Invisalign for Teens in Huntington Beach
Invisalign Teen is the new type of treatment that does away with metal wires and gooey molds. Invisalign Teen can correct the most common alignment issues like overbites, gaps, and malocclusions.
Invisalign treatments, if delivered by an expert hand can accomplish the same result as traditional braces. They are simply worn over your teeth and changed every one or two weeks depending on the treatment plan.
Why Choose Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is a great way to entice an otherwise indifferent teen into orthodontic treatment. This style of treatment is popular with teens because it is easy to wear and it is invisible.
Invisalign Teen is a specialized orthodontic correction system that uses a number of different aligners to gently move teeth into a straight position. These aligners are clear and removable and custom-fitted to the individual.
Invisalign Teen fits perfectly in with their energized lifestyles as it requires fewer office visits than traditional braces. When Invisalign are worn correctly, follow-ups are only needed once every 6-8 weeks so their busy school work and social events need not to be disrupted.
Invisalign offers many advantages for teens over traditional braces. These include:
Blue Dot Technology
Invisalign Teen aligners are marked with a blue spot. This blue dot reminds you when to swap your aligner for the next one in the series. When the blue dot turns clear, you need to move on to the next aligner.
Less Dietary Restrictions
Your teen can remove aligners to eat and to brush teeth.
Keep in mind that the longer he wears his aligner, the better result he will achieve.
Less Speech Disturbance
With Invisalign, your teen can maintain her active and busy schedule, such as playing music instruments or sports with no disruption.
Easier Maintenance of Proper Oral Hygiene
Your teen does not need to worry about oral hygiene as much as he would with traditional braces. With Invisalign treatment, your teen can remove his aligner whenever he eats, and brushes like he always does.
Invisalign aligners are custom made and they can only fit into your teen’s mouth.
Invisalign aligners are flexible, smooth and contoured to his teeth only.

What are the Benefits of Invisalign for Teens?
Invisalign for Teens has many benefits over traditional braces. These include the ability to wear them and not be noticed. As the aligners are completely clear, you can attend a meeting or class without your clear aligners being noticed. It is also noted that there is less speech impairment compared to bracket and wire braces. There is also ‘Invisalign for Teens Teen’ that has blue dot technology so parents can keep an eye on the young patient’s progress.
Another benefit is the ability to remove them easily and painlessly to eat and clean. With traditional braces, the patient would have to avoid certain foods because of potential damage to the brackets and wires. With Invisalign for Teens, you can simply pop them out to eat. Just make sure you clean both your teeth and the aligners before putting them back into your mouth!!
