Clear Aligners For Crowded Teeth

Clear aligners are the best for fixing crowded teeth, they are able to move your teeth, create extra space between them which is sorely needed, and then use that space. These clear aligners would be worn for two weeks at a time, with each aligner working to create more space for the formerly crooked teeth to be moved into. The lower left lateral incisor, which is circled, moves down into position. Clear aligners use the space available and push the tooth down.

Sometimes, teeth that have been treated and re-aligned can still appear crooked because of uneven teeth edges. The actual alignment of the teeth is perfect, but the appearance can be deceiving.


What are crowded teeth?

If there is not enough space for your teeth in your jaw, your teeth can bunch up, overlap and twist, sometimes getting pushed to the front or the back. In this way, crowded teeth refer to a dental condition where all your teeth do not fit within your jaw. It occurs due to a lack of enough room in the jaw to accommodate erupting teeth. Jaw size can be too small, or the teeth can be too large when you have overcrowded teeth. Everyone’s jaws have arches meant for each tooth in the mouth. The arches have particular dimensions, which teeth should fit in. Teeth with large sizes can fail to fit within these arches and cause crowding. Signs of crowded teeth include overlapping teeth and twisting of teeth within their arches.


What causes crowded teeth?

Crowded teeth can be seen as soon as the teeth start developing in childhood. As we get older and grow gradually, our teeth and jaw will slowly be suit, but the whole process will not always run completely smoothly. The reason for crowded teeth may be as follows.

Childhood myofunctional habits, such as thumb-sucking, mouth-breathing and reverse swallowing.

Impacted teeth, or teeth that haven't fallen out naturally.

The jaw is too small to fit all the adult teeth in a straight, neatline.

The natural shape of the jaw, including overbites and underbites.


How to fix crowded teeth?

Actually, the properly fixing method depends on many factors, such as the age of the patient, the severity of your crowded teeth. Aligners are the most effective way for crowded teeth, especially in children. People get braces for both aesthetic and functional reasons (not only to correct smiles but also to realign the jaws).

There are a few different types of aligners to choose from, including traditional metal braces, clear aligners, and lingual aligners.

Clear aligners, such as TT Clear Aligners, are a type of orthodontic treatment that corrects crowded teeth and other forms of misalignment. They are a virtually invisible alternative to braces and cost about the same. Treatment consists of a series of removable aligners, and you must replace them every two weeks. Patients wear the aligners for about 22 hours each day for about 20 weeks to correct even mild malalignment.


Crowded Teeth Before And After

If there is not enough space for all the teeth to fit, or the jaws are too smaller than normal, teeth can overlap, become misaligned, and grow too closely together. Crowded teeth stops the permanent teeth from moving into the correct position, and can even avoid them from coming in at all. However, when teeth are properly aligned, they can work as intended normally, and are easiest to clean. Crowded teeth, on the other hand, wear unevenly, are difficult to keep clean, and contribute to compromised bone and gums.


How long does it take to fix crowded teeth?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It’s important to remember that every person is different, so you won't know exactly how long does it take to fix crowded teeth.

For simple cases, the process of fixing can be completed in as little as six months. In other cases, it may take 12 to 18 months. For more complex cases, which can include crowded teeth, treatment can take up to 24 months or even longer. Some cases are too complicated to be effective and the orthodontist may suggest traditional braces or another treatment option. No treatment is the same as everyone’s teeth are different.
