For over two decades, Invisalign has been a popular orthodontic solution for adults seeking a more “discrete” treatment option. Custom made to fit your teeth, Invisalign consists of a series of clear aligners that move your teeth over time. While Invisalign’s initial appeal was to adults, teenagers soon began to show interest in the option because of its aesthetic advantage over traditional braces. Hence, Invisalign Teen was created to fit the specific needs of teenagers and help them achieve a straight, healthy smiles.
Invisalign Teen addresses common orthodontic problems like:
- Crowded or Overly Spaced Teeth
- Cross Bites & Over Bites
- Under Bites & More
With Invisalign Teen, self-conscious teens that want to avoid metal braces won’t dread their school pictures or posting photos to Facebook. It’s a simple, low maintenance, and effective treatment that is easy for your teen to adjust to.
How Invisalign Teen Works
Invisalign Teen treatment consists of a series clear plastic aligners made specifically for your teen’s orthodontic needs. The aligners are equipped with blue-to-clear color changing technology to help your teen know how long that aligner has been worn. Each aligner is worn for 1-2 weeks before being returned to our office and replaced with the next set of aligners in your series. These aligners are to be removed only to eat, drink, brush and floss or to clean them. This system comes with, on average, between 18 and 30 aligners as well as six free replacement aligners in case one is lost or breaks. Your teen will only have to come into our orthodontics offices every 8-10 weeks.
