Your Teen Will Love Invisalign® for Teens Treatment
At Alba Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth. Invisalign Teen helps us do that. Invisalign doesn't use brackets, wires and bands like traditional braces.
Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teens. At your initial consultation, Dr. Fred Alba or Dr. Jeff Alba will be able to determine if Invisalign for Teens is the best option for your unique smile.
The Invisalign for Teens aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible. Your friends probably won't even know you're wearing them. Instead of sporting metal braces, Alba Orthodontics Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles 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. That means 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, 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 at Alba Orthodontics, you'll find out if Invisalign is a good fit for your smile and lifestyle!
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Mechanicsburg and surrounding areas because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
Invisalign often requires fewer, less frequent appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance. The typical Invisalign for Teens patient sees our doctors once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens
Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens in Mechanicsburg who play sports, certain instruments or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming in the yearbook. And since they straighten teeth the same way metal braces do, you'll still love the results.
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 our doctor's expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Doesn't Cost More than Traditional Braces
At Alba Orthodontics, we understand that your family has unique needs. Many factors will contribute to the cost of Invisalign treatment. For most patients, the cost of Invisalign is similar to traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans.
Financing options are also available to make Invisalign more affordable for your family. The Alba Orthodontics team is here to answer any questions regarding financing, payment plans, and insurance claims.
It's important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day so they can do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, we recommend Invisalign patients wear a retainer after treatment to maintain your new alignment-and your confident new smile.
