Invisalign Teen Pasadena
Invisalign Teen is a completely customized orthodontic treatment designed just for teens. It includes all of the most popular features of traditional Invisalign with a few added features to make them more effective for younger users. Our Pasadena Invisalign Teen expert can help you decide if they are right for your teen.
Teens have unique needs. They often have busy lives filled with plenty of extracurricular activities. They are less likely to want to take time out from their days to sit in the orthodontist’s chair for regular adjustments, and they may not be willing to change their diets or lifestyles to accommodate treatment which can lead to broken wires or lost brackets. Invisalign Teen works differently and allows teens to get on with their lives with minimal interference due to treatment.
Pasadena Invisalign Teen
Our expert in Invisalign Teen in Pasadena creates the treatment plan based on 3D models of your teen’s smile. These images are used to plot the course of treatment and allow us to create new aligners for each stage. Your teen will wear his or her aligners for about two weeks at a time. The aligners include a Blue Dot Wear Indicator that lets your teen know when it is time to move to the next set of aligners in the series.
Your teen should wear the aligners about 20 to 22 hours a day, but they can be removed while he or she eats, which means that there are no dietary restrictions. Teeth should be thoroughly brushed and flossed after meals or snacks and before the aligners are replaced. Because your teen’s jaw may still be growing, Invisalign Teen uses a convenient Eruption Tab that adjusts to better accommodate erupting molars without the need for a completely redesigned treatment plan. Regular visits with our Pasadena Invisalign Teen expert will keep your teen’s treatment right on target.
Invisalign Teen makes it easy and comfortable for your teen to have a healthy, attractive smile. Give us a call today to find out if Invisalign Teen is right for your son or daughter or to schedule an appointment with our expert in Invisalign Teen in Pasadena.
