Invisalign for Teens
The teenage years are a crucial time for orthodontic treatments. Of course, you want your teen to have a beautiful, healthy smile, but you also don’t want them to deal with the hassle and embarrassment of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign for teens is the perfect solution!
Contact Tencza & Pugliese Dental in Easton, PA, to learn more about Invisalign for teens and which treatment option is right for your child.
What is Invisalign Teen, and how does it work?
Invisalign Teen is a system of clear, plastic removable aligners that are custom-made to shift your teenager’s teeth into the correct position gradually. In addition, the smooth plastic aligners are virtually invisible, so your teen can continue to smile naturally throughout treatment.
The Invisalign Teen treatment process begins with a consultation with your orthodontist or dentist to see if Invisalign Teen is suitable for your teen. If Invisalign Teen is right for your teen, the orthodontist will take dental impressions of your teen’s teeth, which will be used to create a custom treatment plan.
Once the treatment plan is created, your teen will be given a series of clear aligners. As your teen wears each aligner, their teeth will gradually shift into the correct position.
Your teen will need to visit your Invisalign Provider every 6 to 8 weeks to ensure that treatment progresses. Treatment typically takes 9 to 18 months, but each case is different.
What are the benefits of Invisalign aligners for teens?
Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners offer many benefits, including:
- Virtually invisible: Metal braces are very noticeable, but Invisalign’s clear aligners are almost invisible. This means that your teen can continue to smile naturally throughout treatment.
- Removable: Since the aligners are removable, your teen can continue eating their favorite foods and performing oral hygiene routines efficiently.
- Comfortable: The Invisalign clear aligners are much more comfortable and do not irritate the gum line.
- Customizable: Each treatment plan is customized to the individual patient, so you can be sure that your teen is getting the best possible care with more replacement aligners.
- Boosts Self-Esteem: Invisalign can help your teen feel better about their smile and themselves.
If you’re looking for a discreet, comfortable, and effective orthodontic treatment option for your teen, look no further than Invisalign Teen. Contact Tencza & Pugliese Dental in Easton, PA, to schedule a consultation and determine if Invisalign Teen is suitable for your child.
Is Invisalign treatment more expensive than other treatments?
The cost of the Invisalign treatment process is similar to the cost of traditional braces. However, because Invisalign requires fewer dental appointments, you may save money on office visits. Every patient is unique, and treatment will depend on the severity of their misaligned smile.
If your teen previously wore braces, treatment may be shorter and less expensive. Our dental specialists will be able to give you a better estimate of the cost of Invisalign treatment once they have had a chance to examine your teen’s teeth.
How does Invisalign Teen compare to other orthodontic treatment options?
Invisalign gradually moves teeth into the proper position, just like traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners, so your teen can continue to smile with confidence throughout treatment. The aligners are removable, adding convenience for your child’s busy life, and they need to wear them for 22 hours a day. Braces require more frequent dental visits for adjustments.
Invisalign Teen is an excellent option for busy teens who want to maintain their active lifestyle and confident smile.
