If you’ve thought about straightening your teeth anytime within the past decade, you’ve likely heard of Invisalign as an option. Contrary to traditional wires and brackets, the Invisalign system involves wearing a thin set of plastic, transparent aligners in your mouth.
Modern orthodontic treatment has never been easier, more effective or more comfortable, but despite this, it does still require commitment, especially as your children are likely to be wearing braces for quite some time to come. It’s hardly surprising that children and teenagers often feel a little apprehensive about receiving orthodontic treatment, as, after all, it is a brand-new experience. However, with a little preparation, you can help get your child get ready for orthodontic treatment and of course, Dr. Christina Pepper and our dental team here at Charlotte Advanced Orthodontics are always here to support you both and to offer advice. Listed below are some of the ways you can help prepare your child.
Here at Charlotte Advanced Orthodontics, we love nothing more than seeing someone successfully complete treatment with Invisalign. As the end of your orthodontic treatment draws to a close, you’re probably really excited to see the final outcome and to begin enjoying your lovely new smile. After your dedication to successfully completing treatment, you will want to ensure that the results of treatment last for life. To do this, you must follow Dr. Christina Pepper’s instructions on caring for your new smile.
Traditionally, straightening your teeth meant wearing metal braces that although highly effective are quite visible. These braces are still widely used but today there are other options. While some people don’t mind wearing metal braces and even look forward to customizing their look with colored bands, adults, and self-conscious teenagers might not be so enthusiastic. This is where Invisalign can be a wonderful alternative to wearing traditional braces. With Invisalign, you can look forward to straightening your teeth nearly invisibly, so you can enjoy a beautifully straight smile without the need for any metal brackets or wires. This could be the ideal solution if you have always hankered after a straighter smile but have never relished the thought of wearing braces.
