Help your teen align their smile discreetly with Invisalign for teens. Invisalign is ideal for many teens in the Canton, MS area. If your teen is thinking about straightening their smile with Invisalign, learn more about the process and the benefits.
How Does Invisalign for Teens Work?
Invisalign straightens your teen’s smile through a series of clear aligners. These aligners progressively straighten their smile by changing out aligner sets every one to two weeks. When you change out the aligners every one to two weeks, your teen gets closer to their dream smile.
Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
There are numerous benefits of Invisalign. Compared to traditional braces, most patients say they are more comfortable, easier to clean their teeth with, and allow more freedom. Keep reading to learn more about Invisalign and how they can help your teen.
Comfort. Traditional metal braces have archwires and brackets that can rub against the soft tissues in your teen’s mouth. Archwires and brackets can make traditional braces uncomfortable to wear. Invisalign is made of a soft plastic material that does not have sharp edges. Without sharp edges, there is less of a chance for soft tissue damage to your teen’s cheeks and gums while wearing Invisalign.
Removable. One thing that most teens love is that Invisalign is removable. A removable aligner allows your teen to eat the foods they want and brush and floss their teeth without the nuisance of brackets and archwires. At our Canton, MS dental office, we instruct our patients to wear their aligners for 20-22 hours per day. The other hours when they are not wearing the aligners, they can remove the aligner to eat or brush and floss their teeth. Remember, when your teen releases the retainer, have them rinse it out before placing it back in their mouth.
Shorter Dental Visits. At Dental Solutions of Mississippi, we have fewer follow-up appointments for patients with Invisalign. We recommend shorter appointments because, during your appointment, we give your teen an updated aligner instead of adjusting the brace’s archwires. Every one to two weeks, your teen will receive a new set of aligners. Each time your teen gets a new set of aligners, they move closer to their dream smile. Not only are there shorter dental visits, the time to align the teen is typically faster than traditional metal braces– another advantage for many teens and their families.
Confidence. Many teens want to straighten their teeth discreetly. They would like to avoid the appearance of traditional braces to align their smile. With Invisalign, this is possible. Your dentist at Dental Solutions of Mississippi can help your teen align their smile discreetly with Invisalign.
Can Invisalign do More Than Straighten Teeth?
Yes! Invisalign can help your teen with more than straightening their teeth. Invisalign can also correct crowded teeth, space between teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, and more. Ask your dentist at Dental Solutions of Mississippi about your teen’s specific bite or dental concern to see if Invisalign can help.
Why Choose Invisalign Over Other Aligners?
There are several different teeth aligners on the market today; however, at Dental Solutions of Mississippi, we believe that Invisalign is the best choice for your teen. Among the benefits listed above, Invisalign allows your teen to straighten their teeth with dental monitoring, an advantage that many other aligner companies do not offer. Along your teen’s dental journey, your dentist at Dental Solutions of Mississippi will be there with them, guiding the process, looking for concerns, and encouraging them along the way.
Helping your teen align their smile can be a big decision. At Dental Solutions of Mississippi, we are here to help you and your teen through the process. For more information about Invisalign or to schedule an appointment, call our office today.
