When you think of adolescent orthodontics, you probably picture traditional metal and wire braces. While conventional braces provide excellent results, most teens prefer the discretion of Invisalign in Madison, AL.
In most cases, teens do not want to draw attention to their orthodontic treatment. They’d much prefer to keep it on the down-low. Invisalign allows them to do so, which is why teens so often request this orthodontic option.
Invisalign For Teens in Madison, AL
We start your teen with an evaluation in our dental office. If the dentist determines that Invisalign will correct the orthodontic issues, we take careful impressions of their teeth and send the results to the Invisalign lab. The lab then manufactures a series of aligners that work across a predetermined timeframe; your teen’s dentist will let you know how long treatment will last.
With Invisalign, your teen can enjoy discretion because their friends and classmates won’t notice they're undergoing treatment most of the time. They can also remove their aligners to brush, floss, and eat meals. However, they should wear their aligners for about 22 hours per day.
After treatment, we provide a clear retainer to maintain their results and prevent orthodontic relapse.
Orthodontic Issues Invisalign Can Correct
Your dentist will let you and your teen know what to expect after treatment, but in many cases, Invisalign can address the following:
- Overbite, underbite, crossbite, openbite
- Midline issues and unusual spacing
- Crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth
