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.
The Dentist Of Allen Reviews
Very welcoming environment. Emily is the best hygienist ever! She always provides a very thorough cleaning. She is so personable, kind, and knowledgeable. I appreciate the care and honesty from all staff I’ve interacted with. They are also flexible and have easily accommodated me when I’ve needed to reschedule or push an appointment back. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend!
Dr. Koelker & Patsy are the best!! I am confident & comfortable with Dr. Koelker & his team. The whole office works well together and as a patient you are informed of treatment options & treatment cost. Will continue to come here for dental care.
My husband and I have been going to the Dentist of Allen for over 30 years. They are the best!! They use the latest technology and have dealt with all kinds of dental issues over the years. We trust them implicitly and highly recommend them.
Emily was great! She was an awesome hygienist and super kind. All of the staff are great there and I would recommend this dentist to anyone who is looking for one!
Shared with them that I’ve been a bit depressed lately, causing my teeth cleaning habits to diminish and she was incredibly understanding and respectful. She was gentle and engaged in really fun convo with me. Typically dentist offices just play like Christian radio which can get on my nerves. Thankfully that wasn’t the choice of music today and it made my experience much more enjoyable. Definitely recommend since this location seems to be a bit slower despite being directly off the highway.
