How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is an innovative technology that allows your teen to
straighten their teeth discreetly. The first step to getting Invisalign
for your teen is taking them into Haws Family Dentistry to consult with
Dr. Haws. At your first appointment, Dr. Haws and his team will take an
impression of your teen’s smile. The image will help Invisalign, and Dr.
Haws, determine the best treatment plan for your child. Next, your child
will receive a set of clear aligners. They should wear these aligners
for 20-22 hours per day. In one to two weeks, they will receive another
set of aligners. For the next year or so, the treatment will go like
this. Every one to two weeks, they will receive a new set of aligners
from wearing until their smile is perfectly straight.
What Conditions can Invisalign Treat?
Invisalign’s primary goal is to help align your teen’s smile.
Additionally, Invisalign can treat several other dental conditions, such
as overbite, underbite, and crowding. Another condition that Invisalign
can treat is spacing concerns.
Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign has many benefits compared to traditional braces. By
allowing your teen to eat what they want and being convenient and easy
to use, there are many reasons to use Invisalign over conventional
braces. Below are a few of the benefits.
Brush the way They like: Invisalign is a convenient tool to help
your teen straighten their smile by allowing them to put them in and
take them off when they would like. With Invisalign, your teen’s oral
hygiene routine does not have to change: They remove their aligner when
brushing and flossing and then place them back in place after finishing.
This convenience makes brushing and flossing their teeth easier because
brackets and archwires are not in the way.
Eat the Foods They Like: Certain foods are restricted with
traditional braces because sticky or hard foods can damage the
archwires. There is no need to worry about this with Invisalign. When
eating, the only stipulation is that your teen must remove their
aligners when they eat anything.
Nearly Invisible Appearance: Invisalign offers an almost invisible
appearance. The clear aligners are hard to see unless someone looks
closely. Many teens desire to straighten their teeth discreetly.
Invisalign is perfect for this.
Shorter Treatment Plan: On average, Invisalign treatment can be
completed sooner than traditional metal braces. Additionally, there are
shorter visits to the dentist with Invisalign. Every one to two weeks,
your teen will get a new set of aligners that will help their teeth get
closer to the result.
Treatment Following Invisalign: After your teen’s Invisalign
experience, they must wear a retainer at night to keep their beautiful
smile aligned. There are several different retainer options, from fixed
to removable. Discuss with Dr. Haws to find out which retainer option is
best for your child.
Invisalign is an excellent option for many teens and adults across the
world. At Haws Family Dentistry in Brigham City, Utah, we recommend
Invisalign to teens looking to align their smiles, fix underbites and
overbites, adjust spacing concerns, and correct overcrowding. For more
