Treatment That Fits Your Lifestyle
At Backus Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and Invisalign for Teens helps us do that.
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
The Invisalign clear aligner system meets the unique needs of teens around Hoover without any metal wires or brackets. At your initial consultation, Dr. Jeff Backus will be able to determine if Invisalign for Teens is the best option for your unique smile.
Removable & Almost Invisible
Invisalign for Teens 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, Backus 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 for Teens, the aligners are completely removable, so you can eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want.
This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces!
Invisalign for Teens helps you focus on doing what you do best—being a teen. At your initial consultation with Dr. Jeff Backus, you’ll find out if Invisalign is a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Invisalign for Teens treatment is ideal for busy parents because you won’t need to bring your teen in to our Hoover office for emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you’ll get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less total "chair time."
The typical Invisalign for Teens patient sees Dr. Jeff Backus once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Ideal for Active Teens
Invisalign for Teens is an ideal choice for Hoover teens who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.
As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges. It’s hard to perform at your best while having to adapt to new metal brackets and wires in your mouth!
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and Dr. Jeff Backus’ expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.
Cost of Invisalign in Hoover
At Backus Orthodontics, we understand that every patient's needs are different. Many factors determine the cost of Invisalign treatment, and in most cases, the cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces and covered by most dental insurance plans in Alabama.
Financing options are also available to make Invisalign more affordable for your family. The Backus Orthodontics team is here to answer any questions regarding financing, payment plans, and insurance claims.
Talk to Backus 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 Backus Orthodontics, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Jeff Backus will recommend Invisalign patients to 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. Jeff Backus can advise you about what options are best for you.
