You know, by the time you are fully grown, you will have 32 teeth. There are four different types of teeth, each with a special role to play. Unfortunately, most of us were not endowed with perfectly straight, evenly spaced teeth. That’s life. And that’s why we do what we do!
Still, this can be hard to handle, especially are entering adolescence, that magical time when you become preoccupied with the way you look, and the way that others perceive you.
So, if your teenager has problematic teeth that are plagued by gaps, crowding, or crookedness, we can certainly help straighten things out. Their health and appearance can be greatly improved (and forever) through an orthodontic treatment. Who wouldn’t want that for themselves?
That said, most kids don’t look forward to a long, drawn-out treatment that cramps their style and worsens their look all the while. That’s why we suggest that you take a closer look at Invisalign as an option, since it has been modified to work on adolescent teeth.
Teens Love Invisalign
Your teen will love that Invisalign doesn’t have any impact on your appearance during treatment because this method does not require any clunky metal brackets or wires! On the contrary, these braces are clear!
Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign uses transparent, lightweight aligners made of plastic. These fit nicely over the teeth and are custom-built using advanced imagery to ensure a comfortable fit. The aligners gradually guide your teeth into the more preferred position in small increments, until it’s time to change aligners every two weeks or so.
There will be no painful adjustments, or wires to break or poke you in the soft tissues at the back of your mouth. Your teen will simply pop in the new aligners when appropriate, and they will be good to go.
Another reason your teen will love Invisalign is that maintenance of the aligners couldn’t be any easier. Special brushes and tools, that you need to keep braces clean, won’t be necessary. For cleaning, you simply remove the aligners and clean them under lukewarm water! Easy enough, right?
What’s more, since they’re removable, your teenager will have the ability to continue eating whatever their growing body demands without any restrictions.
When we are through, the results will be just as gorgeous as a traditional orthodontic treatment would deliver, but it won’t involve as much time or as many hassles.
In short, Invisalign is discreet, safe, fast and effective. What more could you ask for in a treatment for your teen?
