Teens now have a great option designed just for them! Dr. Underwood offers the Invisalign TeenTM system. This is a convenient, invisible orthodontic treatment that will fit well in your teen’s busy lifestyle. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Underwood can determine if Invisalign Teen is right for your teen! Imagine giving your teen a beautiful, straight smile without braces!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dr. Underwood will take pictures and impressions of your teen’s teeth. He will then map out a precise visual plan of tooth movements from the beginning to the end of treatment. Aligners are made to custom—fit their teeth only.
Teens wear their aligners about 20-22 hours each day except to eat, brush, or floss. They will be given several aligners at a time at each appointment. Every two weeks the old aligner will be replaced with a new one. The aligners will gradually move your teeth into their prescribed position.
PROS OF USING INVISALIGN TEEN:
• Practically invisible
• Easily brush and floss
• Eat whatever
• Play wind instruments
• Less chance of irritated gums and mouth
• No emergency visits for broken brackets or loose wires
Invisalign Teen is comparable to the cost of regular braces.
