A crossbite occurs when there is a misalignment between the top and bottom rows of teeth, specifically when part of the upper row sits inside of the lower row instead of on the outside as they should. Invisalign in Northborough, MA may be a solution.
Can Invisalign Fix Jaw Alignment?
This problem can cause issues like jaw and muscle pain, trouble effectively chewing, and more significant problems like teeth rubbing, striking, and grinding in ways that they shouldn't. Jaw misalignment can cause wear on teeth and eventually cavities or tooth loss.
There is good news for people who suffer from crossbites and jaw misalignment; they are treatable. We can help our patients create a straight and healthy smile using clear aligners. For most crossbite cases, Invisalign can straighten and correct the issue. Patients in otherwise good oral health also typically make good candidates for Invisalign.
Knowing whether your crossbite and jaw misalignment are treatable with Invisalign requires a visit to your dentist for an exam.
