Is It Possible To Receive Invisalign For Bottom Teeth Or Top Teeth Only

If you’re looking to improve your smile but feel as though you only need partial treatment, getting Invisalign for bottom teeth or top teeth only could be a consideration for you. This will involve a single arch treatment where you’d only require wearing aligners for one arch of your mouth. This tends to be an option for patients who are looking to rectify a specific problem with their teeth rather than adjusting your entire occlusion (the biting relationship between your lower and upper teeth).

With single arch treatment, you can save on the cost of your Invisalign and reduce the number of aligners you need to use.

How does single arch treatment work?

Traditionally, invisalign treatment involves wearing a pair of aligners for your bottom teeth and top teeth. Single arch treatment simply involves wearing Invisalign for bottom teeth or top teeth only depending on your specific needs.

It’s important to note, however, that not everyone qualifies for single arch treatment and your dentist will only examine this on a case by case basis. They’ll determine if you qualify for it depending on your occlusion (how your teeth bite) and the overall needs that you have in regards to your smile.

When does Invisalign for bottom teeth or top teeth only work?

A single arch Invisalign tends to be suitable when you only have a few crooked teeth and generally have cosmetic dentistry aspects in mind for straightening your teeth and improving the appearance of your smile. If you have issues with cross or overbites, this is where treatment for both arches will be more suitable.

Single arch treatment tends to be more suitable for the correct the following:

  • Spacing or gaps
  • Slightly crooked front teeth
  • A misaligned tooth
  • Any teeth in your smile zone
  • Any previous orthodontic treatment that didn’t match your needs

Are there any risks to having single arch treatment?

The biting relationship (occlusion) between your top and bottom teeth are very precise when they close against one another. If you do adjust your bite, it can easily change the points where your teeth bite which can cause some teeth to bite harder or higher than others. As a result, you may experience common toothache and tooth wear problems if this isn’t done correctly. This is why the monitoring of your mouth bite is important throughout the treatment.

With single arch Invisalign for your bottom teeth or top teeth only, we’ll ensure that the overall occlusion isn’t affected. As there is only one arch of the mouth that’s being treated, the overall arch of the mouth still needs to be considered. Fortunately, the majority of Invisalign single arch treatments involves adjusting the bottom and lower front teeth which allows movement to still be possible without impacting the opposing teeth.

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
