Your Teen Will Love Invisalign® Treatment
At Embrace Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth. Invisalign Teen helps us do that. Invisalign doesn't use brackets, wires and bands like traditional braces.
Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teens. At your initial consultation, Dr. Li will determine if Invisalign for Teens is the best option for your unique smile.
Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing your Invisalign for Teens aligners, because they’re made of clear plastic and almost invisible.
Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal, Embrace Orthodontics Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smile every day.
You probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign for Teens, the aligners are completely removable. You can eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want.
You won’t have any trouble keeping your teeth clean. Brushing and flossing will be as easy as ever. Try that with braces.
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges. 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!
Invisalign for Teens helps you focus on doing what you do best-being a teen. At your initial consultation with Dr. Li, you’ll find out if Invisalign is a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Doesn't Cost More than Traditional Braces
Your needs are unique. Many factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatment. In most cases, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans.
Financing options are also available to make Invisalign more affordable for your family. The Embrace Orthodontics team will happily answer any questions regarding financing, payment plans, and insurance claims.
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents in Ann Arbor and surrounding areas. You won’t have to worry about emergency appointments, because there aren’t any wires or brackets to break. Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less "chair time."
The typical Invisalign for Teens patient sees Dr. Li once every 8 weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens
Invisalign for Teens effectively straightens teeth the same way metal braces do. If you’re a teen in Ann Arbor who plays sports, instruments, loves crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook, it may be the perfect choice for you.
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.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and Dr. Li’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day so they can do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Li will recommend Invisalign patients to wear a retainer after treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
