At Adelberg Montalvan Pediatric Dental, our mission is to provide exceptional dental care to our patients in a warm and compassionate environment. One of the many services we offer to help teenagers, as well as adults, achieve a straightened smile is Invisalign. This innovative orthodontic treatment offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces, allowing the patient to feel confident throughout the entire process.
Below, we’ll discuss what Invisalign is, when it’s appropriate, how it works, and why it’s an excellent choice for many patients. We’ll also introduce Invisalign Teen—a specialized treatment designed to meet the unique needs of teenagers.

WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?
Invisalign is a groundbreaking orthodontic treatment that utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth. These custom-designed aligners are virtually invisible, making them an appealing option for patients who desire a more discreet method of enhancing their smile. Invisalign can be used to address a wide range of orthodontic issues, such as crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
Catering to the unique needs of our adolescent patients, Invisalign Teen is a specialized treatment designed specifically for teenagers. It offers all the benefits of standard Invisalign, with added features such as eruption tabs to accommodate growing teeth and blue compliance indicators to help teens stay on track with their treatment plan.
Invisalign Teen allows teenagers to maintain their confidence and active lifestyles while undergoing orthodontic treatment. With its discreet appearance and flexibility, Invisalign Teen is an ideal solution for young patients who want to improve their smiles without the hassle and self-consciousness associated with traditional braces.
IS INVISALIGN® RIGHT FOR YOU?
Invisalign is suitable for teenagers and adults who have most or all of their permanent teeth and are experiencing only mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
Our skilled dental professionals will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you. A number of factors need to be taken into account, including the complexity of the case, the patient’s age, and their level of commitment to following the treatment plan.
HOW DOES INVISALIGN® WORK?
The Invisalign treatment process involves the following steps:
- CONSULTATION: Our dental team will assess your teeth and discuss your goals to determine if Invisalign is the best solution for you.
- DIGITAL IMPRESSIONS: We’ll take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create a 3D model of your smile. This model serves as the foundation for designing your custom aligners.
- TREATMENT PLAN: Using advanced software, our dental professionals will map out a precise treatment plan that outlines the movement of your teeth throughout the course of treatment.
- CUSTOM ALIGNERS: You will receive a series of custom-made, clear aligners, each designed to be worn for about two weeks before progressing to the next set in the series.
- PROGRESS MONITORING: You will have regular check-ups with our dental team to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
WHY CHOOSE INVISALIGN®?
Invisalign offers several advantages over traditional braces:
- AESTHETICS: The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to feel more confident and comfortable during treatment.
- REMOVABILITY: Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, making it easier for you to maintain proper oral hygiene.
- COMFORT: The smooth, custom-fit aligners are more comfortable than metal braces, with no wires or brackets to irritate the cheeks and gums.
- PREDICTABILITY: The advanced 3D planning software allows our dental team to provide you with a clear view of your expected results before treatment begins.
