Up to 2X Faster
If you’re looking for a straighter, stronger, and healthier smile without the discomfort of metal braces, then Invisalign could be for you. Our patented SmartTrack® material offers precision treatment and predictable results. Plus, it’s practically invisible, so your friends probably won’t even notice it.
Your teen will love this quick and comfortable treatment. And you won’t have to worry about bringing your teen to the dentist’s office for weekly appointments because Invisalign aligners never need tightening. Instead, Invisalign produces superior results by gradually shifting your teeth to the proper alignment using a series of custom-made aligners.
We’ll Fix Your Smile Without Metal Braces
Invisalign can repair a variety of dental issues, including:
When the upper teeth close over the lower teeth.
when the lower teeth close over the upper teeth.
when the jaws don’t line up.
when there are large spaces between teeth.
when the top and bottom teeth don’t meet.
when there isn’t enough room to fit all of your teeth naturally.
Effective Treatment, Faster Results
At Alpha Dental, Dr. Maya Assi uses the iTero Element® scanner to create a 3D digital image of your teeth. Using this data, Dr. Assi will customize each set of clear aligners.
Invisalign aligners provide pressure in the right places to gradually fix your smile. Your individualized treatment plan from Dr. Assi is the key to a fast and effective course of treatment.
The Invisalign system allows you to see what the final results will look like in advance. This is a great benefit for your teen because it helps them visualize successful treatment, and it provides them with the opportunity to reach that goal by simply following Dr. Assi’s instructions.
Comfort, Freedom, and the Smile You Deserve
One of the most beneficial aspects of Invisalign treatment is its easy removal and application. Have a soccer practice? Dinner with a classmate? No problem. With Invisalign, no matter what activity your teen has planned, they can simply remove their aligners and replace them afterward.
We recommend that your teen wear their aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day. Beyond that, your teen can utilize the remaining time to eat, drink, and perform certain activities without them.
If you’re concerned that your teen might forget to replace their Invisalign® aligners, we’ve got that covered. Thanks to our patented blue dot indicator, you can easily monitor how long your teen has been wearing their aligners.
Standard metal braces require frequent office visits for maintenance, hygiene, and regular tightening. But with Invisalign, we generally schedule an appointment once every six to eight weeks.
During these visits, Dr. Assi will provide your new set of aligners. She’ll also track your progress and adjust your treatment plan when necessary.
Invisalign eliminates the threat of detached brackets and broken wires, so you won’t need to worry about the emergency visits that can happen with metal braces. That means less time spent in our office and more time enjoying the essential things in life.
Stay Active, Smile on the Go
As long as you wear your aligners daily and remember to remove them before eating or drinking, there are no restrictions with Invisalign treatment. We’ll revitalize your smile without any of the hassles associated with metal braces.
From our advanced technology to your teen’s individual treatment plan, every aspect of the Invisalign process is designed to provide outstanding comfort and convenience for your child.
The self-confidence that comes with a beautiful smile is a wonderful gift you can give your teen. Choose Invisalign today.
Frequently Asked Questions
What age is appropriate for Invisalign?
Invisalign is designed for people of all ages. There are different types of aligners for those in different stages of life, such as Invisalign Teen. Regular Invisalign aligners are designed for adult mouths, but Invisalign Teen can treat teen-specific orthodontic issues.
There’s no upper age limit to Invisalign, but treatment can’t be started until all permanent teeth have grown in. This usually occurs around the age of 12 or 13. There may be some options available for early treatment and prevention in some cases.
What are the cons of Invisalign?
There aren’t many cons to Invisalign because there are many advantages to invisible aligners. They’re fully removable, meaning you can more easily clean your teeth and you can eat anything you want.
The main cons of Invisalign can include that they can’t treat all orthodontic issues. There are limits to how far aligners can move your teeth. That means not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign treatment. You’ll learn if you fall into this category at your consultation.
Another con of Invisalign is that you need to be self-motivated for treatment to work. While traditional braces are attached to your teeth, Invisalign can be removed. But you’ll need to remember to keep them in for 20 to 22 hours a day.
Are Invisalign braces good for teenagers?
Yes, Invisalign is a great option for many teenagers. While metal braces are common during teenage years, invisible aligners can empower your teen to be more confident and social. This can help them achieve more while in school and enjoy success.
It’s easier to play sports when you can remove your aligners. Traditional braces can’t be removed and can cause injury during physical activities. After practice or after the big game, they’ll just have to remember to put the aligners back in.
Which is faster, braces or Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is generally faster than traditional braces. On average, Invisalign takes about half the time of regular braces. This is because braces can only move teeth by pushing on some surfaces, while Invisalign can push on all surfaces of the teeth.
Of course, how long your Invisalign treatment takes depends on your adherence to the treatment plan. If you wear your aligners for the recommended 20 to 22 hours a day, your treatment will stay on track and you’ll be done quickly.
How long your treatment takes depends on your individual needs. At your consultation, Dr. Maya Assi can let you know approximately how long your treatment will take.
