What Parents Need to Know
Parents always want what’s best for their children. They often realize that, while orthodontics will greatly improve their child’s smile, it may also lead to considerable pain and embarrassment. You’re also concerned about overall dental health, because although braces align teeth, they also make it difficult to care for them. As a result, tooth decay is not unusual after using braces. Invisalign Teen from our Auburn dentist is the 21st Century dental solution for these two major orthodontic side effects.
Invisalign Teen is a removable aligner that doesn’t require metal, wires and bulky attachments. Therefore, your child eats the same foods, participates in the same activities and experiences the same occasions and photo opportunities as other children, without any self-consciousness!
When it comes to comfort, Invisalign replaces uncomfortable braces with smooth, tailor-made plastic aligners. They avoid the irritations of ordinary orthodontics. Each Invisalign aligner creates slight discomfort when first employed, the same as braces after adjustments, but this generally goes away overnight as the jaw becomes used to the new forces applied to the teeth.
One advantage to employing traditional braces, however, is that they can not be lost! So many moms and dads ask: “What do I do when my teen misplaces an aligner?” With Invisalign Teen, the office of Rock Creek Dental can offer up to six replacement aligners for free.
Finally, orthodontics only function when they’re in your youngster’s mouth. So Invisalign Teen aligners arrive with the Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which moms and dads can look at to make certain their children are properly using this investment in their wellness and appearance.
