For our Invisalign patients: Our Dental Monitoring and Invisalign Virtual Care programs combined with our team’s extensive Invisalign expertise enable us to monitor the fit of your Invisalign aligners remotely. These programs analyze images of your teeth to help us compare your current alignment to the expected position of your teeth, evaluate your bite, and give you regular feedback about whether you are ready to move forward in your aligner sequence. If you have not yet signed up for our virtual monitoring programs, please text us at (415) 459-8006 with the best email and mobile number to get you started. If you are nearing the end of your final few aligners, please email updated photos https://marinortho.com/taking-photos-your-teeth-tutorial/ to [email protected].

For our braces patients: The personalized care and attention our practice has always been known for is now available to you at home. All our doctors are available via email to evaluate how your tooth alignment and bite correction look and how you’re doing with your rubber bands. If you’re a patient between Phase I and Phase II or done with treatment, we’d be happy to evaluate how your adult teeth are coming in and/or how your retainers are fitting. Finally, if you are one of our youngest patients with a palatal expander, we’d love to see how the turning is coming along!

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that every child is screened by an orthodontist at age 7. For children who have significant jaw discrepancies or severe crowding, early treatment is the only way to achieve an optimal final result long term and to minimize the need for jaw surgery.
In our office, we prefer to offer early treatment to those patients who have a functional need for it, unless the family has a specific aesthetic concern they feel cannot wait. For many years, the total percentage of patients in our office undergoing early intervention has hovered at a low 20 to 30% of our total patients. While many young patients think braces are fun, they are one more thing to brush around!
