Using Invisalign Teen to Correct Your Child's Smile

Young-Teen-Student-copyStart this school year off right from that first smile in class to your final picture in the yearbook. At Yummy Dental & Orthodontics, we know that having traditional braces can sometimes feel like a lot to handle because, while most teens do experience the right of passage that is orthodontia at some point, your confidence and image are always important.

As such, our doctors at the Chicago and Glenview offices are proud to offer other types of orthodontic treatment to serve as substitutes for traditional metal braces – the most popular of which is Invisalign Teen.

Invisalign Teen is a less noticeable, more comfortable way to achieve that straighter smile you're after. The clear aligners utilized by Invisalign Teen treatment are designed to be invisible, not interfering with the appearance of your smile. 

Additionally, the customized aligners are removable. This feature gives you the freedom to eat whatever you want. Unlike with traditional braces, you simply need to take out your aligners if you want to enjoy foods like ribs or corn-on-the-cob. Moreover, this removability allows you the option to take out aligners for important social events, pictures, etc.

Invisalign Teen is an amazing substitute for traditional braces. With this kind of treatment, you can continue to live your life without the hindrance of a metal-mouth clouding your confidence. All the while, your teeth will experience the same long-term straightening benefits of traditional braces, and (because of the flexible nature of Invisalign aligners) you will be more comfortable and have an affective means to protect your teeth against grinding too.

This fall, strut down those school hallways with Invisalign Teen – the subtle substitute for metal braces that gives you all the benefits with none of the embarrassment. To learn more about Invisalign Teen, make an appointment with one of Yummy Dental's pediatric orthodontists today. Or, contact us at either our Glenview or Chicago location, and a member of our caring, committed staff will be happy to speak with you!
