If you think orthodontic treatment
should be easy, you’re right!
It can be with Invisalign
Invisalign works for younger children (7-10 years of age) and teens too
Making braces more manageable for all those selfies!
Invisalign has treatment options for children as young as 7 to teens, making it possible for them to enjoy life without the restrictions, irritation and self-consciousness associated with the metal brackets and wires of conventional braces. The assessment and fitting process is identical to that used for adult Invisalign patients.
While Invisalign has the potential to be as effective for teenagers as conventional braces, some parents may be concerned their child may not wear the aligners as prescribed. To address this, Invisalign Teen aligners have a wear indicator that fades from blue to clear over time, helping Dr Sarah (and parents and patients) gauge wear time.
How Invisalign works
Through an initial consultation, Dr Sarah will determine if Invisalign is a suitable treatment pathway for you. If it is, we map out an Invisalign treatment pathway for you.
The next steps are simple.
We take a scan of your teeth and send these to the Invisalign laboratories. A virtual Invisalign treatment plan will be designed by Dr Sarah.
Your aligners - the clear plastic appliances used to straighten your teeth - are fabricated especially for you. At your follow up appointment, we fit the aligners and take you through everything you need to know to create your best smile.
