When we think of orthodontic treatment for teens, what comes to mind? You probably think of a mouth full of metal braces and brightly colored rubber bands. However, Invisalign can be a great option for busy and active teens who might already be feeling self-conscious about their teeth.
Why do we love Invisalign for teens at Webb Family Orthodontics?
Fits Busy Lives
Because you receive several Invisalign aligners at each appointment, there are fewer appointments required than for traditional braces. There are also no emergency appointments to handle protruding wires or broken brackets!
Perfect for Active Lifestyles
Because Invisalign aligners are removable and totally smooth, they’re great for teens who play sports or certain instruments. Unlike metal braces, aligners can be temporarily removed for band practice or replaced with a traditional mouthguard for that soccer game.
Flexible and Invisible
You know your teen might already be feeling self-conscious about their teeth! Invisalign lets teens straighten their smiles without drawing attention to the treatment. On top of that, being able to remove the clear aligners means no off-limit foods. And who really wants to micromanage their teen’s diet?
You may think that Invisalign is more expensive than traditional braces, but that’s normally not the case! Each patient and their treatment plan are different, but Invisalign is usually comparable in price to traditional metal braces and is covered by most dental insurance plans.
