The result of Invisalign treatment is a winning smile. Teenagers are typically sensitive about the way they look. Imagine gazing at your face in the mirror and seeing a perfect set of straight white teeth.
With its innovative SmartTrack® material, Invisalign corrects your teenager’s bite faster than traditional metal braces. A series of clear Invisalign aligners gradually guide the patient’s teeth to the proper alignment. Invisalign is virtually invisible and there are no wires that need tightening. This means a lot less time spent in the dentist’s chair and more freedom to do what you want to do.
Fixing Teen Smiles with Invisalign
Almost all the issues that are treated with metal braces can also be corrected with Invisalign. This includes:
- Overbite – the upper teeth close over the lower teeth
- Underbite – the lower teeth bite over the upper teeth
- Crossbite – the jaw isn’t in alignment
- Open bite – the top and bottom teeth don’t meet
- Gapped teeth – there are large spaces between teeth
- Crowded teeth – there isn’t enough room to naturally fit all your teeth
Convenient Professional Care
The Invisalign process begins during your free consultation when we create a 3-D image of your mouth using our Itero scanning system. Dr. Rosie will employ this information to create your individualized treatment plan. Then we share your treatment plan with the technicians at Invisalign and they use the information to fabricate your custom aligners.
A wonderful feature of our advanced technology is that it allows us to provide you with an image of what your new Invisalign smile will look like before your treatment even begins.
Enjoy More Freedom
The Invisalign clear aligners are easy to apply and easy to remove. You take them out for eating, so they won’t restrict your diet the way metal braces do.
It’s recommended to wear Invisalign between 20 and 22 hours each day. They can be removed for the remaining two to four hours. This provides flexibility for users.
For example, if your teen has athletic practice after school, no problem. They can simply remove their Invisalign tray for the duration of practice. Just store your trays in a clean safe place and put them back in afterward.
The Faded Blue Dots Tell Us Your Teen is Being Responsible
Invisalign aligners must be worn consistently in order to work. Parents aren’t always around to make sure their teen remembers to put their aligners back on after eating, but now there’s a solution.
Invisalign aligners contain a series of blue dots that gradually fade as you wear them. That way, parents and orthodontists can make sure teens are wearing Invisalign for the recommended amount of time.
Fewer Office Visits with Invisalign
During the course of their Invisalign treatment, the patient typically visits Dr. Rosie once every eight weeks. This allows her to monitor the progress of your bite, make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan, and provide you with a new batch of aligner trays.
Invisalign has no wires, so they never need tightening. And you won’t have to worry about rushing to the dentist office to treat emergencies such as detached brackets or broken wires. This means your teen can enjoy more time spent on important activities and less time worrying about their smile.
Living Life on Your Terms
Your teen’s new Invisalign smile doesn’t just look fantastic — it’s also an investment in a healthier smile. It’s time for your teen to get the beautiful smile they’ve been dreaming about. Thanks to Invisalign, they won’t have to deal with the hassles and inconvenience of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign will boost your teen’s confidence at a time in their life when it’s natural for them to feel a little bit self-conscious. This is an invaluable gift that you can provide.
