Have a Teenager with Crooked Teeth? Invisalign Could Be the Answer!

Home » Blog » Have a Teenager with Crooked Teeth? Invisalign Could Be the Answer!

The teen years are a pretty tough nut to crack. As a parent, it can be hard to relate to your teenagers with the hormones, special language of the young, and sometimes maybe even a chip on their shoulder. Take a step back, and try to remember your own past.

Now, consider how they feel when looking in the mirror—or at one of the endless selfies teens take today—when they have crooked teeth. It’s probably pretty hard for them, but they may not even want to consider getting braces because of the additional stigma this can put on them. It can be easy to miss the forest for the trees at this age where they just have to get through the treatment to see results of a beautiful smile. That’s where Invisalign comes in.


What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the perfect choice for discerning individuals who don’t want to deal with the embarrassment of metal braces on their teeth. Invisalign is made out of clear plastic aligners that fit over the teeth—invisible in comparison to the metal wires and brackets you’re used to with traditional braces.

Invisalign offers more than just the confidence-boosting, clear plastic as its selling feature; your teen also won’t have to worry about trying to brush and floss their teeth around their braces, as the Invisalign trays can be removed. Similarly, traditional braces limit the food a patient can eat, like gum or popcorn, but with Invisalign, that’s not an issue. The molded plastic comes out easily and pops right back in.

Additionally, Invisalign is smooth and comfortable, so your teen won’t have to worry about brackets, wires, and regular adjustments that are painful and uncomfortable.


Invisalign and Teenagers: A Match Made in Heaven

Teenagers are the perfect patients for these treatments. Most teenagers are eligible for Invisalign, and the plastic aligners are custom-fit. No nagging them about avoiding foods that are bad for their braces or making a thousand appointments for the orthodontist. Plus, if your teen happens to be the forgetful type, Invisalign provides several free aligners in case they are lost that are already included in the price.


Dr. Price: The Elite Provider

Dr. Price offers Invisalign in her Phoenix practice and is considered an Elite provider for the experience and skill she brings to the table as an Invisalign provider. Your teen couldn’t be in better hands. During your initial exam, Dr. Price will walk you through the process as she evaluates your teen. An impression of the teeth is made if they are a suitable candidate, and your treatment plan will be created.

3D printers will then be used to create the perfect set of aligners for your teen. The amount of time for successful treatment will vary, but some teens can get the smile they desire in a year or less, and Dr. Price is now offering a new treatment method called Propel that can help to further reduce the time spent using this treatment.

Parents, you want what’s best for your teens, and Invisalign is the perfect treatment method for helping them with any crooked teeth issues that they may be dealing with on top of being a teen. They have enough problems with passing their upcoming geometry test, studying for the SAT, and getting a date for the next big dance—so, why not take a bit of the stress off their shoulders by giving them straight teeth through a treatment that is not going to make them feel like they have a beacon pointing towards their mouth? Contact Dr. Price today to find out more about this revolutionary treatment method that will help give your teen more confidence along with a killer smile
