Burbank Invisalign expert, Dr. Marine Martirosyan, is now offering Invisalign Teen in addition to Invisalign and other orthodontic treatments. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that addresses abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws. Invisalign is one of the most advanced orthodontic treatments that addresses orthodontic problems without using metal, wires or brackets. Invisalign Teen has been designed to meet the unique needs of younger patients.
Orthodontic treatments may be recommended for patients who have:
- A maloccluded bite
- Poorly aligned teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Alignment issues that are affecting their smile aesthetics
According Dr. Martirosyan, "The main benefit of an orthodontic treatment is the optimization of dental, facial and smile aesthetics." By correcting alignment issues, excess pressure is taken off the jaw joint, and teeth are subjected to fewer stresses that could lead to injury or damage. When teeth are crowded or otherwise poorly spaced, they may be hard to clean, which can lead to an accumulation of plaque and tartar and increase the risk of gum disease and cavities.

Teens with orthodontic problems may benefit from Invisalign Teen rather than other types of orthodontic treatments that can interfere with their daily activities, sports and extracurricular functions. Invisalign Teen fits as easily into a teen's life as it does into their smile and includes must-have features for teens, including sensors that let patients know when to move on to new aligners and adjustable tabs that accommodate erupting teeth.
