How Long Will Invisalign Take to Fix a Gap?
Invisalign is excellent for patients who wish to save themselves from the appearance of conventional metal braces. Since the aligners are clear, when wearing them on your teeth they are hardly noticeably and aesthetically pleasing. Invisalign aligners are even removable, which makes brushing, flossing, eating and drinking much simpler.
You may be wondering, who is an ideal candidate for Invisalign? The answer is anyone! There is not an age limit for who qualifies for Invisalign. In fact, both teens and adults are capable of receiving Invisalign treatment. Additionally, tooth movements of all kinds (crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites and gap teeth) are all treatable with Invisalign aligners.
More importantly, gap teeth are caused when there are extra spaces between two or more of the teeth can be fixed over a period of time with Invisalign aligners depending on the severity of the spacing. Since gap teeth can create pockets between the teeth and gums, food may get stuck frequently causing some discomfort making your gums tender or sore. When this happens there is a potential to lead to gum disease.
With the incredible advancements of Align Technology, the creators of Invisalign, there are unique ways to map out Invisalign treatment. Educated Invisalign providers use a software tool called ClinCheck software to digitally create an individualized treatment plan for each Invisalign patient. The software uses an algorithm to help calculate the right amount of force for every tooth movement. From the tiniest shift to larger complex shifts, Invisalign providers will use ClinCheck to create their desired end result—a beautiful smile. By setting up a consultation with an Invisalign provider, ClinCheck will customize your treatment plan to your specific needs.
