Invisalign Clear Aligners Alpharetta GAnvisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic system that uses custom-fitted, transparent plastic aligners to straighten your teeth and bite. Instead of metal appliances, this teeth straightening system uses plastic trays to apply controlled pressure on the teeth.
Since it entered the market, Invisalign has undergone several advancements, enabling dentists to correct numerous teeth and bite problems. But can Invisalign correct protruding teeth? Atlanta Center for Dental Health is a leading Invisalign provider in Alpharetta, Georgia, and Drs. Bradley Hepler and Roy McDonald have extensive experience with many orthodontic cases. If you have protruding teeth, continue reading to discover how our skilled doctors can assist you with Invisalign.
Also known as an overbite or buck teeth, protruding teeth occur when the upper teeth sit too far forward than the lower teeth. An overbite not only makes you self-conscious but also affects your bite and oral function.
Protruding teeth can occur in childhood, adolescence, and even in adulthood.
Here are the common causes of overbites.
Invisalign effectively corrects overbites if the cause is dental factors, such as thumb sucking and overcrowding. However, if the cause is skeletal issues like an underdeveloped jaw, the dentist or orthodontist will recommend an orthognathic surgery followed by Invisalign. Whatever the case, you must schedule a consultation with a dentist to examine your teeth and jaw to determine the best course.
If Invisalign suits you, we’ll digitally scan your mouth to create a 3D rendering of your mouth. Using advanced technology, we preview a roadmap of your procedure, showing how and when each tooth will move to perfection. Then, you’ll receive custom-fitted aligners, which you should wear 20-22 hours daily, only removing them when eating or cleaning teeth.
Invisalign trays slowly move your teeth, and you should switch to new aligners every two weeks. This process continues until all teeth are shifted and no longer protruding. Your procedure needs 12-18 months, but milder cases take far less time.
If you want comfortable, convenient, and discreet care for protruding teeth, Invisalign is an excellent solution. To get started, please dial (866) 687-1992 to schedule an appointment with the Atlanta Center for Dental Health.
