Surrey Invisalign For Teens
Your teen years are formative and extremely important, and your oral health is no exception. It’s essential that your teeth and smile develop the right way, and that you learn how to properly care for and maintain your teeth and smile for the rest of your life.
As the name implies, Invisalign is an alternative to braces which aligns your teeth and is practically invisible. Many prefer Invisalign because of this, and for teens it’s especially important for those big milestones in your life, such as yearbook photos and grad. Invisalign braces are great for teenagers who prefer a more low key option solution than a mouth of metal, and make it possible for you to almost forget that you’re getting orthodontic treatment. Your friends may not even be able to tell!
How It Works
Invisalign devices are similar in appearance to retainers, but whereas retainers are meant to retain the position of your teeth after alignment (hence the name), Invisalign works through a series of incremental clear aligners to straighten your teeth.
After taking a digital X-Ray of your teeth and jaw, your Invisalign aligner is made from BPA-free plastic, customized to the dimensions of your mouth so it fits perfectly.
Invisalign treatment is a gradual process that requires multiple aligners, and you’ll switch to a new one about every two weeks, and we recommend that you check in with us every 6 weeks so we can track your progress.
Since Invisalign aligners can be removed, they don’t have the same kind of food restrictions of normal braces, meaning you can eat what you want, when you want. Maintenance and cleaning is also faster and easier, as flossing and brushing is as simple as removing the aligners. You don’t have to worry about working around any wires and brackets either!
