Can Invisalign Make a Jaw Open Wider?

Invisalign has been a popular way to straighten teeth since its inception in 1997. It involves wearing clear aligners that gradually move teeth into their proper positions. As long as you wear Invisalign aligners for at least 22 hours a day, you can achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

Here at Gladwell Orthodontics, we are huge advocates of Invisalign because of its ability to straighten teeth in a discreet and comfortable manner. With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about any metal poking your mouth and can eat, drink, and care for your teeth without any issues by simply removing the aligners.

Many of our patients seek orthodontic treatment because they have crowded teeth. This means, they don’t have enough room in their jaw for their teeth to fit normally. Their teeth may overlap, bunch up, and twist. They may also get pushed back to the front. The good news is that Invisalign is a great way to solve crowded teeth and the issues that come with them.

Invisalign can widen the jaw and ensure that all the teeth fit as they should. By resolving crowded teeth, you’ll find it easier to brush and floss your teeth and significantly reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease down the road.
