If your teen needs orthodontic work, Invisalign® for teens offers a discreet alternative to the metal brackets and wires of traditional braces. The clear, removable aligners are almost invisible, eliminating the self-consciousness many teens feel with metal braces. Lach Orthodontic Specialists offers Invisalign® in Orlando, FL. In fact, Dr. Lach is a top 1% provider for Invisalign® and the number 1 provider in Orlando, FL for Invisalign®.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Your teen will be fitted with a customized series of clear, removable aligners designed to provide pressure that moves the teeth into the desired position. They are easy to wear since they are simply placed over the teeth and removed for meals. Every two weeks, your teen will be fitted with the next aligners. Over time, the teeth will be gradually repositioned.
Is Invisalign® for Teens Effective?
When worn according to the treatment plan, Invisalign® for teens is shown to be at least as effective as traditional braces. While it can’t treat every orthodontic condition, most teens with mild to severe orthodontic issues like underbite, overbite, overcrowding and gaps between teeth are eligible.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign® for Teens?
Most teens prefer Invisalign® because the system is virtually invisible, allowing them to feel more confident about their looks. For kids who play sports, the aligners can be removed for games and practices without impacting the treatment plan; with metal braces, sports can be a challenge since impact to the mouth could cause serious damage. Teens who play musical instruments can also remove the aligners when practicing or performing. And unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® for teens carries no food restrictions and allows for easy oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing.
