orthodontic options for teens

At Foote Orthodontics, we offer a full spectrum of orthodontic procedures to ensure your teen gets the treatment they need to straighten their smile and boost their confidence. Clear aligners are a great option for some patients, but not all.

custom 3D printed braces at foote orthodontics

We offer several options to help achieve your perfect smile: custom 3D printed LightForce braces or clear aligners.

‍We utilize state-of-the-art custom 3D printed braces from LightForce. Braces from LightForce are digitally designed and 3D printed specifically for your smile. The brackets conform exactly to your teeth to give you better results more quickly, comfortably, and precisely. This optimizes tooth movement, comfort for the patient, and results in reduced treatment time and overall fewer appointments.

what are clear aligners?

With clear aligner treatment at Foote Orthodontics, your teen can still do all the things they love to do. Sports, musical events, goofing around with friends—Invisalign keeps all of these accessible. And for special occasions, the aligners can be taken out temporarily, so you can smile with confidence for every important event.

Our clear aligner treatment is the same cost as braces, and our initial consultations are always complimentary, so straighter smiles are readily available to everyone. Interested in a consultation? Call today! We are happy to serve patients at our locations in Bryn Mawr and Wayne.

how do clear aligners work?

Getting started with clear aligners is easy. We use a 3D scanner to create an image of your teen’s teeth that will be used to make the aligners. After scanning, a series of custom aligners will be designed to fit snugly and to be worn progressively until orthodontic treatment is complete.

Aligners are worn full time and removed only for eating, brushing and flossing. Because the system is removable, your teen has the freedom to eat whatever foods they enjoy, and it’s much easier for them to keep their teeth clean.

Aligners are also ideal for busy schedules. With no wires to poke or brackets to break, there are typically longer intervals between appointments, and fewer emergency appointments to attend.

why the main line is choosing foote orthodontics

"I had an initial consultation for Invisalign and could not have been more impressed with the entire experience. Jan (the orthodontic assistant) was so fantastic, so knowledgeable and so reassuring. She took time to explain the entire process after taking photos, impressions and a digital scan of my mouth which was very high tech. I met Dr Foote after for a consult and felt immediately comfortable. I had considered doing Invisalign through a dentist office however it is so clear to me now just how advantageous it is to go through this process with an actual orthodontist. Invisalign/orthodontia is nuanced and I want someone who specializes and does this all day long. My consultation was exactly that- detailed and specific and I think that will make all the difference. Looking forward to starting the process and I’m even making an appointment for my kids for their initial braces consultation."
