Tweens, braces and an alternative

I can hear it already…the cost, the pain, the braces….. I don’t even know yet if my kids will need them but all my hubby can think about is the expense! Now I know we have some options like Invisalign

I remember seeing ads about Invisalign and wondered what is was. Now there is an Invisalign that is specifically developled for teens. How the heck does that thing work?

I remember wearing my braces as a child wishing I could hide or have something less conspicuous.

Teens now have a more modern choice for straightening their teeth. No more wires and brackets required – Invisalign Teen is a series of removable and virtually invisible aligners that gradually move teeth over time and is an alternative to metal braces. It was developed with leading orthodontists who understand the unique treatment and compliance needs of teens as well as their active lifestyles. Invisalign Teen treatment is ideal for busy parents because there are never any emergency appointments caused by broken wires or brackets. No more uncomfortable tightening – I remember those!

Here are just some of the benefits:

• It fits teens’ busy lives—the aligners are comfortable and durable, so it’s easy for teens to continue their favorite activities such as playing sports and musical instruments that can be challenging or uncomfortable with traditional metal braces.

• It’s clear—no metal braces so treatment is inconspicuous, making it easier for teens to “fit in” rather than call attention to their treatment.

• It’s removable—teens take the aligners out to brush and floss so they can maintain normal, healthy hygiene during treatment and they can eat what they want – this is huge coming from a corn on the cob and caramel eater!

• It’s more comfortable than traditional braces—Invisalign Teen aligners are made of lightweight plastic that is custom-fitted to each patient’s teeth. Unlike braces, there are no wires or uncomfortable metal brackets poking or tearing their mouths or gums

AND yes, Invisalign can effectively treat many of the same conditions that used to only require metal braces. For more information check out their web site.
