Invisalign Teen treatment gives your teenager a great smile without metal braces--to help them feel confident in their smiles and themselves.
The Invisalign Teen system is a series of customized, virtually invisible aligners. The aligners gradually move teeth to help your teen achieve a great smile and proper bite.
On average treatment takes about a year, because aligners are removable. Your teen can easily brush and floss for proper hygiene.
By giving teens a better smile without metal braces, the Invisalign system helps them have the confidence to be at their best.
Is Invisalign teen treatment as effective as traditional braces?
In the hands of a skilled practitioner and when worn according to your doctor's recommendation, Invisalign teen can be as effective as traditional braces for many types of treatment.
What is the difference between the adult Invisalign appliance and the Invisalign teen appliance?
Although many of the benefits are the same, Invisalign Teen is differentiated by several new clinical features, such as compliance indicators and free replacement aligners.
How will I know how often my child is wearing his aligners?
The compliance indicators located on the upper aligner can estimate the approximate amount of time your teen spends wearing his aligners. The indicators are designed to fade from blue to clear as a gauge of approximate wear time, so you can monitor your child's compliance easily.
What happens if my child loses one of both of her aligners?
Should this occur, simply inform your child's doctor right away. The Doctor may tell your child to start wearing her previous set, or the next set of aligners immediately. The doctor will the order your teen a new set of aligners to replace the ones that were lost. Invisalign Teen treatment includes up to six individual replacement aligners at no charge.
How much does Invisalign Teen cost?
The cost of Invisalign Teen is often comparable to that of braces and is typically covered by insurance to the same extent that other orthodontic appliances are. In addition, doctors offer a variety of flexible payment options to fit any family's budget.
How much time will my child spend at the orthodontist's office?
Invisalign requires very little manipulation or maintenance by the doctor in order to be effective, so your child will spend limited time visiting the office. Better yet, no "emergency" visits for broken or loose brackets and wires.
Will it be easy for my child to keep his teeth clean with Invisalign?
Yes! Invisalign Teen allows your child to remove the aligners for eating and brushing. so it is easier to maintain proper oral hygiene with our product than it is with traditional metal braces. Your teen can brush and floss normally, which can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
What are some other advantages of Invisalign teen treatment over traditional braces?
Wearing aligners makes an active lifestyle simpler. Since the device is removable, it's easy for your child to play sports or an instrument, as any teenager would-even one who is not in orthodontic treatment. Also, because the aligners are made of smooth plastic, there are no metal wires or brackets to irritate cheeks or gums.
