Invisalign® is often thought of as an adult orthodontic treatment, but that does not mean you have to be over the age of 18 to get it. In fact, Invisalign treatment may be suitable for people as young as 14 or 15 years of age depending on factors such as the level of malocclusion and a patient’s preparedness to follow the Invisalign schedule. The best way to determine if this treatment is right for you is through a one-on-one consultation with Dumont Invisalign dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter.
Invisalign aligner trays are made of a clear, soft plastic. This helps your trays remain nearly unnoticeable while also preventing irritation of sensitive oral tissue and gums. Invisalign trays can be removed for eating and tooth cleaning. This allows you to eat things prohibited by traditional braces and to maintain optimal oral health. However, your trays will need to be worn at all times unless eating or cleaning, requiring a certain level of responsibility to ensure an effective treatment period.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Perlmutter will be happy to answer any Invisalign questions you may have and to help you determine if this treatment is best for your smile.
