- Perfect for Busy Schedules: Invisalign Teen treatment is ideal for busy parents because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets. Invisalign often requires fewer appointments (than traditional metal braces) because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance and each visit requires less “chair time.” The typical Invisalign Teen patient is seen once every 8 weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
- Great for Active Teens: Invisalign Teen effectively straightens teeth the same way metal braces do. It’s an ideal choice for teens who are active in sports, who play certain types of instruments, who love crunchy snacks like apples and popcorn, or who are concerned about the appearance of metal braces at homecoming or in their yearbook photo. As teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in as well as have the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also be able to receive efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues. With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
- Doesn’t Cost More than Traditional Braces: Every patient’s needs are different and there are many factors that determine the cost of Invisalign treatment. In most cases, Invisalign is comparable in cost to traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans. Financing options are also available to make Invisalign more affordable for your family.
