Teen Treatments

Invisalign Teen

Any parent knows that the look and discomfort of metal braces can be a real concern for your teen. In the past, there were few alternatives to the traditional “metal mouth” to correct your smile. Fortunately, there are more options for teens now including Invisalign Teen®.

What is Invisalign Teen®?

Invisalign Teen® is an nearly invisible method for straightening your teeth, using an advanced 3D computer imaging program based on your dentist’s treatment plan and your own teeth to design a series of transparent aligners that work as well as braces, but without the metal.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Teen®?

Besides the aesthetic benefit, with Invisalign Teen® you are able to brush and floss as you normally would which makes for healthier gums and teeth as well. You also have the ability to remove the aligners so that you can enjoy some of your favorite foods.

Does Invisalign Teen® Work as Well as Braces?

Yes. Invisalign Teen® is just as effective as straightening your teeth with braces.

How Long Will I Have to Use Invisalign Teen®?

The average time to use the aligners is about 12 months, but it depends upon the severity of the case, so each teen that uses Invisalign® has different results.

Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rice to find out more about the technology that can straighten teeth without the need for restrictive metal braces. You’ll be amazed just how convenient Invisalign Teen® is compared to metal braces and how much they can improve your teenager’s quality of life.
