Up to 2X Faster
Imagine if there was a way for your teen to have straight, healthy teeth without all the hassles associated with metal braces. Invisalign can do this. Our innovative SmartTrack® material offers precise, predictable results you can count on. And it’s nearly invisible, making your teen’s treatment as inconspicuous as possible.
Invisalign will enhance your teen’s self-confidence because it’s fast, comfortable, and effective. And since Invisalign never needs tightening, there are far fewer orthodontic appointments, saving you time that you’d otherwise be spending on frequent office visits.
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.
Faster, More Efficient
We use our iTero Element scanner® to create a digital 3D model of your teen’s teeth, allowing us to customize each set of aligners. That way, each aligner will apply the perfect amount of pressure to guide your teen’s teeth to the correct position.
By moving the patient’s teeth precisely along the right path to a perfect smile, Invisalign is able to straighten your teen’s smile up to twice as fast as alternative treatments.
Our advanced imaging technology also gives your teen the opportunity to see what the final results of their treatment will look like before we begin straightening their smile.
For optimal results, your teen will need to wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. This leaves an extra two to four hours when the aligners can be removed.
For your convenience, Invisalign clear aligners are easy to apply and remove. If your teen has football practice or dinner with friends, they can simply remove their aligners and replace them once they’re finished.
Sometimes, teens might forget to put their Invisalign aligners back on, but we have a solution for that. Invisalign features a blue dot indicator that tells you how long your teen has been wearing their aligners.
Fewer Dentist Appointments,
More Time for You
We typically schedule checkups for our Invisalign patients every six to eight weeks. During these visits, Dr. Grussmark will monitor the progress of your smile, making adjustments to your treatment plan as necessary.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign doesn’t involve wires or brackets that can break or become detached, so you won’t need to schedule any sudden emergency appointments. Instead, you and your teen will spend less time at the orthodontist’s office and more time doing the things you enjoy.
Live on the Move
Every facet of Invisalign care is designed to provide outstanding results, from our advanced technology to our customized treatment planning to our virtually invisible aligners. Invisalign will allow your teen to smile with confidence — and they’ll never have to experience the embarrassment and inconvenience of metal braces.
Frequently Asked Questions
How old do you need to be for Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is designed for patients who have permanent dentition and already lost all their baby teeth. As a result, most patients who are younger than 12 years old won’t qualify. If you aren’t sure about your son or daughter’s eligibility, Dr. Grussmark can evaluate their teeth and determine the ideal treatment plan for their needs.
How do I know if my teen is wearing their aligners enough?
In order to ensure successful results, your teen will need to wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. Many parents wonder how they can possibly keep track of their teen’s treatment and make sure they’re following instructions.
Thankfully, the aligners feature a blue dot indicator to help you monitor their treatment. If the small blue dot doesn’t fade by the end of the day, you’ll know your teen isn’t wearing their aligners enough.
