Orthodontics is the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites) because of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships or both. Metal wires and brackets are used to correct crowded teeth, protruding teeth, gaps, deep bites, cross bites, overbites. This treatment in not just cosmetic but also improves the health of the jaw bones and facial muscles.
Once your ClincCheck has been approved by your orthodontist, Invisalign will make the custom aligners that will be used to straighten your teeth. The number of aligners that you'll need will depend on how complex your treatment plan is. Usually you'll have one aligner for every two weeks of treatment. It's important to wear your retainers for between 20 and 22 hours every day.
