    Invisalign Teen for Orthodontic Treatment

    At Mehdi Fotovat, DDS, we are big fans of Invisalign Teen for orthodontic treatment. Invisalign’s advanced technology allows for precision in creating Picture Perfect Smiles and confidence boosting results. Read our top reasons why we think it’s a great way to get a healthy, beautiful smile that will last a lifetime:

    1) Keep Smiling While Straightening
    Invisalign is a great option for teens who don’t want to put their life on pause to get the smile of their dreams. Invisalign’s custom fitted aligners feature a slim and comfortable design, are virtually invisible, and can be removed for 1-2 hours a day without impacting results. That means less orthodontic related sports emergencies, more self-assurance in front of the camera, and more confidence to keep smiling during treatment.

     2) Straighten Without Interruption
    Since you don’t have to worry about brackets and wires with Invisalign, teens won’t have to make adjustments to their daily routines. It’s easy to keep up with daily brushing and flossing. They can also continue to eat their favorite foods without restriction. No broken brackets or sharp wires mean virtually no unexpected emergency trips to Dr. Fotovat’s office; saving you time and your teen discomfort. Overall, Invisalign treatment requires fewer trips to the office and may lead to shorter treatment time.

    3) Look Forward to a Beautiful Smile for Life
    Teenage years are the optimal time to rectify orthodontic problems because teens’ bones are still growing. Dr. Fotovat can use this growth to help guide teeth to a healthier position for better future oral health. This frequently leads to less time in treatment and is less costly when compared to correction of problems that have been allowed to progress into adulthood.
    Invisalign aligners will do most of the work, but it’s very important for your teen to do their part, too. While Invisalign can be removed for a couple of hours, it’s critical that your teen wear their aligners for the recommended 22 hours per day. This will ensure that their treatment stays on track.

    The Top Reasons Why You Should Only Seek Invisalign Treatment with an Orthodontist

    The Top Reasons Why You Should Only Seek Invisalign Treatment with an Orthodontist

    Invisalign is a front-runner for straightening teeth these days. You can enjoy virtually invisible teeth-straightening while continuing to eat the foods you enjoy, brush and floss your teeth normally for better oral health, and minimize office visits. The choice is clear! You might wonder why it’s necessary to see Dr. Fotovat for your Invisalign treatment. Here are the top reasons why only an orthodontist should treat you:

    Do it once and do it right.
    Dr. Fotovat’s goals are straight teeth and a healthy bite. We ensure that the teeth, upper and lower jaws, gums, and facial muscles are positioned so that you can bite, chew, and speak well. Without taking these components into consideration, problems can arise, such as issues with the jaw joint (TMJ), headaches, excessive wearing or chipping of the teeth, premature tooth loss, and gum problems.

    Dr. Fotovat will identify the cause of the problem and then solve it.
    You may see crooked or gapped teeth. We see the cause of the problem. Orthodontists use their education, experience, and expertise to delve deep to discover the root of the issue and solve it in a way that is healthy and sustainable; giving you a Picture Perfect Smile that will last a lifetime.

    Orthodontics goes beyond your teeth.
    Orthodontists study facial esthetics and understand how tooth movement can change your facial profile, smile line, and general appearance. Dr. Fotovat and his team understand how it relates to the face and future growth changes. We take a comprehensive, whole-patient approach to your treatment so that your overall appearance is considered along with your smile.

    Orthodontists are specialists.
    After dental school education, orthodontists devote an additional 2-3 years to the study of only orthodontics. Dr. Fotovat practices orthodontics exclusively and is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. He is a trained expert who cares about making sure you get a healthy Picture Perfect Smile!

    A Picture Perfect Smile Faster with Fewer Appointments

    At Mehdi Fotovat, DDS we’re making orthodontic treatment as convenient and hassle-free as possible. We know your life is busy and we want to take away the stress of getting a healthy, Picture Perfect Smile for your family! You can now use your phone to manage orthodontic treatment with Dental Monitoring. We can convert a patient’s (or parent’s) phone into a remote monitoring device that helps us straighten smiles faster with fewer in-office appointments.

    How does Dental Monitoring work?
    If you’re pursuing Invisalign treatment with our practice, the Dental Monitoring app will help us guide your pathway to a Picture Perfect Smile. We will set up a “Virtual Appointment” Schedule; you’ll get a notification from us on your personalized app, which will walk you through taking a series of pictures of your current smile. Dental Monitoring’s software automatically enhances and sequences your pictures so that Dr. Fotovat can track the treatment progress. These virtual appointments take less time than a trip to the office!

    Why is Dental Monitoring so great? 

    • Visit the office less often – our patients have busy schedules and we know it’s hard to fit in appointments between school, work, sports, and other activities. Dental Monitoring allows us to monitor your progress remotely, which means fewer in-office appointments.
    • No missing appointments – decide when it’s most convenient to have your appointments! The Dental Monitoring app will send you reminders on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to take pictures – a virtual appointment that fits your schedule.
    • Better precision – we can make real-time adjustments better than we could if we didn’t see you for a whole month since we’re getting more frequent data about your progress with the pictures you send us. Dr. Fotovat can track oral hygiene level, aligner fit, tooth movement, or attachment issues that will allow him to make recommendations in real time.
    • Treatment times are faster – the digital images you send us allow Dr. Fotovat to detect issues faster and see your treatment progress more frequently. That means your in-person appointments are so much more efficient. Efficiency = faster treatment times!

    More communication means better compliance and improved confidence – using Dental Monitoring allows our patients to take an active role in achieving the Picture Perfect Smile of their dreams. Getting more frequent feedback from Dr. Fotovat improves confidence and keeps your treatment on the right track.

    We live our lives virtually, so why would you trust your orthodontic care to someone who isn’t embracing technological advances? Dr. Fotovat is a board certified, Invisalign Diamond+ Provider orthodontist helping to pioneer this awesome technology.

    There’s no time like the present. If you’ve been thinking about orthodontics for yourself or anyone in your family, we encourage you to enjoy a complimentary consultation with us.
