What is Invisalign Teen ®?

Invisalign Teen ® is an alternative treatment option for teenage patients who prefer a discrete way to fix cosmetic dental problems. At Dr. Doug Crosby Orthodontics, we recognize that teenage patients have specific and unique needs, and it’s our goal to meet those needs. We strive to give our teen patients the best possible treatment for them, whether that involves traditional braces, Invisalign Teen®, a retainer, or another orthodontic treatment. If you and your orthodontist decide that Invisalign Teen® is right for you, it can offer you a more comfortable and less obvious method for treating gaps between teeth, misaligned teeth, and other cosmetic dental issues.

Why is Invisalign Teen® used?

We may recommend Invisalign Teen® to our patients who want a discreet way to improve their smile and are suffering from one of the following cosmetic dental problems:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Other alignment or spacing issues

What does getting Invisalign Teen® involve?

The steps of getting Invisalign Teen® are similar to those of Invisalign®, and begin by visiting our Texas orthodontic office for a complimentary Invisalign Teen® consultation. During your visit, you can expect the following:

  • We examine your teeth thoroughly and evaluate your overall oral health.
  • Your orthodontist asks you about your cosmetic dental concerns and determines whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign Teen®.
  • Next, we use the latest Invisalign Teen® technology to take your teeth measurements for your Invisalign Teen® retainer creation.
  • Then, your digital measurements are sent to the Invisalign Teen® lab, where your retainer set is created.
  • Lastly, your orthodontist gives you the newly-created, fully customized retainer aligners for you to wear. We’ll go through exactly what you can expect and how to use the retainers in order to get the best results.
