The Perfect Choice is Closer Than You Think
While it’s certainly true that bite issues can develop at nearly any age. These include things like:
- A crossbite, which describes a situation where one or more of the upper teeth on one side are overlapped by a person’s lower teeth when they bite down.
- An overbite, which is when the top row of teeth overlaps with the bottom teeth to a significant degree whenever the jaw is closed.
- An open bite, which is when there is a gap between the upper and lower rows of teeth when the jaw is closed.
Gapped teeth, underbites, crowded teeth and others would absolutely fall under this category.
Luckily, Invisalign isn’t just a great solution for teens to correct all of these issues and more – it may very well be the best solution for a number of reasons that are certainly worth exploring.
Why Would I Want Invisalign, Anyway?
While it’s certainly fair to say that traditional braces technology has come a long way in the last decade in particular, Invisalign brings with it a number of incredible advantages that most simply cannot afford to ignore.
For starters, most people love the fact that Invisalign comes with far less frequent (not to mention shorter) trips to the orthodontist. You’ll usually have to visit your orthodontist once every six weeks or so to make sure that treatment is going as it should be and if it is, you’ll be out the door and on your way before you know it. Even if adjustments do need to be made, they’ll be done so to the aligners themselves – not to brackets and wires in your mouth.
Likewise, the Invisalign aligners themselves are totally removable – meaning that they’re both comfortable AND that you don’t have to watch what you eat for the duration of your treatments. You can have absolutely anything you’d like, so long as you A) remove the aligners before you eat, and B) brush and floss your teeth before putting them back in.
Because the aligners are removable, you can even take them out for special occasions – like family photos – without worrying about the fact that you were trying to correct your smile being recorded for all-time.
Last but not least, Invisalign is famous in part because the treatment itself allows you to glimpse into the future, as it were. When 3D imaging technology is used to take a scan of your mouth, not only will the aligners be designed to the exact dimensions of your teeth… but you’ll also be able to see exactly what your mouth will look like when your treatment is complete BEFORE that treatment ever begins.
