Invisalign in South Miami, Pinecrest & Kendall
Your Teen Will Love Invisalign®
Invisalign created a system that meets the special needs of teens. Invisalign for Teens can be a great clear option for Miami teens shying away from traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional metal bracket braces, and since Dr. Ross and Dr. Rothenberg are experts at treating patients with Invisalign, they can give you stunning results.
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign for Teens helps your child focus on doing what they do best—being a teen.
The Invisalign for Teens aligners are made of a clear plastic material that’s nearly invisible. Your teen's friends probably won’t even know they're wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal, teens can enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day.
They probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are completely removable, allowing your teen to eat all of your favorite foods whenever they want.
This also means your teen can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces!
Whether your child plays sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold them back from enjoying the things they want to. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet.
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance and there is less “chair time” at each visit.
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Miami and the surrounding areas because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
On average, Dr. Ross sees his Invisalign for Teens patients once every 8 weeks for a total treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Doesn't Cost More than Traditional Braces
Your teen’s needs are unique, and many factors will determine the cost of Invisalign treatment. In most cases, Invisalign is a similar price as traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans.
Orthodontics of South Miami offers you financing options to help make Invisalign more affordable for your family.
Able to Correct Many Cases
When used appropriately and in the right cases, Dr. Ross can use Invisalign to correct an array of orthodontic problems.
Invisalign Teen can help correct the following ortho issues:
- Crowded teeth
- Spaced teeth
- Deep bite
- Open bite
Easier to Keep Clean
Aligners with Orthodontics of South Miami are often more hygienic than braces because it is much easier to clean your teeth when there are no braces to get in the way.
This also helps your teeth stay clean and white throughout treatment with reduced risk of demineralization.
Great for Active Teens in South Miami
As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
Invisalign for Teens effectively straightens teeth the same way metal braces do. Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for teens in Miami who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at school events or special occasions.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign, Pinecrest teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Help Your Teen’s Treatment Stay on Track
To help your teen stay on track with treatment, Invisalign for Teens offers a couple of different features, including:
- Monitoring tabs to help our team ensure if your teen is wearing the aligners properly
- A certain amount of replacement aligners are included in treatment, just in case your teen misplaces them
While you can remove your aligners for special occasions, it’s crucial to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day as directed by Dr. Ross for them to do their job and straighten your teeth.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Ross will provide a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
