Are clear aligners the right treatment for you? For many patients at Station Dental, the answer is yes.
Clear aligners are designed to treat several dental problems.
Overbite: An overbite occurs when the upper jaw protrudes over the lower jaw. If your teen or adolescent has a large overbite, it can cause pain in the jaw and lead to dental enamel wear and tear.
Underbite: If your lower jaw protrudes over the upper jaw, you may have an underbite. An underbite can make it difficult to speak and chew properly. Clear aligners can correct some underbite issues.
Crossbite: When the upper and lower jaws are misaligned, it is known as a crossbite. We can use clear aligners to correct a crossbite.
Open Bite: If the jaws don’t meet when the mouth is fully closed, this is known as an open bite.
Gaps in the Teeth: Food particles get stuck in gaps between one or more teeth and can increase the risks of decay and gum disease.
Clear aligner treatment near you can be effectively used for younger as well as older patients.
The teenage years can be a challenging time for your child as they transition into adulthood. Clear aligners help them feel less self-conscious, and they can continue their daily activities and social interactions without feeling embarrassed.
The aligners are made of a material that feels comfortable and is also easy to remove and re-insert.
