Planning Invisalign Treatment For Teens

After your teen reaches the age where they can begin orthodontic treatment, you can face an important question—what approach to straightening their smile is right for them? Because it can make treatment easier as well as more discreet, Invisalign can certainly be an appealing option. Your Rochester, MN dentist can provide Invisalign treatment for many teens who qualify for this approach. By choosing it over traditional metal braces, you can provide your child with a solution to their issues with malocclusion that lets them more easily make changes to their smile. You also enjoy the benefit of a treatment option that will not obstruct their smile in important yearbook photos and other pictures that commemorate this time in their life!

Is Your Teen Ready To Begin Orthodontic Treatment?

While your dentist may point out your child’s eventual need for orthodontic treatment at a relatively early age, they may need to wait as their oral structures continue to grow and develop to actually begin care. One advantage to our practice offering care to all ages is that we can provide updates about your child’s growth and development during their pediatric dental visits, and we can help you determine when they should begin any corrective work that they require. If they qualify, we can talk to you about starting your teen on Invisalign treatment so that they can grow into adulthood with a confident, lovely smile that is free of gaps and overlaps.

What To Expect At The Start Of Invisalign Treatment

Before Invisalign treatment officially starts, we will take detailed digital measurements of a patient’s teeth and oral structures. This gives us the information needed to plan a personalized treatment and provide appliances that are just right for them. As they wear each aligner, they take a step closer to having their teeth completely straightened. During the adjustment process, patients of all ages can appreciate how easy it is to remove their Invisalign appliances, and how difficult it is for others to see them!

We Can Also Provide Invisalign Treatment For Adults

Invisalign treatment can help people who are older as well as teens. If your teeth shifted after past orthodontic treatment, or if this is your first time dealing with issues of poor smile alignment, clear aligners can make the process easier. As you learn more about how clear appliances can improve your smile and oral health, you can find that this approach is easier to fit into your daily life!
