Invisalign® Teen on the Upper East Side
Invisalign® Teen is here to stay. Teenagers have historically had to wear braces to achieve that perfect smile. Thankfully that has changed and youth as early as 10-11 years old can enjoy orthodontic tooth movement using Invisalign® Teen. No more braces. Not only do young adults go through major body changes through normal growth and development but they also go through difficult times where they are trying to figure out their lives, trying to fit into social environments, possibly needing to wear glasses and many other changes.
Now they can also have their teeth and smile improved by using Invisalign® Teen. Dr. Stoess-Allen will discuss the pros and cons of using either braces or Invisalign® Teen and will help you decide if you are a good candidate to use Invisalign® Teen. Since regular braces can cause some minor mouth pain and discomfort you may be a good candidate to avoid that but still achieve the perfect bite and smile.
Invisalign® Teen is becoming more and more popular every day and for very good reasons. It is simply a more enjoyable process than wearing braces and you can keep your teeth immaculately clean all throughout the process by removing the aligners, and brushing and flossing your teeth. You can also eat any foods that you want and will not ever have to worry about unsightly foods getting stuck that often happens when wearing braces. You will be confident that your teeth look great at all times during the Invisalign® Teen process and people will not even know that you are going through orthodontic treatment since it is virtually invisible.
Invisalign® Teen is the modern day version of orthodontics and Dr. Janet Stoess-Allen is an expert in the product, understanding how to ideally treat nearly every single orthodontic problem that exists. Since the treatment is gradual, the discomfort is minimal but the results are beautiful! You can give Park Avenue Orthodontics and Dr. Stoess-Allen a call today to schedule an appointment to find out if you qualify for Invisalign® Teen. And just like the Invisalign® treatment for adults, you will change your trays every 1-2 weeks until your goals are reached.
Dr. Janet Stoess-Allen and her staff will teach you exactly how to wear your aligners and will send you away from the office with several sets of trays that will be dated so that you know when to move on to the next set and discard the current ones.
On the right: Dr. Janet Stoess-Allen, Orthodontist at Park Avenue Orthodontics in New York City, and her grandson, Daniel, discuss their experience with Invisalign Teen. They explore the misconception that Invisalign clear aligners only work for adults and that the Invisalign brand has successfully treated over one million teens. Additionally, they converse about the pros of Invisalign over braces for teenagers. Among these are the ability for them to remove the aligners to eat and brush their teeth, which cannot be done with braces, as well as giving teens more confidence because the aligners are invisible.
