What Is Invisalign Teen Bergen County?
Invisalign Teen is a series of clear aligners made of multiple layers of medical-grade plastic with round edges. The treatment has been available since 2008, ten years after the introduction of the original Invisalign in 1998. Invisalign Teen serves as an alternative to traditional braces for patients who desire a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment so you can smile in school photographs without feeling self-conscious.
How Does Invisalign Teen Work?
Invisalign Teen works by gradually shifting your teeth into alignment over time to fix a variety of teeth and jaw misalignments, including underbite, overbite, open bite, crossbite, gaps between teeth, crookedness, and overcrowding. Dr. Adam Schulhof, a pediatric orthodontist, will thoroughly examine your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment.
A digital scan of your teeth helps us create custom aligners just for you. Patients wear the aligners for 22 hours every day and switch to a new set every two weeks. This is how the aligners maintain pressure on your teeth to shift them into place. Think of each new set of aligners like a tightening of the archwire for braces, only without having to visit the dentist.
How Long Does Invisalign Teen Take?
The length of treatment depends on several factors, including the severity of your misalignment, how well you take care of your teeth, and how consistently you wear the aligners. Typically, treatment lasts between 12-18 months.
The Benefits Of Invisalign Teen
The good thing about Invisalign Teen is that the aligners work similarly to braces, only without the hardware that would have to be bonded to your teeth. This innovative orthodontic appliance has many additional benefits.
The aligners are removable, which means you can take them out to brush your teeth and eat.
The aligners are clear, providing a virtually invisible treatment that even your friends and family may not notice.
- No Dietary Restrictions
While braces require dietary restrictions, you can eat whatever you want with Invisalign Teen because the aligners are removable.
- Easy To Clean
Invisalign Teen is also easier to clean because you can remove the aligners to do so. There’s even a variety of cleaning methods and cleaning products available.
Invisalign Teen vs Invisalign For Adults
Both treatments are virtually the same, only with two minor differences. Invisalign Teen comes with extra aligners because teens are more likely to lose or damage them. But the best feature of Invisalign Teen is a blue dot on the aligners that fades away the more you wear them. A visible dot serves as a reminder to wear your aligners more and offers parents a way to check their teen’s progress and consistency.
The cost of Invisalign Teen Bergen County NJ is between $3,500 and $8,000 depending on the severity of your misalignment. KinderSmiles accepts all major credit cards and most insurance providers. We also offer affordable monthly payment plans.
