Why Should I Choose Invisalign for my Teen?
- Posted on: Dec 20 2012
With the innovative Invisalign system, your teen does not necessarily have to wear metal braces. With comparable treatment length, cost and results, why not let your teen enjoy the virtually invisible way to straighten teeth?
Invisalign may not be right for every teen. Some parents may be concerned that their teens will be tempted to take the removable aligners out more often than necessary. Another common concern is that Invisalign does not work as effectively in correcting the orthodontic needs of a teen’s developing dentition. Several features of Invisalign Teen address those concerns:
- Blue dot wear indicator. This feature tells parents and dentists if the teen is not wearing the aligner often enough.
- Eruption accommodation. Eruption tabs and other design features plan for teeth that will erupt or are partially erupted.
- Power ridges. This feature provides the extra force necessary to perform complex movements that are characteristic of teen treatment, including tooth root movement.
These features personalize treatment to a teen’s specific treatment needs while retaining the full benefits of Invisalign. Teens still get to take the clear, plastic aligners out to eat, so dietary restrictions are not necessary with Invisalign. The removable nature of Invisalign also makes it easy to maintain oral hygiene. Your teen can brush and floss normally, while metal braces can make these tasks difficult.
The only way to find out if Invisalign is right for your teen is to schedule a consultation with our Premier Invisalign Provider. At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, we will determine if Invisalign will address your teen’s needs or whether another treatment will be more effective.
