How to Fix a Crossbite With Invisalign
During your initial appointments at 172 NYC Dental, our team will complete a smile assessment, looking for all the signs of a crossbite. Once your condition is diagnosed, we take a 3D scan of your teeth to ensure Invisalign is the most suitable treatment option.
Invisalign clear aligners are practically invisible. Each set is worn for about a week, after which we replace them with the next set of aligners. This process continues until your teeth shift into their newly corrected position.
Completion time for Invisalign treatments varies from patient to patient based on the severity of the crossbite, meaning the number of trays created will be based on the total number of weeks you will need to wear the aligners. Minor crossbites may take only three months to correct. However, severe cases can take up to 18 months.
