Invisalign Teen: A Clear Alternative to Braces
Dr. Susan Gail Tierney, Dr. Michael Sheinis, and the team at Straight Set Orthodontics in Garden City, NY offer their patients treatment with Invisalign Teen: a clear and removable orthodontic treatment meant just for their teenage patients. Invisalign Teen aligner trays are made of a clear thermoplastic material that are custom made to fit over the teeth. They gently exert pressure on misaligned teeth to bring them into a more natural, functional, and attractive position. Invisalign Teen is literally a clear alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign Teen is…
No wires, no brackets, and no rubber bands are used with Invisalign Teen. A clear plastic tray that fits snugly over the teeth are all that is involved in treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign Teen lets teens keep their appearance intact while gently improving their smiles.
Invisalign Teen can be removed by the wearer for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, and cleaning the trays. They are discreet to wear and easy to remove when they need to be, such as when participating in sports or playing a musical instrument. Teens don’t need to be self-conscious about wearing Invisalign. Invisalign is practically invisible to the casual observer. Invisalign must be worn to be effective, however, and should be worn 23 hours per day to achieve the best results.
Easy to care for.
Invisalign Teen is easy to clean by brushing the trays with regular toothpaste and toothbrush, or even a rinse in denture cleanser will keep the tray clean and fresh. Because Invisalign Teen is removable, it can be kept clean even when the wearer is on the go. When a wearer brushes their teeth regularly, they clean the Invisalign clear aligner trays at the same time.
Treatment with Invisalign Teen straightens teeth to a more functional and attractive position. Treatment with Invisalign typically takes the same amount of time as treatment with traditional braces. With conscientious application, the Invisalign Teen wearer can safely, gently, and almost invisibly correct important orthodontic issues with confidence and a minimum of effort.
For teenagers, the idea of having to undergo orthodontic treatment can be stressful. Treatment with Invisalign Teen helps the wearer take the best school or team photos, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Confirmations, birthday party candids, and close-up selfies without worrying about the appearance of their smiles.
