Put your teeth straightening issues to rest with our Invisalign treatment. A great alternative to braces, Invisalign, is quite popular among teenagers and adults. In this treatment, you will wear a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. Moreover, the aligners also prevent underbites, overbites, crossbites, and crowding or spacing of the teeth.

The Invisalign system has been around for decades and has successfully treated thousands of cases. The invisible aligners are made from a flexible thermoplastic material called SmartTrack, created exclusively for Invisalign treatment. These clear aligners are FDA-approved and contain no BPS, BPA, latex, or gluten. They are thin and fit comfortably over your teeth, making them practically invisible as well as easy to clean and maintain.

There are no dietary restrictions with the aligners, and their cost is almost similar to metal braces. Prices may range from $3500 to $8000, depending on the patient. It not only treats spacing, overcrowding, overlapping teeth, but it also gives the patient a brighter and whiter smile.

With Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about daunting and embarrassing braces. It will bring back your lost confidence and smile.

Invisalign for Teens

Initially, Invisalign® was not recommended to treat teens as it was feared that they might not wear the aligners for the required time. However, now Invisalign is ideal for teens. There is a blue indicator tab on them to show when the aligners were worn and also sends a reminder to change them every two weeks.

 

Invisalign aligners are a great hit with teenagers as they are easy to clean, and they can avoid cavities and decay from forming in and around their teeth.
