Invisalign Teen in Allentown

Here at Dr. Bob Bryan Orthodontics in Allentown, we know that image is everything. During your child’s teenage years, image is so important.  The thought of having metal brackets and wires constantly attached to the teeth may intensify the already-delicate confidence of today’s teens. The good news is that there is a clear alternative to traditional braces! Dr. Bob Bryan Orthodontics wants to remind you that Invisalign Teen gives your teen a whole new way to wear braces for a “clearly” amazing smile!

How does Invisalign Teen work? Much in the same way as Invisalign, but with a few added characteristics tailored specifically to teenagers’ lifestyles. For instance, Invisalign Teen is designed with “compliance indicators” that fade from dark to light during the two-week period during which that particular tray is used. Once the indicator has faded, teens know to change their Invisalign. For Invisalign Teen,  each aligner comes with up to six free individual replacement aligners in case the original aligner ends up lost or broken, which is another big benefit for the patients here in Allentown!

For Invisalign Teen to be the most effective, the same guidelines for Invisalign should be followed. They are:

Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.

Remove the aligners only to eat, drink, brush and floss.

Wear the clear aligners for at a minimum of 20-22 hours per day

Visit us every 8-10 weeks for an orthodontic check-up. See your dentist every 6 months for regular cleanings

The treatment period for Invisalign Teen varies from nine to 18 months, but can vary depending on each case. If your teen is considering orthodontic treatment, please contact Dr. Bob Bryan Orthodontics in Allentown and we’ll answer any questions you may have about Invisalign Teen. It could be the perfect choice for your teen!
