Invisalign Teen

Revolutionising orthodontics, Invisalign can help your child maintain their confidence throughout treatment!

At Newwave Orthodontics we understand that growing up is difficult enough without having to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment! In response to this, our own Dr Peter Miles became one of the very first providers of Invisalign in Queensland, and is now a Platinum Provider of Invisalign so your child can experience the best care and a beautiful smile without the need for braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment that uses clear aligners instead of traditional braces. These aligners are custom made to your child’s mouth for total comfort and optimal results. While worn, Invisalign aligners will exert gentle pressure onto the teeth and gradually move them to their desired position. Every two weeks these aligners will need to be changed over, and Dr Miles will provide you with your child’s aligner trays in advance to help streamline this process.

The benefits of Invisalign

  • Comfortable
  • Removable
  • Lifestyle-friendly
  • Virtually invisible

For an enhanced treatment, we also offer Invisalign TEEN

Depending on your budget, both Invisalign and Invisalign TEEN are suitable for enhancing your child’s smile. The advantages of Invisalign TEEN include:

  • Compliance indicators – so you can remain on top of your child’s treatment and whether they are complying with treatment effectively
  • Accommodates partially erupted teeth – this means these aligners are more comfortable for your child

Why Invisalign TEEN?

Invisalign TEEN is a branch of Invisalign treatment that is suited to adolescents, as this form of Invisalign caters for teeth that are partially erupted or are yet to erupt so treatment is more comfortable and your child’s dental development can continue as it naturally would.

While Invisalign can generally be used for both teens and adults, there are some instances where Dr Peter Miles will recommend your child use Invisalign TEEN. These include:

  • If your child has any teeth that have not yet erupted
  • If your child has teeth that have partially erupted
  • If you feel your child will not be very compliant with regular Invisalign treatment

Invisalign TEEN is a great tool for parents, as this Invisalign system has compliance indicators, so you can stay on top of your child’s progress and ensure they are wearing it as often as they should! Invisalign TEEN also accommodates partial interrupted teeth, so your child’s smile can continue to develop naturally whilst undergoing treatment.

If you are unsure which option best suits your budget and your child, Dr Miles is happy to discuss these treatments in depth with you.
