What is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is a clear way to straighten your smile without braces! Each aligner is custom-made for your unique smile, ensuring a comfortable treatment from start to finish. Dr. Moon will provide a series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners that move your teeth just as effectively as other treatment methods. The best part? You can go about your daily routines without any food restrictions or complicated brushing regimens!
How does Invisalign for Teens work?
- Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.
- Remove only to eat, drink, brush and floss.
- Your teeth will move gradually each week.
- Visit us every 8-10 weeks.
- Total treatment time averages 6-15 months.
- Average number of aligners is between 18 and 30.
What conditions does Invisalign for Teens treat?
Thanks to its advanced technology, Invisalign Teen can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, that were previously only treated with traditional braces. These conditions include:
- Overly crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Olathe and Overland Park because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less “chair time.” The typical Invisalign for Teens patient sees Dr. Moon once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens
Invisalign for Teens effectively straightens teeth the same way metal braces do. Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens in Olathe and Overland Park who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign, and Dr. Moon’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
