If you have minor teeth alignment issues or crooked teeth, you may be interested in Invisalign treatment in Jacksonville, FL. Your local dentist, Dr. Selena Marchan, will use her professional expertise to give you the straight smile of your dreams.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear plastic aligner tray used to straighten crooked and misaligned teeth over time. It was created as an alternative to braces for adults. However, teens and children also use Invisalign now. It has become very popular since the clear aligners are barely noticeable. You can wear your aligner out in public, and it would not be noticeable. You can also remove the aligner from your mouth as needed to eat, drink, or brush your teeth.

Does Invisalign Change the Shape of Your Face?

When you come to our office in Jacksonville, FL, for Invisalign treatment, you may end up slightly changing the shape of your face over time. After all, crooked teeth can influence the shape of your face. An overbite forces your upper lip to protrude out. On the other hand, an underbite will make your lower lip protrude out more. If your lip no longer has to protrude out over a severe overbite or underbite, your lips will appear differently. Your lips may appear less plump if your teeth are positioned further back in your mouth.

Your profile may be adjusted. When such bite issues are corrected, they can shift your face slightly. If your face is asymmetrical, Invisalign and other braces may be able to improve it. 

However, Invisalign does not change the shape of your jaw. Braces and Invisalign also do not have any effect on the shape of your nose. Any visible changes in the shape of your face will most likely be seen on your lips.
