Is Invisalign right for you?
How do you know if Invisalign is right for you? Ultimately, you’ll need to visit Dr. Latner’s Los Angeles dental office for an assessment. Do you have any of the following problems with your smile?
- Crowded teeth?
- Gapped teeth?
What are malocclusions?
Overbites, underbites, and crossbites are different types of malocclusions. Your occlusion is how your teeth fit together. When your occlusion is right, your top teeth and bottom teeth fit together perfectly. Malocclusions are instances where the teeth do not fit together properly, and Invisalign can help change your bite for balance. An overbite is defined as the upper teeth coming forward and closing in front of the bottom teeth. An underbite is defined as the lower teeth closing in front of the upper teeth. A crossbite is defined as the side teeth not meeting properly, with either the upper or lower set falling inside of the opposing teeth.
Malocclusions can contribute to a number of problems, and not just the cosmetic kind. When your bite is improper, it can cause TMJ dysfunction over time and lead to dental wear. With Invisalign, we can fix not only crooked teeth that make you uncomfortable with your smile, but your malocclusions as well, giving you great TMJ function.
More about Invisalign
Dr. Latner was one of the first general dentists to offer Invisalign, and he has personally witnessed patients experiencing increased confidence and success after treatment. FDA-approved Invisalign clear braces are the “invisible” solution to straighten teeth without conventional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, and custom-made aligners to gently move teeth into their ideal position.
Because you can remove your Invisalign aligners before you eat and drink, there are no food restrictions or problems with flossing or brushing. Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable, clear acrylic, which means they don’t cause mouth abrasions common with the metal and wires of conventional braces. Adjustment visits aren’t required, either. You’ll spend less time at Dr. Latner’s Los Angeles office and more time enjoying life.
To create Invisalign aligners, Dr. Latner relies on 3D computer imaging to design a complete treatment plan, from the initial teeth alignment to the final, desired positioning. You can even preview your potential smile before beginning Invisalign treatment. Displeased with your smile because of misalignments, malocclusion, or even just slightly crooked teeth? You don’t have to be! You can be proud of your smile with Invisalign treatment from Los Angeles dentist Dr. Les Latner.
