Discussing Invisalign Treatment With Your Teen

If your teen is almost at the point where you need to begin orthodontic treatment, they may have questions and concerns. Teenagers can be particularly uncomfortable with how braces may affect their appearance, and worried about having to wear them for an extended period of time. You may be interested in bringing them in for a consultation to discuss undergoing treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign treatment allows your teen to have their spacing and alignment issues corrected with subtle, hard to notice clear braces. Because they can be removed, clear braces are also advantageous because it can be easier to keep their teeth properly cleaned. If you have questions about how this process will work, or if your teen qualifies for this treatment, a consultation can help you make a more informed decision.

Using Advanced Technology To Plan Your Teen’s Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment offers a modern approach to orthodontic work. During the planning stages, your dentist can actually use iTero digital scans to plan the treatment, and give you a chance to see how your teen’s smile will look after treatment is concluded!

Fielding Questions About Invisalign

Before starting Invisalign treatment for your teen, you may have several questions. Your first concern may be with whether they qualify for this method of treatment. While some severe cases of misalignment can require metal braces, many patients will be approved for this type of adjustment. The use of Invisalign over metal braces will eliminate any need for manual appliance adjustments, and reduce the number of times you need to come in for appointments, a particularly valuable benefit if your teen has several after-school activities to take part in. An initial appearance can help you better understand this treatment, while also giving your teen an insight into what they should aniticipate from their experience.
