Why choose Invisalign Teen over traditional braces?

1. Virtually Invisible Treatment

Invisalign Teen aligners are made from a clear, SmartTrack material, making them virtually invisible. This means you can confidently flash your smile without the noticeable metal brackets and wires that come with traditional braces.

2. Comfort and Convenience

Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth. There’s no pain from tightening wires or the risk of broken brackets. Plus, they’re removable, so you can eat all your favorite foods without any food restrictions and maintain your oral hygiene routine without any added complications.

3. Customized for Teens

Invisalign Teen treatment considers the unique needs of growing teenagers. The aligners come with a blue dot wear indicator, which fades as the aligner is worn, letting you know when it’s time for a new set. And because accidents happen, Invisalign Teen offers free replacement aligners, just in case one goes missing.

4. Effective for Complex Cases

Many teens and their parents worry that Invisalign might not be suitable for complex orthodontic cases. However, with advancements in Invisalign technology and our skilled orthodontists at Orthospaceship, we can treat a wide range of cases, from simple to complex, using Invisalign Teen aligners.

Invisalign Teen treatment process

1. Free Consultation

Your journey begins with a free consultation at our Los Angeles office. Our experienced orthodontists will evaluate your teeth and discuss your treatment goals. Using advanced imaging technology, we’ll show you a digital roadmap of your treatment plan, giving you a glimpse of your future smile.

2. Custom-made Aligners

Once you decide to proceed with Invisalign Teen, we’ll take precise impressions of your teeth. These will be used to create custom-fit trays, ensuring maximum comfort and effectiveness.

3. Treatment Time

The average treatment time for Invisalign Teen is about the same, if not shorter, than traditional braces. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next set. Regular check-ins at our office will ensure your treatment is on track.

4. Life with Invisalign Teen

One of the best parts of Invisalign treatment is the minimal disruption to your daily life. Whether you’re on the school soccer team, play the flute in the school band, or love popcorn during movie nights, Invisalign Teen aligners won’t hold you back. Plus, with no metal to irritate your mouth, you’ll have a more comfortable orthodontic experience.

Comparing Invisalign Teen to other orthodontic options

1. Traditional Metal Braces

The most common image that comes to mind when thinking of orthodontics is traditional metal braces. While effective, they are noticeable and come with food restrictions. Brushing and flossing also require extra steps to ensure proper oral hygiene.

2. Clear Braces

Similar to metal braces but made of clear or tooth-colored ceramic. They’re less noticeable than metal braces but still come with the same food restrictions and hygiene challenges.

3. Lingual Braces

These are placed behind the teeth, making them invisible when you smile. However, they can be more challenging to adjust to and clean.

4. Invisalign Clear Aligners

The clear advantage (pun intended) is the nearly invisible appearance. They’re also removable, making eating and oral care a breeze. Invisalign Teen takes this a step further by addressing the specific needs of teenagers.

Without brackets and wires, brushing and flossing are straightforward, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Boosted Self-Esteem

  • Many teens feel self-conscious about braces. Invisalign Teen allows for a more discreet treatment, boosting confidence during these formative years.

Which is better, Invisalign aligners or braces?

While both Invisalign aligners and traditional braces aim to straighten teeth, they have distinct differences. Braces use metal brackets and wires to move teeth, while Invisalign uses clear aligners. Braces are fixed and can’t be removed, whereas Invisalign aligners can be taken out for eating and cleaning. Additionally, Invisalign treatment often requires fewer visits to the orthodontist compared to braces.

What are the benefits of clear aligners over traditional braces?

Clear aligners offer several advantages over traditional braces:

  • Aesthetic appeal
  • Comfort
  • Flexibility
  • Reduced risk of gum and tooth damage
  • Easier maintenance of oral hygiene

How much do clear aligners cost compared to traditional braces?

The cost of clear aligners is generally comparable to traditional braces. However, the exact price can vary based on the brand, treatment duration, and specific dental issues. It’s essential to get a personalized quote from an orthodontist to understand the costs involved.

How do Invisalign trays work?

Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with an orthodontist. They will take impressions of your teeth, which are then used to create a series of custom aligners. These aligners are worn for 20-22 hours a day, with each set being replaced every two weeks.

Do I need Invisalign rubber bands?

Some Invisalign treatments require the use of rubber bands to help align the jaw or correct bite issues. If rubber bands are needed, the orthodontist will provide specific instructions on how to wear them.

Cons of Invisalign treatment

While Invisalign offers many benefits, there are some drawbacks to consider:

  • Aligners must be worn consistently for effective results
  • Potential for lost or damaged aligners
  • May not be suitable for severe orthodontic issues

The Invisalign process: A closer look

The Invisalign process involves several steps, from consultation to the final retainer stage.
Throughout the treatment, patients will have regular check-ups with their orthodontist to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.

What can I eat with Invisalign aligners?

One of the key benefits of Invisalign is the ability to eat whatever you like. However, it’s essential to remove the aligners before eating and drinking anything other than water. After meals, teeth should be brushed before placing the aligners back in.

How long does Invisalign treatment take?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies based on individual needs. On average, treatment lasts between 12 to 18 months. However, some cases may be shorter or longer.

Do I need to remove Invisalign aligners?

One of the main differences between Invisalign and traditional braces is that Invisalign aligners must be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This ensures optimal oral hygiene and prevents damage to the aligners. With Invisalign, you simply remove them from your mouth.
