How would you like to be able to smile flawlessly without wearing clunky braces? Invisalign invisible braces are the perfect solution to correct your smile during your teenage years. Invisalign aligners allow teens to enjoy the correcting effects of traditional wire-bracket braces while keeping their teeth clean and free from any uncomfortable appliances.
Why Do I Need Braces?
Many teens have some sort of tooth misalignment that needs to be corrected. Some of the more common problems that need adjustment are:
- Overbites | Upper teeth that close in front of lower teeth.
- Underbites | Upper teeth that close behind lower teeth.
- Crossbites | Upper and lower jaws that don’t align.
- Gap Teeth | Space between teeth.
- Open Bite | Top and bottom teeth that do not meet when closed.
- Crowded Teeth | Teeth are bunched up along the jaw.
- Crooked Teeth | Teeth that have grown in the wrong position.
Invisalign invisible braces were created to solve all these problems while hardly being noticeable. With Invisalign treatment, you can have an easier time chewing, and avoid any of the above issues developing further.
What Do They Look Like?
Invisalign invisible braces will barely be noticeable. This is why Invisalign clear braces make a great choice for teens looking for straightening their teeth without drawing attention to themselves. Invisalign aligners are made from a strong, clear plastic that is fitted to your mouth. The aligners can be worn so that they are practically invisible to anyone around you.
What Will They Feel Like?
Invisalign aligners are a form of braces. This being the case, you will feel pressure on your teeth as you wear them. Braces will gently and gradually change the position of your teeth. It might take a few days for you to adjust to the feeling of wearing them, but most people find the slight discomfort of wearing their aligners preferable to the cumbersome wires of traditional braces.
Invisalign braces are custom-fit to your mouth. Advanced 3D impressions and x-ray scans of your mouth allow us to design alignment trays that fit snugly on your teeth and against your gum line. Traditional braces are much less comfortable and can irritate your cheeks, gums, and tongue.
Great On The Go
Teens who are involved in performing or sports will love Invisalign braces. Invisalign braces fit snugly around your teeth so that they won’t slip while you run. Invisalign braces are not meant to replace mouthguards but they can protect your teeth from small impacts and can be preferable to wearing nothing.
The aligners’ smooth plastic exterior makes it possible to play musical instruments with the same level of comfort as without them. Plastic aligners are less noticeable than bracket and wire braces, and will not cause the same irritation as playing instruments with traditional braces will.
With all the activities you’ve got going on, there will be some occasions where it is preferable to remove your braces. With Invisalign aligners, this is totally possible! If you need to remove them, you can! Just remember to put them back on again when you’re done and wear them as often as possible.
Caring for Your Invisalign Braces
Invisalign braces can be much more easily maintained than regular braces. For instance, they can be removed to clean or eat whenever you like. You can care for them by either rinsing them with water or giving them a light cleaning with toothpaste and a toothbrush.
Because Invisalign aligners can be easily removed, you don’t have to worry about a bracket falling off while you eat, or about damage to your braces during any other activity. This helps you to rest assured knowing that you won’t need to make additional emergency visits.
How Long Will Treatment Take?
The full process of having your teeth straightened can take anywhere from six months to two years. The unique circumstances of each patient make it impossible to determine exactly how long treatment will be required.
The duration of your treatment also depends greatly on your own attentiveness to wearing your aligners. For best results, make sure to wear your aligners as proscribed by our dentist.
There are a few things we can do to speed up the Invisalign treatment process. If you are interested in a faster treatment time, start a conversation with your parents about accelerated orthodontics.
