Invisalign® – The Right Choice For Teens
Relatively maintenance-free,Invisalign® Teen aligners are better orthodontic teeth aligning option for your teen—already burdened with studies, school activities, friends, and sports—compared to the meticulous caring and restrictions associated with traditional metal braces.
At Pierce Aesthetics of Newport Beach, CA , Dr. Natalie Dang will use all her experience as a leading and board-certified orthodontist and expert Invisalign® provider to help your teen to live and smile freely with Invisalign® Teen aligners. The aligners are almost invisible to other people but are as effective in straightening teeth and fixing common dental problems as traditional braces. At Pierce Aesthetics dental clinic, we use all our experience to find the right-fitting Invisalign® aligner for your teen.
Invisalign®FixesMultiple Dental Issues
- Crowded teeth: Not enough space in the jaw for teeth to fit normally causing twisting, overlapping, bunching, protrusion or recession.
- Overbite: Upper front teeth overlap with the row of lower front teeth. A little overbite is normal, but your orthodontist will decide when it needs correction.
- Underbite:Lower front teeth overlap with the upper ones.
- Crossbite:Upper teeth sit inside your lower teeth rather than on the outside when you close your mouth.
- Gap Teeth: Extra spaces between your teeth.
- Open Bite:Lower and upper teeth don’t touch when you close your mouth.
Invisalign® Teen For The On-The-Move Generation
Comfortable to Wear
Invisalign® Teen aligners are made using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology to fit the distinct dental contours and alignment needs of each patient. There’s no risk of pain and irritation to the cheeks and gums as Invisalign® uses soft plastic trays to prevent discomfort and injury risks associated with traditional metal braces
Fewer Emergency Visits
For teens, wearing Invisalign® clear alignersresults in fewer or almost no emergency visits to the orthodontist for broken brackets and wires or associated injuries. While with metal braces your teen may have to visit the dentist every six weeks for checkups, with Invisalign® treatment your child is only required to visit your orthodontist every 10 weeks.
No Restrictions on Living An Active Life
Do you know that playing contact sports with metal braces on can be risky?In spite of wearing an orthodontic mouth guard,broken metal brackets and wires can cause severe injury to the cheek, gums or teeth during contact sports; discomfort and pain while singing in choirs and become an impediment in playing mouth-based musical instruments.
With Invisalign® Teen you can stay active in all the sports and activities you love without restrictions as they are made of safe and comfortable-to-wear plastic.
Goodbye To Food Restrictions
With traditional metal braces, you have to constantly worry about food fragments getting caught between wires and this may damage the braces, leadto tooth decay, and cause discomfort or unnecessary embarrassment. Invisalign® Teen has detachable trays that can easily be removed so that you can eat your favorite foodsand maintain oral hygiene by cleaning the aligners regularly. So, popcorns, candies or chocolates are no problem!
Boosts Self-Confidence and “Repels” Bullies
It seems unfair, but somehow metal braces tend to attract bullies at school. “Metal mouth” or “brace face” are some of the tags that bullies use to target teens wearing braces. However, teens that wear Invisalign® can carry a confident smile even while wearing braces. Self-esteem is important for teens as these are their formative years, and Invisalign® clear aligners help boost their confidence. Moreover, bullies stay away from self-confident people.
Invisalign® scores well on many fronts when it comes to the right choice of braces for teens. Teens have a lot on their plate today, and they are a restless generation. They would rather not spend too much time visiting the dentist office, avoid certain foods or follow a meticulous plan to maintain their orthodontic appliances. Teens love Invisalign® aligners because they are unobtrusive (almost invisible), safe, comfortable to wear and easy to maintain.
