What is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is an orthodontic treatment solution that uses virtually invisible aligners to gradually straighten teeth. It is also completely removable, meaning there are no dietary restrictions and it's easy to maintain excellent oral hygiene. Invisalign Teen offers all the profits of traditional braces without metal brackets and wires, making them the ideal orthodontic solution for the teenage lifestyle.
How Does It Work?
Treatment with Invisalign Teen is simple:
- Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks.
- Aligners can be taken out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- You'll schedule a check-up with us every 8-10 weeks.
- With each new set of aligners, teeth gradually move into position.
- Average treatment time lasts 6 -18 months, using an average of 18 to 30 aligners.
