At Moore Orthodontics, we take pride in making high quality orthodontic care as convenient as possible for our patients. Dr. Moore and our highly trained team of orthodontic specialists work hard to get to know all our patients individually, designing specialized treatment plans that perfectly suit their unique orthodontic needs. We strive to use only the latest in cutting-edge orthodontic technology in our office, which is why we're proud to offer our patients Invisalign® Teen - a form of Invisalign treatment that's been specifically designed to suit the teenage lifestyle.

A Clear Alternative for Teenagers

Worried about being voted “Most Likely to Set Off a Metal-Detector” in your school yearbook? Fear not. Moore Orthodontics has an orthodontic treatment solution that'll straighten your teeth without the extra hardware – Invisalign Teen!

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment that can be used as a substitute to traditional metal braces. Instead of using a system of wires and brackets, it utilizes different sets of clear, customized aligners that slide over your teeth much like sport mouth guards, only far less bulky and noticeable. In fact, the aligners are designed to be basically invisible, thus keeping your smile bright, white, and confident - and the aligners' flexible plastic material makes wearing them more comfortable than wearing traditional braces, too!

While this used to be reserved for minor malocclusions, advances in the technology now let us treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced-out teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites

What the Process Will Look Like

During your evaluation with Moore Orthodontics, we’ll perform a thorough diagnosis of your teeth and mouth. We'll use this information to create a series of clear, removable aligners custom-made for you. You'll wear each set all day, every day (except for when eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing) for approximately two weeks before moving on to a new set. With each new set of aligners, your teeth will gradually move closer to the correct position.

During your treatment (which lasts on average 6-15 months), you will visit us in either our Bala Cynwyd or Mt. Airy office every 8-10 weeks. On average, a patient will receive anywhere between 18 and 30 aligners.

Other Advantages

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can take them out for prom, school pictures, and other important social events. The best part? Since you can take out Invisalign aligners when you eat, there's no need to give up certain foods like you would with braces ribs, corn-on-the-cob, etc.) - so you can keep eating all your favorite foods!

Custom-Designed for Teenagers

Unlike traditional Invisalign, Invisalign Teen aligners have a “Blue Dot Indicator” that shows how long each aligner has been worn, allowing doctors, teens, and parents to keep track. Invisalign Teen treatment also comes with six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken. Furthermore, these aligners are specially designed to accommodate mouths that are still growing.
