles second. While the two have become inseparable now, a lot of patients still want to get their treatment and money’s worth by improving their bite while the work to achieve their new smile. Of course, the cosmetic benefits of Invisalign are well-documented as the braces themselves are clear and discreet, but do they help correct mouth function too?

The bite problems Invisalign can address

  • Gapped teeth leave your teeth and more gums more susceptible to disease and decay because of the vulnerability the spaces incur. Treatment with Invisalign can close these gaps to better the dental health of your teeth.
  • Overly crowded teeth are difficult to clean and therefore heighten your chances of decay and cavities. They can also impair mouth function and ache when at rest and in motion because of the two rows of teeth’s inability to fit together properly.
  • A deep bite is similar to an overbite and places a lot of pressure on the lower teeth. It is characterised by the upper row of teeth biting over the lower, wearing them down and even pushing them backwards to form a bit of a slope. This causes wear and tear as well as teeth and jaw ache.
  • An underbite is when the lower row of teeth bites over the top of the upper row, causing joint and jaw ache as well as limiting mouth function. It can misplace pressure onto the molars, causing wear and tear.
  • An open bite can cause poor or painful chewing, a speech impediment, and even lead to TMJ disorder (or temporomandibular joint disorder) which is when the jaw pops, clicks, or locks.
  • A crossbite causes one or more of the upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can be detrimental to your jaw health if the crossbite worsens and can also affect your mouth function when resting and in motion.

Invisalign is one of the only discreet brace systems that doesn’t just focus on the ‘social six’ teeth, which are the ones immediately visible at the front of your mouth when you smile. Because the aligner trays are made from impressions of your whole mouth, not just the front teeth, they are made to straighten your whole set of teeth. They are custom-built to your needs, so you can rest assured that even your troublesome back teeth or the canines you never thought would straighten are treated.

Healthier teeth

Invisalign can help you achieve healthier teeth in general, because the straightening and aligning of your teeth create a more even surface. This means that food debris and bacteria don’t have as many ridges and crevices to get stuck in and they’re far easier to clean as they are a more even canvas. This lessens your chances of developing cavities and decay through uneven teeth, and even closing the gaps in your teeth can protect the gums beneath.

Braces transform smiles, this is true, but here in Steyning they also transform your mouth function and bite. Discover more when you enquire online or speak to a member of the team to book your initial consultation.

This review is for Tesh the hygenist. I honestly can't recommend Tesh more highly. He is incredibly thorough and clearly knows what he's doing. Tesh is so good I have upped the amount of times I see him to every four months rather than every six. He keeps detailed notes of every visit so he can carefully track how I'm doing and help me target specific areas of concern. As I am getting older keeping my gums healthy becomes more important as I really want to keep as many teeth as possible in old age! Tesh is always upbeat, very encouraging and also keen to know how I and my family are doing.
