If you have a teenager in your life, you know that their adolescent years are going to be filled with all sorts of unique challenges, changes, and triumphs. They certainly don’t need to add another complication to this incredibly busy section of their lives.
Unfortunately, if your teen needs a dental appliance to help correct their smile, they could be looking at an entire two years of headgear and adjustments if you go with traditional, bracketed braces.
But don’t fret just yet! Thanks to the wonderful oral care professionals at our office, there are quicker alternatives that may be right for your teen. This includes the incredible Invisalign clear braces.
What Is Invisalign?
The Invisalign system is an innovative dental technology that has impacted many lives for the better. They are a clear (nearly invisible) appliance that fits snuggly and comfortably over the teeth.
Your teen’s Invisalign treatment will last several months in which they will wear new aligners every couple weeks. The series of aligners work together to gradually move your teen’s teeth into their proper place.
What’s the Difference?
Traditional braces require so many wires, brackets, headgear, and adjustments to maintain the constant pulling force against certain teeth and areas of the mouth. This will gradually reshape your teen’s mouth as the orthodontist has planned.
If you’ve had braces yourself, you probably remember that this process is no picnic. It can be painful, long, and tedious. This isn’t the case with Invisalign clear braces, which are:
- Made from medical-grade plastic, which allows for a much more comfortable experience.
- Effective by gently applying corrective pressure to targeted areas of your teen’s mouth.
- A speedier means for your teen to get their straightest smile.
- A pain-free experience!
The difference will certainly be appreciated by your teen. They can say goodbye to the aching, jabbing, and clunkiness of metal braces.
What Makes Invisalign Clear Braces Great for Teens?
Here at Bayview Dental Center, we want to give you and your loved ones the dental care you deserve. That is why we make sure to offer a variety of treatment options, to ensure that each patient can get personalized care that meets their individual needs. With the Invisalign system, many teens have found their individual needs being met thanks to a few key features.
- Discretion: As the name implies, the Invisalign clear braces are made from transparent material making them virtually undetectable. For most teens, this is ideal, allowing their smiles to be straightened without having any distractions in a classroom or social setting.
- Comfortable: Clear braces are customized to rest comfortably in the mouth, so there will be no disruption of speech or pronunciation like some traditional braces cause. Invisalign makes sure there won’t be any interruption to your teen’s daily life.
- Removable: Life can be a whirlwind of experiences, especially for a teenager. Invisalign has anticipated this. They made sure that their clear braces could be removed, making sure they wouldn’t get in the way of any big event or important activity.
- Easy Care: Regular braces are a hassle. You have to watch what you eat, and then you have to spend several minutes thoroughly cleaning your braces after every meal. Invisalign can be removed for meals and when you brush your teeth. So much easier!
- Faster: Traditional braces have been known to take up to two years to completely correct some orthodontic issues. Invisalign clear braces can work much faster thanks to an in-depth analysis of a patient’s mouth and the patented technology of their braces.
- Accelerated Orthodontics: This is a simple procedure that can streamline the Invisalign process. If your teen is interested, they can achieve their ideal smile in as little as 90 days!
