All About Invisalign® for Teens Treatment
At Smiles to Love Orthodontics in Marysville and Plain City, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth. Invisalign for Teens helps us do just that!
Invisalign doesn't use brackets, wires and bands like traditional braces.
Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teens.
Removable + Almost Invisible
The Invisalign for Teens aligners are made of clear plastic, almost invisible, and are removable. This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of sporting braces, Smiles to Love Orthodontics Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day.
You probably have friends in Marysville and Plain City with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign for Teens, the aligners are completely removable, so you can eat all your favorite foods whenever you want. BE CAREFUL THOUGH…it is particularly important that you wear your aligners 22 hours per day and change your aligners weekly as our doctors prescribe!
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges. 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 you focus on doing what you do best-being a teen. At your initial consultation with Dr. Schweiss or Dr. Jusseaume, you’ll find out if Invisalign is a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Marysville, Plain City, and surrounding areas because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less "chair time."
The typical Invisalign for Teens patient sees their orthodontist once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 18 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 in Marysville and Plain City 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.
As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and Dr. Schweiss and Dr. Jusseaume’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Cost of Invisalign
At Smiles to Love Orthodontics, we understand that every patient's needs are different. Many factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatment. Cost for your Invisalign treatment can be discussed at your free consultation.
If Invisalign is a good fit for your teen, financing options are available to make Invisalign more affordable for your family. The Smiles to Love Orthodontics team is here to answer any questions regarding financing, payment plans, and insurance claims.
Talk to Us About Invisalign
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign at Smiles to Love Orthodontics, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Schweiss or Dr. Jusseaume will recommend Invisalign patients to wear a retainer after treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
Invisalign may not be recommended for some complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework. Your orthodontist can advise you about what options are best for you.
