perfect for teens
Invisalign Teen can fit perfectly into your busy lifestyle, giving you a straighter, more beautiful smile easily and discreetly. The experts at Molen Orthodontics will customize your Invisalign Teen treatment program to give you a wide and spectacular smile that fits in perfectly with your individual facial features—without headgear, having to remove teeth or compromising your facial esthetics!
Invisalign Teen is designed specifically with your needs and lifestyle in mind. The aligners come with blue indicator dots that fade when they’re being worn as directed. This way, you and the team at Molen Orthodontics can rest assured that you’re getting the most out of your treatment. We were all teenagers once—hard to believe, we know—and know that accidents happen! That is why Invisalign Teen provides six free replacement aligners, just in case you lose or break one (or two…or six). And, Molen Orthodontics also offers a retainer guarantee to ensure your smile stays beautiful forever.
What Are The Benefits?
Unlike traditional braces that use wires and brackets, the Invisalign Teen system straightens your teeth with a series of clear, smooth, comfortable plastic aligners that you wear for at least 22 hours every day. Every week, you insert a new aligner, gradually straightening your teeth into their optimal position. It’s that easy! And because Invisalign Teen aligners are clear and fit smoothly onto your teeth, your friends will only notice your smile, not your orthodontic treatment.
Brushing your teeth when wearing braces can be a real challenge. And of course, you want to make sure your teeth are not just straight, but free of gum disease and decay. With Invisalign Teen, you simply remove the aligner to brush and floss your teeth. You can also clean the aligners using Invisalign cleaner or by brushing and rinsing it before putting it back on.
As long as you wear your aligners for the recommended amount of time every day, you can take them out when needed. If you play sports that require mouth guards, you can remove and store your Invisalign aligners, replacing them when the game is done. You can take them out at yearbook photo time as well, making sure you’re remembered for your great smile, not a mouthful of metal!
With Invisalign Teen, you can still enjoy popcorn at the movies or crunch into a fresh, crisp apple. Your aligners are removed for mealtimes, meaning that you can continue to enjoy the foods you love. Just remember to brush your teeth thoroughly after each meal, before replacing your aligners.
Treatment time will vary, depending on your orthodontic needs. Every orthodontic treatment plan at Molen Orthodontics begins with a detailed analysis of your jaw and palate, your facial structure, the position and fullness of your lips and cheeks, and the teeth themselves. After that, we go to work designing the perfect smile for your face with the combination of science and artistry that we’re known for, to make sure that you don’t just get straight teeth, but a wide, dazzling smile that will enhance your facial features and make you look your best.
After a 3D digital scan is taken of your teeth, your Invisalign Teen aligners will be custom-crafted to gradually align your smile. The amount of time it will take to achieve your new smile is similar to that of braces—about 16-20 months.
