Everything You Need To Know About Invisalign Teen

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on May 2, 2019

Invisalign Teen is a great orthodontic option for teenagers looking for a straighter smile without having to wear metal braces. While Invisalign Teen may look like a retainer, this treatment moves your teeth rather than holding them in place.

Your orthodontist will design a treatment plan and then get Invisalign to create your aligners for you. Your London Invisalign Teen treatment plan will last up to 24 months and then, you’ll have to wear a retainer, just like you would after having traditional braces

What Issues Can Invisalign Teen Address?

Invisalign Teen on Harley Street can’t treat all orthodontic issues. For example, if you have a severe overbite, you may have to go through pre-treatment before qualifying. Despite needing pre-treatment, Invisalign Teen can treat the majority of cases, some of which include:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Overcrowding
  • Gaps between teeth

Depending on the severity of your condition, you may have to go through further treatment. However, this is only applicable to very severe cases and would be the same situation if you were to go for braces.

The Benefits of Invisalign Teen

When it comes to Invisalign Teen at our London orthodontist’s office, there are dozens of benefits. Dr Chaw Su Kyi has experience treating teenagers with Invisalign. She’s been recognized by Invisalign itself and approved as a Teen Invisalign Provider. Here are some of the many benefits her patients’ experience:

Non-Invasive

Whether you’re going to the cinema, taking a date out for dinner, or hanging out with friends, you’ll no longer have to feel self-conscious. This is because Invisalign Teen aligners are clear, thus making them near invisible. With these aligners, you can rest assured that you’re not showing a mouthful of metal braces.

Furthermore, the blue dot technology tells you when it’s time to change your Invisalign braces. Thanks to this technology, you don’t have to keep track of your treatment. Instead, you can proceed with your day-to-day while also following the plan that your doctor created for you.

Convenient and Flexible

Invisalign Teen braces at our London office are made of smooth comfortable plastic and are removable. With this in mind, you can eat whatever you want. All you have to do is take them out before you eat. You must also take them out before you brush your teeth.

This flexibility makes cleaning your aligners much easier. You no longer have to worry about food getting caught in your metal braces. You can also play your favourite musical instrument and be part of any school sports team you want without any limitations.

Invisalign Teen Costs

Invisalign Teen at our Harley Street office doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. While the price of treatment does vary from one patient to another, you can expect to pay between £2,500 and £5,000. The exact costs of your Invisalign Teen treatment will depend on the following:

  • The length of your treatment
  • The provider and orthodontist you work with
  • The complexity of your condition and teeth alignment

The best way to get an exact quote for your treatment is to contact your Harley Street orthodontist directly and book an initial consultation.
