Invisalign Find out how Invisalign could be the answer to your teen’s straighter smile.

Are you a teenager who is desperately looking for a way to straighten your smile without everyone noticing? Are crooked teeth a source of embarrassment? Do you hate the idea of sporting metal brackets on your teeth just to get the smile you want? Well now you can rest easier because your Orlando dentist Dr. Marcia Martinez offers Invisalign, the clear way to get the smile you want more discreetly. Find out if this orthodontic treatment is right for you or your teen:

Is Invisalign right for my teenager?

This is a very important question, and while your Orlando dentist can certainly look at your teen's smile to determine whether Invisalign can help, there are also certain things that both you and your teen need to think about before deciding if this type of orthodontic treatment is ideal:

Conditions: What dental problem is your teen looking to correct? While Invisalign can treat a variety of conditions, from mild to serious, there are certain complex issues that traditional braces might handle better. If your teen is looking to fix any of these problems then it’s time to consult with your Orlando dentist:

  • Overbite or underbite
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Crooked teeth

Finances: How will you pay for Invisalign? Will your insurance cover all or some of the expenses? If you are concerned about how to pay for this treatment we would be happy to work with you any way possible. Feel free to ask your Orlando dentist about payment options to help make Invisalign Teen more affordable.

Discipline: Just because Invisalign is removable doesn’t mean this privilege should be abused. The more often those aligners stay in their mouth the faster their treatment will be. Aligners should be worn between 20 to 22 hours out of the day and swapped out every two weeks for a new set of aligners. Luckily Invisalign Teen has a special way to keep teens accountable for wearing their braces. Each aligner has a blue indicator that fades over time when worn the appropriate amount. This way your Orlando orthodontist can tell if your teen isn't complying with their treatment.
