Will Invisalign Close the Spaces and my Gap?

Invisalign can close the spaces or gaps between teeth

+2

Invisalign is a great way to close gaps and spaces between teeth but you really need more information to answer your question. Invisalign is very good on patients with over crowded teeth, crooked teeth and closing gaps between teeth. However, there is only so much space they can close. It would also be better to understand, before treatment, why there are gaps in the fist place.  They could be because of a tongue thrust problem, or problems with your bite. You need to see a qualifed invisalign provider or an orthodontist who can accurately access your particular case and decide what method is best to treat the gaps between your teeth. Invisalign is a wonderful way to go and a very cosmetic way to go, but there are certain limitations that invisalign has and you need to be aware tof them so you choose wisely the type of treatment that will be most effective for your teeth.  You want a good result in the end, and that is all that matters. Make sure you consult with more than one dental professional before deciding what to do!  Hope this helps!

Invisalign closes spaces

Invisalign is a great option for closing spaces.  With space closure, it is really important to try to determine the cause of the spaces so that your orthodontist can plan for the proper retention.  For example, if the reason you have spaces are because of a tongue thrust habit (tongue pushes against teeth on swallowing), then you will need a retainer that keeps the tongue away from your teeth.  If this is not done, the spaces may return.

Invisalign is a great choice for closing your gaps although it does have some limits as to how much you can close.  The best course of action is to consult a local dentist or orthodontist who provides invisalign to see if you are a candidate

Good luck

Closeing gaps with Invisalign

+1

Honestly it depends on why there is a gap there. Invisalign is very predictable at closing gaps and keeping them closed when there are not underlying counterproductive influences. A few examples would be, a tongue thrust, bite interferences, a large muscle between the teeth that wont allow closer without its removal. This is what would be determined during your consultation.

Invisalign is perfect for space closure and gaps

+1

Invisalign is a very ideal therapy for space and gap closure.  Invisalign has so many advantages over traditional braces when it can be used. The teeth are so much easier to keep clean and the trays used look and feel so natural.  A trained Invisalign dentist can evaluate your teeth and tell you if Invisalign is possible.  You will be able to see what can be done on a 3-d virtual image of your case after the necessary pictures and impressions are taken by the invisalign dentist. Definitely check this out!
