Clear Aligners Treatment for Teens
We want our teen patients in Searcy and Heber Springs to feel excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and clear aligners for teens help Dr. Powell do just that.
Clear aligners at Hometown Orthodontics don't use bulky, visible brackets, wires, or bands like traditional braces.
Removable & Almost Invisible
Clear aligners for teenagers are made of see-through clear plastic and are almost invisible. Your friends around Heber Springs probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of sporting metal braces, our teenage clear aligners patients at Hometown Orthodontics enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day.
You probably have friends with braces who can’t chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn or whole apples. With clear aligners for teens, the trays 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!
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet!
Clear aligners for teens help you focus on doing what you do best: being a teen! At your initial consultation with Dr. Powell, you’ll find out if clear aligners for teens are a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Benefits of Clear Aligners
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Treatment with clear aligners for teens is ideal for busy parents in Searcy, Heber Springs, and surrounding areas because you won’t need to come in for emergency appointments to fix broken wires or brackets.
Clear aligners for teens often require fewer appointments than traditional metal braces because you get your clear aligners in advance, and each visit requires less "chair time."
Our typical teenage patients see Dr. Powell once every eight weeks for an average clear aligner treatment time of 9 to 15 months.
Great for Active Teens
Clear aligners for teens effectively straighten teeth the same way metal braces do. Clear aligners for teens are an ideal choice for teens in Searcy and Heber Springs who play sports or 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.
With the clear, comfortable technology of clear aligners and Dr. Powell’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.

Talk to Hometown Orthodontics About Clear Aligners
Dr. Powell may not recommend clear aligners for certain complex alignment or bite issues, but at your first free consultation, Dr. Powell will be able to determine if your teen is a candidate for clear aligners.
It’s important to wear your clear aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. However, with clear aligners from Hometown Orthodontics, you can remove your trays for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Powell will recommend wearing a retainer after clear aligners treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
