What Orthodontic Conditions do Clear Braces Treat?

Both Invisalign and Damon clear braces can correct mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Under the guidance of our highly-skilled Irving Orthodontist, these methods can be used for some complex issues.

The following are some common conditions that clear braces can correct:

  • Overcrowding – This occurs when there is too little space for the teeth to align normally in the mouth.  Overcrowding can cause tooth decay and increase the likelihood of gum disease.
  • Gaps Between Teeth – This can sometimes occur because teeth are missing or because the jaw continues to grow abnormally.
  • Cross-bite – This common dental problem occurs when one or multiple upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth.  As a consequence, uneven wear can lead to bone erosion and gum disease.
  • Over-bite – This problem occurs when the upper teeth project further than or completely cover the lower teeth. Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ may occur.
  • Under-bite – This is the inverse of the overbite; the lower teeth project further than or completely cover the upper teeth. Eventually, jaw pain and TMJ can occur.
