Invisalign for Teens

Invisalign for Adults & TeensWhen teeth alignment issues arise, the thought of braces is often what everyone dreads. No one wants braces messing up their smile, which is why we offer Invisalign to all of our patients, old and young alike. With Invisalign for teens, you don’t have to deal with painful brackets or wires and you can forget about braces messing up your smile. No one will be able to tell that you are wearing these clear plastic teeth straightening trays. Invisalign can treat a wide variety of alignment issues, and our Smithtown Long Island location is ready to meet your needs!

What Is Invisalign for Teens?

Invisalign is a teeth alignment option that takes the place of braces and is invisible in your smile. Instead of attaching big metal brackets and wires to your teeth, we custom fit them with thin, clear, plastic trays that you wear throughout the day and night. The trays will gently push your teeth into the correct position. Once each tray has done it’s job of moving your teeth a little bit further into the correct position, you will switch it out for a new one that continues the progression of your teeth.

Invisalign Isn’t Just For Adults

We offer Invisalign to all of our patients, regardless of age, so that everyone can experience the no hassle teeth alignment system. It’s hard enough to deal with the stresses of school without having to deal with braces too! Brace are uncomfortable, unsightly, and require regular adjustments that pull your child out of school. With Invisalign, there is no more discomfort because it doesn’t use the brackets and wires of normal braces. No one can tell your child is having their teeth straightened, so the risk of having jokes made about their smile goes away.

Because Invisalign is removable, your child can more easily maintain great oral health. When kids and teens get braces, often the first thing to go is their oral hygiene. It’s not easy to take care of teeth that have braces placed over them, in fact, it’s downright hard! With Invisalign you can simply remove the plastic trays to brush and floss as you normally would – it’s that simple! When you choose Invisalign for your child, you are helping them take better care of their teeth and are potentially avoiding costly fillings in the future.

Sports Friendly

Because Invisalign doesn’t require the placement of wires, brackets, or bands in your kid’s mouth, they are free of having to worry about braces related injuries. It is not uncommon for sports related activities to result in oral injury because of the extra equipment that braces require.

The Process With No Messy Impressions

When you decide on Invisalign for yourself or your child, we will take a digital scan of your mouth, using the iTero 3-D Scanner, that we will use to craft the series of Invisalign trays. There is no messy impression taking. On the second visit to our office, we will give you the first set of trays, and you will be done! It’s that simple!
