Your teen will love Invisalign treatment
At Periago Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey toward straighter teeth, and Invisalign for teens helps us do that. Invisalign doesn’t use brackets, wires, and bands like traditional braces.
Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teens. At your initial consultation, Dr. Periago will be able to determine if Invisalign for teens is the best option for your unique smile.
Removable + almost invisible
The Invisalign Teen aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of sporting metal braces, Periago Orthodontics Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day.
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, so you can eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want. Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges. 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!
Easy to keep clean
This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces. Aligners are often more hygienic than braces because it’s far easier to clean your teeth when there aren’t any braces in the way. This also helps your teeth stay clean and white throughout treatment and reduces the chances of white spots caused by demineralization.

Talk to Periago Orthodontics about Invisalign
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign at Periago Orthodontics, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Periago recommends that her teen Invisalign patients wear a retainer after treatment to maintain their new alignment—and their confident new smiles.
Invisalign may not be recommended for some complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework; Dr. Periago can advise you about what options are best for your teen.
