Orthodontics for Teens
As a teen considering braces, you likely have a lot of questions – especially about how braces will affect your life and appearance. We have answers! Our orthodontists know all about teen braces and will ensure that you are ecstatic about your smile by the time your treatment is complete.
More and more teenagers are turning to Invisalign Teen for their orthodontic needs because the process of straightening their teeth with traditional metal braces interferes with eating, speaking and maintaining clean teeth. Metal braces can also cause self-consciousness and embarrassment, causing teens to feel less confident and to share their smiles less. We use Invisalign Teen® to provide teenagers with a way to straighten their teeth that is nearly undetectable.
Invisalign Teen is a version of Invisalign® that is designed for the unique needs of teenagers. Using a system of clear custom-fit aligners, this orthodontic method of correcting crooked and unevenly spaced teeth or bite issues allows patients to eat, drink and clean their teeth with ease. Because the aligners are removable, Invisalign Teen also permits patients to wear mouth guards during sports or to remove the appliance while playing an instrument. Our patients enjoy the comfort and convenience Invisalign Teen provides, and they are able to achieve straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile with minimal impact to their daily lives.
