Is Invisalign Teen Right for Your Teenager?
If your teen needs braces but is worried about having a mouth full of metal, then Invisalign® Teen could make your teen smile.
The Clear Case for Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen is a barely visible way to straighten teeth and repair dental problems for teens today. These clear braces use a series of clear, customized aligners to gradually move a teen’s teeth. To help the teeth move, these clear aligners must be worn for at least 20 hours each day and replaced with a new set every two weeks from an Invisalign provider. Their clear construction and lack of metal brackets and wires makes them a more discreet and attractive alternative to metal braces.
The Treatment Teens Prefer
With Invisalign Teen, your teen gets all of the benefits of braces, but with none of the physical or personal discomfort. These clear braces can straighten teeth and correct dental problems as effectively as metal braces, yet don’t affect a teen’s daily activities, eating, dental hygiene, or confidence. As a result, Invisalign Teen is a popular alternative to metal braces. Some of the biggest benefits include:
- Just as effective as metal braces for mild to severe dental problems, such as overbite, underbite, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth
- Removable to allow for easy eating, brushing, and flossing
- None of the food restrictions of metal braces
- No self-consciousness about wearing braces
Facts about Treatment with Invisalign Teen
Treatment with Invisalign Teen takes about the same amount of time as traditional metal braces. But since every teen is different, your Invisalign provider will determine your teen’s length of treatment by their personal dental conditions. Similarly, the cost of Invisalign Teen is comparable to metal braces, but individual costs vary by the location of care and severity of the case.
