A Discreet, Convenient Alternative to Braces
Your teen years are typically a very self-conscious time in life. That’s why it’s not a surprise that many teens are reluctant to wear metal braces. However, avoiding the orthodontic treatment they need can lead to severe oral health issues that will cost them down the line.
That’s why we recommend Invisalign Teen. This treatment uses clear, removable aligners to straighten your teen’s teeth, allowing them to enjoy a healthy smile well into adulthood.
Faster, More Efficient Treatment
Each set of Invisalign aligners are made from our unique SmartTrack® material for faster and more predictable results. They’re also customized to the unique shape of your bite and individually trimmed, ensuring a perfect fit.
Our advanced iTero® technology will show your teen the results of their treatment before it even begins. This gives them unmatched confidence heading into the procedure. Best of all, the whole treatment process can be completed up to two times faster than metal braces.
Greater Comfort, Greater Freedom
Since the aligners are removable, your teen can eat and drink whatever they want during treatment, and even play contact sports. Just make sure they remove their aligners first.
To ensure successful results, your teen will need to wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. This gives them plenty of time to enjoy meals and other activities without impacting their treatment.
If you’re worried that your teen won’t follow these guidelines, the aligners feature a blue dot indicator that makes it easy to tell if they’re wearing their aligners enough. This makes it easy to monitor their treatment and make sure it’s going according to plan.
Enjoy More Free Time
Throughout your teen’s treatment, they’ll receive a new set of aligners roughly every two weeks. Each set is designed to only act on certain teeth, gradually shifting them until your desired results are achieved.
You and your teen will meet with Dr. Cooper every six to eight weeks so he can monitor their progress and make any necessary adjustments. Unlike with braces, you won’t have to worry about scheduling sudden emergency appointments for broken wires or snagged brackets.
Instead, you and your teen can spend less time in our office and more time enjoying your lives.
