Your Teen Will Love Invisalign from Johnson Orthodontics
Using Invisalign to straighten your teeth is a great option for teens concerned about their appearance and don’t want to look different than their friends in Rehoboth Beach.
Invisalign created a system that meets the special needs of teens. Invisalign for Teens can be a great and less obvious option for teens shying away from traditional metal braces.
Teen Invisalign in Rehoboth Beach & Lewes
The Invisalign for Teens aligners are almost invisible because they’re made of clear plastic. Your teen’s friends probably won’t even know they’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal, your teen will enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day.
They’ll probably have friends with braces who can’t chew gum or eat certain food like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign for Teens, the aligners are completely removable, so your teen can eat all of their favorite foods whenever they want.
Your teen will also be able to easily keep brushing and flossing as they normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces!
If your child plays sports or a musical instrument at a school in or around Rehoboth Beach, a mouth full of metal can hold them back from enjoying the activities they love.
It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet. Invisalign for Teens helps your child focus on doing what they do best—being a teen.
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is great for busy parents because there are never any emergency appointments for broken wires and brackets because there aren’t any!
Plus, Invisalign at Johnson Orthodontics often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less time in the appointment chair.
Dr. Johnson sees the typical Invisalign for Teens patient once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens
Invisalign for Teens effectively straightens teeth the same way metal braces do. Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.
Teenagers should participate in the activities they’re interested in without sacrificing the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. They should also have the chance to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
With the clear, comfortable technology used by Invisalign, Rehoboth Beach teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Doesn’t Cost More than Traditional Braces
Your needs are unique, and many factors determine Invisalign treatment costs. In most cases, Invisalign in Rehoboth Beach costs about the same as traditional braces and is covered by most dental insurance plans.
Johnson Orthodontics also offers financing options to make Invisalign more affordable for your family.
Talk to Dr. Johnson About Invisalign
It’s important your teen wears their aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten their teeth. But, with Invisalign, they can remove their aligners for special occasions like band practice, sports events, or dances.
Just like with traditional braces, your teen will need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain their new alignment—and their confident new smile.
Dr. Johnson may not recommend Invisalign for some complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework. Johnson Orthodontics can advise you about what options are best for your teen.
