Ocean Pediatric Dental Associates, along with the American Academy of Orthodontics, recommends that your child receive their first orthodontic check by age seven. Our dentists can inspect your child’s tooth development and then can determine if there might be potential for future issues that may affect your child’s bite or tooth alignment. Addressing these issues while your child is still growing and developing may help save your child from having complex treatment plans once their adult teeth have emerged. This, of course, can also help save you time and money down the road.
Easy Oral Care — Because Invisalign aligners are a removable orthodontic appliance, oral hygiene will be easy to maintain, as you will be able to clean your teeth more easily than if you were wearing affixed braces.
Discreet Look — The clear material of Invisalign aligners allow you to feel more confident while undergoing orthodontic treatment because the aligners are practically invisible on your 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 your clear aligners when you do eat!
Comfort — Invisalign aligners are made of soft, flexible plastic material that will not irritate your mouth, so your orthodontic treatment process will be a comfortable one.
The Invisalign system combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by our orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan.
Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign aligners are right for you. After our team send precise treatment instructions, the Invisalign system uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually until the final alignment prescribed is attained. You will be smiling like you never have before!
