Invisalign® Teen in Duncanville and Grand Prairie
Here at Henderson Orthodontics, we are proud to offer Invisalign Teen®.
For many, the teen years are a signifier of many changes. While you may grow in size or update your clothing style, one of the most significant changes you can make during this time is improving your smile.
At Henderson Orthodontics, we offer a discreet way to straighten your smile with our Invisalign® for teens. This transparent plastic alignment system is as fast and effective as braces. There are some minor differences from Invisalign® for adults to fit the needs of our growing patients. Dr. Henderson has extensive Invisalign® experience to help your teen's smile shine.
Is Your Teen a Good Fit for Invisalign?
is a popular option among many teens due to its ability to straighten teeth subtly. Before your teen starts their Invisalign®
treatment, there are a few factors to consider, such as:
- The current condition of their teeth.
- The treatment level needed.
- Abnormalities in their bone or jaw structure.
is a huge responsibility for many teens. They must wear their retainers for over 20 hours each day and take the aligners out for eating and drinking without losing or misplacing them. If you feel your teen is not ready for this responsibility, you may consider a treatment option such as traditional braces.
How Invisalign Teen Works
Your teen will receive a custom-fitted clear plastic aligner from Dr. Henderson. After a few weeks, your teen's teeth will shift into position, and they will receive a new aligner to help their teeth continue to move into place. Once your teen's teeth reach a proper alignment, they will receive a retainer to ensure their teeth remain in position once treatment is complete.
While the treatment process is largely the same, there are two minor differences between Invisalign®
for teens and adults. These differences are:
- Compliance indicators: The aligners for Invisalign® for teens have a blue dot on the side, changing to a white or clear color over time. This compliance indicator allows Dr.Henderson to verify that your teen is wearing their aligner as intended.
- More replacement trays: Since your teen is more active, they will receive additional replacement trays to keep their treatment on track if they lose or break an aligner.
