When a child has a short lower jaw, and has active growth potential, Orthodontists use Functional Appliance to manipulate jaw growth to correct the short jaw.
Invisalign Teen with Mandibular Advancement Feature
combines the science of Functional Appliances
for orofacial orthopedic correction with modern aligner therapy
of clear, removable aligners to move teeth at the same time
This is Invisalign’s latest contribution to the evolution of the modern braces system.Traditional removable Functional Appliances have been bulky, awkward appliances with limited ability to move teeth at the same time as redirecting jaw growth for orofacial orthopedic correction. Often treatment is split into 2 parts and take longer.Traditional fixed Functional Appliances do not give patients the freedom to remove the appliance for brushing teeth and eating is often affected. Plus, there is a high risk of breakages and dislodgement. If you think your child’s compliance with Invisalign Aligner wear might be iffy, then fixed braces (though bulkier) maybe more practical.
