Invisalign Treatment for Teens Orlando

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

Orlando Invisalign Dentist

Is Invisalign Right For You?

With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth discreetly as they are made out of a clear plastic. Each new tray of aligners are custom fitted specifically for your teeth.

With the Invisalign Clear Aligners software, we are able to see exactly how your teeth will move with each new tray, and how they will appear as they move into their final positions. When you start your treatment with Invisalign, you will receive a sequence of aligners designed to move your teeth through each stage of your treatment. The number of Invisalign trays will differ for everyone depending on the original condition of the patient’s teeth, but the average patient will receive around 20 to 30 sets of aligners. Treatment time also varies for each individual and will be determined by your dentist as a part of your plan, but often you can expect to wear each new set of Invisalign aligners for around two weeks before transitioning to the next set in the series. Though the total amount of time an individual needs to use Invisalign before it is completed is different for everyone, you should start seeing results and a straighter smile within the first six months!

Traditional Braces

Like Invisalign, traditional braces are used to correct over-crowded and crooked teeth. What differs between Invisalign and traditional braces is that traditional braces can also help fix issues with your jaw, or a misaligned bite.

Traditional braces are made up of metal brackets connected by a wire. They are placed on your teeth with an adhesive, and unlike Invisalign, are not changed at all during the treatment process. However, you do need to get them tightened about every 5 weeks or so, as the pressure that is created is what gradually straightens your teeth over time.

Invisalign Clear Aligners for Teens

Teens now have a clear choice for braces. If we think they’re right for you, you can get nearly invisible braces with Invisalign Teen®.

To be a candidate for Invisalign Clear Aligners, you must have lost all of your baby teeth and your second molars must have partially erupted. To help teens remember to wear them, the aligners have a blue dot. When worn as directed, the dark blue dot fades to light blue. Teens, parents, and doctors can tell that the teens are wearing them as instructed.

We know the teenage years can be awkward, and high school is hard enough as it is. Traditional braces are noticeable, uncomfortable, and can be a hit to your confidence. Invisalign on the other hand, is a great choice for teens wanting to straighten their smile for a few reasons:

  1. Fast and Discreet: Invisalign are nearly invisible and often go unnoticed by others, so you won’t be drawing attention to yourself. Invisalign also works quickly, meaning you’ll start seeing results in as little as six months!
  2. Comfort: Invisalign clear aligners are made from SmartTrack material, with comfort and flexibility in mind! They are also fitted specifically for your teeth, so they fit snug and comfortably around your teeth!
  3. Convenient: Invisalign allows you to do you! They are removeable and easy to both take off and put on. You can take them out whenever you need, whether you have sports practice, are eating, or attending a school dance. Invisalign won’t interrupt your life!

What material are Invisalign aligners made of? Are they comfortable?

Invisalign aligners are made out of SmartTrack material, a plastic material often made from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) which is a clear, durable and flexible material. Invisalign is known to be a lot more lightweight and comfortable than traditional braces. The smooth plastic of the aligners eliminates the possibility of your skin, tongue, lips, etc. from getting caught in the metal brackets traditional braces are made from.

Is Invisalign as effective as traditional metal braces?

The short answer is yes, Invisalign are just as effective as traditional braces in straightening your smile. In fact, it is believed in moderate and mild cases, Invisalign actually works better than traditional metal braces as they apply pressure all around the teeth in order to move them, where as traditional braces pull from a specific point on a tooth where the bracket has been attached. It is important to note, that in more sever situations of over-crowding and crookedness, metal braces may be needed to straighten the teeth.
