Invisalign Teen is a clear removable device that is virtually invisible. Because Invisalign is removable you can continue regular daily activities, while still being able to brush and floss with ease. Thanks to its flexibility and the absence of metal wires, Invisalign Teen is also gentle on your teeth and mouth.
The Invisalign treatment starts with a Free Invisalign Consultation with one of our experienced Invisalign dentists or Specialist Orthodontist to confirmed you are eligible for treatment, they will take photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression, of your teeth. These records will be used to create a Clincheck® 3D treatment plan, just for you.
Once the ClinCheck plan is approved, Invisalign will then make a series of custom made aligners that will only fit you.
Each aligner is slightly different from the previous one and moves your teeth gently into the desired position. The length of treatment may vary dependant on the severity of your case. On average Invisalign Teen cases take approximately 9-18 months. For patients looking for fixed braces orthodontic treatment, we offer many other braces systems such as Simpli5, Win Lingual Braces, Clarity Advanced Braces and Six Month Smiles.
We will see you for a progress review every four to six weeks and you will then receive your new aligners. Each aligner will move your teeth little by little, week by week, until your teeth reach the desired position.
