Truline Invisible Orthodontic System involves the use of a series of clear plastic trays known as aligners to move your teeth the correct position. Many orthodontic cases can be treated using the Truline system but every case is different so only your dentist can advise if you are suitable for treatment using this method. The clear aligners mean there are no wires, metal or ceramic brackets or metal bands to irritate your mouth. Each aligner needs to be used for approximately 2-3 weeks and the aligners need to be worn all day and night with removal only to eat and clean your teeth.
Trulline aligners are especially effective if you have mild to moderate crowding or have worn braces before but the teeth have shifted somewhat. Many of other problems can also be treated but of course everyone is different and every case is different so it needs to be treated that way.
Some common problems treated with Truline include:
Overcrowding – This occurs when there is too little space for the teeth to align normally in the mouth. Overcrowding can cause tooth decay and increase the likelihood of gum disease.
Large gaps between teeth– This can sometimes occur because teeth are missing or because the jaw continues to grow abnormally.
Crossbite – This common dental problem occurs when one or multiple upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth. As a consequence, uneven wear can lead to bone erosion and gum disease.
Overbite – This problem occurs when the upper teeth project further than, or completely cover, the lower teeth. Eventually, jaw pain may occur.
Underbite – This is the inverse of the overbite; the lower teeth project further than, or completely cover, the upper teeth. Eventually, jaw pain can occur.
