Does your adolescent or teen need orthodontic treatment for misaligned teeth? Teenagers often experience embarrassment when they sport a crooked smile. Our reliable dentists near you provide clear aligners for children as well as for adults.
Misaligned, crooked, overcrowded, or gapped teeth not only ruin your smile but cause other oral issues as well. For example, your bite may be impacted. Chewing forces may be unbalanced, resulting in indigestion issues. Apart from malocclusion, crooked teeth are difficult to clean and are associated with higher risks of plaque and gum disease.
The upper and lower dental arches may not meet correctly, leading to overbite or underbite problems. Misaligned teeth also have a tendency to rub against each other, resulting in premature wear and tear.
Patients at New Vision Dentistry may need to wear Invisalign® braces from 18 to 22 months, depending on the degree of alignment required. Invisalign®️ clear aligners work faster than conventional braces, and our young patients are able to view the progress under the care of our dentists.
The best time to wear Invisalign® clear retainers is after all the adult teeth have erupted between the ages of 11 – 14. However, it’s best to get retainers before your child becomes an older teen. Braces work best when permanent teeth have developed, but the jaw is still developing.
Invisalign® in Citrus Heights, CA works by applying suitable pressure on each individual tooth to move them into the desired positions. Our dentists use the latest imaging technology to examine your child’s oral cavity, and we’re able to show you the final results before starting treatment.
Invisalign® is transparent and works discreetly but effectively to straighten your teeth. There’s no worry about unsightly wires or shiny metal plates interfering with your day-to-day life. Patients can remove Invisalign® braces during meals, and they can brush and floss their teeth just as usual (unlike metal braces that are fixed onto the teeth).
