Teeth Straightening For Teens Using Invisalign®

Teeth Straightening For Teens Using Invisalign®

Our Sacramento, CA area patients love straightening their crooked teeth and correcting bite issues with Invisalign.

Here at Szymanowski Orthodontics, we’ve noticed a lot of happy, straightened smiles greeting us this holiday season. When asked, our patients can’t help but rave about their Invisalign® treatment. The ability to straighten crooked teeth and correct bite issues comfortably and invisibly has taken the dental world by storm. For the longest time, our teen patients have had to watch on as our adult patients enjoyed all the benefits of treatment with Invisalign. Today, Dr. Szymanowski is blogging from Sacramento, CA to say that Invisalign has heard our teen patients cries. He is happy to introduce the Invisalign teen program, and reveal just some of the benefits that come with it.

A Teeth Straightening Treatment Without Compromises

What our teen patients love the most about Invisalign is the fact that it ditches the uncomfortable metal wires and brackets of traditional braces and uses a smooth plastic to create its aligners. This plastic is molded to fit your child’s jaw structure, allowing the aligners to sit comfortably against their teeth and gums. Traditional braces have a reputation of cutting our teen patients’ gums and tongues. With Invisalign, the edges of the aligners are rounded, ensuring that your child’s aligners will not harm them. An added benefit of Invisalign is the fact that the plastic used by the system is clear, making the treatment virtually invisible. This means that once your teen’s aligners are in place, no one will even be able to notice their treatment. This allows our teen patients to smile their brightest during important moments like taking their yearbook photos or during prom.

Our teen patients also love the fact that their Invisalign aligners are not cemented to their teeth like traditional braces are. This gives them the ability to remove their aligners whenever they may find it necessary to do so. In fact, your child will actually be required to remove their aligners every time they eat. This comes with the benefit of allowing your teen to eat all of the same foods they could before pursuing teeth straightening without having to worry about any foods damaging their aligners or getting caught in them. Traditional braces can also interfere with some band instruments, and can be damaged when playing contact sports. For these kinds of situations, your child will simply remove their aligners for the duration of the activity and reinsert them when done. So long as your teen is sure to wear their aligners for at least 22 hours a day, their treatment will continue as planned.

We understand that high school can put a ton of stress on our teen patients. However, we believe that your child’s teeth straightening treatment should not contribute to that stress in any way. Invisalign accomplishes this by providing a treatment that is not only invisible, but also gives your teen the freedom to remove their treatment whenever necessary.
