No two teen smiles are the same, which is why we’re constantly customizing our treatment to our teen patients. This allows our office to deliver a unique, customized teeth-straightening solution that’s more precise and keeps your teen moving forward.
With the Invisalign® system’s proprietary innovations, such as SmartTrack® material, your teen’s smile can transform up to 50% faster.*
Your teen’s smile journey begins with a scan or impressions from the iTero® scanner. We will work closely with Invisalign treatment specialists to develop a complete digital treatment plan to plot your teen’s best smile with care from start to finish.
Your teen will receive Invisalign clear aligners created with the Invisalign system’s proprietary SmartTrack material. Throughout treatment, you can monitor your son’s or daughter’s compliance through an indicator on the aligner. Your teen will wear the aligners for 22 hours per day, but can easily remove them so there are fewer interruptions to his or her lifestyle.
As your teen progresses through treatment, his or her smile and life will transform through a series of small, expertly designed shifts. And with the Invisalign Teen Guarantee, you have the option to switch to wires and brackets if your teen decides against Invisalign treatment within the first six months.
Invisalign treatment gives both you and your teen a better teeth-straightening experience when compared to traditional braces.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign for Teens in Statesville, NC?
If your teen needs orthodontic treatment, you may be surprised to hear that you have options. Braces are the tried and true method of straightening teeth, but some teens may see the same level of success with Invisalign. Let’s look over some of the common reasons our patients choose Invisalign treatment over braces here!
1. No Dietary Restrictions
With removable aligners, teens have no dietary restrictions. Braces require diligence not to eat foods that may knock off the brackets of the braces. With Invisalign, simply remove the aligners before eating and you’re good to go!
2. No Need To Worry About Broken Braces Or Wires
If your teen does choose to eat problem foods with braces, then they risk knocking their brackets loose or pulling their wires out of the braces. In the case of this, your teen will need to visit our office to get the problem repaired. With Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires, so no problems here!
3. Easy For Teens To Brush And Floss Teeth Normally
With traditional braces, children have to be diligent to floss and brush around the appliance. Sometimes braces get in the way and make oral hygiene difficult for children to maintain. Clear aligners can be removed before brushing or flossing, so Invisalign eliminates this problem altogether!
* With weekly aligner changes, compared with two-week aligner wear.
