Correct your crossbite with Invisalign® clear aligners

A crossbite will typically present itself as a child starts growing teeth, and you can expect it to be corrected as adult teeth emerge, but this is not always the case. With an ideal smile, your teeth will grow straight upward. But if you have a crossbite, your teeth will be tilted either towards the cheeks or the tongue, causing certain upper teeth to sit behind the lower teeth when your mouth is closed. This type of malocclusion is not simply an aesthetic issue but can cause significant dental issues as well.

What is a crossbite?

  • Regular toothaches
  • Headaches
  • Discomfort when chewing

It utilizes a series of clear plastic aligners crafted based on impressions of your teeth. You will wear a set of aligners for a fixed amount of time before moving on to the next one until you have successfully moved through the entire series. The aligners are comfortable and virtually invisible, so no one will be able to tell you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. You can remove them when you need to eat or brush your teeth, which really sets them apart from traditional metal braces.
