Orthodontic treatment with braces has almost become a rite of passage for today’s teens. It can boost self confidence by straightening a crooked smile and improve dental health with a more functional, stable bite. Today’s teens have enough to worry about.
From balancing school work and fun times, to trying to develop a healthy social life, they think about so much. As a parent, you try to give them everything, but it often goes unappreciated. Help your teen alleviate one of the stresses of growing up: getting braces!
The worst part, in their eyes, is the appearance of metal wires criss-crossing their teeth. That can be a dealbreaker, but it doesn’t have to be with our modern orthodontic treatment options.
Ottawa dentist Dr. Ami Barakat is an Elite Invisalign Provider in Stittsville, Ontario. We offer comprehensive Invisalign treatment options for kids and adults, including Invisalign Teen.
Invisalign clear aligners have revolutionized traditional orthodontic treatment, offering more discreet and comfortable options. Our Invisalign treatments can suit a wide range of needs and lifestyles.
Invisalign Teen enables young patients to achieve a healthier smile without compromising their confidence in their appearance and their lifestyle. This crooked teeth treatment can leave your teen ecstatically smiling in as little as 11 months.
Dr. Barakat recommends Invisalign teen to treat mild to moderate cosmetic or dental concerns, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Cross bite
- Gaps between teeth
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® braces are an orthodontic approach to straightening crooked teeth. Beyond crooked teeth, they may also help patients with an overbite, underbite, or gaps in their teeth. Invisalign® functions similarly to traditional metal braces, slowly shifting the teeth into the proper location. However, unlike metal braces, these aligners are hardly visible.
How Invisalign® Could Benefit Your Teen
When we think of Invisalign®, we often think of them as a solution only for adults. Nevertheless, cosmetic Invisalign® aligners can be just as effective for teens with the same condition. While it’s impossible to guarantee specific results, many Invisalign® users report several advantages of clear aligners. Invisalign® for teens brings about the following benefits:
- An easier time brushing and flossing
- Removable for more comfortable eating and drinking
- Increased comfort and a snug fit against the teeth
- May be as effective as traditional braces for certain conditions
- Few check-ins with the dentist
Is Invisalign® for Me?
It’s impossible to say whether Invisalign® is right for you without a consultation. While clear aligners are effective for many conditions, some patients may benefit more from traditional braces.
