Confidence with Invisalign Teen®
The teenage years can be difficult because it’s a time in their lives when they’re likely to be self-conscious and sensitive to peer pressure. Invisalign Teen is designed to help your teen feel more confident and comfortable in public.
Traditional metal braces are effective, but they make eating and hygiene difficult. This can be embarrassing as food often gets stuck in the metal wires. These problems are eliminated with Invisalign Teen® because the clear plastic aligners are practically invisible and your teen can simply remove them when it’s time to eat.
Most dental issues that are treated with metal braces can also be corrected with Invisalign. Plus, treatment with Invisalign is much faster than it is with regular metal braces. That means your child will get to experience their new smile much sooner, without undergoing the hassles and inconvenience associated with metal braces. And their new smile will do wonders for their self-esteem.
Invisalign can fix a variety of dental problems, including:
When the upper teeth close over the lower teeth.
when the lower teeth close over the upper teeth.
when the jaws don’t line up.
when there are large spaces between teeth.
when the top and bottom teeth don’t meet.
when there isn’t enough room to fit all of your teeth naturally.
See What Your Smile Will Look Like in Advance
Our Cone Beam Computed Tomography scan (CBCT) creates a detailed digital image of your teenager’s smile. Dr. Ang uses this data to design your teen’s individualized treatment plan, and then shares this information with Invisalign, so they can create the custom aligners.
As part of your free consultation with Dr. Ang, we’ll use our advanced technology to create a virtual model of your teen’s smile. This enables us to show you in advance how their new smile will look.
The Disappearing Blue Dots Say Your Teen’s Being Responsible
It’s essential to wear your Invisalign trays consistently to achieve the desired results. Sometimes teenagers forget to re-apply their Invisalign trays after they finish eating or engaging in a strenuous physical activity, and this can dramatically reduce the effectiveness of their treatment.
Fortunately, Invisalign Teen® contains a series of small blue dots that fade over the course of wear. That way, you can be sure that your teen is consistently using their Invisalign trays.
Fewer Dentist Appointments,
Invisalign appointments are typically scheduled every six to eight weeks. During these visits, you’ll be given your new batch of aligners and it will also be an opportunity for Dr. Ang to track your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
Without the risk of detached brackets or broken wires, you won’t need to worry about sudden emergency appointments. That means less time at the dentist and more time to do the important things in life.
More Freedom With Invisalign
Invisalign treatment is fast, convenient, and inconspicuous. Because they contain no wires, Dr. Ang never needs to tighten your teen’s Invisalign trays. That’s why fewer office visits are required with Invisalign. Plus, you’ll never have to rush to our office to treat emergencies such as detached brackets or broken wires.
Dr. Ang wants to see your teen live life to the fullest by spending more time on important activities and less time visiting our office. As a parent, you’ll be elated by the results of this worthwhile investment in your teen’s health and happiness. Invisalign is a gift that will benefit your teen for life.
