In the past when children had teeth that needed to be straightened for appearance or to fix alignment issues there was only one option; metal braces. Children and teens have always hated the idea of having braces because they were so obvious. Teens often have self-esteem issues and being teased about braces adds to the problem.
Now with Invisalign we are able to solve misalignment issues and give your children a beautiful smile with discreet, clear aligners. We can treat bite issues, overcrowded teeth, underbite, overbite, crossbite and teeth that are spaced too far apart. Invisalign works similarly to the old metal and wire braces but without the embarrassment to your children.
We create plastic aligner trays to gradually move the teeth as needed. Every couple of weeks we create new aligners to continue the alignment process.
The Invisalign system of solving bite issues is much more comfortable than the old metal brackets with wire. With these clear aligners you get a beautiful smile, no metal braces and avoid the discomfort of the old metal brackets with wires that would often break. Additionally metal braces stayed in place until the desired results were achieved. Special instructions for cleaning around the braces always had to be given. Invisalign aligners can be removed so that the teeth can be brushed and flossed properly and then put back in place.
Only you, your child and our office staff will know that the Invisalign aligners are being used.
