Teenagers And Invisalign Treatment

clear alignersPeople who grow up with uneven or awkward smiles often go through orthodontic treatment during their teenage years. At our Woodland Hills, CA dentist’s office, we often work with teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth but wish to do so without traditional metal braces. Many people affected by malocclusion can qualify for this treatment approach, which relies on a series of removable clear aligners instead of a fixed appliance. This can help teens feel more comfortable throughout their their treatment period. It also ensures they look their best during important photos you will want to hold onto!

How Invisalign Helps Patients Discreetly Fix Malocclusion

With Invisalign aligners, we can help teenagers who need to fix problems with teeth that are unevenly spaced and visibly out of place. They provide orthodontic treatment without asking a patient to wear a permanent appliance made from brackets and wires. That makes treatment less conspicuous, something that image-conscious teenagers can certainly appreciate. It also makes orthodontic work easier because these appliances are removable, so they will not be in the way when a person eats or cleans their teeth.

Planning Treatments With Digital Scanning Technology

Thanks to our iTero digital scanner, we can make a patient’s treatment experience easier before they actually receive their appliances. Through this scanning technology, we can take detailed images that we then use to both determine how we should move your teeth and what shape and size your aligners should be. In addition to taking impressively detailed measurements, the iTero scanner offers more convenience, as you will not have to create a physical mold of your bite.

Invisalign Can Help Kids And Adults Straighten Their Teeth

With Invisalign aligners, we can help both adults and teens who are ready to fix problems with their smile. The teenage years are often when people fix gaps and overlaps between teeth, but many adults benefit from treatment, either because they never had their teeth straightened, or because their teeth shifted after an earlier procedure. By choosing clear aligners for your adjustment, you can feel comfortable during your daily life and also in social situations.
