Invisalign® for Teens
The clear alternative to straightening teeth.
Let's face it, many adults and teens today don't like the idea of wearing metal braces. While traditional braces are a highly effective way to straighten teeth, they're not the only way. If you're interested in learning about a clear, nearly invisible teeth straightening solution that we offer to older teens and adults, keep reading. Invisalign clear aligners may be exactly what you are looking for to get the smile you've always wanted and to change your life for the better. Our orthodontist, Dr. Michael Crosby, is a top Invisalign provider in the area.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a treatment that consists of clear aligners used to gradually straighten your teeth over a period of time. Treatment times vary for each patient, but you will get a new set of aligners every two weeks. For minor crowding issues, Invisalign could resolve your problem in 4-6 months. For moderate to severe teeth crowding issues, it could take anywhere from 9 months to 2 years. When you visit Dental Town, our orthodontist, Dr. Michael Crosby will discuss your Invisalign treatment options, as well as give you an approximate time table for how long you will need to wear your Invisalign clear aligners.
What are the advantages of Invisalign?
Invisalign has a lot of advantages for both teens and adults. For starters, if you love chewing gum, eating popcorn or playing sports, you don't have to take a time out! These removable aligners allow you to still enjoy the foods and activities you love! Other advantages of Invisalign include:
- Easier to clean teeth
- No restrictions on diet
- Esthetically much better than braces
- Often shorter treatments
- Not as many emergency visits due to broken brackets or poking wires
