Straightening Teeth Without the Fuss


Straightening Teeth Misaligned Smiles

Teenagers can be incredibly self-conscious – we all remember those days! Having overcrowded, ‘wonky’ or misaligned teeth is extremely common while children grow.

Dental problems like these can make eating and speaking difficult and will most definitely affect your child’s confidence at some point.

Option for traditional braces

A traditional metal brace is an immediate option that springs to mind for most parents.

However, these aren’t very discreet and can take some time. Sometimes, even wearing a noticeable metal brace can put many children off. See Invisalign.

There is an option for treatment that will give excellent results and cause little disruption to your child’s lifestyle.

Invisalign has developed a therapy to straighten teeth with older children and teenage patients in mind.

  • Invisalign uses a series of custom-made, clear ‘invisible’ trays called aligners.
  • These aligners are made with a smooth, pliable material and are removable and comfortable. They work by gradually moving teeth into the desired position.
  • It can treat conditions such as crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, overcrowding and crossbites.

Advantages of Invisalign

The massive advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, playing sports and special occasions! Invisalign aligners should be worn for at least 22 out of 24 hours. But as they can be removed, they will fit perfectly with your child’s busy life.

If you are considering Invisalign for your child, you might like to know that the aligners are custom-made and evaluate the growth and development of teeth and jaws while growing. Invisalign is designed to cope with the eruption of canines, molars and second premolars; in many cases, the aligners can move teeth without needing extractions, as with conventional braces.
