Carson City: Invisalign Teen

The teenage years are often challenging. Teenagers tend to be self-conscious, and their appearance influences their sense of self-worth. Since a person’s smile improves their appearance, a teenager’s smile can affect their confidence.

Approximately three out of every four children need braces to correct issues such as malocclusions or crooked teeth. Those who don’t receive orthodontic treatment during childhood can benefit from Invisalign for teenagers. Let’s look at Invisalign treatments, the benefits for teens, and how our Carson City dentists can help brighten your smile.

Advantages Of Invisalign For Teens

Invisalign aligners offer many advantages for teens needing orthodontic treatments.

Suitability for Teenagers

Thanks to Invisalign, teens can receive expert orthodontic treatment without unsightly metal braces that make them self-conscious. Their design makes Invisalign aligners almost invisible, so they don’t prompt others to tease or draw attention to dental issues.

One major benefit of Invisalign aligners is that they’re more comfortable than metal braces. They’re suitable for severe and minor issues and reduce the time needed for treatment. The most severe problems take approximately 18 months to resolve, while others complete treatments in just six months

Additional Benefits Of Invisalign Teen

It can be challenging for anyone to clean their teeth when wearing metal braces. However, Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easy for teens to perform oral hygiene tasks like flossing and brushing.

Correcting the alignment of your teeth also has the benefit of adjusting your face shape. Improving your face shape during your teen years will also help boost your confidence. 

Treatment Process With Invisalign

You’ll follow a straightforward treatment process when you choose Invisalign. The first step involves consulting your Carson City orthodontist to discuss your needs. 

After your orthodontist evaluates and scans your teeth, they prepare a treatment plan. 

Your orthodontist submits the scans and orders your Invisalign aligners. When the aligners arrive, you return to see your orthodontist, receive instructions about their care and use, and begin wearing them.

You return to your orthodontist as instructed for assessment and adjustments. 

Once treatments are complete, you will enjoy your beautiful new smile.

Compliance And Responsibility

The most crucial rule for Invisalign wearers is to wear the aligners for at least 20 hours daily. You will not enjoy the quick results Invisalign delivers if you do not wear your aligners for the minimum recommended daily amount.

Addressing Concerns And Myths

Let’s examine some common myths about Invisalign trays:

  • Myth # 1: Invisalign is only suitable for minor adjustments but can’t treat severe malocclusions
  • Fact: Invisalign is suitable for minor and severe adjustments
  • Myth # 2: Invisalign takes longer than metal braces
  • Fact: Invisalign treatments work faster
  • Myth # 3: Invisalign is suitable for adults but not children or teens 
  • Fact: Invisalign is suitable for anyone with all their adult teeth, making it a perfect option for teenagers

Post-Treatment Care And Retention

Those using Invisalign must follow the use and care instructions they receive from their orthodontist. Routine care involves:

  • Regularly removing the aligners
  • Rinsing them
  • Brushing them
  • Soaking them in denture cleaner or approved cleaning crystals

Orthodontic Monitoring And Adjustments

You will need to see your Carson City orthodontist for monitoring and adjustments. Depending on your orthodontic issues, you may have appointments every six weeks, although some only need adjustments every eight weeks

Parental Involvement And Support

Although teenagers often test the limits of their growing independence, their parents must support them through their Invisalign treatments. Parents should check in and remind their teenagers to clean their Invisalign trays. They should also ensure their teens wear the aligners for the recommended time.

Parents can also attend monitoring appointments and raise questions or concerns with their teens’ orthodontist.
