Not every teenager wants or needs full metal braces. As an alternative, Invisalign offers a more discreet look with as much effectiveness as braces.
Invisalign is like a retainer that uses translucent, incremental aligners to regulate teeth. Invisalign is a modern approach to smooth down teeth, using custom-made sequences of aligners produced just for your teenager.
At Grace and Bowman Orthodontics – with offices in Fort Walton Beach and Niceville, Fla. – we offer Invisalign as a safe and simple alternative to braces. Invisalign Teen offers the freedom to eat and drink, with the subtly of a clear retainer that is virtually invisible. Contact Grace and Bowman Orthodontics today to see if Invisalign Teen is the right solution for you or your teenager.
Invisalign offers a range of treatment options for young people. The excessive benefit of Invisalign is that it provides a more flexible way to straighten teeth. Invisalign aligners are comfortable, detachable and nearly undetectable, so teenagers can enjoy life without the frustration, restraints and self-consciousness frequently associated with metal braces.
Invisalign retainers are removable, so teens can brush and floss as they normally would. Unlike braces, where food and plaque can accumulate, with Invisalign you can keep your teeth clean without the hassle of brackets or wires.
The Invisalign treatment process involves taking a mold of the patient’s teeth that is scanned in order to create a hi-tech model. With our treatment plan that will be designed specifically for each patient, the molds are formed in stages to align with the current and desired teeth positions.
Each aligner will progressively and softly shift your teeth into the desired position over time. There are no metal braces or brackets to fasten, and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a fresh set of aligners about every two weeks until treatment ends. You will get the perfect, award-winning smile you want, with virtually no effort. The best part is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
Average treatment time for Invisalign is only about six to 15 months, depending on the patient. Your teeth will move gradually each week, and we’ll schedule orthodontist visits every four to eight weeks. Invisalign is a comfortable and easy solution that is great for teens.
If you’re ready to get the smile you’ve always wanted, contact Grace and Bowman Orthodontics to see if Invisalign is right for you. We will help you choose the right treatment plan to fit your needs.
