Invisalign for Teens
Gone are the days when braces seem to be the only option available for teens to correct their teeth alignment. Most teens feel unhappy at the idea of wearing braces because it comes with some discomforts and side effects. But thanks to the innovation behind Invisalign, there’s far less worrying to do.
Why Invisalign is Preferable for Teens
What is Invisalign and How Does it Work?
A series of clear, removable aligners are produced at the start of the treatment. Each aligner set is worn for about a two week period; you remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss your teeth and you must wear them the rest of the time. At the end of the two week period (or the time period prescribed by your treatment plan), you replace the aligner with the next set in the series.
This continues for the whole dental program prescribed. Your teeth are being moved by these aligners until they have straightened to the correct position. Every six weeks, you will need to visit our office to check on the progress and ensure that the re-alignment is proceeding according to the plan.

Is Invisalign Suitable For Me?
Invisalign can be used to treat these common teeth alignment issues:
Crowded teeth or overcrowding takes place when the jaw bone is too small for teeth to grow into the mouth on a straight trajectory. As a result, the teeth need to rotate and overlap against each other to fit in, creating crookedness and malalignment.
Like a jigsaw puzzle, teeth needs to be in a certain shape and size to have the best fit against each other..
An open bite occurs when the front upper and lower teeth slant in an outward direction, preventing them from touching each other when the patient bite down.
The opposite of an overbite, an underbite is seen when the lower teeth along the lower jaw protrude out further than the upper front teeth. Underbites are also often the product of incorrect jaw alignment.
An overbite is evidenced when the upper jaw and teeth are extend too far over the teeth on the lower jaw resulting in the appearance of protrusive upper lip and teeth, or buck teeth. Overbite is the result of a mismatch in the size between upper and lower jaw bone sizes, with an abnormally small lower jaw bone being the most common.
