The advanced technology of the Invisalign Teen™ allows a clear, plastic device to achieve the same results as the old-fashioned braces, but without metal bands, brackets or wires. Among other issues, the Invisalign spacers correct crowded teeth, wide spaces, cross bite, overbite and underbite.invisalign braces - orthodontics

“Clearly different” – “Clearly undetectable” – “Clearly Awesome!” That’s what teens are saying about the Invisalign aligners, a totally different and “awesome” way to straighten teeth.

Custom designed especially for you, Invisalign Teen™ straighten your teeth with a series of custom-made clear aligners that are almost totally undetectable, allowing you to keep doing the things you want – playing sports, singing, playing in the band, or hanging out with friends. They will not interfere with your social life in any way, and you can even have pictures taken, confident that your smile and not your braces will be what people are looking at. Imagine getting your Senior Pictures taken without the embarrassment of the “metal mouth” smile you see in those old yearbooks.

Since you can remove the Invisalign aligners there are no forbidden foods. You can eat pizza and caramel apples, and even chew gum without the worry of things getting stuck between the wires and the brackets. You also don’t have the pain of wires poking you in the cheeks, rubber bands popping in your mouth, or days of discomfort after your braces have been tightened.

There are so many advantages to the Invisalign Teen™ aligners it’s almost impossible to think of going to metal braces. You may experience a bit of discomfort during the initial period, but as you get used to them they are virtually painless. Invisalign moves your teeth in such small increments you won’t even know they are moving at all, and you don’t have to wait for the braces to be taken off to see results. Many people have remarked that they can see changes after only a few weeks.

As your appearance and smile improves, so will your confidence. A whole new world, and a new attitude, will open up for you.

Your parents will be happy to hear there are other advantages with the Invisalign Teen™ device not available in the “adult” version (Invisalign is also for adults!). The investment they make with their hard-earned money has some safeguards “built in.”
As part of the Invisalign Teen™ device a blue button has been added that will allow the dentist to track if you are wearing the spacers and complying with the treatment laid out. The dot is designed to fade to clear over a two-week period. If worn properly for 20-22 hours per day, taken out only for eating, brushing, playing sports or attending special events, you will accomplish what you have set out to do. If you aren’t wearing them like you should, your dentist will know.

Since Invisalign Teen™ allows for the growth of permanent teeth (secondary molars and first and second bicuspids) you don’t have to put off treatment until all their teeth are in.

As a bonus, you don’t have to worry about losing an aligner. Free replacements of up to six spacers are included in your treatment schedule…just in case.

With Invisalign Teen™ there is also the advantage of more time to do everything. What would have taken two years with traditional braces can often be accomplished in far less time with the clear spacers, and with fewer office visits to disrupt your schedule.

Invisalign Teen™ is fairly new technology, but it is not without tried and tested results. Over a million people worldwide have been equipped with Invisalign and the vast majority of them have been extremely pleased with the ease, comfort and results. Many of your favorite movie and television stars have worn, or are currently wearing, Invisalign. Some even wear them while they are working – bet you didn’t know that!

Our dentists have performed over 50,000 cosmetic procedures and are Certified Invisalign Providers – for both teens and adults. In addition to 10 years of experience in traditional orthodontics, and four years of advanced training experience in aesthetics, TMJ and bite correction, they can provide an assortment of treatments to correct your teeth, gums and jaw structure, including conventional braces treatment, if that is what is needed.

Only a certified professional can determine if the Invisalign Teen™ is right for you. Although not everyone is a candidate, the majority of people are, and only a consultation with a certified Invisalign professional will be able to determine the best course of treatment for your particular problem.

After your dentist examines you, he will sit down with you and your parents to discuss possible courses of treatment. The staff will take their time and answer any questions you may have.
