The teenage years are usually equal parts wonderful and challenging. Dr. Sturgill and Dr. Storie were both teenagers themselves once and they can sympathize. With so much change going on in most of our patients’ lives at this age, throwing metal braces into the mix isn’t always ideal. That’s why we offer Invisalign Teen in our Johnson City, Tennessee and Norton, Virginia orthodontic offices. It provides the straightening power of braces without the brackets and wires that can make people feel self-conscious. The comfortable, convenient treatment lets patients continue to smile with confidence as their teeth shift into place.
It Can Be Your Secret
Invisalign Teen is created especially for a teenager’s mouth and the aligners are made with flexible, smooth, clear plastic. It’s virtually invisible and won’t put a damper on your social life since you’ll be able to flash your grin all throughout treatment without anyone knowing you’re straightening your teeth.
Popcorn, corn on the cob, whole apples, raw carrots and pizza crust are all still on the menu with Invisalign Teen. The aligners are removable and you can take them out to eat meaning there are zero food restrictions. You’ll also remove them to brush and floss your teeth so your oral hygiene won’t take a hit.
Do What You Love
While you can play sports or a musical instrument with braces, you do have to be careful about not cutting your lip from a ball to the face or while trying to hit a note on your saxophone. With Invisalign Teen, there’s no hardware getting in the way so you can continue to play on without any worries.
