Parents usually want the best for their children and may remember that getting braces made for healthier teeth, but involved a lot of pain and embarrassment. They are also concerned about their children’s overall dental health. Braces straighten teeth, but make it difficult to clean them. Children sometimes find it exasperating to correctly clean teeth with braces. Invisalign Teen from the Sacramento Dentistry Group is the 21st century dental solution for all of these orthodontic problems!
Invisalign Teen is a removable aligner that does not require any wires or unsightly attachments. So your child gets to eat the same foods, participate in the same sports and enjoy the same events and photo opportunities as other children!
On the comfort side, smooth plastic aligners replace odd-shaped braces. They are free from the irritations of conventional orthodontics. Each Invisalign aligner will create slight discomfort when first installed, just like braces after an adjustment, but this usually passes overnight as the jaw and muscles become used to the tension being applied to the teeth.
One advantage to traditional braces, however, is that they cannot be lost! Many parents ask: “What happens when my teenager loses an aligner?” With Invisalign Teen, our Sacramento office can provide up to six replacement aligners for free.
Finally, like any orthodontic appliance, Invisalign Teen only works if it is in your child’s mouth. So aligners come with a Blue Dot Wear Indicator, which you can check to make sure your son or daughter is properly using this investment in their health and appearance.
