Nov 20, 2023By Jack Gaffey


As a parent, you want the best for your teen, especially when it comes to their oral health. Traditional metal braces have long been the go-to solution for straightening teeth, but they can be uncomfortable, unsightly, and inconvenient. Thankfully, there is a modern alternative that offers all the benefits without the drawbacks - Invisalign.

The Advantages of Invisalign

1. Clear and virtually invisible: Invisalign aligners are made of a transparent material, making them nearly invisible when worn. Your teen can smile confidently without feeling self-conscious about their braces.

2. Comfortable: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic, which means no sharp metal wires or brackets to irritate the mouth. They are custom-made to fit your teen's teeth, providing a comfortable and snug fit.

3. Wearing the Aligners: Your teen will receive a series of aligners that they will wear for about 20-22 hours a day. Each set of aligners is typically worn for one to two weeks before progressing to the next set.

4. Regular Check-Ups: Throughout the treatment, your teen will have periodic check-ups with their orthodontist to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments.
