The teen years are a time when malocclusion treatment can take place. For many, this timely care will help them fix issues with their smile at a time when they can be more self-conscious about how they look. As appealing as it can be for them to finally show off a set of teeth not affected by gaps and overlaps, they may be uncomfortable using metal braces that are fixed in place. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office is prepared to offer an alternative—for many affected by improper spacing, it is possible to begin treatment with Invisalign aligners!
Invisalign Is An Appealing Alternative To Treatment With Metal Braces
Because they are both set in place for the full duration of treatment and hard to overlook, many people feel unhappy with the idea of wearing metal braces. While it may be less stressful for teenagers to wear them, as these appliances are often used during these years to take on flaws, they can still prefer a more discreet alternative. Our practice can talk to you about using Invisalign aligners instead. With these appliances, we are able to fix issues with gaps and overlaps, and we can do so without the need to place an appliance that must be permanently secured.
When Your Teen Begins Treatment To Straighten Their Smile
Treatment with Invisalign will start after careful measurements are taken to determine what a patient needs from treatment, and to see what they need in terms of aligner shape and size. A set of these appliances is provided at the beginning of care. As they move from one to the next, your teen will gradually see changes to their smile that include the closing of gaps, the straightening of overlapping teeth, and other general improvements. During this time, they can appreciate how little impact their appliances have on how they look, and you can appreciate how class pictures and other important photos do not have metal braces visible.
Invisalign Can Also Help Adults Fix Spacing Problems
Remember that orthodontic treatment is not just a procedure for teens. Many adults can benefit from this care, either because they have never undergone corrective work or because their teeth have shifted later in life. We can talk to you about what to expect from your adjustment, and what we can do to make your procedure more appealing. In addition to setting up consultations to discuss this matter, we can review the benefits with you when you bring up your interest during a general dental exam.
