Invisalign: Clear Teen Braces
It's widely advised that the ideal time for orthodontic treatment is during the age of 11-15. This is mainly because most of us already have most of our permanent teeth, which makes it far easier to detect issues such as crooked teeth, bad bites and possible gaps.
As your body is constantly growing at this age, orthodontic treatment can take advantage of these growth spurts to improve your overall bite as well as reduce treatment time as well as decrease any possible sensations of discomfort. We offer a wide range of teen braces here at Seapoint Clinic, but Invisalign is rapidly becoming one of our most popular treatments with teenagers....but just what are they?
Invisalign uses a set of clear aligners, which gently move your teeth into the desired position over time. This means you get the benefits of a full, healthy smile without the hassle of having any metal braces placed. What's even better is that because they use clear aligners, most people won't even be aware that you are wearing aligners or undergoing any treatment. They really are that discreet!
Unlike traditional braces, you can even eat what you want, when you want! As your Invisalign aligners are easily removable, you can take them out and eat all your favourite foods. This also makes keeping your teeth nice and sparkly even easier too, since no food wqill get stuck in your metal braces.
The Benefits of Invisalign
- Most people won't notice you're in treatment
- It won't disrupt your lifestyle
- No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth
