For older, active teens who want a straight smile but do not want the look, feel and extra effort that come with metal braces, Invisalign Teen® in Glastonbury, Connecticut, may be the answer. The Invisalign system allows your teen to continue their lifestyle while receiving a smile that can serve them well for the rest of their lives.
Invisalign clear aligners bring with them benefits that traditional braces simply cannot compete with. The most obvious benefit is that the clear aligners are not obvious! Having a mouth full of stainless steel can be a source of social anxiety and a social stigma, but Invisalign clear aligners neatly sidestep this issue by blending in almost perfectly with your teen’s smile.
The other big benefit of the Invisalign system is how easy it is for your teen to care for their clear aligners and their own teeth. Since the aligners are removeable, your child can take them out to eat and for their at-home oral health care. No broken brackets, snapped wires or bits of food lodged in impossible-to-reach places. Not having to learn new hygiene habits or use bulky equipment will also make it easier for your child to stay up on their brushing and flossing, helping their treatment to go as smoothly and quickly as possible.
If you are interested in Invisalign clear aligners for your teenage child, call Risinger Orthodontics today at 860-633-8321 to make an appointment for them with our orthodontist, Dr. Richard Risinger. Our team is enthusiastic and experienced, and we will make sure your investment is one of the best decisions you have ever made.
Invisalign® clear aligners can help you achieve the beautiful, straight smile you want without the hassle of traditional metal braces. Metal braces may interfere with a teen’s active lifestyle; school, dating, sports and hanging out with friends are important parts of life, and braces could get in the way of reaching meaningful goals. Invisalign Teen® treatment utilizes the innovative technology of Invisalign clear aligners to help our teen patients reach the goals they have for their smile in a discreet, comfortable way. Orthodontics does not have to interfere with the exciting time of life that teens are experiencing.
The Invisalign Teen system consists of clear plastic trays that fit directly over your teeth to straighten them. No metal brackets. No wires. The virtually invisible trays can be easily removed, so you can take them out when you eat, drink, brush and floss. With Invisalign Teen aligners, it is easy for you to continue with your normal activities, like playing sports and musical instruments.
During your Invisalign treatment, we will meet with you periodically to evaluate your smile’s progress and to give you new, modified trays to keep your orthodontic treatment on track. Our orthodontist can use Invisalign Teen treatment as a way to help our teen patients discreetly achieve the straight smiles they want. We invite you to contact our office to learn more about Invisalign Teen clear aligners and schedule your appointment with our friendly team.
