Invisalign is an alternative to traditional metal braces and recommended for patients between the ages of 35 and 55. We offer Teen Invisalign, but try to counsel parents on the need for their child to wear the trays diligently for them to be effective. If a patient is not compliant with wearing the Invisalign trays for 22 hours a day, the treatment will not be effective. We find most parents choose traditional braces for their teenagers, ensuring compliance is not an issue.
At Wolken Family Dental, we have been treating patients with Invisalign since 2005. Over the years, we have witnessed many advancements since Invisalign first came on the market. Invisalign is a wonderful, effective system capable of treating most alignment issues.
Invisalign trays are tailor-made to snugly fit your teeth. We take custom impressions in-office and send them out for scanning. The customized trays gently shift your teeth and follow with the treatment plan created by your doctor. Invisalign treatments typically last 6-12 months.
Invisalign has become the preferred system to orthodontically treat adults. Invisalign is designed to treat patients efficiently without having to endure unsightly and uncomfortable metal brackets. Straight teeth are wonderful for esthetic purposes, but also offer many other benefits including better periodontal health and less risk of adverse wear or fracture.
