Why Teens Love Invisalign
Invisalign is a revolutionary new technology that has changed how teens feel about braces. With their clear aligners, these “invisible” aligners can move teeth just as well as braces, but no one will notice. Teens who use Invisalign often feel more confident and in control of their lives because no one can tell they are going through treatment. Also, the aligners are easy to take out and clean, just like if you didn’t have any orthodontic appliances at all. Teens don’t miss out on any of life’s activities because Invisalign aligners can be taken off before gym class or other activities.
How The Invisalign System Works
Even though Invisalign aligners are clear and discreet, they are very good at straightening teeth. Invisalign moves teeth gradually by using aligners that are custom-made, just for you. The aligners are made with advanced 3D technology and put measured forces on your teeth. This makes it easy and more comfortable to get the perfect smile.
Invisalign trays need to be worn every day, but you can take them out to eat and brush your teeth. Once you are used to wearing the custom-fit trays, taking them out and putting them back in will be second nature.
Parents can ask for an optional Blue Dot monitoring feature if they want to make sure their teen is wearing the trays correctly. With this feature, parents can quickly check aligner trays to make sure their kids are wearing them for the right amount of time each day.
Invisalign works best for teenagers who want to straighten their smiles quickly and are willing to wear their aligners as often as they need to. Invisalign Teen is a treatment that is focused on the patient. This means that the success of the treatment depends on the patient’s participation.
Is My Teen A Candidate For Invisalign?
When it comes to orthodontic care for teens, Invisalign is definitely a good choice. This clear aligner system is easy to use, and patients can take out their aligners to brush, floss, eat, or for special events. With Invisalign Teen, you can be sure that your teen will receive a treatment plan that is made just for them and that Dr. Liatti will keep a close eye on their progress.
If you’re considering Invisalign for your teen, here are several signs to look out for that suggest they’re ready:
- They are self-conscious about their smile. Invisalign aligners are a form of orthodontic treatment that can help teens become more confident in their appearance. If your teen is self-conscious about their smile, Invisalign may be right for them.
- They can handle responsibility. Having your teen wear Invisalign braces is a big responsibility, and it’s important to make sure they know what they need to do for it to work. You’ll want to make sure your teen knows how long they need to wear their aligners and that they need to see the orthodontist regularly. Keeping up good oral hygiene habits like brushing and flossing will help the Invisalign process go more smoothly.
- Your teen may be ready for Invisalign if they have crooked teeth, gaps in their smile, or if they have a lot of crowding. Teens can fix their smiles with Invisalign treatment, which doesn’t use metal brackets and wires or anything else that could get in the way of living life with a confident smile.
If any of the above is true for your teen, they may be a good candidate for Invisalign, but only Dr. Liatti can tell for sure. Contact our orthodontic office in Encinitas, CA, today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
