What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an invisible, removable form of braces for kids.
How does it work?
When the aligners are placed on the teeth, it causes them to shift from their current position. The process involves switching liners every two weeks, each liner is used differently to complete the full teeth straightening process.
How old should my kids be?
Invisalign is typically recommended to kids who have all of their permanent teeth (usually around the ages 10 to 14 years old), no tooth decay or pending dental treatments.
What are the differences between Invisalign and traditional braces?
- Invisalign does not have metal wires
- There are no elastics
- No food gets trapped in the Invisalign braces
- Invisalign is comfortable to wear and thin
- Easy to wash/clean
What is so good about Invisalign?
Invisalign treats a variety of dental issues; gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, overly crowded teeth, and crossbite. It straightens your teeth while being invisible and your kids can eat anything they want without worrying if it will get stuck or not. The best thing about Invisalign is that it is priced similar to traditional braces but they are removable making flossing and brushing very simple.
