Invisalign was created in the late 90s and has since been used to correct the smiles of thousands of people around the world. It uses advanced computer technology to design and implement the treatment plan, which is completely customized for each patient. Our orthodontist in Los Angeles can help you decide if Invisalign is right for your teen.
Invisalign Teen uses the same technology and process as conventional Invisalign, but it also features additional options that make it more teen-friendly. After the records are taken, we will create a virtual 3D model of your teen’s mouth. This model allows us to manipulate the position of each tooth until we create a perfectly balanced relationship between the jaws and proper spacing and positioning among the teeth. The aligners are created based on the mapped movements, and your teen will wear the aligners for two weeks at a time, during which the teeth will gradually move to their new positions.
Teen-friendly features include eruption tabs, which make it easier to accommodate erupting teeth, and the Blue Dot indicator, which helps you and your teen keep track of wear-time.
