At our orthodontic practice, offering clear aligners is an important treatment option for both adults and teenagers. When utilized properly by a trained orthodontic specialist, Invisalign, the leading clear aligner brand, can provide both teens and adults with the beautiful straight teeth they’ve always wanted — without braces.
A consultation with a trained orthodontist is the only way to know for sure whether it’s the appropriate treatment option, but understanding the benefits of Invisalign can help you make a decision as to whether it could be the right fit for your teen or yourself:
- They’re Completely Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No closed-lipped selfies here! If you or your teen are self-conscious about appearing in photos, Invisalign could be the right choice.
- They’re a Confidence Booster: A recent study found that teens wearing Invisalign are twice as likely to experience a boost in self-esteem while in treatment than teens treated with metal braces. Based on what we’ve seen with our patients, the same holds true for adults!
- They’re Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing our patients to eat and drink whatever they’d like while in treatment and play certain sports more easily.
- No Goopy Impressions: We utilize the iTero digital scanner, which means no more mouthfuls of the old goopy impressions! So your treatment will be smooth and comfortable from start to finish.
And here’s a benefit for adults (whether the patient or parent!): With Invisalign there won’t be any brackets to become loose or broken, so there are potentially fewer emergency visits to the orthodontist, and fewer interruptions to your busy schedule!
