About Invisalign® for Teenagers in Walterboro
At Holland Maness Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be as excited about starting their journey to straight teeth as we are, and Invisalign for Teens helps Dr. Maness do just that.
Clear aligner options like Invisalign for Teens are amazing for teenagers around Walterboro because it allows for dramatic orthodontic adjustments to occur without anyone noticing.
Removable & Practically Invisible
Clear aligners like Invisalign or ClearCorrect use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. They let Dr. Maness straighten your teeth, so you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
Clear aligners refer to a series of clear overlay templates (called aligners) that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. These systems are available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems.
Your clear aligners are custom-made, removable, and clear, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. You can still eat and drink whatever you want, and you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth.
Clear aligners like Invisalign create a system to meet the unique lifestyles of teenagers all across southern South Carolina.
Invisalign doesn't use brackets, wires, and bands like traditional braces. At your first consultation, Dr. Maness will be able to determine if Invisalign for Teens is a good fit for your unique smile.
Clear aligners are made of clear plastic and are practically invisible, so your friends around Walterboro probably won’t even know you’re wearing them.
Instead of sporting gleaming metal braces, Holland Maness Orthodontics Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day while still noticing drastic improvement.
You probably have friends around Walterboro with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn or whole apples. With Invisalign for Teens, the aligners are completely removable, so you can eat all of your favorite foods whenever you like.
This also means you can easily continue brushing and flossing without special tools, equipment or techniques. Try that with braces.
Whether you’re a musician, an athlete, a speech-and-debater, or something else, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges to pursuing your passions. It can be hard to perform at your best if you’re struggling to hit that note on the clarinet while getting used to the shape of your new braces, or if you’re distracted during a basketball game because you’re working overtime to avoid an accidental elbow shot to your braces.
Invisalign for Teens helps you focus on doing what you do best—being a teen. At your initial consultation with Dr. Maness, you’ll find out how Invisalign can be a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Benefits of Clear Aligners for Teens
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Clear aligner treatment for teens is ideal for busy parents in Walterboro and the surrounding area because you won’t need to come in for emergency appointments to fix broken wires or brackets.
Clear aligners often require fewer appointments than traditional metal braces overall because you get sets of your aligners in advance, and each visit requires less overall "chair time."
The typical clear aligner teen patient sees Dr. Maness once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 6 to 15 months.
Great for Busy Teens
Clear aligners efficiently and reliably straighten teeth in the same way metal braces do. Invisalign or ClearCorrect for Teens is an ideal choice for Walterboro teens who play sports, practice certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look in the yearbook or at prom.
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.
With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and the expert care of Dr. Maness, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.

Talk to Holland Maness 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 Holland Maness Orthodontics, you can remove your aligners for job interviews, playing an instrument or sport, and other special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Maness will prescribe a retainer after clear aligner treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect may not be recommended for more complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework; our doctors can advise you about what options are best for you.
