Invisalign Works Wonders For Texas Teens
- Posted on: Oct 29 2016
If you have a teenager in need of orthodontic treatment, you are probably weighing the pros and cons of all the available options. You might be interested to know that we have some great alternative solutions to those attention-grabbing, time-consuming metal contraptions that most area practices feature.
Don’t get us wrong, conventional braces have had their place, and they have been utilized to transform an entire generation of smiles. It’s just that they have always left something to be desired. As such, we think you should consider Invisalign as an option since it has now been modified to work effectively on adolescent teeth, and it is the easiest way to get the job done.
Keep reading to hear more about the Invisalign program for teens, and then be sure to get in touch with Dr. Das to schedule your appointment in our Webster, TX dentist’s office.
Invisalign Changed The Rules
The first reason for choosing this route for your teen is clear: Invisalign doesn’t have any impact on your teen’s appearance because this method does not require any metal for shifting teeth. True story!
Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign uses transparent, lightweight aligners made of plastic. These fit snugly 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! That’s it!
Because they’re removable, your teenager will have the ability to continue eating whatever their growing body demands without any restrictions.
To put parents at ease, this version of Invisalign even comes with a built-in feature to hold your teen accountable. To see if they are doing what they need to do to keep the process moving forward, you can check the blue “compliance dot” on the rear of the aligners.
In the end, the results will be just as stunning as a conventional orthodontic treatment would deliver, but it won’t involve as much time or as many hassles. And your teen will love that they won’t have to sacrifice their appearance during treatment for the sake of improvements down the road.
Invisalign is safe, subtle, fast and effective. What more could you possibly want for your teen? To find out if this program will work for your teen, schedule your orthodontic consultation with Dr. Das.
