Invisalign for Teens

Share

Teens have options! We know that each of our patients is unique. No two patients live the same lifestyle or share the same preferences; that’s why it’s our goal to provide you with an option that suits you.

We offer Invisalign® Teen for young adults who want to straighten their teeth and improve their bite while looking their best. Invisalign technology is the invisible force that works gently, but persistently, to align teeth for a healthy and radiant smile.

Why Invisalign Teen?

Here’s how hundreds of thousands of teenagers are benefiting from Invisalign Teen:

Invisalign Teen is practically invisible.

Yes, Invis-align is invis-able. These high-technology clear aligners are made of clear, BPA-free, flexible plastic. Invisalign Teen is an ideal option for teens who don’t want anyone to know they’re undergoing treatment. With any social commitment you have, whether it be a sports game, speech, meeting, graduation ceremony or school pictures, you can smile confidently knowing that your treatment is undetectable!

Invisalign Teen is removable.

Invisalign Teen is a practical choice for teenagers who prefer the convenience to temporarily remove their orthodontic treatment to brush, floss, eat, or drink. This means no dietary restrictions! Remove your clear aligners, and eat whatever your heart desires. (Just be sure to rinse them and place them back in your mouth once you’re done feasting.)

Invisalign Teen is comfortable.

Made from soft, flexible, sturdy material, Invisalign Teen clear aligners are designed for maximum comfort. Without metal brackets and wires, your clear aligners won’t irritate your teeth or gums. After the first week or so of wearing your aligners, you won’t even notice you’re wearing them!

Conditions Treated with Invisalign Teen

Invisalign technology is modern and highly effective! Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions, including the following:

  • Overbite

  • Underbite

  • Crossbite

  • Gapped teeth

  • Open bite

  • Crowded teeth

  • Crooked teeth

How long does Invisalign take?

The average case with Invisalign will take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to complete. To experience the most effective and efficient treatment period, you must wear your aligners as instructed. You will keep your aligners in place for at least 20 to 22 hours a day. (If you fail to wear your aligners as your orthodontist instructs, your treatment period will be longer.)

How does Invisalign Teen Work?

Invisalign Teen works in a series of custom-designed clear aligners. Using iTero scanning technology, our orthodontists will make mess-free, precise 3-D impressions of your teeth to begin the Invisalign process. These impressions will be used to create your custom treatment plan with Invisalign Teen.

You will receive a set of custom aligners—one aligner to fit your top teeth and one to fit your bottom teeth. Every 1 to 2 weeks, you’ll switch out your set of aligners to wear a new set, and every 10 to 12 weeks, you’ll visit our office to receive new sets of aligners. Each set of Invisalign Teen aligners is custom-made to shift your teeth closer to the ideal alignment. You’ll wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.

With every new set of aligners, you’re one step closer to your ideal smile!

Special Features of Invisalign Teen

One of the Invisalign Teen benefits is the ability to remove your aligners throughout the day, but this also means that you’re responsible for the progress of your treatment.

For you to reap the full benefits of Invisalign, you must wear your aligners as instructed. Invisalign Teen comes with “compliance indicators” built into the aligners. These compliance strips allow you, your orthodontist, and your parents to see how frequently you’re wearing your aligners.

Invisalign for teens also includes “eruption tabs” that hold space open in your mouth to allow new, undeveloped molars to emerge.

Invisalign technology is fast, comfortable, effective, and extremely convenient for teens! If you’re a teen seeking Invisalign near you, or you’re a parent considering Invisalign for your teen, we want to hear from you.

With us, Invisalign and braces are similarly priced! Most patients assume Invisalign is the more expensive treatment option, but we’re able to offer Invisalign and braces at low prices.

We encourage you to reach out to us at any of our locations in Wetumpka, Millbrook, or Montgomery, AL. We want to answer all of your questions and help you determine whether Invisalign is right for you.
