If your teen needs braces, here are 10 reasons to consider San Tan Valley Invisalign at Robison Orthodontics.
1. Invisalign is Proven
Based on a digital impression, the customized program straightens teeth without using metal braces. The product can be used on adult teeth as well.
2. Invisalign is Effective
Invisalign will straighten your teen's teeth in less time than metal braces without the social embarrassment and multiple appointments.
3. Invisalign Works Fast
As a parent, you are concerned with your teen's comfort level and progress during the straightening process. With Invisalign, you and your teen can see changes daily.
4. Invisalign is Less Painful
Traditional braces have metal brackets that rub against the inside of the mouth or break, requiring a visit to the orthodontist. The wires used with metal braces can also be a mouth irritant, poking or causing sores.
5. Teens Love to Wear Invisalign
Invisalign aligners must be worn up to 22 hours per day for optimal results. Since the product has compliance indicators built right in, you will know if your teen is staying with the program. If aligners are lost, it is very easy to get replacements. It is vital for your teen to have regular checkups to monitor progress and make needed adjustments.
6. Teens Feel More Confident with Invisalign
Teens can struggle socially and having to wear braces may present social embarrassment or limitations in extracurricular activities. Clear aligners are an excellent choice for those who play sports or participate in band and drama clubs.
7. Invisalign Reduces Office Visits
Metal braces have wires and brackets that often break, requiring trips to the dental office for repair. This can be costly if there has been a blow to the mouth from sports activity or some other cause.
8. Invisalign Allows for Normal Life Activities
Invisalign aligners are unobtrusive, allowing your teen to participate with confidence in school pictures and other activities. They also offer the benefit of easy removal for the enjoyment of favorite foods and regular brushing and flossing. This keeps the mouth healthier during the straightening program.
9. Invisalign is Covered by Insurance
If you have orthodontic insurance, you can be reimbursed for Invisalign at the same rate as other treatment plans. In the end, the cost for Invisalign is about the same as traditional braces.
10. Invisalign Teen Guarantee
This allows you and your teen to evaluate Invisalign for six months. If you decide it is not the right treatment for your child's teeth, you can switch to metal braces without additional cost.
