Dental Pearls offers Invisalign Teen, a treatment option for teenagers which does not require the use of traditional metal braces.
During one’s teenage years is the best time for one to have orthodontic work performed, as their adult teeth are more malleable and can be moved easier at this stage of their life. This makes fixing orthodontic issues easier than when they are adults.
One way of doing this is through Invisalign’s range of clear aligners designed for teenagers, Invisalign Teen.
About Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen is a form of Invisalign treatment that is designed specifically for teenagers to create the best results possible. Invisalign Teen treatment involves the use of a series of clear aligners, which gradually straighten your teeth. The patient must wear the aligners for 22 hours a day, only being taken out to eat and to clean your teeth.
At your initial consultation, the team at Dental Pearls will provide you with all the information you need regarding your course of treatment, including how long you should expect to be wearing Invisalign aligners for and the cost of the treatment.
Candidacy for Invisalign Teen
Not all teens are candidates for Invisalign Teen. The Invisalign Teen procedure is generally only used for minor alignment cases only, so if your teen has a major problem such as a severe overbite or crossbite they will most likely need traditional metal braces instead. Therefore, to receive the treatment you must have an assessment performed by a dentist, which we can do for you here at Dental Pearls.
The benefits of Invisalign for teenagers
There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign Teen treatments.
The treatment is far less visible than traditional metal braces are, as there are no bulky metal brackets attached to your teeth during the treatment.
Additionally, you will still be able to eat and drink as you usually would, whereas with traditional braces you would be forced to avoid specific foods due to the treatment.
How to clean your teeth while using Invisalign Teen
It is much easier to keep your teeth clean with Invisalign Teen’s plastic aligners, making your oral hygiene routine much easier to follow. This is because you do not need to worry about cleaning around the brackets and wires one would have on traditional braces.
To keep your teeth clean, you simply just need to follow the same routine as if you were not undergoing orthodontic treatment: Brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day and once a day respectively. If you do this, you will be able to maintain good oral health.
