Invisalign Experts in Bowling Green, KY | Russellville KY, | Portland, TN | White House, TN
Dr. Wiesemann is a Platinum Invisalign Provider, based on his skill and expertise using the system to straighten teeth.
Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teens because Invisalign doesn't use brackets, wires and bands like traditional braces. At your first free consultation, Dr. Wiesemann will be able to determine if Invisalign for Teens is the best option for your unique smile.
The Invisalign for Teens aligners are made of clear plastic and are almost invisible. Your friends probably won't even know you're wearing them. Instead of sporting metal braces, Wiesemann Orthodontic's Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day.
You probably have friends with braces who aren't allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign for Teens, the aligners are completely removable, so you can eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want.
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to their final positions.
You'll visit us about once every six-eight weeks to make sure your treatment is going as planned. The average treatment time is nine to 15 months, and the average number of aligners you'll wear during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
When you wear your aligners according to Dr. Wiesemann's instructions, Invisalign for Teen can be as effective as traditional braces for the most common teeth-straightening cases.
Invisalign can effectively treat mild to severe cases, including underbite, overbite, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth. The chances are very high that you will be a great candidate for Invisalign. To find out for sure, call us to schedule an appointment!
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Bowling Green, Portland, Russellville, and White House, and surrounding areas because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less "chair time." The typical Invisalign for Teens patient sees Dr. Wiesemann once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens
Invisalign for Teens effectively straightens teeth the same way metal braces do. Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens in Bowling Green, Portland, Russellville and White House who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.
As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you're interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories.
You should also get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues. With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and Dr. Wiesemann's expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Cost of Invisalign for Teens
At Wiesemann Orthodontics, we understand that every patient's needs are different. Many factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatment, and in most cases, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans in Kentucky and Tennessee.

Talk to Wiesemann Orthodontics About Invisalign
It's important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign at Wiesemann Orthodontics, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Wiesemann will recommend Invisalign patients wear a retainer after treatment to maintain their new alignment and their confident new smile.
Invisalign may not be recommended for some complex alignment or bite issues or for those who have bridgework; Dr. Wiesemann can advise you about what options are best for you.
