For many teenagers, the process of straightening their teeth with traditional metal braces interferes with eating, speaking, and maintaining clean teeth. Metal braces can also cause self-consciousness and embarrassment, causing teens to feel less confident and smile less. Dr. T.C. Hardy uses Invisalign Teen® to provide teenagers with a way to straighten their teeth that is nearly undetectable.

Parents! Do you have questions about Invisalign for your teenager? How does it work? How can I tell if my teen is wearing their aligner? What happens if we lose an aligner? Contact Dr. Hardy and his team today by calling us at (970) 400-9984 or send an email to! You can also fill out the form below.

Invisalign Teen® is a version of Invisalign® that is designed for the unique needs of teenagers. Using a system of clear custom-fit aligners, this orthodontic method of correcting crooked and unevenly spaced teeth or bite issues allows patients to eat, drink, and clean their teeth with ease. Because the aligners are removable, Invisalign Teen® also permits patients to wear mouth guards during sports or remove the appliance while playing an instrument. Our patients at Taft Hill Orthodontics enjoy the comfort and convenience Invisalign Teen® provides, and they are able to achieve straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile with minimal impact on their daily lives.

    Why Should I Choose Dr. T.C. Hardy in Fort Collins?

    A crucial step in addressing your orthodontic needs is finding a reputable and skilled orthodontist you can trust. Though many general dentists offer Invisalign Teen®, an orthodontist has spent two to three additional years of continued education after completing dental school to earn advanced education and training in a specialized orthodontic residency program. Dr. Hardy in Fort Collins was extensively trained on correcting misaligned teeth, adjusting occlusion (the way the teeth fit together), and treating jaw disorders at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.
