Do you have a teenager in need of orthodontics but they do not want to wear traditional metal braces? If your teenager is experiencing mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, Invisalign® for teens may be the ideal solution. Invisalign for teens is a discreet way to realign teeth.
Many teenagers are sensitive about the way they look and worry about metal braces affecting their appearance. Invisalign for teens lets your teen correct orthodontic concerns with clear and comfortable aligners. Greeley, CO orthodontist Dr. David Richter provides comprehensive services for teenagers looking to discreetly straighten their teeth.
How does Invisalign for teens work?
Invisalign for teens works through the use of a custom designed series of clear aligners. Dr. Richter will custom fabricate a series of aligners that will be worn daily by your teenager. The aligners are similar to a custom sports mouthguard and are barely visible to other people. It is necessary for your teen to wear the aligners for most of the day with exception to sports, eating or brushing their teeth for optimal results.
Is Invisalign for teens more expensive than metal braces?
The cost of any treatment is often dependent on the complexity of the case. However, for many patients, the cost and duration of Invisalign braces are less than what it may be with traditional metal braces.
Is my teen a good candidate for Invisalign Teen?
Dr. Richter will assess your teen’s oral health and analyze their bite to determine if Invisalign is right for them. Dr. Richter always recommends the most conservative but effective treatment and will help guide you through the process.
