If your teenager is embarrassed of their smile, chances are, they would feel uncomfortable wearing traditional braces. If their self-esteem is a little fragile, wearing metal brackets and wires could be mortifying for them. To allow your teen to straighten their teeth without marring the beauty of their smile, ask Dr. Joseph Wilson about Invisalign Teen® in Yuma, Arizona. Invisalign Teen will allow your child to continue being a social, active teenager.

With Invisalign Teen, our orthodontist will take impressions of your teen’s teeth so that a series of plastic aligners can be made. These aligners will gently straighten your teen’s teeth over time. The aligners are nearly invisible, so most people will not even know that your teen is straightening their teeth. With traditional braces, the patient is not allowed to eat things like popcorn, gum, and whole apples. There are no food restrictions with Invisalign Teen, so your teen can continue to eat the foods they love. Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, so your teen will be able to brush and floss normally. The aligners are made of smooth plastic, so your teen will be able to play an instrument or sport without fear of cutting their lip, as they might on metal brackets.
