For our young patients who prefer a virtually-invisible orthodontic treatment, we offer Invisalign for teens at our Longwood and Lake Mary orthodontist offices! We know that all of our patients have different needs with different preferences—especially our teen patients. At Wiewiora & Dunn Orthodontics, it’s our goal to accommodate our patients’ various needs, goals, preferences and lifestyles!
Why Invisalign for teens?
This advanced clear braces technology is ideal for teens, because it’s removable, comfortable, highly-effective, and aesthetically appealing!
Invisalign empowers teens to straighten their teeth in confidence. No matter what your busy schedule holds, these clear aligners work invisibly, day and night, to reposition your bite and align your teeth for a beautiful and healthy smile.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can be removed regularly to clean! You’ll be able to soak and rinse your aligners frequently to prevent bacteria buildup. You’ll also remove your aligners to brush your teeth, floss your teeth, eat, and drink anything besides water. Food won’t get stuck between your teeth, and there won’t be any brackets or wires in the way of your toothbrush or floss.
You can continue playing sports, playing musical instruments, performing on stage or presenting in front of your peers without anyone spotting your orthodontic treatment!
Conditions Treated with Invisalign Teen
With Invisalign Teen, we can treat a wide range of orthodontic conditions, from crooked teeth to complex bite misalignments!
- Crooked teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Poor bite conditions (overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite)
- Gapped teeth
- Teeth spacing
We often use Invisalign attachments during the Invisalign process to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of treatment. Invisalign attachments are tiny, tooth-colored shapes that apply strategic pressure to individual teeth to promote quicker movement. Learn more about these specialized Invisalign attachments!
Special Invisalign Teen Features
Invisalign Teen invisible braces come with special compliance indicators that help you, your parents and our orthodontists to see how often you’re wearing your aligners. Clear aligners need to be worn 20 to 22 hours each day for them to be as effective as possible!
These modern clear aligners also include “eruption tabs” that hold space for molars that haven’t developed yet to emerge!
How much does Invisalign for teens cost?
Invisalign is affordable with us! We’re proud to offer competitive teenage Invisalign costs, due to our affordable payment plans. Choose from 0% interest in-house financing, or outside financing with CareCredit or Lending Point. We accept more HMO and PPO dental insurance plans and credit card payment with Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Discover.
At your teen’s complimentary consultation, we’ll examine his or her smile to develop a personalized treatment plan. We’ll work out an affordable payment plan that helps you cover your teenage Invisalign costs.
How long does Invisalign take?
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. You will keep your aligners in place for at least 20 to 22 hours a day. (If you don’t wear your aligners as frequently as your orthodontist instructs, your treatment period will be longer.)

How does Invisalign Teen work?
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 Teen.
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!
