Why Invisalign Teen is Perfect for Your Athlete

Are you worried that braces will interfere with your child’s busy schedule? Invisalign treatment works with your child’s schedule so they won’t miss the after-school sports, band practice or acting club tryouts just because they want to straighten their teeth. At Fishbein Orthodontics, we have state of the art technology, including our Itero Element 2 Scanner, making appointments quicker and easier than ever before.

The Invisalign treatment moves your teeth through the use of clear aligners. Each aligner is worn 22 hours a day for about one week with regular office visits every twelve to sixteen weeks to check orthodontic progress. There are many benefits to Invisalign including aesthetics, time efficiency, comfort, and efficiency.

Invisalign Teen is great for active lifestyles, as there is no danger of brackets or wires poking the mouth during sports or athletic activity. The aligners can be worn or removed if desired during intense sporting activities and there is no worry over the injury to the soft tissues of the mouth. Sometimes a player will need to remove the aligner to replace it with an official mouthguard during practice or a game. This is a game changer for teens who need orthodontics.

Fishbein Orthodontics is the only practice in Northwest Florida with the recognition of being a Diamond Plus Provider. We have successfully treated over 1,500 Invisalign patients over the last 5 years, and are ready to meet you and your teen!

To see if your teen is an Invisalign candidate, set up a free consultation online or by phone. Our consultations are 100% complimentary and can be made at any one of our eight convenient locations in Pensacola, Pace, Navarre, Perdido, Fort Walton, Niceville, Cantonment and Crestview. We look forward to creating that winning smile for your athlete.
