Invisalign Solution for Teens
Invisalign is a technology for straightening teeth that uses precision computer technology to produce a virtually undetectable device called an aligner. The aligner is made from a clear material and customized to the individual. It fits over the teeth, using as few as 6 or as many as 48 aligners. To be an Invisalign Teen provider, an orthodontist must be trained and certified by Align Technology, and general dentists who do Invisalign treatment are not authorized to do Invisalign Teen treatments. More and more teens are finding the benefits of Invisalign over braces. Our office is not only trained and certified but we have been in the top 1% of the world's Super Elite Invisalign providers.
The benefits of Invisalign aligners include:
- Being easily removed to brush and floss
- You don't have to deal with dietary restrictions
- There are no uncomfortable wires to cause abrasions
- The aligners are nearly invisible; no one will know you are even wearing them
- A special tab on the rear of the special aligners for teens changes color from blue to clear to let you know the amount of time each one has been worn
- Six free replacement aligners are available in case any get lost or broken
Torrance and South Bay Orthodontic Treatments
The way the system works is that you wear a set of aligners for an estimated 1-2 weeks and then switch to a new one. You wear the aligner continuously, only removing it to eat, brush and floss your teeth. You will come back every 8 to 12 weeks and the full treatment time is an average of 6 to 15 months. Invisalign treats many misalignment conditions such as underbite, overbite, crossbite, widely spaced teeth, and overly crowded teeth. Your first step is to come into our office and find out if Invisalign is the right treatment for you.
