The modern approach to orthodontics
Knowledgeable & Experienced Invisalign Teeth Straightening
Invisalign is the modern system for teeth straightening using clear plastic trays, called aligners, that fit closely over teeth to move them gradually into place. Many thousands of teens have achieved beautiful, straight smiles through Invisalign treatment. A teen can begin with Invisalign treatment once his or her adult teeth are fully erupted, around the age of 12.
Dr. Yao is an expert Invisalign practitioner, with more than 1600 cases completed. He is a Top 1% Invisalign Elite Preferred Provider. He considers Invisalign not merely to be an alternative for traditional braces, but the preferred method. The results he has been able to get with Invisalign for teens have been spectacular, and with greater ease for the teen. 80%+ are candidates for Invisalign with Dr. Yao.
The Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Virtually invisible - Only you and your teen will know he or she has braces on.
Teens can eat whatever they want - As Invisalign aligners are removable, your teen can eat whatever foods they enjoy. This includes all the food usually on the list of prohibited items: popcorn, corn chips, bagels, gum, corn on the cob, nuts, carrots, whole apples and pears, pizza crust, pretzels and more!
Easier teeth cleaning for better oral health - Food won’t get trapped in brackets and wires and your teen can keep their teeth and gums completely healthy with brushing and flossing, simply by removing their Invisalign aligners.
Less doctor visits - No fixed metal brackets or wires to adjust means you’ll spend less time visiting the doctor. Instead of visiting your doctor every two weeks your teen just needs to go in for a checkup every 6 weeks.
Less likely to irritate - No sharp metal brackets or wires that can irritate cheeks or gums.
Invisalign Teen includes a couple of convenient extras: a compliance tracking device on the aligners and six extra replacement aligners!
