Can Invisalign Straighten Long Eye Teeth?

Can the Invisalign straighten all teeth including the eye teeth that are in the gums and that look like vampire teeth? The eye teeth are longer than the rest of my teeth. How much would it cost to straighten all teeth?

Invisalign absolutely can correct this problem

Its called intrusion and it one of the easier movements that are done with Invisalign.

What should be done first though is to contour the canines, so that they are shovel shaped and not so pointed like a vampire. Then, have the impressions taken and the clinchek produced.

You can always push the tooth up, but doing this little step will give you a much nicer result.

Have fun!

Invisalign can straighten eye teeth

Invisalign can straighten teeth just like other appliances. "Eye teeth" do have longer roots and takes a little longer to get them straight.

The treatment fees vary depending upon the complexity of your case. Please see a certified orthodontist in your area, and they will give you a free consultation where they will be going over everything in detail.

Good luck!!!
