WHAT I WISH MY PARENTS KNEW ABOUT INVISALIGN®
Traditional braces for teenagers may lead some adolescents to be self-conscious about their smile. At Liberty we are passionate about not only oral health, but we also want to play a role in helping young people develop into confident men and women.
With that in mind, we offer both traditional braces and a special option known as Invisalign® Teen. Though wire braces are sometimes necessary for more serious alignment issues, Invisalign® Teen provides many teenagers with a great orthodontic option.
Here are a few things many teens would like to say to their parents in consideration of Invisalign® Teen:
“My appearance is important to me… although I may never say it, I really do care about how I look. If possible, I would love to have a beautiful smile without having my mouth full of wires.”
With Invisalign® Teen, adolescents can achieve beautifully straight teeth without metal brackets and wires.
“I really like the idea of invisible braces that no one really notices… Some of my friends like choosing cool colors for their braces, but I think most of them would rather have invisible braces – me included.”
Invisalign® Teen uses a series of clear, seemingly invisible, aligners to help teeth gradually shift into place.
“I like that I can remove them to eat… and brush… My friends with braces don’t get to eat certain things. I like that I can just take the aligners out so I can eat whatever I want. And, I can remove them to brush and floss my teeth ☺”
Invisalign® Teen uses removable aligners allowing teens to eat anything and brush and floss without braces getting in the way.
“I like that they are supposed to be more comfortable… I know some of my friends have had a few issues with their braces causing bleeding in their mouth. It seems like that wouldn’t happen with the clear aligners.”
Each Invisalign® Teen aligner is custom designed to fit precisely over the teeth, replacing the need for wires and brackets that may cause mouth discomfort.
At Liberty, we love that Invisalign® Teen allows a teenager to achieve a beautifully straight smile without the challenge of traditional braces. Contact us today to see if Invisalign® Teen could be the right solution for your teenager.
