6 Reasons Invisalign is the Future of Teen Orthodontics
Orthodontic correction can be a big step for your teen, and sometimes a distress. Here are reasons why Invisalign Teen clear aligners is a worthy investment – your teen might even thank you for choosing it!
1. Clearly The Right Fit.
The Invisalign Teen clear aligners are custom-made to straighten teeth. Finding the right fit to tackle the core of misaligned teeth issue starts with an advanced combination of digital imaging, shape engineering, and 3D printing. In short, we transform less than an ounce of high tech polymer into a modern engineering marvel – and your teen’s most confident smile yet.
2. All Gain. Less Pain. Full Discreet.
Invisalign Teen’s proprietary SmartTrack® material moves teeth with the right amount of pressure at the right time. It’s made with highly elastic material to ensure that the aligners maintain a snug yet comfortable fit throughout treatment.
Your teen need not worry about broken brackets and wires because unlike braces, Invisalign gently nudges teeth into the perfect smile, the smart way, without affecting the way your teen speaks.
The best part? Invisalign is nearly invisible, so no awkward stares for your teen. In contrast to the bulky unattractive metal braces that are not only noticeable; your teen can end up getting food caught in them without being aware of it, which can also be embarrassing.
3. No brackets, no wires, no time wasted.
Generally, Invisalign treatment takes less dental appointments as compared to braces. Invisalign treatment only requires dentist visits every 6-10 weeks, with no emergency trips in between to fix broken brackets or wires. Your teen can spend less time in the doctor’s chair, and more time moving forward in life!
4. You’re in Control.
Invisalign accredited specialists aside, your teen’s compliance to treatment requirement is critical in achieving the desired outcomes.
With Dental Monitoring, a virtual monitoring solution in orthodontic care, dentists can now remotely control patient’s treatment and monitor the the teeth’s changing conditions as they occur. You can always be in the know about your teen’s Invisalign treatment progress, simply by accessing the app on your smartphone!
Additionally, fewer appointments will be required. The virtual dental monitoring solution reduces dental visits from once every 8 weeks to once every 4 months! Saves you time from chauffeuring your teen to and fro clinic visitations – great news, isn’t it?
5. Unhindered, Unrestrained.
With Invisalign, your teen can eat whatever he/she wants.
Because the aligners are removable, Invisalign patients can go ahead and eat all the things they love, like pizza and popcorn, without worrying about breaking a bracket or losing a rubber band.
On top of that, be it school presentations, speech and drama, theatre, debate, choir sessions or contact sports, Invisalign allows your teen to participate freely without being hindered by traditional metal brackets and wires.
6. Low Maintenance.
Caring for the Invisalign is easy. Brush and rinse with lukewarm water – that’s all your teen will need to do to keep the aligners clean! Furthermore, your teen will be able to maintain thorough dental hygiene more effectively than with metal braces, thus ensuring a healthy future.
