Invisalign FAQ

At Park Place Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics we understand that teenage years can be an exciting yet challenging time, especially while undergoing orthodontic treatment. This is why we are proud to offer Invisalign Teen to our teen patients so that they can straighten their teeth with confidence.

If you feel that your teen might be a candidate for Invisalign teen but have questions, we are here to help. We encourage you to read through our frequently asked questions, however, if you can’t find the answers to your questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Arlington, TX or Hurst, TX orthodontic office!

Will Invisalign produce the same results I would want to see with metal braces?

The short answer is yes. While both traditional braces and Invisalign have their benefits, Invisalign treatment relies on clear aligners that are virtually invisible, meaning Invisalign wearers can smile more confidently in social situations than they might be wearing braces! With Invisalign, there are no wires or brackets rubbing against the inside of your mouth, meaning Invisalign often feels more comfortable than traditional braces. There are many factors to consider and not every patient is a candidate for Invisalign treatment. Contact us today to set up a consultation with our team to discuss which option is best for your teenager!

22 hours per day is the magic number to achieving a smile that looks and feels great. Essentially, Invisalign should remain in your teen’s mouth as much as possible for their treatment to be effective. That being said, aligners can (and should) be temporarily removed when eating, brushing, and flossing. At Park Place Dentistry & Orthodontics, we support our patients to make sure they can successfully follow the steps and care needed for Invisalign.
