Crowded Teeth with Invisalign – Garland, TX

The Clear Solution for Helping Crowded Teeth

crowded teeth

For teens and adults alike, crowded teeth are a common alignment problem in which teeth are too close together. With seemingly insufficient room for all of them in the arch, the teeth can be forced into positions that look and feel unappealing. Teeth can become layered or turned at odd angles, but these developments can cause more serious problems than just impaired aesthetics. Traditionally, fixing crowded teeth entails getting metal braces, but at Orbit Dental of Garland, we can use Invisalign to give you your dream smile without sacrificing your confidence.

Why should I fix my crowded teeth?

The most ideal scenario for your smile is evenly spaced teeth that stand side by side. When teeth come too close together, complications can occur. Crowded teeth, particularly layered teeth, can create pockets that are difficult to keep clean through brushing and flossing. As a result, harmful bacteria and plaque can build up in these nooks and increase your chances of tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath.

How does Invisalign help with crowded teeth?

Instead of using metal wires and brackets that force your teeth into a straighter position, Invisalign utilizes a series of clear, customized alignment trays that steadily apply gentle pressure on different parts of the your bite. Over the course of six months up to 18 months, the trays can maneuver your teeth to fit together properly within the arch. In cases of severe tooth crowding, you may need to have an extraction or a special orthodontic appliance before Invisalign treatment in order to make enough space to accommodate your teeth.
