Every teen wants a great smile. However, the idea of wearing wire braces can make many teens cringe at the thought of getting their teeth straightened.
Fortunately, there’s an option your teen can feel confident about: Invisalign®. The Invisalign system features aligners that are removable and nearly invisible. With this system, your teen is given a number of aligner sets, and every two weeks or so, they switch out one set for the next set in the series. And, when they take out their last set, they have the smile of their dreams.
In this blog, Samuel Sigmon, DDS, of Full Circle Dental Care in Del City, Oklahoma, gives five reasons why an Invisalign treatment could be the perfect treatment for your teenager.
Invisalign clear aligners feature patented SmartTracK® material, an elastic material that provides superior comfort over other clear aligner systems. The SmartTrack material provides gentle but consistent force to gradually move teeth into the correct positions.
Of course every patient is different, but the Invisalign system can straighten teeth in half the time of traditional wire braces. Invisalign is durable and provides a constant force on all teeth simultaneously, moving them into the correct positions faster than conventional braces.
Dr. Sigmon uses the patented iTero Element® scanner to create a 3-D model of your teen’s teeth. This revolutionary technology, only available with Invisalign, allows Dr. Sigmon to map out your teen’s entire treatment plan. This makes for fast, effective results. Additionally, Dr. Sigmon can show your teen what their teeth will look like at the end of the process.
Every mouth is different, which is why we use a customized approach to straightening teeth. Some patients have more complicated orthodontic problems that may need more specialized applications. Invisalign technology includes SmartForce® attachments that can accomplish complex dental movements.
One of the biggest reasons teens love Invisalign is because it’s discreet and largely undetectable. Teens can feel confident with their Invisalign treatment without feeling like they’re sticking out in a crowd. This can be a huge factor with image-conscious teens who prefer a less noticeable treatment.
