Invisalign for teenagers in Folsom and Davis, CA

Did you know? Teenagers are statistically proven to wear their Invisalign aligners more consistently than adults.

Hi, my name is Dr. Kelleher. People seem to always get a kick out of the “did you know” stat above. My experience used to be that when kids wore orthodontic devices well, they usually had an adult making sure they followed through.

A couple of things I would like to discuss

First, if you are a teenager reading this, I know what it is like to grow up with teeth not properly aligned. It can be hard and can sometimes cause self-consciousness. Teeth that look really crooked or that cause a weird bite can affect your self-confidence.

In fact, that self-consciousness was one of the main reasons I became an orthodontist. I didn’t want others to feel stressed or to lack confidence, when changing all that, for the better, is not so difficult to do! Rest assured, we will take great care of you and will give you the gorgeous smile and confidence you deserve.

Invisalign is a great option if you play sports, sing in choir or do other activities that require practice or travel.
 For patients in college, Invisalign is an amazing option of treatment because we can monitor your progress virtually, for many months, via phone images.

Aligners involve less appointment times. Aligners also allow us to monitor your progress, virtually, for many of your appointments. Treatment times tend to be faster and more predictable because the automation of consistent orthodontic force, coming from plastic, is more efficient than braces often allow.

Invisalign for teens is almost invisible

Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen have made headlines and celebrities and sports athletes have praised Invisalign for their orthodontic treatment. Almost all people can benefit from discreet orthodontic treatment, unlike traditional braces which are easily seen.

Invisalign Teen offers an attractive alternative compared to traditional braces for teens who enjoy activities of all types and do not want to compromise their quality of life. For example, when eating with Invisalign Teen simply remove the aligners and store in their case. Removable aligners make a lot of activities easier!
