How can we help you?

At Middletown Dental, we want you to be an active participant in achieving and maintaining your oral health, and we understand that you may have questions about your treatment.

Any dental treatment has the potential to change a patient’s facial or oral anatomy. Orthodontic treatment straightens teeth and creates a proper bite. But many people wonder if Invisalign changes your face shape. 

To answer this question simply: Invisalign can change your face’s shape, but this depends on the type, severity, and extent of malocclusion. Every patient is different, so the only way to have a more specific idea of what to expect is based on your unique situation. 

Personalized Orthodontic Treatment Just for You 

When your Invisalign dentist creates a personalized treatment plan for you, they base it on your profile and facial features while also considering how your face will change as you age. Our commitment to detailed and precise treatment and modern technology will ensure your best smile. 

How Braces Can Change Your Face Shape 

People rarely have perfectly symmetrical faces, and it’s not something we often notice. However, facial asymmetry can be more recognizable and pronounced when a person’s jaws grow at different rates or are in different positions. Invisalign can align the jaws and bring your facial features and symmetry into balance. This is especially true if you have an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or other misalignments.
