Invisalign® is a great option for teens who have an active work and social life and are concerned about aesthetics. The teenage years are an often turbulent time for many kids, a time when they are quite self-conscious and don’t want to stand out from the crowd. Invisalign® clear aligners can give your teen confidence while they undergo orthodontic treatment in Plant City.
Here are some of the reasons why teens love Invisalign® clear aligners.
At this stage in a child’s life, aesthetics is one of the most important things they consider when choosing orthodontic treatment. They want to feel confident around their peers, not stand out because they have metal in their mouths.
This is one of the best features of the Invisalign® system – it’s virtually invisible. The clear aligners are nearly undetectable during everyday activities.
While the aligners are hardly noticeable, there are going to be certain times during your teen’s high school experience when they don’t want to wear their clear aligners. Typically, these times include:
Thankfully, you can temporarily remove the aligners during these events and replace them immediately after. Your teen will also like the fact that they can remove their aligners to eat, which allows them to eat with comfort and not worry about getting food caught in their braces.
We also like the fact that teens are more likely to practice good oral hygiene at home because they can brush and floss just like normal.
One of the downsides of metal braces is that when the soft tissues of your cheeks, lips, or tongue rub against the metal, it can result in some soreness. Another downside, the brackets can come loose, ceramic braces can chip (though it’s not common), and the wires can come loose – all of which can result in minor soft tissue injuries.
You don’t have to worry about any of that with Invisalign® in Plant City. The aligners are made of sturdy, durable plastic yet they feel soft and don’t have any sharp edges.
Some of the downsides mentioned above (loose brackets, poking archwire) are considered orthodontic emergencies.
These emergencies can be uncomfortable and can halt the progress of orthodontic treatment. They require that you schedule an orthodontic appointment as soon as possible, which can be inconvenient with your busy schedule and cause your child to miss school or extracurricular activities.
But with Invisalign®, you rarely experience orthodontic emergencies. The worst thing that can happen is your child loses one of their aligners and we have to replace it – definitely an easy fix!
Invisalign® is such a well-conceived system that it works for just about everyone. There are just a few people who fall into the category of not being a good candidate. For teens, the only reason they might not be eligible for this form of treatment is that they cannot comply with treatment instructions, they’re at high risk of losing their aligners regularly, or they have a complex orthodontic case.
Otherwise, nearly anyone with the following conditions can benefit from Invisalign® in Plant City:
Word of mouth is a great way to find a quality orthodontic provider. However, there’s another way to make sure your teen is getting the very best treatment.
If you want the best, search for Diamond+ providers who successfully serve nearly 400 Invisalign® patients every single year. Only one percent of Invisalign® providers are listed in this tier, where you’ll find the name of your Plant City orthodontist, Dr. Busciglio.
In addition to being a Diamond+ orthodontist, Dr. Busciglio is also a board-certified orthodontist, which is the highest level of achievement for an orthodontist. To reach that level, the orthodontist must pass high-level oral and written exams and present cases to a board of examiners. Only 20% of orthodontists in the country have achieved board certification.
If you want to feel confident choosing the best orthodontist for your teen, schedule a consultation with Dr. Busciglio today!
