Have you been struggling with an underbite, overbite, or other misalignment?

If you have, there is help in the way of Invisalign®.

Simpsonville Dental Associates welcomes you to their comprehensive guide on how Invisalign® works.

We’ll walk you through the ins and outs of this revolutionary orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign® can help you achieve a beautiful and healthy smile.

More than 15 million people have used Invisalign, so it is considered a great orthodontic option.

Let’s explore as we answer the question, “How does Invisalign® work?” Right here in Simpsonville, SC.

What it treats 

An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap with the lower front teeth. It can result in an unbalanced smile, discomfort, and difficulty chewing.

On the other hand, an underbite is when the lower front teeth protrude beyond the upper front teeth. The protrusion causes misalignment and affects facial esthetics.

Using clear aligners, we can treat both of these conditions. This treatment can impact oral health and confidence.

These aren’t the only issues we can correct with Invisalign®.

Other examples include

  • gaps
  • an open or crossbite
  • crowded or crooked teeth.

Invisalign® — what to expect

Simpsonville Dental Associates proudly offers Invisalign®, a modern and discreet alternative to traditional braces.

This orthodontic treatment involves a series of clear, custom-made aligners that gradually move your teeth into the desired positions.

Let’s take a closer look at the step-by-step process.

Initial consultation 

Your journey to a straighter smile starts with a visit to Simpsonville Dental Associates.

Our skilled dentists will conduct a complete examination.

This examination will include an assessment of your overbite or underbite condition.

This evaluation helps create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Custom aligners

Using advanced 3D imaging technology, we’ll design a series of custom aligners that fit snugly over your teeth.

These aligners are crafted from smooth, BPA-free plastic.

This ensures maximum comfort and a virtually invisible appearance when you wear them.

Gradual progression 

You’ll wear each set of aligners for about one to two weeks before progressing to the next stage.

As you switch to a new set of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into their desired positions.

Along the way, this movement will correct an overbite, underbite, etc.

Monitoring your progress 

Regular checkups with our team are vital throughout your Invisalign® treatment.

We’ll monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal results.

The advantages of Invisalign® treatment


Invisalign®’s clear aligners offer a discreet way to straighten your teeth.

This means you can enhance your smile without drawing attention to your orthodontic treatment.

Comfort and convenience 

Invisalign® aligners are made from a smooth plastic material, which makes them comfortable to wear.

They won’t irritate your cheeks or gums.

The best part is that you can easily remove these aligners. This means you can still eat all your favorite foods without any trouble.

And taking care of your teeth with regular brushing and flossing is simple too!

Effective results 

Invisalign® has been shown to be a very effective way to fix teeth alignment.
