Treating Your Teen’s Orthodontic Troubles With Invisalign

Your teenager has many meaningful moments to look forward to as they grow up, and those moments will come with plenty of photo opportunities. Because people often have orthodontic work done during their teen years, they often wind up with plenty of pictures while sporting conspicuous metal braces. Obviously, you want your child to feel great about their smile, and you want them to look their best during this period. If it is time for your teen to consider orthodontic work, you can talk to your Rochester, MN dentist’s office about Invisalign treatment. We can use Invisalign aligners to straighten your teen’s smile discreetly. That means when they pose for yearbook photos, and pictures before a big dance, they can flash a beautiful smile uninterrupted by metal braces!

Invisalign Offers Exciting Advantages Over Traditional Braces

One of the “clearest” advantages Invisalign holds over traditional braces is that Invisalign aligners are difficult to see. Made with a clear material, these appliances can be set on a person’s teeth without attracting attention. Invisalign also offers a second big benefit – while metal braces stay in place for the duration of an adjustment, Invisalign appliances can be removed. That can make it easier for your teen to clean their teeth, and enjoy meals.

Creating Your Teen’s Custom Aligners

Our practice relies on modern technology to treat dental issues. The benefits to modern technology start with the planning of Invisalign treatment. Instead of depending on physical molds to plan a patient’s aligners, we use an iTero digital scanner to record digital measurements. This can even allow us to provide a “preview” of how your teen will look after they complete their adjustment.

Looking Forward To Life With Straightened Teeth

Invisalign aligners can gradually improve a person’s smile – with each new appliance, a patient is closer to their ultimate improvements. Thanks to Propel technology, patients can actually shorten how much time they spend completing their correction. After your teen completes their Invisalign treatment, they can flash a wonderful smile that is no longer affected by alignment flaws. Straightened teeth can also help them prevent cavities, as they no longer have to deal with overlaps that act as hard-to-reach spaces for bacteria to gather.
