Now Teenagers Can Enjoy Invisalign®, Too
If your teen is image-conscious and doesn’t want to seem different from their friends, think about using Invisalign to straighten their teeth instead of braces. At Miller Orthodontics, we’re happy to offer Invisalign Teen to our patients in Newmarket, Aurora, Bradford, East Gwillimbury, and the surrounding areas!
Invisalign for Teens is an orthodontic treatment option from Invisalign designed just for a teenager’s lifestyle. This is a great choice if your teen would want to consider a different choice than traditional metal braces.
Comfortable & Almost Invisible Treatment
The aligners from Invisalign for Teens are constructed of see-through acrylic plastic and are hard to notice when your teen wears them.
In fact, their friends may never even realize they are wearing their Invisalign aligners. Instead of sporting obvious metal braces, they’ll feel self-confident and flash the smile you know and love.
If you choose treatment with traditional metal braces, your teen will need to remember not to eat particular foods like whole apples, gum, hard candy, and popcorn.
But, your teen can remove their Invisalign for Teens aligners whenever it’s time to eat, so you’ll never have to schedule an appointment with Dr. Miller to fix a broken wire.
Your teen can floss and brush just like they do now, so unlike traditional braces, they’ll have an easy time keeping up their good oral hygiene practices.
When it comes to playing in the band or playing sports, Invisalign for Teens shines in school activities. There won’t be any risks if they cut their mouth on their musical instrument or avoiding a ball to the mouth.
Invisalign for Teens can help your teen worry about enjoying their life and not changing it.
The Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Great for Busy Lives
If you’re a busy parent, you’ll appreciate Invisalign for Teens because you’ll never have to fit in an emergency appointment with Dr. Miller after your teen broke a bracket or wire eating something they weren’t supposed to.
On average, you won’t need to bring your teen to as many orthodontics appointments compared to metal braces, because your teen will receive all of their Invisalign sets ahead of time.
Also, whenever you do go see Dr. Miller, you won’t be there as long as you would with a fixed orthodontic option.
On average, we see our teen patients in Invisalign about every eight weeks and the average treatment length is about 12 months but it can range anywhere between 9-15.
Active Teens Love Invisalign
Invisalign for Teens works the same way as traditional braces to straighten your teen’s teeth.
That means this is a great choice if your teen loves crunchy snacks, plays on sports teams or plays the trumpet. They won’t have to worry about how they’ll look in their prom pictures, either.
Your teen should think about living their lives and participating in the school activities they want to but also be able to achieve a confident smile you want for them.
Thanks to Invisalign, your teenager will look forward to the clear comfort of their treatment while not worrying about their treatment getting in the way of their memories.
