Although we believe there’s no shame in any form of orthodontic treatment, we want to offer our teen patients an orthodontic treatment option that empowers them to feel comfortable throughout the smile transformation process! That’s why we offer Invisalign for teens in East Bradenton, Wesley Chapel, North Tampa and South Tampa.
With Invisalign for teens, our orthodontists can treat a number of conditions, from simple spacing to complex bite positions.
The average case with Invisalign will take anywhere from 12 to 18 months to complete. To experience the most effective and efficient treatment period, you must wear your aligners as instructed (for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.) If you don’t wear your Invisalign aligners as frequently as your orthodontist instructs, your treatment period will be longer!
Invisalign for teens also comes with a special compliance feature to ensure effectiveness. These advanced aligners include compliance indicators, a series of blue dots that fade with wear. If your teen is wearing his or her aligners as instructed, these blue dots will fade. If he or she isn’t wearing the aligners at least 20 to 22 hours each day, these blue dots will still be apparent to our orthodontists. These indicators are extremely helpful to us, because if your teen isn’t progressing in their treatment, we can assess these blue dots. This will help us to determine whether we need to make adjustments to his or her treatment plan, or have a conversation about the importance of complying with treatment.
The insight we can gain from these special compliance features is beneficial for your teen, for you, and for us!
At Blue Wave Orthodontics, we make the cost of Invisalign affordable! Parents, you deserve payment plans that meet your financial needs. Teens, you deserve a healthy smile and an orthodontic treatment that doesn’t disrupt your lifestyle.
We offer affordable payment plans, because we believe in high quality orthodontic treatment that suits your budget. We accept a number of insurance plans to help pay for the cost of Invisalign too!
When you visit our Wesley Chapel, Tampa, and East Bradenton locations for you or your teen’s complimentary consultation, we’ll discuss your financial needs to create a payment plan that makes you smile. We want you and your teen to feel excited to start your smile transformation, not stressed over the cost of treatment!
Using iTero scanning technology, our orthodontists will make quick, precise 3-D impressions of your child’s teeth to begin the Invisalign process. These impressions will be used to create their custom treatment plan with Invisalign for Teens.
You’ll receive a set of custom aligners: one for your top teeth and one for your bottom teeth. Every 1 to 2 weeks, your teen will switch out his or her current set of aligners to wear a new set, and every 10 to 12 weeks, you’ll visit our office to receive new sets of aligners.
Each set of Invisalign Teen aligners is custom-made to shift teeth closer to the ideal alignment. Your teen will wear aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.
With every new set of aligners, your teen is one step closer to a beautiful, healthy smile!
