Teenagers – imagine achieving an Instagram-worthy smile without needing to wear braces. Yes, it is possible and you can get that smile right here at Clear Orthodontics.
Wondering how? The answer is clear. We use Invisalign and we get great results with these virtually invisible aligners as our Blue Diamond Invisalign provider status indicates.
Invisalign aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment method which can straighten your teeth without using any brackets, archwires or elastic bands. It may sound too good to be true but, believe us, this treatment actually exists.
Invisalign knows teenagers like to play sport, it knows teens play musical instruments, go out on dates and have special occasions to attend like the school prom.
And with Invisalign you don’t have to because instead of the metal wires you wear virtually invisible aligners instead. These look like thin sports mouthguards which fit over your top and bottom teeth. Made from clear plastic, no-one will even be able to tell you’re wearing them.
Every two weeks you need to replace your set of aligners. Each aligner has been custom-made to your teeth so they’re comfortable to wear. You can take them out when playing sport or musical instruments, or for photos, but it’s important you wear them for 20-22 hours each day. You need to for maximum results.
Even though you need to change your aligners every two weeks, this doesn’t mean you need to come in and see us every two weeks. Far from it. We only need to see you once every six to eight weeks. At these appointments we’ll give you enough aligners to last until we see you again.
However, this does mean that in between appointments it’s really important you look after your teeth.

Attention parents – if your teen wants Invisalign, we’re here to assure you that we wouldn’t recommend it as a treatment option if we didn’t believe it could get great results for your teen. Invisalign is as effective as traditional braces and has some major advantages, like enabling your teen to brush and floss their teeth as per normal. Treatment time is usually quicker than traditional metal braces. It’s a win-win.
