Omid Barkhordar, DDS
There are many teens that require orthodontic treatment to correct common dental problems such as misalignment, overbite, underbite, crowding, crooked teeth, and gaps. Teens face enough pressure juggling school, extracurricular activities, and time spent with family and friends. Traditional metal braces can slow down active teens and cause them to feel self-conscious or uncomfortable with their smiles. Invisalign Teen® provides the same transformational results as many traditional braces, but uses virtually invisible aligners. With Invisalign Teen®, all anyone sees is your teen’s beautiful, healthy teeth both during and after treatment!
Advantages of Invisalign
Invisalign offers several advantages including benefits traditional metal braces simply can’t provide. These include:
- Unrestricted diet
- Removable aligners
- Custom fit for optimal comfort
- Fewer office visits
- Virtually invisible
- Equally effective as braces
Advantages of Removable Aligners
Because Invisalign’s aligners are removable, your teen can play sports, musical instruments, enjoy an unrestricted diet, and care for their natural teeth with ease. The removability of these aligners also make them easy to keep clean. Just pop them out and gently wash with lukewarm water, toothpaste, and a clean toothbrush.
Most Invisalign patients see results in about a year, though the individual timeline for each patient will differ according to the plan and problems at work. During treatment, teens need only visit our office once every 4 to 6 weeks to make sure the treatment is on track and teeth remain healthy. Your teen will need to change aligners at the appropriate stages, usually every two weeks, but this does not usually require an office visit.
First, Dr. Barkhordar and his team conduct a full evaluation to ensure treatment will safely and effectively correct your teen’s teeth. We use X-rays, impressions, and video representation to plan every stage of your teen’s oral care.
After the custom-made aligners are ready, we will explain to your teenager how to wear and care for the aligners.
