Although metal braces have become a symbol of someone’s teenage years, that doesn’t mean that these braces are the only form of orthodontic treatment available to teenagers. Families with teens have a choice. About half the teens that visit our Ellicott City and Clarksville offices for comprehensive orthodontic treatment are choosing Invisalign Teen over traditional orthodontic braces because of the flexibility that Invisalign clear aligners offers patients.


Invisalign Teen, a version of Invisalign clear aligners made specifically for teenagers and young adults, is a series of custom-made clear aligners that fit over the teeth and are worn for two weeks before moving on to the next set. Invisalign Teen has a few modifications made for the developing mouths of teens, including “compliance indicators,” which are colored dots that fade over time as the aligners are worn. These indicators show your orthodontist whether or not your teen bas been wearing the aligners as instructed. Another modification is built-in “eruption tabs” that are designed to hold space for teeth that have not yet fully erupted.


Why Choose Invisalign Teen


Teen patients love how discreet Invisalign clear aligners are and how their peers don’t notice that they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. With many important social occasions occurring during
2 teenage years, like high school prom and homecoming, Invisalign Teen is the perfect form of orthodontic treatment for your teen.

In comparison to metal braces, Invisalign Teen offers:

● Easier oral care - the aligners may be removed for brushing and flossing
● No food restrictions - Invisalign aligners can be removed at meal times, so you can eat whatever you choose
● More comfort - made from a flexible plastic, Invisalign aligners do not have irritating brackets or wires to worry about
● Better self confidence - with the virtual invisibility of Invisalign, your teen can smile with confidence while undergoing orthodontic treatment
