What Every Parent Should Know About Invisalign
Not every teen feels comfortable about wearing braces to straighten their teeth. This can be a trying time for parents who understand the importance of straightening your child's teeth, but still need to be sensitive to your their anxiety about the treatment. Invisalign offers a more convenient and aesthetically-pleasing alternative to traditional braces. It offers your child the confidence of a great smile even during the course of treatment.
It is designed to fit perfectly to your child's lifestyle and activities, allowing her/him to enjoy and have fun without the restrictions and self-consciousness caused by metal wires and brackets.
Invisalign uses a series of clear and removable aligners, custom-made for your child's teeth. The aligners shift your child's teeth gradually into its new position until the correct alignment for the right bite is achieved.
We understand that teens tend to remain active and can engage in various sports and physical activities. As the clear aligners are removable, your teen can play sports without worrying about breaking or harming the aligners. Even younger kids undergoing the Invisalign treatment in Dubai, can engage in regular activities without the aligners getting in the way.
In addition, there are no food restrictions with Invisalign. Your child can continue to enjoy his or her favorite food – even nuts, hard candy, popcorn, hard fruits, and the like. It also doesn't get in the way of good oral hygiene practices. Your child should experience no disruption to his or her regular brushing and flossing routine at home.
You should ensure that your child wears the aligners for up to 22 hours a day. This is highly recommended to keep the treatment on the right track and achieve optimal results.
Going through with the Invisalign treatment can be life-changing for your child. Straighter and healthier teeth can boost self-esteem and confidence, allowing them to be more prepared and comfortable at school, with friends and in various social gatherings.
