Chicago Teen Invisalign
At Diamond Plus Orthodontics we create custom treatment plans that fit into your lifestyle. We know teens are busy and always on the move, that’s why Teen Invisalign may be the right choice for those that don’t want traditional metal braces!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign has created over 14 million smiles with their custom clear aligners, making them the industry’s leading braces alternative. Using patented SmartTrack technology to safely and discreetly move the teeth, Invisalign helps teens achieve the smile of their dreams. Invisalign clear aligners are fully removable, so there’s no need to limit what you eat or drink!
How Does Invisalign Teen Work?
At your complimentary consultation, we use innovative technology to take a 3D map of your teen’s smile with our iTero scanner. No more uncomfortable goop impressions! That map becomes the blueprint for your prescription aligners. Over the course of treatment, the aligners will safely guide your teeth into place. You can see a 3D rendering of what your teen’s dream smile will look like, which allows you to be part of the adjustment process before treatment officially begins!
Your trusted Chicago orthodontist and our team of specialists work closely with Invisalign to develop a treatment plan made specifically for each patient. Your teen will receive their clear aligners and will change them as directed. Safely and slowly, their teeth will be guided into their new place. They’ll be smiling with confidence in no time!
Is Teen Invisalign Right for My Child?
Invisalign is a great alternative to braces for those who want to straighten their smile without restrictions on what to eat or drink, visible orthodontic appliances, and those responsible enough to manage treatment. All orthodontic treatment is a collaborative process between the patient and doctor, but Invisalign require your teen to be responsible and compliant with instructions. Patients will be responsible for wearing their aligners 22 hours a day, cleaning them often, and taking good care of them to not lose or break the aligners. If you’re wondering if Teen Invisalign is right for your child, schedule a complimentary consultation today!
Benefits of Invisalign
Align Technology revolutionized the orthodontic industry with Invisalign. From 3D scans to SmartTrack Material, Invisalign’s advanced technology helps move teeth gently and discreetly.
We often see patients push off orthodontic care due to the worry of the look of metal braces and how it may affect their daily lives. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth, allowing you to straighten your smile without drawing attention to your treatment. Your confidence will only grow as your teeth move into their new positions!
Maintain Oral Health
Invisalign doesn’t have to get in the way of your oral health! Removing your aligners to eat and drink allows you to continue to brush and floss as you normally would. Each time you remove your aligners, give them a thorough cleaning and brush your teeth before putting them back in.
Invisalign is meant to take out during mealtimes, meaning none of your favorite food are off-limits! You can enjoy all the foods you like – just make sure to brush your teeth before putting your aligners back in.
Invisalign fits into your lifestyle, not the other way around. As long as you have your aligners in for 22 hours a day, your day-to-day life isn’t greatly affected by your orthodontic treatment. If you play a contact sport and want to remove them, no worries! Having your photo taken and don’t want them in – go for it!
