Why Invisalign for teens?
With Invisalign clear aligners, teens feel empowered to face life with confidence. These aligners are virtually undetectable, so no one will know you’re undergoing treatment. Fall in love with your smile, during and after treatment.
Invisalign aligners are removable, which means no food is off-limits and keeping your teeth clean is simple. Teens can remove their clear aligners to eat, drink, brush and floss.
No Disruptions to Your Lifestyle
Remove your aligners for special occasions—as long as you keep them in place for at least 22 hours a day—and place them back in your mouth when you’re done.
Conditions Treated with Invisalign Teen
- Crooked Teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Malocclusions (overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, midline misalignment)
- Gapped teeth or teeth spacing
We often use Invisalign attachments during the Invisalign process to increase the Invisalign effectiveness. Invisalign attachments are tiny, tooth-colored shapes bonded to individual teeth to reduce the amount of space between the tooth and the aligner. This promotes quicker movement for teeth that require an extra nudge.
Teenage Invisalign Costs
How much does Invisalign for teens cost? Teenage Invisalign costs a reasonable amount with us! We’re proud to offer affordable payment plans to help you cover the cost of your teen’s Invisalign treatment. Choose from a variety of interest-free payment plans, and if you have orthodontic insurance coverage, we’ll file your claims for you to ensure that you receive the maximum benefit.
How does Invisalign Teen work?
Using iTero scanning technology, Dr. Saxe will make quick, precise 3-D impressions of your child’s teeth to begin the Invisalign process. These impressions will be used to create their custom treatment plan with Invisalign Teen.
You’ll receive a set of custom aligners: one for your top teeth and one for your bottom teeth. Every 1 to 2 weeks, your teen will switch out his or her current 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 teeth closer to the ideal alignment. Your teen will wear aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.
With every new set of aligners, your teen is one step closer to a beautiful, healthy smile!
