Adolescent and teen years hold great experiences and memories for most kids. However, going to school and being a teen can be stressful for kids and their confidence. And add to it old, bulky metal braces that are uncomfortable and obtrusive, well, that can be cause for embarrassment for some.
Today, millions of kids get some form of braces each year. Fortunately, there is a more discreet and convenient way to straighten teeth today with Invisalign.
Keep reading to learn if Invisalign is right for your child.
Invisalign is today’s advanced method of straightening teeth. The beauty of it is it is clear – the aligners snap over teeth and can be removed while eating, so no need to worry about food getting stuck like with metal braces.
It is also convenient – as you simply come to the dentist when it’s time for new aligners as teeth shift. And it is just as effective as braces.
For kids – ease is key! Cleaning the aligners is simple and requires just a soft toothbrush and water. Further, it is safer than metal braces when playing sports and being active and they are less likely to cause injury.
However, it is key your child understand that the aligners must be work the vast majority of the day and night and should only be removed while eating. Further, they should take care to not lose the aligners or put them anywhere they could be damaged.
Kids as young as 10 may be a candidate for Invisalign, so long as they have most of their permanent teeth. If you’d like to explore Invisalign for your child, we welcome a consultation!
