What is Invisalign® Teen?
Invisalign Teen is a clear aligner system to straighten the teeth that is specifically made for teenagers. These aligners are clear, so most people won’t even notice you are wearing them. Plus, they are custom made to fit your mouth, so they are comfortable and easy to wear. Aligners are made up of a clear, smooth plastic called SmartTrack® material, and they are virtually invisible when worn. Unlike traditional metal braces, you will be confident in showing off your smile while using Invisalign Teen!
With the Invisalign Teen system, you can achieve the straight, beautiful smile that you have always wanted! Our friendly and professional team will work with you to create a personalized Invisalign plan to ensure that you achieve the results you deserve.
The Invisalign® Teen Treatment Process
During the treatment process, you will wear a set of custom aligners for about 1-2 weeks, after which a new set will need to be worn. Each series of new aligners will gently move your teeth until they have reached their final position. Invisalign treatment time will vary from patient to patient but usually lasts between 6-15 months.
What Can I Eat with Invisalign® Teen Aligners?
You may have heard from friends or family members that there are many different restrictions on what you can eat when it comes to traditional braces. With Invisalign Teen, this is not the case! These aligners are removable, which means that you can take them out when you are eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing. Teens can feel free to eat whatever they want after they have removed their aligners, making mealtime easy! Just remembers to brush your teeth after eating and remember to put your aligners back in.
What Happens If I Lose my Aligners?
We understand that sometimes accidents happen, and at some point, you may misplace your aligners. If this happens, you can easily get a replacement by contacting our office and letting us know. In some cases, if you were close to swapping out those aligners for the next set, we may just move on to the next set and not worry about the replacement.
