Traditional braces have been a popular option for decades, but Invisalign has become an increasingly popular alternative in recent years, especially for teens. Dr. Petr Vaughan is a certified Invisalign dentist in Cincinnati, offering comprehensive, clear orthodontic aligners here in our office with no need for additional referrals.
Invisalign is a type of clear aligner system that is designed to straighten teeth without the use of traditional braces. Invisalign Teen is a special line of Invisalign treatments designed specifically for teenagers.
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear plastic material and are virtually invisible when worn. They are custom-made to fit your teen's teeth and should be worn for about 22 hours per day. Invisalign Teen is a great option for teenagers who want to straighten their teeth without the appearance of traditional braces.
There are many benefits to Invisalign treatment, ranging from improved oral health and function to enhanced self-confidence.
In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign aligners are removable. This means that your teen can eat and drink whatever they want without worrying about damaging their braces. The aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces, as they do not have any brackets or wires that can irritate the mouth.
Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, and bite issues. Dr. Vaughan and his team will evaluate your child's teeth and determine if Invisalign is the best option for their individual needs.
Because Invisalign is removable, your teen will need to be fairly responsible and committed to the success of their treatment. Forgetting to wear their trays or change them out as directed could result in delayed results or damage to their teeth. But if they can commit to wearing their aligners all day—except when they’re eating—Invisalign is an excellent choice!
Insurance and financing options are also available for Invisalign treatment. Many dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost of Invisalign for teens, and financing options are available for those without coverage or who want to supplement their insurance benefits. Our treatment coordinators will work with you to determine the best payment options for your family.
