Invisalign Teen, an alternative to traditional metal braces, is different from braces in that teenagers can correct their teeth by wearing customized, nearly invisible, clear aligners. These aligners must be worn 20 – 22 hours, except for eating, drinking liquids other than water, brushing, flossing and playing certain sports. The advantages to Invisalign Teen is that it helps teenagers maintain their self-esteem and self-confidence while accommodating their active lifestyles as well as addressing their orthodontic needs. Since Invisalign Teen aligners are easy to remove, they promote better oral hygiene while creating a pain-free experience with less irritation to the gums and mouth. Not all patients are eligible for Invisalign, which depends on the severity of their case, so please consult with our orthodontic team.
