Invisalign® for Teens Reading, MA
Every teen’s smile is unique, which is why Invisalign® digital treatment solutions are perfect for helping teens reach their smile goals faster. This state-of-the-art technology allows our office to deliver a teeth-straightening solution that’s more precise, comfortable, and faster than traditional braces.
And speed of treatment is important to many teens — and parents. With Invisalign®’s innovations such as SmartTrack® material, your teen can get their perfect smile up to 50% faster.* And as your teen’s smile transforms, you may find they have a boost in confidence, self-esteem, and even happiness.
The Treatment for Teens
At your first visit we will take a scan or impressions of your teen’s teeth using state-of-the-art software. Using this image as a guideline, will work closely with Invisalign® treatment specialists to develop a complete digital treatment plan. This plan will map out your teen’s smile transformation from start to finish — allowing you and them to get a sneak preview of what the final look will be!
The Aligners for Teens
Invisalign® clear aligners are created with the Invisalign® system’s proprietary SmartTrack material for extra comfort. Your teen needs to wear their aligners for 22 hours per day, but they can be removed to eat, to play sports, or participate in other special activities, offering fewer interruptions to his or her lifestyle. To ensure the aligners are being worn often enough for progress, you can monitor your son’s or daughter’s compliance through a discreet blue indicator on the aligner.
Teens love the Invisalign® treatment options because they can:
- Keep enjoying all their favorite foods.
- Stay active in their favorite sports and extracurricular activities.
- Brush and floss more easily, without brackets and wires in the way.
- Experience fewer emergency visits to the orthodontist to fix broken wires and brackets.
- Forget about worrying that people will notice your braces — Invisalign® is nearly invisible.
Treatment with Invisalign® moves along quickly, if your teen remembers to wear their aligners for the appropriate amount of time each day. Other things to understand about Invisalign® treatment include:
- Your teen will wear each set of aligners for one to two weeks, as long as they are wearing them for the right amount of time each day.
- You’ll need to schedule check-ups every six to eight weeks for your teen to check progress and pick up the next batch of aligners.
- When your teen begins wearing each new set of aligners, they may feel a little extra pressure or discomfort for a few days, which is totally normal.
As your teen’s treatment progresses, Invisalign® transforms their smile discreetly using a series of small, expertly designed tooth shifts. However, if your teen decides against Invisalign® treatment within the first six months, we offer the Invisalign® Teen Guarantee, which gives you the option to switch to wires and brackets to complete your treatment.
