The Invisalign for Teens Treatment Process

Consultation and Examination

The first step in the Invisalign for Teens treatment process is a comprehensive consultation and examination. Dr. Larrabee or Dr. Sharma will conduct a thorough examination of your teen's teeth and jaw, using the latest imaging technology to get a detailed view of their oral structure. They will discuss the treatment options and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for your teen. This is a great opportunity for you and your teen to ask any questions and learn more about the treatment.

Custom Treatment Plan

Once it's determined that Invisalign for Teens is the right treatment, the next step is to create a custom treatment plan. Using the images and measurements taken during the examination, Dr. Larrabee or Dr. Sharma will design a series of aligners tailored to your teen's specific needs. They will also map out the expected progression of the treatment, giving you a clear idea of what to expect at each stage.

Receiving and Wearing the Aligners

The final step is receiving and wearing the aligners. Once the custom aligners are ready, your teen will start wearing them for approximately 20-22 hours each day. They can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, making it easy to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the treatment. Your teen will switch to a new set of aligners every week or two, gradually moving their teeth into the desired position.

The Benefits Of Invisalign for Teens

Aesthetically Pleasing

One of the key benefits of Invisalign for Teens is that it's aesthetically pleasing. The aligners are clear and virtually invisible, making them a discreet option for teenagers who are self-conscious about their appearance. This can boost their self-esteem and make them more confident in social situations.

Comfortable and Convenient

Invisalign for Teens is also comfortable and convenient. The aligners are made from a soft, flexible material that fits snugly over the teeth, reducing the risk of discomfort or irritation. They can be easily removed for eating and cleaning, allowing your teen to continue enjoying their favorite foods and maintain their oral hygiene without any hassle.

Effective and Efficient

Finally, Invisalign for Teens is an effective and efficient treatment. It's designed to address a wide range of orthodontic issues, from simple to complex. And because the treatment plan is custom-made, it can often achieve the desired results faster than traditional braces. Plus, with fewer office visits required, it's a convenient option for busy families.
