Common solutions from Invisalign®

Cosmetic Invisalign®

Invisalign is like a stealthy way to straighten your teeth. You get these clear, tailor-made aligners that are so discreet, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. They gently nudge your teeth into the right place, fixing gaps, crowding, or wonky alignments, so you end up with a smile that’s not just straight, but really shines. Plus, since they’re clear and smooth, you can show off your smile confidently while you’re getting there. It’s like giving your teeth a secret makeover!

Gaps in teeth

Invisalign offers a sleek and efficient solution for closing gaps between your teeth. Using a series of clear, custom-fitted aligners, it applies gentle, consistent pressure to shift your teeth gradually, closing any unwanted spaces. Each aligner is designed specifically for your dental structure, ensuring a targeted approach to aligning your teeth and eliminating gaps. Reducing this space will help alleviate food traps, and provide a youthful appearance.  

Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth are a very common problem, and can be treated with Invisalign®.   Very often, we will create very small spaces in between the teeth to help the teeth move into the right space.    Fixing crowding may also help with other problems related to the jaw joint.  


Upper teeth normally overlap the lower teeth. When this is reversed, it is considered an crossbite. Crossbites can cause extra wear on teeth, cracked teeth and jaw alignment issues. Some crossbites can be corrected by Invisalign, so schedule a consult with Dr. Lipscomb today!

Open Bite

An anterior open bite in orthodontics is a malocclusion where the upper and lower front teeth do not touch when the mouth is closed, creating a visible gap between them.   This is typically caused by a tongue thrust or airway issues.     Along with counseling on airway and tongue posture, Invisalign® can help close this space and improve function and appearance. 


An underbite is a malocclusion where the lower jaw extends past the upper jaw.    Only a select few of these cases can be treated with Invisalign®.    Their cause often involves skeletal alignment, and may require more complex orthodontic treatment.     Simple crossbites may be corrected by Invisalign® with extra help from Carriere appliances and other adjunct methods.   

Whatever you bite type, contact Dr. Lipscomb today,  and schedule your evaluation!    We will be happy to help!
