Your Teen Will Love Invisalign® Treatment
At Humphrey Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and Invisalign Teen helps us do that.
By using clear aligners, your teen can have the smile they have always wanted with improved self-confidence without the appearance of metal appliances.
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign clear aligners can be a great option if you’re concerned about your appearance and don’t want to look different from your friends.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Humphrey will be able to determine if Invisalign for Teens is the best option for your unique smile.
The Invisalign for Teens aligners from Humphrey Orthodontics are made of clear plastic and almost invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal braces, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day.
You probably have friends 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 of your favorite foods whenever you want.
This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces.
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold you back from enjoying the things you want to. 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. Humphrey, 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 [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 Dr. Humphrey once every 8 weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 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 St. Peters and Wentzville 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 get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and Dr. Humphrey’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Able to Correct Many Cases
Invisalign Teen can help correct the following concerns:
- crowded teeth
- spaced teeth
- deep bite
- open bite
When used appropriately and in the right cases, Invisalign can be very helpful in correctly an array of cases.
Easier to Keep Clean
Aligners are often more hygienic than braces because it is much easier to clean your teeth when there are no braces in the way.
This also helps your teeth stay clean and white throughout treatment with reduced risk of demineralization.
Doesn't Cost More than Traditional Braces
At Humphrey Orthodontics, we understand that every patient's needs are different. Many factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatment. In most cases, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans.
Financing options are also available to make Invisalign more affordable for your family. The Humphrey Orthodontics team is here to answer any questions regarding financing, payment plans, and insurance claims.
Help Your Teen’s Treatment Stay on Track
To help your teen stay on track with treatment, there a couple of different features that Invisalign Teen offers:
- Monitoring tabs to help us detect if your teen is wearing the aligners properly
- A certain amount of replacement aligners are included in treatment, just in case your teen misplaces them
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, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Humphrey will provide a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
