Having a deep bite exposes you to pain and deteriorates the gum tissue overtime. When you have a deep bite, the upper teeth cover a large section of the lower teeth putting the upper gum at serious risk of damage. The bottom teeth can wear down fast and the gums above will be slowly rubbed away as you bite. Fortunately, deep bites can be successfully treated using modern cosmetic dentistry.
Children should start going to see an orthodontist from an early age in order to diagnose issues like a deep bite and treat it early. If treatment is not administered at an early age, you can cause additional damage to your teeth and gums. In some cases, dental surgery is required because the deep bite caused severe damage. Work with an orthodontist who will design a suitable dental plan to treat a deep bite from as early as 7 years old.
A bite plane, which is a piece of acrylic, is placed on the upper front teeth on the permanent molars in order to assist the back teeth to come together. You will need to have the bite plane for six to nine months in order to correct the deep bite.
Deep bites cause misalignment of teeth which is why braces can be used as a treatment option. The braces will force the teeth to move into a better position. However, braces are not a popular choice especially among adults.
This technology was introduced to allow anyone suffering from a deep bite to correct the issue in a comfortable, efficient and less visible manner. Aligners are used to straighten the teeth. These aligners are hard to notice, unlike braces, and they can be removed and put back on with no hassle. Invisalign technology has advanced over the years to provide patients with aligners that achieve better outcomes.
Invisalign G5 is a type of align technology that has been recently introduced to further improve the efficiency of this treatment. Using these aligners, constant and gentle force is exerted to teeth to move them in the right locations. It has exciting new features which are designed to work best for any individual.
Unlike the standard braces, Invisalign G5 technology allows the patient to wear a custom set of aligners. There are different aligner trays for each patient and one is required to wear each tray for two weeks. These trays have been specifically designed for the patient based on the movement of each individual tooth. This technology is most effective because it allows the Barrie dentist to focus on teeth that are causing the deep bite.
The best thing about Invisalign G5 technology is that it can be done without anyone knowing that you have aligners on. Unlike the brackets, you never have to go through the discomfort of wires. You can continue with your diet because the aligners can be removed. Furthermore, Invasalign has better results than braces.
