Teens are notoriously self-conscious about their appearance, which is why Invisalign Teen is perfect orthodontic treatment for adolescents who need their teeth straightened. At Sugar Creek Family Dental, we offer Invisalign Teen for our young patients who would prefer a discrete way to get a straight, healthy smile. In about the same time frame as most braces, teens can gently move their teeth into alignment with clear, Invisalign Teen aligners.
Many teens have had to endure the years of wearing metal braces, dealing with retainers, bands, adjustments and many other uncomfortable issues that come with wearing braces. Braces can be painful, embarrassing and limit which foods you can eat. With Invisalign Teen, your teenager can still get the needed orthodontic care without the discomfort or embarrassment of braces.
Clear Dental Aligners for Teens
Invisalign works discretely to shift teeth into place using clear, BPA-free plastic aligners. These aligners are made from 3D imaging taken of their teeth. The shape of the aligners is gradually changed in each set to move the teeth. Every few weeks, a new set of aligners gently shift the teeth into the desired position. These aligners need to be worn about 22 hours a day, but teens can remove them to eat their favorite foods and to perform their oral hygiene. The aligners are comfortable and almost invisible, making them ideal for the teenager that would prefer not to wear braces.
