At Sunrise Dental, we help patients of all ages from all over North Carolina to achieve the smile of their dreams. We realize that if you have a teenager in need of orthodontic treatment, you are probably already weighing the pros and cons of all the available options. You might be interested to know that we have some great alternative solutions to those attention-grabbing, time-consuming metal contraptions that most area practices feature.
Don’t misunderstand what we are saying. Conventional braces have had their place, and they have been utilized to transform an entire generation of smiles. It’s just that they have always left something to be desired. As such, we think you should consider Invisalign as an option since it has now been modified to work effectively on adolescent teeth, and it is probably the easiest way to get the job done.
Besides, this isn’t all about cosmetics. Sure, an orthodontic treatment can vastly improve your child’s appearance, but it will also help them keep their teeth healthier in the long run. You see, straighter teeth provide fewer places for harmful disease and decay causing substances to hide out. By straightening your teen’s teeth now with Invisalign, you are helping them to optimize their oral health, which will provide them with lifelong benefits.

Invisalign Clear “Braces” Changed The Game
There is so much to say about Invisalign. But the first reason for choosing this kind of treatment for your teen is clear: Invisalign doesn’t have any impact on your teen’s appearance because this method does not require any metal for shifting teeth.
Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign uses transparent, lightweight aligners made of plastic. These fit snugly over the teeth and are custom-built using advanced imagery to ensure a comfortable fit. These aligners gently guide your teeth into the more preferred position in small steps. You wear each set until it’s time to change aligners every two weeks or so.
There will be no time-consuming in-office adjustments, or harsh wires to break or poke you in the soft tissues at the back of your mouth. Your teen will simply pop in the new aligners when appropriate, and they will be good to go.
Another reason your teen will love Invisalign is that maintenance of the aligners couldn’t be any easier. Special brushes and tools that you need to keep regualar old braces clean, won’t be necessary. For cleaning, you simply remove the aligners and clean them under lukewarm water! You also get to keep brushing and flossing as usual throughout the process.
Since they’re removable, your teenager will have the ability to continue eating whatever their growing body demands without any dietary restrictions.
In the end, the results will be just as stunning as a conventional orthodontic treatment would deliver, but it won’t involve as much time or as many inconveniences. And your teen will love that they won’t have to sacrifice their appearance during treatment for the sake of improvements down the road.
All we can say is that Invisalign is a safe, subtle, fast and effective way to straighten out any annoying orthodontic issues. To find out if this program will work for you or your teen, all you have to do is schedule your orthodontic consultation with Dr. Vice.
