Invisalign® Teen Hartford County, CT

What is invisalign Teen?

Teenagers can be quite particular about their physical appearance so conventional metal braces might not be the ideal orthodontic therapy for them. That is the reason why Rosenberg Orthodontics provides Invisalign treatment for teens in Hartford County, CT. Similar to the adult model, Invisalign Teen aligners can efficiently and safely correct the alignment and position of an individual's teeth in around 1 – 2 years using removable aligners. Unlike the adult version, Invisalign Teen aligners have eruption tabs, compliance indicators, and substitute aligners. If your teenager is worried about metal braces, then schedule an appointment at Rosenberg Orthodontics in Hartford County to get more information on Invisalign Teen.

What Makes Invisalign Teen Different?

What sets Invisalign Teen aligners apart from Invisalign? A number of our patients are concerned about giving their teenager responsibility of costly aligners during their orthodontic therapy. Orthodontics for teens are a big investment in money and time, and our team is understanding of these factors with adolescent patients. There are three specific features to Invisalign Teen clear aligners that ensure your Hartford County, CT adolescent receives a straight smile:

  • Compliance indicators: There is a small area on the rear portion of the aligners that fades with usage. This allows your Invisalign dentist to have the ability to know if your teenager is not using the aligners enough or whether they are using them at all. This can keep the younger patients accountable for using their aligners 20 – 22 hours daily and keep them on schedule. Non-compliance problems mean your teenager is going to be in therapy for a prolonged amount of time.
  • Eruption tabs: The manufacturers of Invisalign Teen know that not all of our teenage patients may have their third molars or "wisdom teeth." Therefore, they have designed the aligners to have eruption tabs that make space for your third molars. This is so they can develop in the correct location without crowding the other teeth. The standard Invisalign does not have this feature.
  • Extra replacement aligners: We expect accidents and missing aligners to happen so we add six substitute aligners in your adolescent's treatment program. Accidents occur and we can sometimes misplace items so call our office in the event you have any issues or require a replacement.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Teen?

There are several benefits of clear aligners for teens. Some of the most common benefits include:

  • Less irritating than traditional metal braces
  • Oral hygiene is more easily maintained without the hassle of brackets and wires
  • Fewer orthodontic emergencies
  • Clear aligners can be easily removed
  • No dietary restrictions such as popcorn or corn on the cob
  • Just as effective as traditional braces

Who should get invisalign teen?

There are several factors that could make your teen an ideal candidate for Invisalign teeth. Ideal candidates typically have one or more of the following:

  • An overbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps
  • Crowded teeth

Invisalign Teen treatments are especially valuable for teenagers who are active in athletics or the arts. Metal braces may be harmful during contact sports or can even make it challenging to play an instrument. We will conduct a comprehensive assessment and talk about all of the orthodontic treatments that might be appropriate for your teen.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rosenberg for a couple years now and done with my treatment. He is the best, very personable and knowledgeable . I was so apprehensive about my invisilign treatment to start with.He patiently walked me through the treatment and in every step gave me confidence and explained everything in detail. I am super happy with the results i have acheived. He wants to give you perfect end result and does not compromise on the treatment. Anybody else would have said you are done after 18 months, mine went longer because he wanted it took look perfect. Excellent staff, professional and very kind and super helpful . I would highly recommend Dr Rosenberg and his team to anyone that is looking for orthodontist care .

What is getting invisalign teen like?

Your teenager will have a consultation with one of our Invisalign dentists to talk about treatment objectives, how they feel about using an orthodontic aligner, and what is to be anticipated through the correction phase (normally 1 – 2 years, but this may differ with each individual patient). To begin the therapy, we will require multiple scans from various angles and take an impression of their teeth. Acrylic aligners will be produced using the impressions and images, which can be customized to fit your teenager's teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the Invisalign clear aligners different for Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign clear aligners for teens are slightly different from those for adults. Invisalign Teen aligners include features such as compliance indicators, which fade with wear time to help teens track their usage, and eruption tabs, which accommodate the growth of new teeth. Additionally, Invisalign Teen treatment typically includes replacement aligners, addressing the likelihood of aligner loss or damage common among younger patients. Overall, Invisalign Teen is tailored to the unique needs and lifestyle of teenagers undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Are there any sports or activity restrictions with Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen allows for more flexibility in sports and activities compared to traditional braces, as the aligners can be removed during such activities. However, it is recommended to wear a protective mouthguard while participating in contact sports to prevent damage to the aligners and teeth.

How do I clean my Invisalign Teen clear aligners?

We recommend cleaning your clear aligners with warm water and the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals, or a different cleaning tablet, to scrub and rinse your aligners. It is possible for your aligners to become stained, so it is important to always brush your teeth after you eat before putting your aligners back in.

What should teens not do when undergoing Invisalign treatment?

Teens undergoing Invisalign treatment should be mindful of certain actions to ensure the success of their orthodontic journey. Here's what they should avoid:

  • Not wearing the aligners for the recommended duration each day, as consistency is crucial for effective treatment progress.
  • Eating or drinking anything besides water while wearing the aligners to prevent damage, staining, or warping.
  • Chewing gum or consuming sticky foods that can damage the aligners or affect their fit.
  • Smoking or using tobacco products, which can stain the aligners and compromise oral health.
  • Neglecting proper oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing after meals, to maintain dental health throughout treatment.
Are Invisalign Teen treatments less than regular Invisalign treatments?

In terms of effectiveness and treatment quality, Invisalign Teen treatments are comparable to regular Invisalign treatments. However, there may be slight differences in the features and benefits offered with Invisalign Teen, which can affect the overall cost. Factors such as additional aligners for replacements (in case of loss or damage), compliance indicators to track wear time, and specific treatment plans tailored to adolescent dental development may contribute to potential variations in cost compared to regular Invisalign treatments.

How do you care for invisalign teen aligners?

Patients will need follow-up visits every 2 – 4 weeks. At these appointments, your Invisalign dentist will substitute their aligners, monitor their improvement, and evaluate how well they are using them. Invisalign Teen aligners have compliance indicators, which can inform us if your teenager is using the aligners every day. This will hold your teenager accountable for using their aligners for most of their day (20 – 22 hours). Remember, your teenager will have the ability to floss and brush without the barrier of braces. Invisalign Teen orthodontics will have to be taken out before eating, and it's a good habit to ensure that the mouth is clean before putting the aligners back in position.

Does insurance cover invisalign teen?

Orthodontic treatments, like Invisalign Teen treatments, might be paid in part by insurance. Our staff can get in touch with your insurer to determine your benefits and figure out your out-of-pocket costs. If you are not using insurance, we can discuss payments we take, such as medical financing.
