Invisalign Teen in Lakewood
Bummed out about having to get braces?
Now you can improve your smile without interrupting your life. Spend more time eating lunch with friends, popcorn at the movies and playing the sports you love.
Invisalign Teen aligners give you a whole new way to wear braces for a clearly amazing smile. It's possible to use clear plastic trays to straighten the teeth and align the bite.
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Here are the advantages of choosing Invisalign over traditional braces:
- No emergencies from broken braces or poking wires
- No goop digital impressions
- Less time in the orthodontic chair
- Replacement aligners when needed at no additional cost
- Fewer and less frequent appointments
- Easier hygiene and no dietary restrictions
- Remove your aligner to play sports
Correct Your Bite, Too
In 2018, the FDA approved the Mandibular Advancement feature on Invisalign aligners for use in the United States. This new feature eliminates the need for a separate headgear, MARA, or HERBST appliance to correct overbite and overjet issues due to a small lower jaw in the growing teenage patient.
Now, teens can wear their aligners with special plastic wing tabs towards the back of their aligners to correct their bite at the same time as straightening their teeth.
