Being a teenager is a time of incredible growth. Having a beautiful smile can set your teen up for a more confident outlook on life. Braces technology has experienced a lot of changes in the last few years. Modern options allow a more comfortable treatment experience that fits even the busiest teen’s lifestyle. 

At Palmetto Family Orthodontics, we have unparalleled experience improving smiles throughout the Upstate. Schedule a complimentary appointment to learn more.

What is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen uses a system of calibrated aligners to adjust the position of your teen’s smile gradually. These aligners deliver the optimum comfort for growing smiles. Aligners feature a proprietary material that blends into your teen’s smile without any noticeable components.

Many people choose Invisalign teen for their family because:

  • Teens can improve their smiles without giving up most foods
  • Removable aligners mean it’s easy to brush and floss
  • Less noticeable treatment
  • Fewer in-office appointments

Palmetto Family Orthodontics is a Platinum Plus Invisalign provider. This distinction means we are among the top 1% of Invisalign providers in the country. Our experts have unparalleled insight into how to get results with aligners.

Is Invisalign Teen Right For My Teenager?

Invisalign is proven to deliver results for the most common types of orthodontic conditions, including gapped teeth, missing teeth, bad bites, malocclusions, and more!

Understanding your teen’s needs is central to knowing the best treatment for them. During your complimentary consultation, we will examine your teen’s needs and create a game plan for their treatment. We use our experience plus the data of one million other successful Invisalign patients to perfect their smile.

More advanced cases may require other appliances. We have many options that can meet the demands of any teen’s lifestyle.

How Does Invisalign for Teens work?

The secret to Invisalign Teen is the aligners that apply gentle pressure on the teeth. They work similarly to traditional braces but do not require a network of visible wires and brackets. Wearing these aligners for 20-22 hours a day creates an ideal alignment for your smile. 

Invisalign Teen is a little different from other options from Invisalign. They feature a small blue dot on the side of the aligner that fades away with wear. This helps teens remember to wear their aligners, and lets parents monitor their progress. 

Wearing Invisalign as a teenager comes with the expectation that your teen is ready for the responsibility of aligner use. Teens that haven’t developed the maturity to wear their aligners (and not lose them) may be happier choosing from our other stylish and comfortable options

Invisalign aligners are a remarkable appliance. However, they may not work for all instances. More advanced issues may require alternative forms of treatment.
