Does Your Teen Need Braces? Consider Your Options

We all want what’s best for our kids. For many, this means straightening their teeth in some way. I have a teen son and tween daughter. We are already weighing our options about orthodontic treatments. If you have kids in the same age bracket, you are bound to see a ton of kids getting braces. In my area, they all seem to be the metal kind. I was not aware that there was another option for teens. When I had a mouth full of metal in my teen years, I certainly wish I had other options to consider.

When I hear about the clear aligners they have today, where you can take them out for eating, brushing teeth, etc. I think to myself, “I certainly I had those for my Sweet 16 party.” If clear aligners are something of interest to you and your teen, talk to your doctor about Invisalign Teen clear aligners.

Invisalign Teen treatment, which is the only clear aligners designed for teens to straighten teeth, now comes with a satisfaction guarantee for teens and their parents.

The Invisalign Teen Guarantee

  • Gives parents the ability to choose Invisalign Teen clear aligners for their teens knowing that if they are not satisfied within the first six months of treatment, a participating doctor will switch their teen into traditional wires and brackets at no additional cost.
  • The Invisalign Teen Guarantee is available for Invisalign Teen patients starting treatment between Sept. 1, 2016 and Jan. 31, 2017
  • Currently, the Invisalign Teen Guarantee is currently offered by participating orthodontists in Denver, Houston, Boston and Minneapolis.

More info about Invisalign Teen:

  • Invisalign Teen treatment is just as effective as traditional braces and costs about the same, but with the added benefits of being virtually invisible and removable so teen confidence and lifestyle is not compromised during treatment.
  • Invisalign Teen clear aligners can correct most common and complex teeth straighten concerns. A consultation with a doctor experienced in Invisalign Teen treatment will confirm teens are a candidate.
  • Teens straightening teeth with Invisalign Teen clear aligners don’t experience the negative impacts of treatment in the same way that teens in traditional braces do.
  • Teens wearing Invisalign Teen are 68% less likely to be teased than those wearing metal braces.*
  • Forty percent of teens think that wearing traditional braces would have or has had a negative impact on their self-confidence, while just 13% say this about Invisalign treatment*
  • Invisalign Teen clear aligners are removable and can straighten teeth without a mouth full of metal and all the hassle that comes with it — no broken wires or brackets, no food restrictions, no cut up gums after sports, no worries making music, singing or acting.

My daughter is dying to hear more about if Invisalign Teen will be right for her. She likes the idea of the clean, clear look. Both of my kids love the idea of being able to remove them while they eat. I like that they will have the freedom to brush and floss their teeth better AND the Invisalign Teen Guarantee sounds amazing to me.

What a local expert says:

“I am pleased to see there is a satisfaction guarantee that backs the treatment with Invisalign Teen clear aligners and look forward to more parents being open to trying Invisalign Teen treatment,” said Dr. Menachem Roth, Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics, Boston, MA. “I highly recommend it to give them the confidence and satisfaction they need while straightening their teeth.”

    My son just got braces. He wasn’t a candidate for Invisalign but I wish he could have gotten them! Taking them out to eat would have been the best!

  2. Tara says:

    We haven’t had to worry about braces for our daughter. It’s great that this option is available at roughly the same cost.

  3. Stacie says:

    I wish we had this option when my oldest had to get braces. Being able to remove them would have been great.

  4. So great to have more options now, I mean as an adult I’m considering it. I hope my children won’t need it, but good to know options are out there!

  5. Alicia says:

    So great to hear about invisalign! My youngest is 7 and I know for sure he is going to need this in a few years!

  6. Melissa says:

    Thanks for sharing the Intel on Invisalign! I know a few parents who are ready to get their teens braces and after reading this post I think you offer some valuable insight they need to read before exploring the traditional braces route!

  7. My twins are 10 and they both need braces! I have a feeling, the next few years are going to be expensive! But I know it will be soooo worth it!

  8. Kathy says:

    I don’t have teens yet, but if they need braces they can definitely get them. I’ve heard a lot about Invisalign lately too. I guess we’ll see when they get older to see if they need them or not.

  9. We are looking into braces for our teenagers. I will have to see if Invisalign is an option for us. It looks like a great way to get straight teeth.

  10. Elizabeth Lampman says:

    Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth. I would love to look into it for my Daughter.

  11. Lisa Bristol says:

    I wish I could have had Invisalign when I was a kid. I had the medal braces that cut up the lips. My friends little guy needs braces. I will have to share this with his Mom.

  12. I have to say that I was lucky. I had good, straight teeth as did my daughter. I had considered braces when I was younger but my orthodontist told me that I didn’t need them. He was right!

    • Jenn says:

      You are very lucky! My parents both had nice teeth, but my brother and I did not seem to get that gene, nor did my kids.

  13. As a teen my parents decided against braces. its good to know that now a days there are more options out there for kids! I sure wouldn’t want to put my kids through having them.

  14. Wow, I can’t even tell she’s wearing them! My son has had braces for three years now, and they are blatantly obvious to everyone, especially him. :'(

  15. We recently went through this with my daughter. Her orthodontist told her she had the worst set of teeth he had seen in 20 years! She was missing teeth, she had too many teeth, they were crooked. Yikes!! 18 months later and the difference if between night and day.
