Invisalign | Made to Move

Maybe you’re worried about the ways in which your teenagers currently take care of their teeth. The hope is that Invisalign will encourage them to act in more favorable ways toward their chompers, and the nature of this system does help them to accomplish that goal. With traditional braces, brushing and flossing is difficult, and people may end the process with teeth that are less white than they had hoped. On the other hand, the Invisalign retainer comes out of the mouth, so your kids can still brush and floss their teeth appropriately.

Convincing Kids

When teenagers learn that they need to get braces, they are often not happy. Many of them worry about their image and what their friends will say. With Invisalign Teen, no one needs to know your even wearing them. You can also continue to eat and drink all your favorite foods and brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth as there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions. Invisalign Teen are essentially clear retainers which helps to prevent some of the problems that traditional braces cause.

Teenagers often worry that their social and personal lives are going to come to a halt when braces are placed upon their teeth. However, explain to them that Invisalign Teen really doesn’t change all that much. They can still participate in the same activities and smile with confidence at the homecoming prom, play sports and eat the same foods like popcorn.

Invisalign is a retainer that can be taken out of the mouth. Instead of worrying that they are going to get peanut butter or spaghetti intertwined in their braces, they can just remove the retainer and eat their favorite foods. Teenagers are already going through enough change, and Invisalign helps to keep some sense of the status quo.

Promoting Oral Hygiene

You’re happy to see that benefits exist for your teenagers with Invisalign, but you are concerned with the costs for you. The exact costs of the procedure can be determined only by a visit with Dr. Childers since plans vary according to need and duration. However, you should not automatically assume that Invisalign Teen is so much more expensive than other types of braces. When you take a look at the costs of the different options, you will likely see that they are comparable.

It’s important that you and your teenager learn about the process together so that any questions you have can receive the proper answers.
