What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system of clear plastic aligner trays that fit over teeth to straighten them without the need for traditional braces. They’re removable, so patients can eat and drink normally and engage in their regular oral hygiene routines. They’re also virtually invisible, so no one will even notice you’re wearing them!
Invisalign corrects teeth over time by adjusting your teeth to the aligner trays, then swapping them out for new, slightly more corrected trays every few weeks. Over time, your teeth will move to their planned positions and you’ll be left with a clear, straight smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
- No visible wires or brackets, so you can feel like yourself
- Invisalign works in just one short year for most adults
- Floss and brush your teeth normally, reducing the risk of tooth decay or staining
- Invisalign is removed for meals, so you can eat and drink with no obstacles.
- Aligners are made of smooth plastic, so there are no sharp edges to irritate your mouth
Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign is a great option if your teen needs braces. There are no sharp edges, so if your child plays a musical instrument or a sport, there’s no need to worry about mouth irritation. In addition, your teen can feel like themselves during a time in their lives when self-confidence is crucial.
Invisalign Teen uses special technology that’s been developed to ensure that teenagers get the most out of this system. Small blue dots on the aligners fade when they are worn the recommended 20-22 hours a day, so parents will know if their teen has been wearing them accordingly.
Invisalign costs the same as traditional braces and is covered by many insurance policies. We also offer an affordable payment plan option to cover any outstanding costs.
