Of all the milestones that mark your teenager’s growth, the start of orthodontic work can be less than thrilling for them. With that said, it can be an important step. In addition to giving them a more attractive smile and boosting their confidence, straightened teeth can offer important oral health benefits. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we can provide your teen with orthodontic treatment via Invisalign aligners. Our younger patients can be glad to have appliances that do not affect the way they look. Parents can be glad to know that Invisalign can require fewer appointments during an adjustment.
Choosing Invisalign Instead Of Traditional Braces
Invisalign aligners provide you a patient with a series of clear braces that are worn for set periods of time. After your teen finishes with one, they simply move onto the next appliance until they have finished their adjustment. This process can be less intrusive than metal braces, as there are no manual adjustments to worry about. You can also be glad to see your child’s natural smile in yearbook photographs, prom pictures, and other important pictures!
At our practice, we can provide a surprisingly comfortable experience with Invisalign from the first appointment. Rather than use traditional physical molds for dental measurements, we use an iTero digital scanner to take digital images. We can also talk to you about shortening your teen’s treatment time with Propel Orthodontics.
Your Teen Can Have An Easier Time Adjusting To Life With Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign appliances are hard to see and easy to remove, which can make them ideal for patients. Teens can be particularly glad to know they are not spending these particularly image-conscious years with a conspicuous appliance. They can also have an easier time properly cleaning their teeth because their aligners are removable.
Orthodontic Work Can Offer More Than Just A Better Smile
By starting orthodontic work for your teen, you can help them by fixing frustrating gaps and overlaps that affect their appearance. These problems can make them self-conscious, and uncomfortable with themselves at an already uncomfortable age. With that said, orthodontic work is able to do more than just fix frustrating cosmetic flaws. This work to straighten teeth can improve your teen’s bite function, and it can help them better prevent cavities because it makes their smile easier to clean.
