Invisalign Teen® in Birmingham – Basic Information
If you’re a teen with crooked teeth, you know just how self-conscious that can make you feel. This is a bit of a catch-22, however, since getting braces can leave you feeling self-conscious as well. It’s for this reason that many teens and parents of teens ask us about Invisalign®. At our Birmingham practice, we offer teenage patients Invisalign Teen®, which is a way to get a straight and great-looking smile without the brackets and wires of traditional braces.
What are the benefits of Invisalign Teen®?
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign Teen® is that the aligners are virtually invisible. This means that teens don’t have to feel self-conscious about their appearance. This is especially important for class photos, formals, and prom, where you want to look your best. Since the Invisalign® aligners are removable, they can be taken out as needed.
Invisalign® lets you eat the foods that you love, which is something that can’t be said about traditional braces. You can still eat popcorn and candy when undergoing Invisalign® treatment, but just make sure that you aren’t wearing the aligners while eating. Cleaning your teeth is simple and convenient with Invisalign® as well.
Because accidents can happen, parents will be glad to know that we will provide six free replacement aligners to Invisalign Teen® patients. This is just in case an aligner is misplaced or lost.
Who is a good candidate for Invisalign Teen®?
Good candidates for Invisalign Teen® at our Birmingham practice are young men and women with crooked teeth who have generally good dental health and realistic expectations about what Invisalign® treatment can achieve. Invisalign® will not be able
to address overbites, underbites, or extremely misaligned teeth, so patients with those issues you will need different sorts of orthodontic treatment. It’s also important to note that older teenagers are better suited for Invisalign® than young adolescents.
The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign Teen® is to visit Maniscalco Cosmetic and General Dentistry in Birmingham for a comprehensive consultation.
