Invisalign has been growing in popularity as a better alternative to braces. However, not everyone is familiar with how the whole process works. Clear aligners do not resemble braces made of brackets and wires, making them a mystery to even patients familiar with different orthodontic treatments.
Here at Nelson R. Diers Orthodontics, we manage our patient's treatment from start to finish using state-of-the-art equipment that guarantees great results and fast recovery. From consultation to aftercare, our skillful dentists will handle you with care ensuring your lost smile is restored.
Invisalign uses clear aligners to help move your teeth instead of track braces. They come with flexible plastic materials which were specifically developed for the treatment of Invisalign. Depending on the needs of your child or teen, you may have to get either a partial or a full pair of clear aligners. Some teeth will need an attachment to be put on them.
Invisalign comprises clear plastic aligners that fit well on the teeth. Clear aligners work by straightening the teeth gently and shifting them to the right positions. Like retainers, clear aligners are also removable, making teeth brushing, flossing, and eating easy. You will have to wear the aligners only for the recommended timeline before you switch to the next set. Our dentists will monitor your progress, ensuring the teeth move in the right position.
Invisalign for teens is the latest clear aligners generation. They are very comfortable to put on and provide orthodontic patients with more options. It is one of the most innovative orthodontic treatment methods known for using invisible aligners. The teeth will slowly straighten with the help of these simple and clear orthodontic appliances. Invisalign is a great option for teenagers interested in straightening their teeth without using braces.
Invisalign for kids is an orthodontic treatment method meant for kids between the ages of six and 12. This device helps in fixing issues with arch expansion and development. It helps improve tooth protrusions, spacing, and crowding that impact the appearance of the kid's smile. Invisalign is safe for kids, provided they have attained the minimum age for wearing braces. The kids' teeth should also have matured enough and can comfortably withstand the pressure Invisalign brings. The treatment period will depend on the orthodontic problem type the kid has.
The best thing about Invisalign for kids is that you can always remove them whenever necessary. Invisalign should be worn for at least 22 hours daily. Only remove Invisalign during meals, brushing, or flossing. The treatment period will be longer when Invisalign is not worn within the required period.
