For ultimate camouflage, tray or aligner systems are a modern straightening method. Designed with sophisticated software and 3D digital models of your child or teen’s teeth, a series of clear plastic trays produce the straightening results. Medical-grade plastic without wires, metal, springs, or rubber bands gently move your child’s teeth into place. Gradual pressure on specific teeth with each aligner means less discomfort and in many cases, shortened treatment times. Our team provides your child or teen with several sets of aligners at a time, allowing you to change to a new set every two weeks from the comfort of your home.
Removable trays can be set aside for short periods allowing normal eating and cleaning. Enjoying an apple or sticky foods without the intrusion of brackets and wires works well for many children. And the smooth plastic surface offers a comfort level to the tongue and cheeks unequaled by other forms of straightening.
But, a system that can be taken out and set aside may be forgotten. Committing to consistent wear, at least 22 hours each day, helps ensure the success of your child’s treatment.

Something For Everyone
While aligner treatment works for 90% of straightening cases, some tooth movements may not be possible. Or you may prefer the security of fixed braces, preventing the chance your child might accidentally throw them away at lunch. Dr. Chang and Dr. Phan can help you and your child decide if Invisalign is right for your child or teen.
