We know that each of our patients is unique—especially teens! Our teen patients have varying preferences, lifestyles, needs and goals, and it’s our job to accommodate those. Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable, removable and practically invisible.
You won’t have any diet restrictions, as you’ll be able to remove your aligners to eat. You’ll also remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth, so you won’t have to work around any brackets or wires!
Invisalign for teens allows you to continue playing sports or musical instruments without worry of cutting your lip on metal brackets and wires.
Our knowledge and expertise enable us to complete Invisalign treatments in about half the time as a typical metal braces treatment, too! Teens can expect a quick and effective treatment with Invisalign.
While the jaw bones are still developing in the early teen years, Invisalign is ideal for guiding permanent teeth into a straight and healthy alignment. We treat the following conditions with Invisalign for Teens:
Invisalign attachments are often used with Invisalign to apply additional, gentle force to the teeth during the Invisalign process. These specialized attachments are small, tooth-colored shapes that fill the space between the aligner and the tooth. This adds strategic pressure to support movement of individual teeth for a more effective treatment.
The ability to remove Invisalign is one of the great benefits of these modern braces for teens! Many teens appreciate the ability to remove their aligners when brushing their teeth, flossing, and eating.
Not only are these aligners practically-invisible, removable, and increasingly hygienic—(all of the essentials for teens)—but they also include “eruption tabs” that hold space open in the mouth to allow new, undeveloped molars to emerge. These tabs guide growing teeth into alignment as they’re erupting.
