Invisalign Teen® in Greensboro, NC
Today’s teenager is active. From school and sports to sleepovers and selfies, teenagers are busy creating lifetime memories. Having a mouth of metal and wire isn’t always ideal, but having a winning, confident smile is. If your teenager is self-conscious about his or her smile, consider a solution that doesn’t cause even more discomfort, or disrupts their daily lifestyle. Irvin Orthodontics offers Invisalign Teen® aligners to the local residents of Greensboro, NC, who are looking for a virtually invisible, no-frills way to improve their smile.
What Is Invisalign Teen®?
Invisalign Teen® is an orthodontic treatment which uses a series of clear aligners to gently and gradually change a teenager’s smile. Invisalign Teen®, is ideal for teenagers whom are experiencing one or more of the following concerns:
- Crooked teeth
- Overlapping or crowded teeth
- Gaps or irregular spacing
- Problems speaking or eating related to the teeth or jaw
Invisalign Teen® treats these concerns using controlled force. A series of clear, plastic aligners are custom-designed to fit each individual’s mouth. Throughout treatment, the aligners will vary only slightly to reposition the teeth over time and target troublesome areas. Over the course of Invisalign Teen® treatment, the teeth will gradually shift into place.
What Should I Reasonably Expect from an Invisalign® Teen Treatment?
Invisalign Teen® treatment straightens teeth over time without sacrificing the look of your current smile. No longer must teenagers worry about how they’ll look in photographs or at special events. Invisalign® treatment is also more convenient for teenagers. Instead of visits to the orthodontist to tighten wires, Invisalign Teen® offers the simplicity of trading out aligners for a new one every one to two weeks at home with office visits every 8-12 weeks.
Are There Advantages to Using Invisalign Teen®?
Invisalign Teen® allows teenagers to improve the look of their smile permanently, without sacrificing looks now. Our goal is to help teenagers feel their best now and in the future, and Invisalign Teen® is an excellent treatment option with both timeframes in mind.
