INVISALIGN FOR TEENS
Misaligned or crooked teeth have a huge impact on the appearance of our smiles, and for most teenagers, it can take a toll on their self-esteem and confidence. This is why many parents opt for their teenagers to get braces for treatment. However, braces are very obvious especially when they are metal, and we can get pretty conscious of them. Thankfully, Invisalign eliminates all these worries, so you can treat your dental problems and get the smile you desire. Our professionals at Amherst Village Dental treat teenagers with crowded teeth, misaligned teeth, gapped or crooked teeth with Invisalign for a perfect outcome.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN?
Invisalign is a set of plastic aligners that we use to straighten the misaligned teeth of our patients. They are made from BPA-free plastics that are clear and appear almost invisible when placed. Unlike traditional metal braces, they are removable and treat your crooked teeth without being obvious. As teenagers, while your jawbone is still developing, you should already have most of your adult teeth. At this point, correcting misalignments and crookedness is easier than waiting until you are an adult.
How Does Invisalign For Teens Work?
The procedure for getting Invisalign for teenagers is the same as with adults. Our professionals will confirm if you are a candidate for the Invisalign treatment. Once you are certified fit, we will take a series of digital x-rays of your mouth and teeth. The measurements obtained will be used to design your own Invisalign set. These aligners are personalized for each patient, so you cannot use one from another patient.
Your aligners come in a set that you will wear for a particular period and change at an appointed date. Each aligner in the set is made to treat your dental issues in continuity from the previous one. You will be required to come in on scheduled dates so that our professionals can monitor the progress. Once the treatment is over, you can enjoy your new smile, with improved oral capacities.
Benefits Of Invisalign For Teens
From its name, one benefit is how it is almost invisible. Most teenagers are usually conscious of their appearance with traditional metal braces, and with Invisalign, that is the last thing you have to worry about. Unless someone really comes close to observing your mouth, they may not notice that you have Invisalign on.
Furthermore, using Invisalign is more comfortable. The plastic material used is soft and completely smooth. They fit snugly on the teeth and do not cause any irritation. They are even safer than braces with wires and brackets, as they pose no danger of pokes and cuts in the mouth. In fact, patients often forget they have Invisalign on.
With Invisalign, you can eat whatever food you want without worries that they will get trapped in the intricacies of wires and brackets. Actually, their removability means that you can take them off during meals if you want. This removability makes it easier for you to clean your mouth and keep great oral hygiene.
Also, you do not require any lengthy procedure to get your Invisalign fixed.
