Getting the Smile You Want for Your Lifestyle

Do you feel self-conscious smiling during a photo due to crooked teeth or because you wear braces? Are you shy during a social situation or amongst a crowd because your braces can be visibly seen? There are several reasons why you may need braces, starting from misaligned teethed, the correction of over or underbites, and more. Wearing braces, however, is a long process and can make anyone feel conscious and shy. Have you ever considered Invisalign treatment?

Straighten teeth more comfortably and less visibly with Invisalign

Invisalign is a technology that will literally put a smile on anyone who needs dental braces. It is a clear and removable aligner made from plastic and suitable to tilt and rotate teeth in their correct position. They are custom made braces that do not use brackets or wires on the teeth and are also known as clear aligners. What’s more, they are scientifically proven to be an effective, easy and relaxed option for orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign clear aligners fit over the top and bottom of your teeth. Depending on the treatment, you will be wearing a series of aligners to gradually move your teeth into their desired position. Invisalign clear aligners can work for both simple fixes or more complex shifts. This will all be determined during your initial consultation and a customized course of treatment will be outlined for you. Making over your smile and transforming it into something you will love and wish to show off to others can all happen in as little as 6 months, depending on the complexity of the case.

Invisalign treatment for teenagers

Invisalign Teen are clear aligners specially designed for teens who are active, growing, and susceptible to the everyday mishaps that are part and parcel to adolescent life. Metal brace can be a real and formidable concern at this age and Invisalign is the clear choice for teenage orthodontic treatment. At Pasadena Smile Center, we are pleased to offer the Invisalign aligners to patients of all ages.

The aligners offer several benefits such as:

  • Invisalign trays are invisible, so they do not detract from your smile.
  • As they are made of flexible plastic, they are more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
  • You can remove them to brush and floss your teeth, and the Invisalign tray can be cleaned as well.
  • You will save time on dental visits as these aligners do not require a lot of maintenance.
  • You can eat what you want with Invisalign as it can be removed while eating. So, there are no food restrictions.
  • You can remove them during social events, and no one will know you use braces.
  • It is suitable for people of all ages, especially teenagers who wish to not wear metal braces.

How does Invisalign for teenagers work?

The Invisalign clear aligners are custom made to fit individual needs. A computer program takes into account how the teeth are aligned now, and how they need to be changed, and the aligners are custom made. A high-tech scanner is used to map out how your ideal smile should look and a custom treatment plan is then designed to help you achieve this. The tiny and barely noticeable aligners are worn for at least 20-22 hours a day, allowing for time to eat, brush, and floss.

The aligner tray is changed every one to two weeks and each tray that you will wear is different from the previous one, based on the progress and shift that will have been made. The tray will shift your teeth slightly and all small movements will add up to a big change that will result in a transformed smile, all in as little as 6 months, depending on the case.

If braces are not an option for you, or if your teen has expressed objections or reservations to traditional braces, then please feel free to call us and schedule a consultation with Pasadena Smile Center for Invisalign Teen treatment.
