Orthodontic Treatment for Teens in Buckeye, AZ

At Olson Orthodontics, our mission is to help each of our patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that they can enjoy for a lifetime. As a leading orthodontist serving the Litchfield Park, Buckeye, and Verrado, AZ areas, Dr. Chris Olson takes the time to work individually with each patient, designing a customized treatment plan that truly fits their lifestyle. We're proud to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatment options to suit the unique needs of our patients, and now, we're excited to offer a convenient, virtually-invisible alternative to braces for our adolescent orthodontic patients: Invisalign Teen.

What Is Invisalign Teen?

Based on the revolutionary Invisalign System, Invisalign Teen is an alternative treatment option to braces that comes with a number of unique advantages. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign Teen straightens teeth through a series of clear, removable plastic trays, called aligners, that fit directly over the teeth. The aligners are smooth to the touch and made from a transparent plastic material, which means they're nearly impossible to see when worn and easy to pop in and out for things like eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This gives Invisalign a number of unique benefits compared to traditional metal braces:

  • Nearly Invisible: The aligners are almost impossible to see when worn, which means no need to worry about having braces for school pictures, prom, or other milestones.
  • No Dietary Restrictions: Because patients remove the aligners to eat, there are no dietary restrictions – a welcome change when navigating school cafeterias.
  • More Comfortable: The smooth, flat aligners of Invisalign Teen won't cause the tiny cuts and scratches in the mouth that braces do.
  • Easy Oral Hygiene: Invisalign Teen doesn't require special tools like floss threaders, as teens simply remove the aligners to perform oral hygiene.

Custom-Made for the Teenage Lifestyle

The inherent benefits of the Invisalign System already make Invisalign Teen a great option for adolescent patients – but that's not all. Invisalign Teen has been custom-tailored to the teenage lifestyle and comes with a number of features specially made for teens. First, each aligner comes with a built-in compliance indicator that helps teens understand if they're wearing the aligners enough or need to be more diligent. Additionally, we can construct Invisalign Teen aligners with special "eruption tabs" that hold open space for unerupted teeth, allowing us to use Invisalign even if all the permanent teeth haven't grown in yet. And finally, every treatment course comes with 6 free replacement aligners, so there's no need to worry about losing or breaking aligners.

iTero Scanner Means No Messy Impressions

Dr. Olson uses the iTero Scanner to take dental impressions, meaning there’s no messy putty necessary! This tool allows us to quickly and easily take 3D images of your teeth and bite in real time (which also allows us to start your treatment sooner!). The iTero Scanner’s digital precision is even more accurate than old-fashioned putty impressions, so your Invisalign Teen treatment will be even more effective.
