Invisalign Teen

Our teenage years are a pivotal period during life when self-esteem and personal self-image develop, but it’s also a critical time in which many orthodontic problems can be effectively treated. Since many teens feel self-conscious about wearing metal braces, Invisalign Teen is an ideal innovative solution that meets both needs. Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists is proud to offer Invisalign Teen in Dothan, Enterprise, Ozark and the surrounding community.

How Does Invisalign Teen Work?

Invisalign Teen straightens teeth over a period of several months by using several sets of clear, removable trays. Measurements are taken through advanced digital imaging equipment so each set of trays can be customized to precisely and comfortably fit your teen’s upper and lower dental arches. As your teen wears these aligner trays for the recommended 22 hours each day, they gradually shift teeth into proper alignment and correct common issues such as:

  • Teeth crowding
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

The Advantages of Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen is a comfortable and convenient method to achieve a straight, healthy smile. It’s no wonder that many patients choose it as a great alternative to braces in Ozark, Dothan, and other communities since it offers so many great benefits:

  • Alignment trays are only worn for 22 hours daily, allowing wearers to remove them for eating and other occasions.
  • Invisalign doesn’t require patients to avoid eating certain types of food.
  • Dental care is easier since wearers can take out their trays to brush and floss their teeth.
  • Invisalign trays generally do not irritate teeth and gums.
  • Alignment trays are nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Invisalign Teen also offers some additional benefits to parents of Invisalign wearers. Invisalign Teen aligners have blue wear dots which allow parents and orthodontists to see how often the aligners have been worn. If not worn enough the blue wear dots will still be visible. Invisalign Teen also comes with backup aligners, as teens with busy or active lifestyles can often end up breaking or losing aligners.
