Invisalign® Teen

Top Invisalign® provider

Your teen wants to have straight teeth, but they don’t want to deal with the complications of metal braces, such as avoiding certain foods and braces showing in all their selfies. Consider Invisalign Teen as an effective solution. Invisalign uses clear aligners that you can remove during meals to straighten teeth gradually. They fit perfectly within an active teen’s lifestyle. Invisalign Teen offers many benefits parents can appreciate as well.

How Invisalign for teens works

Invisalign works differently from traditional braces, and many parents appreciate those differences. The Invisalign Teen process begins with in-depth measurements and imaging of the mouth to build a set of aligners that will address your teen’s orthodontic issues. Then we bond small attachments to some of the teeth to help keep the Invisalign in place. We give the teen several months’ worth of aligners, which they can change weekly.

Invisalign Teen can work faster than traditional braces, and your teen won’t have to come into the office for regular monthly adjustments. It may be tempting for your teen to take their aligners out frequently, but they should only remove them when they eat and brush their teeth. The rest of the time, they should wear the aligners for optimal results.

Teens can eat whatever they want since they can take the aligners out for meals. While they should strive to take care of and keep track of their aligners, we understand accidents can happen. Just call us if they misplace an aligner or get mixed up about when to change them.

Is your teen a good fit for Invisalign?

Invisalign treatment is one of the numerous treatment options for teens. Is it a good fit for your teen? The best candidates for this plan:

  • Is your teen responsible? Getting Invisalign demands a high level of responsibility. Your teen must keep track of their aligners when they take them off to eat and put them back in after they finish. Teens must remember to replace their aligners once a week, and they should carry a case with them to store the aligners when they drink anything other than water.
  • What orthodontic issues does your teen have? Invisalign works best to fix slight overcrowding in the mouth, gaps between some teeth, slight over- or underbites, and crooked teeth. Other treatment methods, such as braces, may be more effective in resolving serious problems.
