Many kids and teens dread the years they will spend wearing metal braces on their teeth. For some they can be painful, hard to keep clean, and don’t make you feel very attractive. Some teens may even become self-conscious to the point that they smile less often than they used to. With Invisalign Teen and Invisalign First, young children and teens can help to develop the bones and align the teeth without ever having to deal with metal wires and brackets.
Children can begin with Invisalign as part of their early interceptive orthodontic treatments, which ensures teeth are properly spaced to avoid crowding. This helps to guide the teeth toward healthy growth and development. Learn more about early treatments and expansion here or by checking out this video.

Teens can enjoy Invisalign Teen in Wayne and Bryn Mawr, PA. Our aligners are virtually invisible, so most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. That means you can still do all the things that make these some of the best times of your life! Sports, musical events, goofing around with friends—all great reasons to visit an Invisalign orthodontist in Pennsylvania and achieve the same results as traditional braces. And for special occasions, just take your aligners out for that time and pop them back in when you’re ready.
Aligners are worn full time and removed only for eating and brushing. You can eat all different types of food because you can remove the clear aligners during meals. Keeping your teeth clean with brushing and flossing is much easier with Invisalign than with traditional braces.
Getting started with Invisalign Teen is easy. We use a 3D scanner to create an image of your teeth to be used when making the aligners. A series of aligners is designed to fit snugly and to be worn progressively until your orthodontic treatments are complete. Aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day.

Invisalign is also ideal for you and your child’s busy schedule, with benefits that include better hygiene, less concern over problematic foods, fewer emergency appointments (no poking wires, broken braces), and longer appointment intervals.
