Can Invisalign Fix Crowding?

In a word, yes! The orthodontic professionals at Fruge Orthodontics have used Invisalign clear retainers to fix and adjust crowded teeth for years.

What Are Crowded Teeth?

Crowded teeth, as the name implies, refer to when you lack the proper room in your jaw for your teeth to rest naturally and in a well-aligned way. It is possible for teeth to bunch up, twist, and even overlap. As teeth begin to move, they create a kind of “domino effect” for the rest of the teeth in your mouth to follow suit, potentially compounding the problem.

What Kinds of Issues Are Caused by Crowded Teeth?

Crowded teeth cause a myriad of oral issues. Flossing properly with crowded teeth is difficult because the teeth are reluctant to allow the floss to pass between them easily. Brushing with crowded teeth is challenging because plaque and tartar buildup is more likely to evade your toothbrush. This will cause an increase in cavities and gum disease down the line.
