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, crooked or misaligned teeth, please give a call to our family dentists near you for assistance.
Teenage is a vulnerable time, and misaligned teeth can force your adolescent to 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 as well.
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 near you, please feel free to 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 any other problems like decay or cavity formation.
If you have overcrowded dentition, we may need to extract one or more teeth before starting Invisalign® treatment. Our highly trained dentists in Poway, CA use advanced scanning technology to show you images of the transformation. Invisalign® clear aligners take anywhere between 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 set of aligners in the Invisalign® series. Each set of aligners consists of plastic trays that are custom-fitted 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 more about Invisalign® clear aligners for adults.
