A Wonderful Blend of Preventative Dentistry and Braces.
Teens and young adults have added pressures when it comes to school, peers and social media. Their appearance awareness is magnified during this maturing process. Invisalign was designed to provide orthodontic corrections without being seen. If you have a diligent teen, who may not feel comfortable with traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be an attractive option.
Invisalign aligners work in most cases to help treat numerous orthodontic problems including overbites and underbites, as well as crowded teeth, gaps between the teeth, and rotated teeth. These invisible braces are an appealing choice for many adults too. Especially those who wore braces as children and experiencing teeth shifting in adult life and are now in need of some correction. You will be able to see your progress along the way and enjoy your new smile as it transforms with each aligner.
Before starting Invisalign treatment, a 3D scan of your mouth and a bite registration will be taken. We also take photos and x-rays to work up a complete treatment plan. These will be used to help Brent J. Porter D.D.S, your Santa Cruz Pediatric Dentist, show how the patient’s teeth and jaws fit together and give record of their profile, face, and teeth before treatment.
Please contact our friendly team today if you have questions or would like to schedule a visit with Brent J. Porter D.D.S., Santa Cruz Children’s Dentist at (831) 459-9802. We look forward in hearing from you.
