So your teenager needs orthodontic treatment. Big sigh. Chances are your teenager isn’t overjoyed at the thought of braces. And you probably aren’t overjoyed at the thought of an unhappy, grumpy teenager refusing to comply with treatment.
Don’t worry, Invisalign is here! More teenagers than ever are choosing Invisalign for their orthodontic treatment, and they’re just as effective as braces, minus some of the hassle.
Invisalign and Self-Confidence
Teenagers want to look cool. That’s a simple truth, and braces aren’t always seen as “cool”. That’s why Invisalign is becoming so popular, not just for adults working in the professional world, but teenagers as well. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them more desirable to teenagers.
It’s not just about looks though. Certain things are easier with Invisalign, such as brushing and flossing properly. You can take them out to eat, and you don’t have to worry about rubber bands breaking, or food getting caught up in metal brackets.
Invisalign aligners use gentler teeth movements than braces to work, making them a less painful option for straightening teeth. There are no cumbersome rubber-bands to deal with, and they’re safer to wear, and less likely to break during sports and other physical activities.
Let’s face it, we’re living in a world of selfies and Facebook. Not every teenager is confident enough to smile big with a mouth full of metal. And there’s nothing wrong with wanting your teenager to feel self-confident, and to smile broadly for their school pictures!
Expert Care for Invisalign Treatment
We are a VIP Elite Invisalign Provider. This means that we have a long history of Invisalign treatment cases, literally thousands of them! We will take on the tough cases, and complete them successfully!
Many of my patients come in, having been told that surgical extractions are necessary for their orthodontic treatment. I will do everything in my power to provide care without the use of surgery or extractions. I have been an orthodontist for over 25 years, and consistently providing non-surgical, non-extraction care is one of my proudest accomplishments.
Orthodontic care can be scary for some people, and we use a confident yet gentle approach with our patients. We also use some of the best technology there is, making the whole process easier for everyone. For example, we use the Fotona Laser for our impressions, meaning no yucky, gagging sessions with gross material shoved into your mouth.
