Braces vs. Invisalign® Teen

Let’s face it. With school, sports, dating, and hanging out with friends, getting metal braces is not at the top of your list of favorite things to do. Guess what? With Invisalign® Teen®, you can straighten your teeth without metal wires and brackets getting in the way. You’re free to enjoy the things that make these the best times of your life



Invisalign® Teen aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible! Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth of metal, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day. And that can make for a better social life overall. See More Reasons why Invisalign® Teen may be right for you.


You 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 you to eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want. This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces.


Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold you back from enjoying the things you 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. Invisalign® Teen helps you focus on doing what you do best—being a teen.
