Invisalign in San Diego

Changing Smiles Not Lifestyles

At Scripps Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, it is important to us that we find an option for your child’s dental needs that leaves them feeling confident and ready to flash their smile as often as possible. We understand the frustration and anxiety some children face when they hear that they must get clunky metal braces in order to straighten their teeth.

Fortunately, Dr. J Shahangian is able to offer the alternative method of correction called Invisalign. If you are interested in learning more about this virtually unnoticeable orthodontic option, reach out to our San Diego pediatric dentistry office today.

Why Choose Invisalign Over Metal Braces?

Most children need braces due to uneven spacing, overcrowding, or an issue with their bite. Invisalign has been tried, tested, and proven as an effective method for treating a wide variety of orthodontic issues.

The advantages that set Invisalign apart are:

  • The ability to remove the mouthpiece for eating, sleeping, and brushing teeth
  • It is comprised of smooth plastic rather than sharp metal
  • Does not require any dietary restrictions
  • A nearly invisible appearance
  • Requires fewer office visits

    How Does Invisalign Work?

    The Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear aligners crafted specifically for your child’s mouth to gradually move the teeth into their proper place. The aligners are made of a material that is gentle and causes very little discomfort, while still effective in firmly shifting and keeping the teeth in place. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately a week before advancing to the next, continually moving towards the final goal of a confident smile.

    Dr. J Shahangian understands that children, especially teenagers, are typically not nearly as worried about straightening their teeth as they are with feeling confident in their smile. His one-of-a-kind teen clinic is designed to meet the specific needs -- both orthodontically and emotionally -- of this age group. Invisalign may be the answer you’ve been searching for!
