As your child grows up, you can make sure their oral health needs are being addressed by bringing them to pediatric dental appointments. In addition to offering routine dental services, pediatric appointments provide the opportunity for your dentist to monitor the development of your child’s oral structures. Because of this, you can be well aware that they will need to begin orthodontic treatment. What you might not realize is that your teen may be eligible for orthodontic treatment with Invisalign aligners. At our Rochester, MN dental office, we can determine if your teen is a good candidate, and talk to you about what they should expect from this approach to treatment! Patients of all ages can appreciate that Invisalign allows them to do something about crooked or overlapping teeth without relying on metal braces.
Why Should You Consider Invisalign Treatment For Your Teen?
When your teen has Invisalign aligners instead of braces, they can feel more confident during a time that can be stressful and awkward. These appliances can also ensure that you see more of their lovely smile in yearbook photos, and any other pictures you take. Your teen can be glad to have Invisalign appliances instead of braces because they can be more comfortable, and they are easy to remove when they might be in the way.
Making Plans To Correct Poor Dental Alignment
We use iTero digital scanning technology to plan patients’ Invisalign treatments. This approach creates remarkably accurate models of a person’s bite without requiring them to sink their teeth into an awkward plaster mold. Once this information is gathered, we can make sure that your teen has Invisalign appliances that are custom-made for their needs. Rather than having a permanent appliance to adjust, they will simply move from one appliance to the next to progress their smile correction. We are happy to help you understand what to expect during their treatment – your initial evaluation is a great time to bring up any questions you might have about orthodontic work with Invisalign aligners.
Invisalign Appliances Are Also Effective For Adults!
If you have always felt self-conscious about a visible alignment flaw, or if you have noticed that your teeth have shifted over time after earlier orthodontic work, we can certainly speak with you about Invisalign treatment! Adult patients can be glad to have a convenient solution to poorly aligned teeth, and they can value the way Invisalign does not compromise their professional appearance in work settings.
