Invisalign® Catered To Teens

Our Calgary, AB teens know that Invisalign can provide a much better treatment option for their needs than that offered by traditional braces.

Lately, it seems like we’ve begun to notice a lot of buzz about Invisalign® here at Northpointe Family Dentistry. Our patients love the fact that they can now pursue teeth straightening treatment that is both comfortable and virtually invisible once in place. Unsurprisingly, our most vocal group of happy patients has been our many teens. Our teen patients love the idea of being able to straighten their teeth without any of their friends even noticing. Today, Dr. Georgie Rosenbaum is blogging from her Calgary, AB office to talk about the many ways that Invisalign can benefit our teen patients.

A Treatment Without Compromises

The main reason our teen patients prefer Invisalign over traditional braces is the fact that Invisalign’s aligners are made from a soft, smooth plastic instead of metal wires and brackets. Invisalign is made from a plastic that is carefully molded based on scans of your child’s mouth, allowing it to sit comfortably against their teeth and gums. The edges are also rounded, ensuring that your child will not be able to cut themselves on their treatment, which is a common complaint when it comes to traditional braces.

Our teen patients also love the fact that the plastic used by Invisalign is clear. This means that once your teen’s aligners are in place, no one will even be able to see them. This comes in handy for a lot of important high school moments. For example, your child will be able to smile their brightest for their yearbook photos or during prom, secure in the fact that their straightening treatment will not be seen.

One last aspect of Invisalign that our teen patients love is the fact that the aligners are not cemented to their teeth. This allows your teen to remove their aligners whenever it might be necessary. In fact, your child will be required to remove their aligners before eating any meals. This has the added benefit of meaning your teen can eat all of the same foods they could before they started their teeth straightening procedure. Your child will simply remove their aligners for the duration of their meal and then reinsert them when done. Traditional braces can be damaged playing contact sports, or interfere with playing some musical instruments. This is not so with Invisalign, and your teen 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 be a stressful time for our teen patients. However, we believe that none of this stress should have to come from your child’s teeth straightening treatment. With Invisalign, there is no reason for your teen to ever have to worry about whether their treatment is showing or if it might cut them on accident. And, with less stress on your child, there is also less stress on you.
