The Comprehensive Guide to Invisalign Teen: Benefits, How It Works, Common Dental Problems It Can Correct, and More!
Are you a teenager struggling with crooked teeth, spacing between teeth, overbite, underbite, or crossbite? While traditional braces may seem daunting, there’s a more convenient option that’s gaining popularity among teens: Invisalign Teen. At Magicland Dental, with locations in Rancho Dominguez, Compton, Carson, and Lakewood, we want to help you achieve a perfect smile while reducing discomfort and irritation that comes with traditional braces. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll cover how Invisalign Teen works, the common dental problems it can correct, benefits, and patient responsibilities.
How Invisalign Teen Works: Invisalign Teen is made up of clear aligners that are customized for each individual’s teeth. The aligners are replaced every two weeks, gradually moving teeth over time. When you arrive at Magicland Dental for treatment, we’ll begin with a consultation, where we’ll discuss the treatment timeframe and determine if Invisalign Teen is right for you. We’ll then use a digital scanner to create a 3D image of your teeth that accurately measures the specific movement needed for each set of aligners in your treatment plan.
Common Dental Problems That Invisalign Teen Can Correct: Invisalign Teen can correct various dental issues, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, spacing between teeth, and crooked teeth. Overbite occurs when the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth. Underbite happens when the lower teeth overlap the upper teeth, while crossbite happens when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth when you bite down. Open bite is when the upper and lower teeth don’t touch, while spacing between teeth occurs when there is a gap between teeth. Lastly, crooked teeth occur when one or more teeth are misaligned.
Benefits of Invisalign Teen: Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign Teen is convenient and virtually invisible. You can eat, drink, speak, and maintain oral hygiene normally during treatment. There’s also a reduction of irritation and discomfort compared to traditional braces. It also has a shorter treatment time compared to traditional braces, with the treatment period lasting between six to eighteen months.
Responsibilities of Invisalign Teen Patients: One of the most significant responsibilities of Invisalign Teen patients is to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day to achieve effective results. Proper care instructions for the aligners and teeth during treatment should also be followed. We recommend traditional braces for individuals who struggle with absent-mindedness or carelessness.
Conclusion: Invisalign Teen offers numerous benefits and advantages that make it an attractive choice for teens seeking orthodontic treatment. At Magicland Dental, our team of dental professionals is always ready to help determine if Invisalign Teen is right for you. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment with us to learn more about Invisalign Teen and achieve your dream smile!
