Do you remember braces from way back when? The wrap around metal brackets, bonded brackets, clunky head gear? When I was a child, I had horrible teeth. They were so crooked, I was on the path to wearing all the head gear and metal braces for at least several years. I don’t know if it was lucky or not, but I fell and broke my jaw in first grade and had to have my mouth wired shut for six weeks. That fall straightened my teeth beautifully – but I do not recommend it as a way of getting out of braces.
Luckily, those old metal braces are becoming a thing of the past. Just like technology improves our daily lives, it also advances orthodontics and today’s braces are better than ever… and far more sophisticated than they ever were.
Removable aligners, like Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, offer clear braces and are quickly becoming a better option than traditional metal braces. The lightweight plastic material sits smoothly on the teeth. This allows a more comfortable fit while working as well as the traditional style of braces. One big difference between Invisalign and metal braces is that Invisalign can be removed. Kids can eat, brush their teeth, and floss like normal, all without the hindrance of metal braces. Invisalign can also help keep kids confident because this type of treatment is almost invisible when they smile, laugh, or talk with their friends.
Take a look at these before and after pictures:
If you happen to visit a dentist and you are told that your child is not a candidate for Invisalign, you may want to consider getting a second opinion. After all, not all dentists and orthodontists are certified Invisalign providers. The very best way to find a certified provider is to visit the Invisalign Doctor Locator.
