Invisalign Teen

With a whirlwind of important activities like school, sports, dating, and hanging out with friends, orthodontic care is usually not at the top of your teen’s to-do-list. However, a straight, even, and beautiful smile is always on the list of must have’s. So what is a teen to do? Luckily, Invisalign Teen® can straighten your teen’s teeth without metal wires and brackets getting in the way of their hectic lifestyle. That means that teens are free to enjoy the things that really matter!

If your teenager is constantly on the go, Invisalign Teen offers many amazing alternatives to keep up with their jam-packed schedule. Additionally, aligners can be removed for brushing, eating, playing sports, playing an instrument, and even participating in special events (like prom or yearbook pictures). Plus, patients with Invisalign Teen usually need fewer office visits than patients with traditional braces.

How Does Invisalign Teen Treatment Work For Your Teen?

Step One: Call our offices and schedule your no-obligation Invisalign Teen consultation with Dr. Rosenbaum. During this appointment, we will examine your teen and make sure they are a good candidate for invisible braces. You and your teen can also use this appointment to ask any additional questions you may have about orthodontic treatment.

Step Two: Dr. Rosenbaum will make an impression of your teen’s teeth and send it to the Invisalign lab so that they can create your teen’s custom-made aligners.

Step Three: Your teen will receive their first set of clear plastic aligners, which will be worn for about 2 weeks. The first set of aligners will be tried on and checked in our office to ensure a precise and accurate fit.

Step Four: Your teen will receive a new set of aligners every couple of weeks to move their teeth gradually into the most attractive position.

Knowing When To Change Your Aligners is a Cinch!

Invisalign Teen has a fantastic tool called a Blue Dot Indicator on each set of aligners. This convenient reminder fades gradually, showing your teen exactly when to move on to the next set of aligners.

Losing Your Aligners is No Problem!

Your teen may be notorious for losing things, but with Invisalign Teen this is not a problem. Once you choose Invisalign clear braces for your teen, replacement aligners can be mailed to you at no additional cost if your teen happens to misplace or damage them.

Added Benefits of Invisalign For Teens

Here are some of the added benefits for your teen’s teeth when they choose Invisalign Teen:

  1. Discretion: Everyone knows that teens are usually focused on every little aspect of their appearance. Metal braces can take the focus off of a great smile. Since Invisalign Teen aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic, they are nearly invisible. This means that instead of being known for their ugly metal braces, they can enjoy the freedom of smiling every day without a mouth full of metal.
  2. Convenience: A mouth full of metal brackets and wires often holds teens back from enjoying teen activities. Playing an instrument can be very hard when students have metal brackets and wires. It is also hard for them to perform activities knowing they could get hit in the mouth. Invisalign Teen offers a great alternative that helps them focus on doing what they do best, being a teenager. So ditch the metal mouth and be free to smile with invisible braces!
  3. Freedom: Metal braces limit your teen’s ability to do all of the things that typical teens enjoy like chewing gum, playing sports, or eating foods like popcorn, corn on the cob, or whole apples. With Invisalign Teen, the plastic aligners are removable. This allows your teen to eat what they want, do what they want, brush, floss, and not worry about their orthodontic treatment getting in the way.
