Invisalign treatment can take anywhere from a few months to two years. Your teen will receive 15-20 sets of numbered aligners, and they will change their aligners once a week. Each new aligner will gradually move the teeth closer to the final smile.
Invisible aligners have a number of advantages. They’re transparent and don’t stand out as much as standard braces or even ceramic braces. They can also be taken out, making dental care and eating considerably easier for teenagers.
Treatment with Invisalign Teen is ideal for busy parents because there are never any emergency appointments for broken wires or brackets. Dr. Debra and Dr. Richard continue to monitor your teen’s progress each week by using virtual care – your teen will take a few photos of their mouth using the Invisalign app and our doctors will be able to remotely check their progress. This makes scheduling appointments a breeze!
Compliance is key! Teenagers will need to wear the aligners for 20–22 hours each day.
