A beautiful smile is a major part of anyone’s self-esteem and self-confidence, and that’s even truer during your child’s teenage years. Unfortunately, those are the years that most kids have to wear braces! While metal braces offer a dependable, reliable option for orthodontic treatment, the team of orthodontists at Children’s Dental & Orthodontics is proud to offer Invisalign as an alternative, more discrete option to braces. If you have a teenager in need of orthodontic treatment, we would love to help. To schedule a first visit, please contact our office today.
As mentioned above, the way your teeth look directly effects how you feel about yourself. This is especially true for teenagers in their most memorable years—high school. If they have crooked teeth, attaching metal brackets and wires for a traditional orthodontic treatment will not help their self-esteem and take way too long to achieve the results they want. Here are a few reasons why Invisalign is the perfect treatment for your teen.
Invisalign works fast—often in less than a year—to give patients the smiles they want and deserve without having to sacrifice their high school memories with pictures of metal in their mouths. Your teen will simply wear the aligners for two-week periods, systematically moving forward with the treatment as directed by their dentist.
Because Invisalign aligners are removable, they’re easy to clean and enjoy your favorite foods. Brushing and flossing your teeth is much easier than compared to dental hygiene routines that involve braces. Plus, when it’s time to eat, your child will only have to remove the aligners for a short period of time.
The beginning of any dental treatment or procedure begins with a scheduled consultation here at our office. This will kickstart your potential Invisalign treatment by allowing your dentist to view your child’s mouth and evaluate the current state of their oral health. This also helps your dentist to better understand if Invisalign is the very best treatment for them.
One of the best ways to invest in your child is to invest in their oral health by straightening your teeth. You can avoid dental problems in the future by fixing protruding teeth and straightening them into the correct positions. Plus, you’ll reduce the chance of developing tooth decay that can lead to other dental concerns.
Our office would be more than happy to schedule your teen’s next visit with us during a time that fits within your busy schedules. Give us a call today! Our expert dental specialists can’t wait to meet you and discuss your smile goals.
