Are Braces the Only Option in Orthodontic Treatment for Teenagers? by Dr. Nick Reynolds, Northeast Orthodontics

Many parents come to my office thinking that braces are the only option for their teenager’s orthodontic needs. In many cases, braces are the best solution to

achieve the smile and bite their teenager deserves. However, braces are not the only solution.

Invisalign, one of the most widely known and used clear aligner companies, offers a “virtually invisible” tool for our office to use to treat your teenagers. For those of you who are not familiar with the technology, Invisalign allows orthodontists to see and manipulate your teeth in a three-dimensional computerized interface, and design a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth and improve your bite. Where traditional braces are designed to be glued to the teeth, and a series of wires utilized to straighten the teeth and improve the bite, clear aligners like the ones manufactured by Invisalign, provide a removable option. Every teenager is unique in their personalities, desires, and treatment needs. Our office meets teens that think of traditional braces as a fashion

statement that can’t wait to pick the color ties to match their clothes. Then we meet some of their friends that can’t stomach the thought of having orthodontic braces on their teeth for the remainder of Middle School. Everyone is different! It’s comforting to me as a provider, and to the concerned parent, to know that there are options for every child. With the advances in technology, in the hands of the right provider, Invisalign can treat almost every orthodontic issue that traditional braces can. Having this tool in our tool box, has allowed us to motivate the teenager that doesn’t want metal braces, to still undergo treatment to attain the beautiful and handsome smile they deserve. Invisalign’s product for teenagers is aptly named Invisalign Teen. While very similar to their adult product, one
