Invisalign-MA is Invisalign with Mandibular Advancement Feature. It combines the science of Functional Appliances for orofacial orthopedic correction with modern Invisalign removable aligners to move teeth and guide jaw growth at the same time. This is Invisalign’s latest contribution to the evolution of the modern braces system.
When a child has a short lower jaw and has active growth potential, Orthodontists use Functional Appliances to manipulate jaw growth to correct the short jaw. Now we use Invisalign-MA!
Traditional removable Functional Appliances have been bulky, awkward appliances with limited ability to move teeth and redirect jaw growth at the same time. Treatment is often split into 2 parts and takes a longer time to complete. Invisalign MA allows teeth alignment as well as bite jumps at the same time.
Traditional fixed Functional Appliances do not give patients the freedom to remove the appliance for brushing their teeth and eating is often affected. Plus, there is a high risk of breakages and dislodgement. Using Invisalign-MA, aligners are thin, comfortable and removable. There are no metal parts and no thick bulky plastic. Your child changes to a new, clear aligner set every week for additional comfort and assurance.
