Use of Invisaligner

It can be used when the teeth need correction. The teeth can be overcrowded; i.e. teeth get less space to adjust on the gums. If this is not treated on time, there are chances of teeth to become harder and left unclean. Contrarily, the widely spread teeth are small sized and with gaps. Crossbites is the situation when both the jaws are not aligned properly, and overbite is the overlapping of upper teeth with the lower ones.  Lastly, it can also be underbite, wherein the lower teeth stick out of front teeth. This can be caused by missing upper teeth or by undergrowth of the upper jaw, or by undergrowth of the lower one.

All the major teeth problems are due to bad oral habits, heredity, or the incorrect development of bone that supports the teeth.
