Straightening Smiles Subtly
What Is Invisalign Teen?
Most kids and teens aren't thrilled about the idea of wearing metal braces. For some, they can be painful or hard to keep clean. Others may even become self-conscious to the point that they smile less often than they used to while wearing traditional braces.
With Invisalign Teen at Foote Orthodontics, we can align your child's teeth without ever having to deal with metal wires and brackets.
Our aligners are virtually invisible, so when they’re worn, most people won’t even know notice. That means your teen can still do all the things they love to do. Sports, musical events, goofing around with friends—Invisalign keeps all of these accessible. And for special occasions, the aligners can be taken out temporarily, so you can smile with confidence for every important event.
Our Invisalign treatments are the same cost as metal braces and brackets, and our initial consultations are always complimentary, so straighter smiles are readily available to everyone.
No Wires, No Brackets
How Does Invisalign Teen Work?
Getting started with Invisalign Teen is easy. We use a 3D scanner to create an image of your teen’s teeth that will be used to make the aligners. After scanning, a series of custom aligners will be designed to fit snugly and to be worn progressively until orthodontic treatments, which usually last between 6 to 12 months, are complete.
Aligners are worn full time and removed only for eating, brushing and flossing. Because the system is removable, your teen has the freedom to eat whatever foods they enjoy, and it's much easier for them to keep their teeth clean.
Invisalign is also ideal for busy schedules. With no wires to poke or brackets to break, there are typically longer intervals between appointments, and fewer emergency appointments to attend.
Versatile Care For All Situations
Other Available Orthodontic Treatments For Teens
At Foote Orthodontics, we offer a full spectrum of orthodontic procedures to ensure your teen gets the treatment they need to straighten their smile and boost their confidence. Invisalign is a great option for some patients, but not all. For more severe cases, traditional metal or ceramic braces are the best option to align your teen’s teeth for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
