Invisible aligners are popular orthodontic tools that are difficult to notice. Unlike unsightly metal braces with wires and brackets, Invisalign® straightens your teeth while working unobtrusively in the background.
If your child needs help with malocclusion or crooked or misaligned teeth, please call our Invisalign Dentist in Poway, CA, for assistance.
Teenage is a vulnerable time, and misaligned teeth can make your adolescent feel embarrassed and self-conscious. But this is only one of the drawbacks of crooked teeth. They can also interfere with bite, disrupt chewing ability and cause speaking difficulties.
When ignored, misaligned dentition leads to an unbalanced distribution of bite forces and can result in stress headaches, teeth clenching, premature wear, and TMJ problems, including jaw pain. If you’re considering getting Invisalign® braces, please bring your teen or pre-teen for a consultation at Heavenly Smiles Dentist.
Once you visit our dental office for a consultation, we will first conduct a detailed evaluation of the oral cavity and examine the angle, number, and alignment of teeth. Our experienced dentists will check gum health and other decay or cavity formation problems.
If you have overcrowded dentition, we may need to extract one or more teeth before starting Invisalign® treatment. Our highly trained Invisalign dentist near you uses advanced scanning technology to show you images of the transformation. Invisalign® clear aligners take 12 to 18 months to shift your teeth to the desired positions. Treatment may take longer for young patients with severely misaligned dentition.
We check your teeth for progress roughly every two weeks. After examining your teeth, we provide you with the next aligners in the Invisalign® series. Each set of aligners consists of custom-fitted plastic trays for your needs.
Our skilled dentists at Heavenly Smiles Dentist possess the expertise and skill to create stunning, even smiles that will boost your child’s confidence. Patients can also contact our responsive dentists to learn about Invisalign® clear aligners for adults.
