Why You Should Bring Your Teen to See an Invisalign® Dentist

Invisalign DentistAs an Invisalign® dentist, we can straighten your teenager's teeth and give them a beautiful smile they can be confident to show off. In our dental office, we typically recommend Invisalign® for our adult patients, because clear aligners work best when you have all your permanent teeth. However, by the time your son or daughter reaches their senior year of high school, they will likely be a good candidate for this treatment. To find out, call and schedule an examination so we can determine the best way to straighten their teeth and answer any questions you have about the process.

Why teens love Invisalign®

When it comes to straightening teeth, many kids start as young as elementary school or middle school. This creates an opportunity to straighten teeth young before self-esteem becomes a major issue. This is an excellent idea, but at this young age, traditional metal braces are typically the best treatment solution. For kids who do not get orthodontics at a young age, they become teens who have to decide either to wear metal braces or live with a crooked smile. If your teen is not interested in either of these options, straightening their teeth with clear aligners is an ideal solution.

As an Invisalign® dentist, we know that most teens love Invisalign® because of how discreet this solution is. Instead of wearing metal braces that stand out, teens can wear clear aligners that are virtually invisible. This means their friends will barely notice they are undergoing an orthodontics treatment and instead of being worried about their appearance, they can actually feel better about it. With each new aligner, their teeth will appear straighter, so the benefits begin to show almost immediately, instead of them needing to wait until the orthodontic treatment is complete, like they would when wearing traditional braces.

Teens also enjoy how convenient this solution is. Traditional braces come with several distinct challenges. Since a metal bracket is placed on each tooth with a wire threaded between them, it is very easy for food to become stuck around the brackets and under the wires. As a result, most people have to adjust what they eat, how they eat, and even where they eat. This can be inconvenient for anyone, especially for busy teens who want to enjoy a simple slice of pizza. Invisalign® works completely differently. Since teeth are being straightened with clear, removable aligners, there is no risk of food becoming stuck. The aligners are supposed to come out when eating, so there is no need to adjust eating habits.

As an Invisalign® dentist, we also appreciate how much easier it is to care for teeth when wearing clear aligners. They come out easily when it is time to brush and floss teeth, which means food is unlikely to become stuck in between them and there is less of a risk of your teen developing cavities or stains during the treatment process. These are only a few benefits of wearing aligners. To learn more, call and schedule an appointment.
