What Is Invisalign Teen Orthodontics?

Many teenagers are concerned with their physical appearance so traditional metal braces might not be the best orthodontic treatment for them. That is why we offer Invisalign Teen clear aligners for younger patients in Allen, TX. Similar to the adult version, Invisalign Teen orthodontics can safely and effectively correct the position and alignment of a patient's smile in about 1 – 2 years using removable aligners. Unlike the adult version, Invisalign Teen treatment has compliance indicators, eruption tabs, and substitute aligners. If your child is concerned about the look of metal braces, schedule a consultation at The Dentist of Allen in Allen, TX to get more information on Invisalign Teen clear aligners.

What Should I Expect from Invisalign Teen Treatment?

Many parents worry about the use of costly aligners for their teens' orthodontic therapy. It's a big investment (of both money and time), a concern we understand. Invisalign Teen treatment has three specific features that ensure your teen receives a straight smile:

  • Compliance indicators: Areas on the back of the aligners wear off with use so we can tell if your teen isn't using the aligners long enough to keep them accountable and on schedule.
  • Eruption tabs: Features that make space for molars that grow in late so that they can develop in the right location without overcrowding other teeth.
  • Extra replacement aligners: You'll get six substitute aligners to account for broken or lost aligners.

You and your teen will have a consultative appointment with our team to discuss treatment goals and what can be expected during the treatment period. We'll take scans from different angles to make impressions of the teeth and produce custom-fit aligners from them. We typically schedule follow-up visits every 2 – 4 weeks so we can monitor your teen's progress. They will be able to brush and floss without the barrier of metal braces, but the aligners do need to be removed before eating.
