Many teenagers are affected by malocclusions that need to be fixed. However, the thought of going through high school with braces can be very embarrassing. Luckily for teenagers, Invisalign Teen® can be very helpful. Your teenager can get the smile that he or she deserves without wires.
Invisalign Teen® uses clear aligners so that nobody will even know your teenagers is getting dental care. As long as your teenager wears them for at least twenty-two hours a day, they will get the dental care they need without the embarrassment of wires and braces.
Here at Varghese Orthodontics, we are proud to offer Invisalign Teen®
Even better, your teenager will be able to remove the aligners when it is time to eat. He or she will be able to eat anything. There are no restrictions that usually come with braces, like avoiding corn on the cob. All he or she has to do is remove the aligners. Once your teenager is finished eating, it is important to brush both his or her teeth and the aligners.
Bummed out about having braces?
Invisalign Teen gives you a revolutionary new way to straighten your teeth for a “clearly” amazing smile!
The team has a game this Friday night, homecoming is in a month, and what about my yearbook pictures. If you are a candidate, Invisalign Teen offers the following advantages:
Clear: Invisalign is an esthetic approach to straightening teeth that consists of a series of precision-crafted, clear, plastic aligners that gently and gradually move your teeth into proper placement.
Removable: With Invisalign Teen you can eat whatever you want! Unlike traditional metal braces, your Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, which means you can go ahead and eat all the things you love without worrying about breaking a bracket or losing a rubber band.
Super comfortable: They fit in with any of your extracurricular activities. So whether you’re swimming the 1-meter freestyle, throwing the football out on the field, or playing the saxophone with the band, you don’t have to worry about your braces getting in the way!
Customized just for you: Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Varghese plans out for you using your computer-generated 3D models. As you switch aligners, your teeth gradually and comfortably shift, resulting in a beautiful smile
The Invisalign Teen Confidence Boost
When teenagers learn that they will need braces, one of their biggest concerns is how metal braces will affect their appearance. Rightfully so, 2 years is quite a commitment. With Invisalign, your teen will feel more confident because they know their teeth are growing straighter every day, without having the fear to flash a brace-free smile!
