The social impact of braces is often of particular concern to teens still dealing with the vagaries of the wolves den that is High School. While orthodontic care is best performed when patients are young and their oral structures still soft and developing, some patients will find it difficult to face the social consequences. Invisalign for Teens provides all the benefits of orthodontic treatment without the stark visibility of metal braces. In addition to being less visible, they also have the benefit of being more comfortable to wear and not requiring the sacrifice of your child’s favorite foods or important social moments.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovation of the established orthodontic treatment that are braces. It makes use of transparent adjustment trays to accomplish the same results you get with braces. While they tend to be a bit more expensive than metal braces, they have less potential social repercussions and allow your child to experience their teen years unfettered by social stigma.
How Does Invisalign For Teens Work?
Invisalign works by using a series of adjustment trays to make gradual modifications to the alignment and spacing of your child’s teeth. As your child makes progress in adjusting their dental arrangement, they will move on to the next tray, each one being worn for a period of about two weeks or less for 22 hours each day. If the trays are worn less than this, then it may be necessary to wear each tray longer until the adjustment finishes.
What Are The Reasons I Should Choose Invisalign for Teens?
Steady use of the trays is the only way you’ll see results, but they can be removed for up to two hours a day. This means that your child will be able to indulge in their favorite foods, get school photos without braces, and experience other important milestones unfettered by braces. Reports from patients indicate that they are significantly more comfortable to wear than braces. The results achieved are just as satisfying as those experienced by patients with traditional braces. The transparent nature of the material the trays are made of means they’re less noticeable, and most patients wear them without anyone ever noticing their undergoing orthodontic care.
Will Invisalign Work For My Teens Needs?
Invisalign is an appropriate solution for many standard orthodontic concerns, especially those that involved misaligned teeth. In cases where the positioning of the jaw needs to be adjusted, Invisalign will not be able to meet your dental needs. A discussion with your dentist will reveal if Invisalign for Teens will work for your child’s needs.
