Invisalign® for Adults and Teens

Orthodontic methods have advanced so far in recent years, and Dr. Vo is pleased to offer her Boerne, TX, area patients with many of these cutting-edge treatments. One example is Invisalign® for adults and teens. These clear, removable braces are an excellent choice for adults and teens who want to align their smiles using a treatment that is not only convenient, but much less noticeable than other methods. In fact, if you choose Invisalign®, no one will ever have to know you’re wearing braces!

How Invisalign® Works

The method involves Dr. Vo providing the patient with a set of custom-made clear plastic aligner trays, which the patient will need to wear for at least 22 hours each day. Unlike some teeth-straightening methods, the aligner trays can be removed for eating meals and brushing/flossing. This eliminates the need to avoid certain foods and also makes it easier to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine, both of which are advantages for patients who choose Invisalign®. Over the course of several months, Dr. Vo will provide a new set of aligners every few weeks. Gradually, during this time period, the patient’s teeth will shift into their new, straighter positions.

What is Different About Invisalign Teen®

Generally speaking, Invisalign Teen® works just the same as Invisalign®, with a few important differences that make this method a great choice for younger patients:

  • Flexibility – Teenage mouths change more than adult mouths do. If new molars erupt after a teen starts wearing the aligner trays, Invisalign Teen® helps to guide the new molars into their perfect locations.
  • Replacements – Teens typically lead busy, active lives, to say the least. That’s why the makers of Invisalign Teen® offer up to six replacement aligner trays at no additional cost.
  • Indicators – It would be easy for some teens to exaggerate how many hours a day they actually wear their aligners. Fortunately, Invisalign Teen® aligner trays include indicators that inform the teens’ parents (and Dr. Vo) whether or not the trays are actually being worn for 22 hours a day.
  • Guiding tooth roots – Invisalign Teen® helps to guide a teen’s tooth roots into the proper location, which is often needed in order to straighten young teeth.
