Teenagers usually go through an awkward phase during puberty. In today’s world where we are surrounded by media focused on the need for aesthetics and cosmetics ads, teenagers have become more conscious about the way they look. Since they are encountering changes in their bodies and in their environment, they develop the need to take care of themselves better, to look better and to fit in.
Having the perfect smile is one of the essentials for teens. Gone are the days when they carelessly eat sweets that would harm their teeth. As a teenager, they know better. Teens would start to maintain a healthier oral hygiene, and for the ones who have crooked or misaligned teeth, they would start considering undergoing orthodontic treatments to get a beautiful smile.
For teenagers, it is also important to fit in, that’s why they are very up to date with the current trends. Getting metal braces is considered going against the norm, plus, not everyone looks good in braces.
Invisalign treatment is an alternative for teens to have their teeth aligned and skip the awkward phase and the awful look. If you’re a teen who’s interested in getting the Invisalign treatment, here’s how it works:
When you get your parent’s consent, it’s time to go with your parent to Invisalign Center. The first thing that will be done is taking a digital scan (no more uncomfortable gunky impressions) of your teeth, photos and a digital X-Ray. During your first consultation, a specialist at the Invisalign Center will review your case and suggest to you what is the best treatment appropriate for you. Once you start, they will create a treatment plan which you will be to see in 3D and from that a set of clear aligners will be made in the lab.
The Aligners are made of a specialty, medical grade material. It is designed to be both effective and comfortable. Each set of the aligner tray has a built-in sensor to ensure that you are wearing them enough hours per day. One of the main benefits of aligners is that they are removable unlike braces. Teens also love to enjoy the food they eat without any restrictions. Often, braces could get in the way of chewing and it is absolutely embarrassing to get food stuck on your braces. Clear aligners are the perfect choice for teenagers who want to show off their smile.
Invisalign treatment is also ideal for teenagers as they offer a simpler concept compared to getting braces. The Invisalign aligners should be worn at least 20-22 hours a day for it to be effective. Regular check-ups for your invisalign clear aligners would also be necessary. To also understand the treatment better, you can ask your dentist for a virtual model demonstration of your teeth to show you the whole process and the expected results.
When undergoing the Invisalign Treatment, you must brush your teeth and rinse your aligners regularly. Remember that good oral hygiene will achieve the best results.
