Invisalign® Teen aligners are a discreet alternative to traditional braces, making it a convenient option to achieve an improved smile for your teenager without going through braces.
The aligners are removable and made of a durable, smooth, clear plastic. This means orthodontic treatment can be comfortable and convenient for your lifestyle—there are no food or drink restrictions, brushing and flossing can be done normally, and there are no wires or brackets to deal with.
You’ll get a set of custom-made aligners to fit only you, and each aligner will be worn for one week before switching to the next aligner in the sequence. Every two months or so, the orthodontist will see you for a progress evaluation until your treatment is complete.
Invisalign Teen can treat a wide variety of dental and orthodontic issues so treatment length can vary from person to person, but it is typically comparable to treatment length with traditional braces.Book An Appointment Virtual Smile Assessment
Invisalign® aligners are an alternative to traditional braces. They’re virtually invisible, meaning you can straighten your teeth with hardly anyone knowing!
You’re never too old for orthodontic treatment. But due to an aversion to wearing braces, many adults remain unhappy with their teeth.
With Invisalign®’s clear, smooth plastic aligners, most people won’t even realize you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment! Customized to your teeth, the Invisalign® clear aligners are comfortable to wear and there’s no need to worry about brackets or wires. Unlike braces, you can remove your aligners to brush your teeth, floss, and eat.
Invisalign treatments require fewer appointments because you do not have to have wires changed regularly. Appointments are usually scheduled every 2-4 months between each appointment.
Invisalign® will increase your overall health and happiness, while allowing you to maintain regular oral hygiene.
Find out if Invisalign® is right for you by learning about what’s involved in the process.
Our orthodontist will complete a comprehensive orthodontic examination to determine whether Invisalign® is right for you. You can even view your own virtual treatment plan to see the end result before starting treatment!
Now that you’ve decided to get Invisalign®, our team at City Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry will take x-rays, pictures, and digital impressions of your teeth using an iTero scanner. Our orthodontist will use this information to develop a detailed treatment plan, including each individual tooth movement and the approximate treatment length. A 3D virtual representation of your treatment plan will show you how your teeth are expected to move at each stage of the treatment.
A set of custom-made aligners will be fabricated for you. When you come in for the delivery appointment, our team will show you how to wear the aligners and how to care for them. As each aligner will be worn for one week, our team will give you a series of the trays to keep at home where you can switch the old tray for the new.
As you switch aligners each week, your teeth will gradually shift into the correct position. Every two months or so, our orthodontist will conduct a progress assessment to ensure you are on the right track to achieving your new smile. Our orthodontist will also give you additional aligners at this time as needed.
Congratulations on achieving your goal of a beautiful new smile! In order to keep your teeth in place, our orthodontist will design a set of retainers for you. By wearing them as recommended, your teeth will stay in their correct positions.
