Invisalign corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces; the only difference is that Invisalign trays are almost invisible to the naked eye, and can be removed at will.
Here are some problems that are commonly corrected with Invisalign:
If your teen is tired of living with crooked teeth, now is an excellent time to consider orthodontics. At Lotus Family Dental: Yuki Dykes DDS we regularly answer questions about Invisalign Teen® as an alternative to braces for teens. This product is growing in popularity as more and more teens are transforming their smile without the use of bulky and noticeable braces. If you live in Parker, CO or the area, we encourage you to call (303) 502-2744 and schedule an examination. We can let you know whether or not Invisalign® is the right solution for your child and how to get started.
While braces are traditionally associated with children, the process of using clear aligners is better suited for adult teeth. This is because Invisalign® works using a series of clear aligners. Before the treatment starts, an impression will be taken of your teeth, along with measurements and pictures. These will then be used to create 3D images and project what your teeth will do when pressure is applied to certain teeth. The entire treatment plan will be created using high-tech computer software and input from our team of professionals. The Invisalign® lab will then make the aligners. Each aligner is designed to move specific teeth and to be worn for two weeks at a time before being switched out for the next one in the series. Since the aligners are created at the beginning of the process, it works best on adult teeth that are fully mature. Some older teens can also benefit from straightening their teeth with Invisalign®.
