The teen years are a time of many changes. One way to make a positive, lasting change in your teenager’s life is through straightening their teeth with Invisalign. This clear plastic alignment option allows your teen to straighten their teeth discreetly and improve their oral health.
Invisalign for teens is an effective orthodontic treatment option designed to suit our younger patients. At Black Orthodontics, our knowledgeable team has years of experience providing Invisalign treatments, making us an effective option for your alignment needs.
A few factors may impact your teenager’s candidacy for braces:
Along with these physical considerations, it’s important to consider the responsibility level of your teen. They must wear their retainers for at least 20 hours each day and only remove their retainer to eat or drink. If you feel that your teen is not ready for this treatment process’s responsibility, you may want to pursue treatment options like braces.
The Invisalign for teens treatment process is the same as the procedures for adults. Both processes use clear, plastic trays to slowly align your teeth over the course of a few weeks. On your teen’s aligner, you’ll see a small blue dot that changes to white or clear the more often your teen wears their aligner. This indicator will allow Dr. Black to see if your teen is wearing their aligner as intended.
Black Orthodontics will also provide your teen with more replacement trays than our adult patients. Since your teen is more active, they’re at a higher risk of losing or misplacing their trays. These replacement trays come at no extra cost and will keep your teen’s treatment process on track.
When you choose Black Orthodontics, your teen will receive customized care to fit their dental needs. If your teen does not qualify as a candidate for Invisalign, we offer various treatment options, such as Damon braces for a comfortable alternative.
We also know that sometimes the unexpected may happen. You might realize that Invisalign is not the best option for your teen after they begin their treatment. If your teen is not experiencing the expected results within three months of treatment, we’ll switch your teen to a self-ligating brace at no additional charge.
