What Can Invisalign Fix?

Beyond Braces: What Invisalign Can Straighten and Correct

We all desire a healthy, beautiful smile, and for many, achieving it means addressing common dental issues like crooked or misaligned teeth. Traditional braces were the primary solution for such problems in the past, but modern dentistry offers a more discreet and comfortable alternative – Invisalign®. At Neighborhood Dental, we are your trusted family, cosmetic, restorative, and emergency dentist, and we’re here to answer the question: What can Invisalign fix?

Invisalign in South Dakota


Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to straighten teeth gradually. These aligners are nearly invisible, comfortable, and removable, making them an attractive option for people of all ages. Invisalign® is one of the top teeth straightening systems for kids, teens, and adults, using customized plastic trays that gradually move teeth for the perfect smile. But what specific issues can Invisalign effectively address? Let’s explore.


✓ Overcrowded Teeth 

  • Overcrowded teeth occur when there is insufficient space in your mouth for your teeth to align correctly. Invisalign can help by gently moving your teeth into their correct positions over time, creating the space needed for a harmonious and balanced smile.

✓ Gaps between Teeth

  • Invisalign® can also address gaps or spaces between teeth. By gradually shifting teeth to close these gaps, your smile can become more even and aesthetically pleasing.

✓ Crossbites, Overbites, and Underbites

  • Malocclusions, such as crossbites (upper teeth fitting inside the lower teeth), overbites (upper teeth protruding excessively over the lower teeth), and underbites (lower teeth jutting out beyond the upper teeth), can all be corrected with Invisalign. This helps in achieving a healthier bite and a more comfortable jaw alignment.

✓ Mild to Moderate Bite Issues

  • Invisalign® is not just about cosmetic improvements; it can also address mild to moderate bite issues, improving functionality, comfort, and oral health. A proper bite ensures that teeth come together harmoniously, reducing the risk of problems like grinding or excessive wear and tear.

✓ Straightening Teeth for Teens and Adults

  • Invisalign® is suitable for both teens and adults, providing a flexible treatment option for a wide range of orthodontic issues. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is less noticeable and doesn’t interfere with daily life.

At Neighborhood Dental, we proudly offer Invisalign® as part of our comprehensive dental services. If you are seeking a versatile and effective orthodontic treatment to address a wide range of dental issues, call or schedule a complimentary smile consultation to see what’s possible for you! Whether you’re a teenager seeking a more discreet option or an adult looking to enhance your smile, Invisalign® can be the key to achieving the confident and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.


Various factors can impact the cost of treatment, such as the complexity of treatment and patient consistency.  The duration and complexity of your Invisalign® treatment will influence the total cost. Longer, comprehensive treatments with more aligners are typically more expensive than shorter “express” treatments. The effectiveness of Invisalign® aligners hinges on a patient’s adherence to the treatment plan, which mandates wearing them for 20 to 22 hours daily under the guidance of their local dentist. Given that these aligners can be removed, some individuals might unintentionally deviate from the prescribed usage instructions, such as the recommended daily wear duration, resulting in extended treatment periods and increased expenses.

The cost of Invisalign® varies based on individual treatment, but some dental insurance providers may cover costs. Please get in touch with one of our eight locations directly to discuss your smile goals and treatment plan, which will determine the total cost of treatment.
