Invisalign for TeensIf you or your teenager are looking to straighten your teeth but aren’t interested in braces, you should consider Invisalign clear aligners.
What is Invisalign?
It may look like a small piece of plastic, but every Invisalign clear aligner is made with precision just for you. It starts with a simple scan, which we’ll use to give you a glimpse of your future smile. With our cutting-edge software, we create a digital roadmap where every shift in your teeth is planned from beginning to end. We calculate just the right amount of force needed to move your teeth, so there’s no unnecessary pain. Then we take that digital roadmap and bring it to life, using 3D printing to create your custom aligners.
How does Invisalign differ from other brands?
The big difference between Invisalign and other clear aligners is in the details. For example, we precision trim the aligner so that it doesn’t cut your gums like other brands. Also, the only Invisalign clear aligners are made with smart track material developed by biomechanical engineers. That means that our material is more flexible for greater comfort. It hugs your teeth closer for a better fit, more accurate movements, and in the end a better smile.
How does Invisalign compare to braces?
Invisalign treatment costs about the same as braces, and many dental insurance plans will cover it. Without the tightening or cranking of brackets and wires, you can expect a more comfortable Invisalign treatment experience than with braces.
You can also play any sport with Invisalign clear aligners without worrying about getting hit in the mouth, suffering broken wires, or having to go to emergency orthodontic appointments. Since you take out your aligners while eating, there are no food restrictions with Invisalign treatment. You can eat anything you want.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Compared to braces, Invisalign treatment can save you time with fewer orthodontic appointments and the technology can help you get your new smile up to 50% faster. However, for Invisalign clear aligners to work as fast as possible, you need to wear them between 20 and 22 hours a day. Also, each aligner has an indicator dot on it to show whether or not you’ve been wearing it. If you lose them, the Invisalign treatment for teens comes up with up to six free replacements.
Treatment with Invisalign clear aligners finished 5 months faster on average than treatment with braces. This is because we provide weekly aligner changes, compared with two-week aligner changes of other brands.
Invisalign is the only clear aligner that’s shaped 5 million smiles. Each treatment has taught us how to better improve the system, helping to reduce treatment times to as little as three months. With 20 years of research behind us, we are moving confidently into the future to make our system and our patients’ smiles even better. Invisalign can fix your teeth, whether the problem is simple or complex.
