Orthodontic Treatment for Teenagers in Topeka & Lawrence, KS

Invisalign for teens.Everyone deserves a smile they're proud of – and at Hamilton, Wilson, & Hendrickson Orthodontics, our mission is to help you achieve one! We're proud to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments to patients throughout Lawrence, Topeka, and the surrounding communities, and we strive to make treatment as convenient as possible. That's why we're proud to offer our teenage patients one of the most convenient options on the market: Invisalign Teen!

What Is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen is based on the revolutionary Invisalign System. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners instead of brackets and wires to straighten teeth. The aligners are almost impossible to see when worn, and because they're removable, it's easy to take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing – and in addition to these built-in advantages, Invisalign Teen has been specifically designed to suit the teenage lifestyle!

Clear Orthodontic Aligners VideoThe Invisalign Teen treatment process is simple. Instead of braces, your child will wear their clear, removable Invisalign aligners for 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, or floss their teeth. Your teen will wear each set of aligners for 2 weeks before moving to the next pair, and with each new set of aligners, your child's teeth will move closer to their final positions. Throughout the process, we'll bring you in for check-up appointments every six weeks or so. Once your child finishes with their final pair of aligners, they'll have a gorgeous new smile for a lifetime!

What Can Invisalign Teen Treat?

Thanks to advancements in the technology, Invisalign is now a remarkably versatile treatment. We can use Invisalign Teen to correct any of the following issues:

  • Crowded Teeth
  • Overbite (the top front teeth extend too far over the lower teeth)
  • Underbite (the lower front teeth cover the upper teeth)
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Crossbite (the lower teeth close outside the upper teeth)

Invisalign Teen vs. Traditional Braces

Traditional metal braces are still the most popular treatment we offer, and they offer a reliable, cost-effective option for many patients – but when it comes to convenience, Invisalign Teen is hard to beat. Here's how Invisalign Teen stacks up against traditional braces:

Metal Braces

  • Very visible from the outside
  • Must avoid eating hard, gooey, sticky, or crunchy foods
  • More difficult to brush and floss teeth
  • Can cause small cuts and sores in the mouth

Invisalign Teen

  • Almost impossible to detect when worn – no braces for prom or school pictures!
  • Easy to remove aligners to eat, requiring no dietary modifications
  • Smooth surface for improved comfort
  • Built-in compliance indicators that show if the aligners are being worn long enough
  • 6 free replacement aligners with each treatment course
