Invisalign Teen

Quality Orthodontic Treatment in Heath, OH

At Wigal Orthodontics, we're passionate about helping our patients achieve beautiful, healthy, straight smiles. Dr. Wigal and our team of highly trained orthodontic specialists work hard to get to know every patient on an individual basis, designing personalized treatment plans that perfectly suit each patient's unique orthodontic needs. We strive to make orthodontic care convenient for our patients, which is why we offer Invisalign, a popular alternative treatment to braces – and now, there's a form of Invisalign made just for teens!

Invisible Braces for Teens

Invisalign Teen is based off the Invisalign System, a revolutionary alternative to braces that uses clear, removable plastic aligners to straighten teeth instead of metal wires and brackets. Invisalign is virtually invisible when worn and can be popped in and out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. This means no one has to know you're straightening your teeth, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods, and maintaining oral hygiene - something critical for orthodontic treatment - is as easy as ever!

But Invisalign Teen comes with a number of other advantages perfectly suited to the teenage lifestyle. Each aligner comes with a built-in Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which signals to parents, doctors, and patients themselves if the aligners are being worn long enough or if the patient needs to be a little more diligent. Plus, each Invisalign Teen treatment course comes with 6 free replacement aligners, so there's no need to worry if any are lost or broken.

With Invisalign Teen, there's no more worrying about having braces for prom, school pictures, or any other important social event. Now you can get a beautiful, healthy new smile – invisibly!

What Is Invisalign Teen?

  • A clear way to straighten teeth without metal wires and brackets.
  • A series of clear, removable aligners custom-made for comfort.
  • No conspicuous, sharp metalwork.
  • Smooth, custom-made material ensures optimal comfort.

How Does It Work?

  • During your orthodontic evaluation, we'll create a fully realized 3D model of your mouth.
  • We use that model to create a detailed treatment plan.
  • Based on that plan, we have your own set of Invisalign Teen aligners custom-manufactured for you.
  • Wear each set of aligners 20-22 hours a day for 2 weeks.
  • Take them out only to brush, floss, eat, and drink.
  • With each new set of aligners, your teeth move closer to a new smile.
  • Come in for an appointment every 8-10 weeks.
  • Treatment generally lasts 6-15 months.

What Can Invisalign Teen Treat?

nvisalign used to be available only for a select number of mild orthodontic conditions, but thanks to new advances in the technology, we can now use it to treat a wide range of conditions. With Invisalign Teen, we can treat:

  • Overcrowding
  • Spacing Issues
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps in Teeth
  • Crooked Teeth
