Invisalign Teen


Teens in Raleigh don’t have to worry about embarrassing metal braces in their yearbook photos or Facebook profiles thanks to Invisalign teen.

 Invisalign® Teen is the clear solution to straighten teeth without metal braces. The Invisalign inv_RGB_lrg_teenTeen aligners are removable and clear, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. The simple treatment straightens teeth using a series of whitening-like trays to incrementally move the teeth. The clear aligners allow teenagers to straighten their teeth without unpleasant braces.

How does Invisalign Teen work?

Young patient, depending of the severity of their condition, wear a set of clear aligners for 15-18 months on average. Patients go through an average of 30 aligners during treatment that change every two weeks. Invisalign Teen trays can be removed when eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. With time the patient’s teeth progressively move. The teen only has to visit the dentist every 4-6 weeks.

Invisalign Teen can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, which, in the past, were usually treated with traditional braces. These conditions include:

  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

The Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same Invisalign technology used for adult Invisalign full, but Invisalign Teen has been engineered with a feature to help prevent over eruption of the second molars and preserve space for erupting adult teeth.

Benefits of Invisalign Teen:

  • Very clear, inconspicuous aligners
  • No braces, bands, wires, or other orthodontic appliances required
  • Short appointment times

The greatest benefit of Invisalign is that it provides a beautiful, more flexible way to give teenagers the confidence of a great smile. At Galligan Family Dentistry we are very excited to provide cosmetic procedures that are truly in line with our minimally invasive treatment philosophy.
