Many teens can benefit from orthodontic treatment. A misaligned bite can lead to many dental health problems in adults, but crooked teeth can also lead to feelings of self-consciousness or embarrassment. Invisalign Teen is a great way for your teen to get a straight smile without all the hassle of braces. Our Huntington Beach Invisalign Teen expert can help you decide if Invisalign Teen is right for your teen.
Teens may be candidates for Invisalign Teen if they:
• Have crooked teeth
• Have gapped teeth
• Have crowded teeth
• Have underbites, overbites, or crossbites
• Have other mild to moderate orthodontic issues
Just like traditional Invisalign, Invisalign Teen uses custom-made clear aligners that straighten teeth gradually through a series of precise, targeted movements. They are designed with teens’ unique needs and concerns in mind. They are clear and comfortable, and they are removable, so they will not interfere with your son or daughter’s busy social and extracurricular calendars. Although your teen will have more control over his or her treatment, regular checkups with our expert in Invisalign Teen in Huntington Beach will help him or her stay right on track.

Additional features include the Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which tells your teen exactly when they need to switch to a new aligner. Special tabs are also included to accommodate erupting molars so that your teen will not need an entirely new treatment plan after his or her second molars come in. Our Huntington Beach Invisalign Teen expert will also be able to provide your teen with replacement aligners.
Invisalign Teen is just as versatile as traditional Invisalign and uses advanced 3-D dental technology to map tooth movements throughout each stage of the treatment and create digital models to create individual aligners. Treatment can usually be completed in about a year, but our expert in Invisalign Teen in Huntington Beach will make specific recommendations regarding treatment after evaluating and identifying your teen’s needs.
Removable aligners make it easy to continue normal daily activities, and your teen will be able to keep his or her teeth cleaner without the need for special tools or complicated routines.
