Why Your Teen Will Love Invisalign Milton, GA
Woman with invisalign

You may not be able to control whether or not your teen needs orthodontic treatment, but with today’s modern solutions, you can certainly choose to make it less bearable. While most people are less than thrilled at the thought of getting metal braces, these unsightly brackets and wires can be especially unwelcome by a teenager.

Adolescence is not only a time of gaining independence, but it is a stage in life when peer influence and social acceptance is heightened. Acne, awkward body shapes and changing voices are just a few of the obstacles that teens face when trying to feel confident or fit in. However, by choosing Invisalign Teen, their orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be an addition to that list of struggles. With this modern clear aligner therapy, your teen can attain a straight and beautiful smile without the embarrassment, inconvenience and discomfort of metal braces.

Invisalign Teen works just like Invisalign for adults. You’ll be given a set of custom-made aligners to change out every couple of weeks until your teeth move into ideal position. You’ll be happy to know these aligners are made of clear comfortable plastic, and they can be removed for eating and brushing. This creates the following advantages tailored for teens:

Smile with Confidence
Go ahead and smile proudly for those yearbook photos because your Invisalign trays won’t be noticeable. No more hiding your smile as you pose for selfies with your friends either!
Avoid Frequent Appointments
With Invisalign, we don’t need to see you nearly as much as we would if you had traditional braces. Invisalign doesn’t require frequent tightening and adjustment appointments. We will check in with you every 4 to 6 weeks to monitor your progress.
Enjoy that Popcorn and Candy at the Movies
It can be difficult to say no to candy, popcorn and other foods that are restricted when you are wearing traditional braces as a teenager. With Invisalign Teen, you can easily remove your aligners while you indulge in your favorite snack or candy with your friends.
End Your Treatment with a Healthy, White Smile
Since Invisalign Teen allows you to remove your aligners to brush and floss each day, you’ll be able to stay on top of your oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment. Many teens in braces are faced with puffy gums (mild gingivitis) and unsightly tooth stains when their braces finally come off.
Added Features Just for Teens
The makers of Invisalign went above and beyond to make this orthodontic solution a perfect fit for a teenager’s lifestyle. In fact, they’ve added some extra features. In the teen version, there is a Blue Dot Wear Indicator that alerts teens and parents when the aligners need to be replaced. In addition, you’ll notice Eruption Tabs that allow space for your molars to come in if needed.

I was skeptical about going back into braces. Since this was my second round, I wanted something fast and affordable. I met with Dr. Patel and he was fantastic! He gave me different options, he was very detailed and he answered all my questions.

Dr. Patel is a gem of a person. My daughter is getting braces dine and dr. and staff make sure my daughter is comfortable with the treatment. Dr. Patel explains entire process patiently and gives time to answer any question we may have. Our experience is great and I strongly refer Dr. Patel for yours or your kid's orthodontics needs...

Highly recommend Milton Dental Specialists!! They were so sweet to my daughter and took extra time and effort to make her enjoy her experience and be comfortable! As a parent this is much appreciated! My daughter left smiling and excited to have her teeth cleaned. Thank you Dr. Chong and Renal!

An inviting waiting room with the front desk staff greeting me with a smile. Staff was very educated answering as many questions as possible since it was my first consultation for orthodontic help. Dr. Patel was VERY personable giving me all of the options for a plan of action the crowding of my teeth, and gave me all the information (time length, issues to be concerned with, financial differences) to help me choose the best plan for me. His details helped me to feel very comfortable with having to get braces as a female post 25+ years. I definitely recommend him as an orthodontist in the Milton/ North Atlanta area if you are looking for one. Best thing is that the first consultation was absolutely free!

Jagdeep S.

Very happy with Milton Demtal Specialists. Having a dentist and orthodontist in one location makes dental exams easy while wearing braces. They have great hours and are very accommodating for kids in school who don’t want to miss school for orthodontic or dental work. Very happy with both the dentist and orthodontist.
