Invisalign Teen

Are you a teenager or the parent of a teenager looking for a more affordable orthodontic treatment option? If so, you may be interested in Invisalign Teen! Not only is it more affordable than traditional metal braces, but it also is a lot less painful and more convenient.

Invisalign Teen differs from the well know Invisalign treatment only by its compliance assistance program and increased number of complimentary replacement aligners. Compliance assistance is just another name for a system that helps you to remember to wear your trays the proper amount of time a day. It works with a color additive that turns a small dot on the back of the trays from blue to clear to signify they were now worn the proper number of hours. This can be helpful in ensuring compliance of your teen or yourself. The other difference is an increased number of replacement aligners, up to six at no cost! That means don’t worry about misplacing one, you have 6 more!

The best thing about Invisalign Teen though is that it is  only $3,750. There are no hidden fees, it is just a flat $3,750 fee for the complete treatment. In some cases Invisalign Teen corrects teeth substantially faster then traditional braces!

What is Invisalign?

If you have or are thinking about orthodontic treatment then I would assume the word Invisalign has come up at some point or another.

What is Invisalign?

  • Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of customized clear aligners to correct alignment, occlusion, and spacing issues.

Who qualifies for it?

  • Almost everyone; the only requirement is that your teeth are in good oral health. That means no cavities or major restorative issues.

How much does it cost?

  • The Price of Invisalign treatment can vary depending on your prescribed treatment, but on average is  $5000-6000. At Clear Direct Orthodontics, we charge a flat fee of $3,750 for Invisalign Full treatment. There are no additional cost or options that add to the price.

Invisalign or Braces?

In my opinion Invisalign is a much better choice than braces if you are a candidate. The newest version of Invisalign is capable of treating almost 90% of orthodontic cases so don’t be to worried about being a candidate. Invisalign is just as effective as braces and sometimes has been shown to actually work faster than braces. As far as being able to see it, almost no one will ever really know if it is in. People can be sitting 2 foot from you and know you are using Invisalign, but not be sure if the aligners are in or not. That means from 2 foot away it is still completely transparent!

Pros: It is clear – unnoticeable to the naked eye/no brace face pictures, comfortable – no cuts or bleeding, almost painless – it can be a little sore the first few hours after changing aligners, Not lifestyle altering – you can keep eating and living as you did before/ all you have to do is take the aligners out when eating, speed – may be quicker than braces, affordable – you can git it for as little as $3500(braces cost $6000 or more), less visits to the orthodontist – you only have to go ever 6 to 10 weeks.

Cons: Lisp – you may have a lisp for the first week as your tongue is trying to get used to it, attention – everyone when they find out you have it want to see it so you have to keep taking it in and out, removing in public – it is a bit awkward to remove in-fornt of people because your saliva always tries to come out with it.

Overall: It was a better choice for me because I didn’t want to be seen walking around with braces in my 20′s. In addition, all the pros out weighs the cons by a lot. Where if you were to do the same for braces the only pro is it straightens you teeth. Hope this helps and good luck through your orthodontic journey!

How Does Invisalign Work?

As braces become more and more obsolete, Invisalign has become the talk around town. You may wonder, “How is a plastic aligner replacing the methodical movement of the time proven metal brackets and wires?” The answer is Smart Force technology! Align technology, creators of Invisalign, did their own research in biomechanical movement to create a system that uses 3 dimensional forces to strategically shift teeth into alignment.

Smart Force technology is in its fourth phase of application, now able to correct nearly all orthodontic alignment cases. What does that include? It includes everything from overbites to underbites, crossbites, and spacing issues. The newest version of Invisalign uses everything from the original attachment(also known as buttons) system to the new band system that addresses jaw alignment.

If your interest is now peaked, take a look at Clear, Invisalign Specialist, and find out more on what Invisalign has to offer for you.

I Thought Braces Were Metal, Not Plastic!

Did you know a little piece of clear plastic can move crooked and spaced teeth, establish therapeutic occlusion, and gain functional aesthetics? I didn’t! Without being in the loop of dental technology, a piece of plastic is just a piece of plastic.

Let me introduce this little piece of plastic that preforms orthodontic treatment, its name is Invisalign. You may have heard of these clear/removable braces, but you probably have not heard of the huge benefits that Invisalign provides relevant to your overall oral health. Lets also not forget that you will of course end up with a prettier and straighter smile!

If you have good oral health then you probably go to you dental check ups every 6 months and have good at home care. Proper alignment is essential to successful at home care. Why? The less bacteria getting caught in between tight areas, the better periodontal prevention is at home!

I chose to started Invisalign recently and my teeth were “Okay?!” begin with. Today I put in my first aligner and could not be happier. The clarity and strength of the trays gives me so much confidence in its so called “Guaranteed Results.” I can feel my teeth moving already…can’t wait until it’s time to say hello to my perfect smile!
