What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a clear and more attractive alternative to metal braces that does not require elastics or metal brackets.  Invisalign is designed to be comfortable, clear, and thin so that teenagers can continue participating in sports and playing instruments without any interference.

Invisalign is made of a smooth plastic instead of sharp metal like metal braces that can irritate gums and can snap.  At the end of the day, your teenagers lifestyle will not be hindered by using Invisalign.  Invisalign can help fix gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, overly crowded teeth, and crossbites.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen also comes with a smart technology that indicates when Invisalign trays (braces) need to be replaced every two weeks.  Indicators on the Invisalign trays go from dark to light during a two week period to indicate when the Invisalign trays need to be switched.

When you purchase Invisalign, each aligner comes with 6 free replacement trays incase the original aligner gets lost or broken.  Thus, teenagers do not have to worry about breaking their aligners during rigorous sports activities.

The treatment period for Invisalign teen varies from 9 to 18 months, depending on each person’s teeth.  While teenagers are being treated with Invisalign, they will be able to eat any kind of food without worrying about breaking his/her own braces.   Invisalign is removable, and therefore teenagers can remove their aligners to brush and floss like normal.
