When I was in middle school I wanted braces so bad. That was until a few friends started getting them. They complained about what they couldn’t eat, when food was stuck in their braces and how it hurt when they were “tightened.”
Fast forward a few years. Invisalign was made available to the public in May of 2000. At that time, it was only available for adults. After all, adults want to have a nice smile – right?
Well, now teens can have have a nice smile too – with Invisalign for teens!
Believe it or not, I was a teen girl once. I remember going through peer pressure, puberty and crushes. I couldn’t imagine having the extra stress from crooked or spaced teeth. The chart below is really an eye opener!
Okay, so enough about me rambling about my childhood dreams! Let me tell you more about Invisalign.
How Invisalign Works:
Invisalign uses a custom-made series of aligners that are made specifically for your teeth. The aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and almost completely clear plastic. All you have to do is slip them on your teeth. Overtime, your teeth shift. Each set can be removed and is to be replaced every 2 weeks. No brackets or wires!
There are virtually only 5 steps in this process.
- Talk to an Invisalign provider
- Get started – take x-rays and map out a plan
- Get your custom aligners
- Occasionally check in with your provider and change out your aligners every 2 weeks
- Reveal your new smile!
