Luckily today there are a lot more affordable options other than the traditional metal braces. Invisalign Teen is an affordable and convenient treatment option that both you and your child will love. Invisalign, which involves placing clear plastic aligners on your teen’s teeth to move them instead of brackets and wires, is a safe and affordable alternative to metal braces, but with the same effective results.

And even better you can get high quality Invisalign Teen treatment for your child right here in Center City Philadelphia.

Here is why Center City ranks high for Invisalign Teen.

Getting to Appointments Is Easy

If you live in the Philadelphia area and don’t have a car at your disposal, commuting distance is going to be a big factor for you. You will want an orthodontist located in Center City where there are plenty of transportation options available to you. Just hop on the SEPTA El or take the train into the city. It is so easy. And if you live downtown, then you might even be able to walk to your orthodontic appointment.

And even if you have a car, with I-95 nearby, it is easy to get in and out of Center City no matter where in the Philadelphia area you live and work.

You Can Get Flexible Hours

Your life is hectic and finding time to squeeze in orthodontic appointments on a regular basis can seem difficult. That is why you need to go with an Invisalign Center City Philadelphia orthodontist. Center City orthodontic offices are known for having flexible hours and because they are conveniently located you can easily make an appointment before or after work and have no problem getting back and forth in record time.

Your Child Dreads Having a “Metal Mouth”

If one of the main reasons you have been dragging your heels about starting orthodontic treatment is the dreaded “metal mouth,” then definitely consider an Invisalign Teen Center City Philadelphia orthodontist.

Invisalign aligners are made of a clear plastic so no one will even know you have them on. And because they are easily removed for eating and for brushing and flossing, they are not hard to adjust to at all.

And by getting your Invisalign treatment in Center City, you are guaranteed to have the best treatment possible because Center City is a hot hub of the latest technology and science. It is the best place to go for the most advanced orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign Teen Means Better Compliance

No teen likes the idea of wearing metal braces for two to three years even if they are self-conscious by a crooked smile. But because Invisalign aligners are clear they will be less embarrassed about wearing them and therefore will be more compliant about wearing them and taking proper care of them.

Think about how much more confident your teen will feel.  We all know that the teenage years are tough because kids are so very image conscious. Why not help your teen feel better about herself during treatment and afterwards? You will love seeing all the positive changes in your teen.

The fact that Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable and convenient to wear and can be easily taken off to eat and brush and floss also means your child will also be more compliant in following the orthodontist’s instructions.

Invisalign Means a More Beautiful Smile

Because of its advanced technology, Invisalign treatment will provide your child with a more beautiful smile. Because the aligners are focusing on just a few teeth at a time, your orthodontist will be able to reposition them with much more precision.

So what is Invisalign Teen exactly? With Invisalign treatment, only a few teeth are moved at a time and your teen will receive new aligners every 2 weeks. With Invisalign, the orthodontist will show you a model of your teen’s teeth and explain the gradually repositioning process so that you and your teen know what to expect every step of the way.

You do need to make sure that your daughter or son wears the aligners for at least 22 hours every day. If he or she doesn’t wear them the recommended time, they won’t be as effective at repositioning your teeth. The great thing about Invisalign Teen is that the aligners have a usage indicator so your teen will know when they are not wearing them enough during the day and night.

The aligners can simply be brushed and then rinsed with warm water or your teen can use an Invisalign cleaning kit. While teens are more responsible than younger children are, you should still keep watch to make sure they are doing everything the orthodontist told them to do. If they don’t, they will only delay their treatment which will be frustrating for them and for you.

Overall though, Invisalign is just as effective as traditional braces and now orthodontists can add rubber bands to them if needed. Both you and your teen will love how little your teen’s life will be impacted while wearing Invisalign.
