A beautiful smile is a major part of anyone’s self-esteem and self-confidence, and that’s even truer during your child’s adolescent years. Unfortunately, those are the years that most kids have to wear braces! While metal braces offer a traditional option for orthodontic treatment, our Arlington children’s orthodontist is proud to offer Invisalign as an alternative, more discrete option to braces. Contact us today to schedule an Invisalign consultation for your child!
As a child grows, their smile grows with them. With an early orthodontic consult, our orthodontist can better identify issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem. Invisalign is a convenient treatment for adolescents and teens that’s easy to fit into your child’s lifestyle. All your child has to do is wear their custom-made aligners for about 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, drink anything besides water, brush their teeth, and floss. At the end of every two week period, your child will move to the next pair of aligners in the sequence, and with each new set, they get closer to a beautiful new smile. Better yet, once they finish the last pair, that new smile is theirs to keep!
But that’s not all! We’re now proud to offer a form of Invisalign that’s been custom-built for teenagers—Invisalign Teen. In addition to the advantages of the regular Invisalign System, Invisalign Teen boasts a number of new, unique features designed especially for teens.
Each Invisalign Teen aligner comes with a built-in Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which alerts parents, orthodontists, and even teens themselves if the aligners are being worn enough or if the patient needs to be a little more diligent. We can also create the aligners with “eruption tabs,” which hold open space for unerupted teeth. Finally, each treatment course comes with six free replacement aligners, so you won’t have to worry about lost or broken aligners!
Invisalign is one of the best orthodontic treatment options on the market for teenagers, and if you’re interested in learning how Invisalign can help your child, we’d love to speak with you.
