Can Invisalign Push Teeth Into Gums?

Posted on 2/15/2024 by Weo Admin
A woman holding her Invisalign clear alignerInvalisign is considered to be a better way of aligning teeth for a perfect dental structure. It is less painful and more aesthetic when compared to metal braces.

Invisalign and Orthodontic Intrusion

Invalisign can be used to push teeth into gums and correct a long tooth. Long teeth stick out more than others, creating problems when eating, and can also cause injuries. This technique of moving a tooth further into the gum is known as orthodontic intrusion.

The technique entails the attachment of anchors on adjacent teeth for the Invalisign aligners to grip while applying pressure to a tooth. This pressure pushes a tooth further into the gum and jawbone. A little pressure is needed to push teeth into gums, and thus, discomfort is likely to be minimal.

Risks and Side Effects of Orthodontic Intrusion

Orthodontic intrusion using Invisalign comes with a few risks and side effects. The main side effect of any invasive treatment is gum damage due to teeth movement. However, with proper assessment and monitoring, this risk can be minimized. Although Invalisign applies little force to teeth, patients have reported little discomfort that wears away as the teeth adjust and adapt to the shape of the aligner. When compared to metallic braces, Invalisign generally comes with lower risks.

What Conditions Does Invalisign Treat?

Invalisign treatment has been established to be beneficial to most common teeth conditions, including gapped teeth, crowded teeth, open bite, deep bite, crossbite, and deep bite. However, Invalisign will not work in the case of misshaped teeth, rotated teeth, and very large gaps between teeth. Some types of previous dental work, such as dental veneers, limit Invalisign attachment.

Will I Wear Invalisign Daily?

Wear your invasion aligners as much as possible for the best outcome and a quicker recovery. Only remove them when eating, brushing your teeth, or cleaning them. For long teeth, wearing the aligners for about 20 hours a day guarantees the best outcome. Considering that aligners are not visible or uncomfortable, this should not be difficult.
