Straightening Your Teen’s Smile

Malocclusion is often identifiable at an early age, but that does not mean treatment will take place right away. Many times, dentists will recommend waiting until a later date to deal with the issue. If you have a teenager who is ready to begin orthodontic treatment, you should know that our Rochester, MN dentist’s office may be able to use Invisalign instead of braces to help them. This provides several advantages that you and they can appreciate. One is that the aligners used for treatment are difficult to see, so teens do not have to feel self-conscious during care. Another is that the appliance is removable, which means it will not create interference with daily activities.

Is It Time For Your Teen To Start Orthodontic Treatment?

As they grow up, kids can need different forms of treatment. As they reach their teen years, many will be ready to have work done to address malocclusion. Taking on this problem will improve their smile, but it will also take on potential oral health issues that can occur over time. By looking into alternatives to treatment with metal braces, you can discover that Invisalign aligners are capable of helping many teenage patients.

What To Expect When You Choose Invisalign For Your Teen’s Treatment

By using our iTero digital scanner to evaluate their teeth, we can see how Invisalign can help your child fix problems with poor spacing, awkward overlaps, and other problems with alignment. The digital images we gather take away the need to make patients bite into a plaster material to make a bite mold. They also enable us to show “previews” of patients’ smiles after treatment is completed. With the digital impressions we take, we can provide a set of personalized aligners. Teens can happily go about their day knowing that their aligners are hard for others to notice. They can also be glad to have an appliance that is easy to remove, something that makes continued smile care easier.

Invisalign Can Also Help Adults Address Malocclusion

Invisalign can assist adults as well as teenagers who are self-conscious about malocclusion. For many adults, orthodontic work feels like something they should have had earlier in life. However, you can certainly start treatment later in life. We also help adults who previously had their teeth straightened, but grew concerned as they shifted toward their previous positions over time.
