Houston’s Invisalign Teen®: Shaping Smiles In Texas
Your teenage years are said to be the best years of your life. You’re constantly on the go around Houston or hanging out with your friends and having a good time. Why would you want braces with all those wires and brackets slowing you down? Dr. Karotkin and the staff at Advance Orthodontics are committed to straightening your pearly whites with minimum impact on your daily life and without “metal-mouth.” You may wonder how that’s possible and the answer is easy: Invisalign Teen®.
How is Invisalign Teen® different than braces?
It uses comfortable, clear plastic aligners to gently straighten your teeth opposed to the hard, pokey metal braces, which can be very uncomfortable. The aligners are custom made to fit your mouth perfectly. You just wear the aligners over your teeth and your smile will slowly ease into place. You switch to a new set of aligners every two weeks, and before you know it, your smile is looking great! The biggest difference between Invisalign Teen® and braces? They’re practically invisible, so you can smile confidently in every Instagram photo you take, and no one will even know.
What are the benefits of Invisalign Teen®?
The best part about these clear aligners is that fixing your teeth won’t slow you down. Whether your play in the band or on the field, having a mouth full of metal can often keep you from doing things you love, but with Invisalign Teen® you have no restrictions. The aligners fit your teeth comfortably, so there are no wires poking your cheeks or gums and getting in the way.
Since the aligners can be removed during chow time, there’s no restrictions on what you can eat either. Go ahead, eat all the popcorn, caramel and crunchy tacos you want. And if you do happen to get something stuck in your teeth it’s no big deal. Because Invisalign Teen® is 100% removable you can brush and floss just like you normally would with no problems at all.
How is Invisalign Teen® different from Invisalign®?
While they both work in the same way, Invisalign Teen® has special features designed specifically for a teenage lifestyle. We all know that teens have a lot going on in their lives, and sometimes things get misplaced or broken. With Invisalign Teen® you have up to six free replacement aligners if you happen to lose or break yours. This way you won’t have to go digging in every trashcan around Houston looking for your lost set. The teen aligners also have blue dot indicators located on the inside of the aligner to remind teens when it’s time to switch out aligners.
