Ocean Pediatric Dental Associates offers the latest in invisalign treatments. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teen’s teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by our orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit their mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. No two smiles are the same which is why we tailor a customized teeth-straightening solution just for your teen to give them a perfect smile.
Step 1: Meet with your dentist
The Invisalign system combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics. The first step is to visit our office and determine if invisalign aligners are right for your teen’s situation. Our team then sends precise instructions that the invisalign system uses to create a sequence of finely calibrated aligners. (As few as 12 or as many as 48 aligners)
Step 2: Start transforming your smile:
Once you receive the aligners, your teen will wear each aligner for about 22 hours a day for two weeks. The aligners are only removed in order to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teen’s teeth will begin to gradually move and adjust.
Step 3: Keep your new smile
After treatment is complete you will be smiling like never before! But there is still a chance that your teen’s teeth can continue to shift which is why invisalign also offers Vivera retainers to help retain that new smile.
Easy Oral Care — Because Invisalign aligners are removable, oral hygiene will be easy to maintain. Your teen will be able to clean their teeth more easily than if they were wearing affixed braces.
Discreet Look — The clear material of Invisalign aligners allow your teen to feel more confident while undergoing orthodontic treatment because the aligners are practically invisible on their teeth and will go unnoticed.
No Food Restrictions — Patients who wear braces must be more careful about eating certain foods to protect their wires and brackets from damage. When you are using the Invisalign system, you do not have to restrict what you eat, just be sure to remove the clear aligners before each meal.
Comfort — Invisalign aligners are made of soft, flexible plastic material that will not irritate the mouth, so your teen’s orthodontic treatment process will be a comfortable one.
