Invisalign Teen provides a solution for nearly all dental conditions requiring straightened teeth, including an underbite, overbite, or crossbite. And with this method of teeth straightening, your teen will enjoy multiple advantages not available with metal bands and brackets.
Many malocclusions are the result of overcrowding. A consultation with one of our orthodontists will identify the specific needs for your teen.
Invisalign Teen is ideal for your child because the aligners are:
Clear – This means your child can undergo the teeth straightening procedure with confidence knowing the braces are virtually undetectable. There will be no embarrassing wires, brackets, or bands required with wearing metal braces.
Comfortable – The aligners are strong enough to gently shift teeth, but since there is no metal involved, soft oral tissue does not suffer from abrasions or being poked with a broken wire.
Removable – Your teen can continue to enjoy all the foods they love. The aligners are removed for meals and snacking, so unlike with metal braces, your teen will have no food restrictions. Since the aligners are removable, your teen can also maintain a daily oral hygiene regimen of brushing and flossing without obstruction. Your family dentist will be able to provide a thorough cleaning and exam every six months throughout orthodontic treatment as well.
Convenient – Every two weeks your teen will replace the aligner with the next one in the series so as to keep the straightening process on track. Visits to the orthodontist will not require the uncomfortable tightening of wires needed to keep metal braces moving. If your teen should lose or accidentally dispose of an aligner, simply contact your orthodontist. Invisalign Teen recognizes this might occur and includes a program for replacing up to six aligners at no extra charge over the life of the treatment plan.
Unobtrusive – Your teen can continue to play sports or pursue playing a musical instrument without interference from Invisalign. The aligners are to be worn twenty to twenty-two hours every day to keep the teeth straightening process on track. Progress will become evident within a few months. As the underbite is corrected, your teen will receive more than a new smile, for straight teeth are easier to keep clean and less likely to develop decay.
