TEEN BRACES & INVISALIGN
Teenagers today are busier and more self conscious about their appearance than ever before. At Moody Orthodontics, we understand that how you look can impact how you feel, especially for teens. We’ve seen first hand how transforming a smile can reward a teen with a boost in self-confidence, a happier demeanor, and improved social interactions with friends and classmates. Give your teen a gift that will last forever: a beautiful smile.
Dr. Moody believes that orthodontic treatment for teens does not have to mean metal braces. Most of our patients choose more aesthetic treatment options, like Invisalign® Teen or clear braces and finish treatment in 18 months or less. We know how busy teenagers are with sports, band practice and life in general so we offer after school appointments and accelerated treatment options to fit their individual smiles and busy teen lifestyles.
IS INVISALIGN TEEN RIGHT FOR YOUR TEEN?
- Doesn’t cost more than braces: While the factors that determine the cost of orthodontic treatment are different for each person, for most cases the cost of Invisalign or Invisalign Teen is comprable to the cost of braces and is covered by most insurance plans.
- Ideal for Busy Schedules: Invisalign Teen is ideal for busy parents and teens. In fact, Invisalign requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces. Appointments for Invisalign patients average 10-15 minutes, every 10-12 weeks.
- Life, Uninterrupted: Invisalign Teen is an ideal choice for teens who are active in sports, those who play certain musical instruments or those who don’t want to give up crunchy and sticky foods. Most importantly, Invisalign Teen allows teens to remove their aligners at meals, to brush and floss their teeth, AND at important events like big games, prom, and to take daily selfies.
DOES INVISALIGN TEEN WORK?
Invisalign Teen is an aesthetic, flexible way to give teenagers the confidence of a great smile. With Dr. Moody’s expertise, Invisalign teen works just as well as metal braces for most teen cases and Dr. Moody can still manipulate jaw growth and facial development with the use of elastics and other appliances that were traditionally used with braces. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable, removable, and nearly invisible, which means our teenage patients can enjoy life without the restrictions, irritation, and self-consciousness associated with metal brackets and wires.
The Best Invisalign Treatment
Experience matters when choosing an orthodontist for your teen’s Invisalign treatment. The magic of Invisalign is not in the clear plastic aligners but in the overall smile design and movement of each individual tooth that Dr. Moody prescribes based on your teen’s facial proportions and esthetic needs. Dr. Moody is the artist and Invisalign is the brush she uses to craft a perfect smile.
