Can Invisalign Fix Just One Tooth Out of Place?

Posted .

While it’s more common for multiple teeth to be out place, sometimes, patients experience only one or two crooked teeth. If you have one or two teeth out of place, you may be wondering how to resolve them.

Here at Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we often recommend Invisalign. Invisalign clear aligners are completely comfortable and can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

As long as you wear the Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day, you’ll find your teeth gradually move in their proper position. Since a single crooked tooth or a few of them can offset the force of your entire bite and place pressure on isolated teeth, Invisalign is important.

After you complete your Invisalign treatment in about a year or so, you’ll be left with straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile that boosts your confidence and reduces your risk of oral complications such as tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ disorder down the road.

In addition, you’ll find it easier to clean your teeth because you’ll be able to get the toothbrush and floss in all the nooks and crannies of your mouth. You’ll also be able to prevent chewing problems that often result from misaligned jaws. Reducing your risk of TMJ disorder is another benefit.
