Rochester area dentist straightens teeth, corrects bite with Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Braces For Teens From Dr. John Aurelia In Rochester

Invisalign has been lauded as an alternative for adults who don’t want to wear traditional metal braces, but it is also a treatment for teenage family members with misaligned teeth.
 
Align Technology has developed a product that is specifically marketed and designed for younger patients, Invisalign Teen.
 
Unlike its Invisalign counterpart, the teen straightening option has built-in blue indicators that fade over time so John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC can confirm that the patient is wearing the aligners as directed. This is important, because the aligner trays must be worn as prescribed. Should these removable aligners not be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours daily, it can jeopardize the effectiveness of straightening. Eruption tabs are also built in to accommodate the emergence of secondary molars among patients whose teeth are still in a process of development.
 
Keeping in mind that teens are busy with hockey, basketball, and other activities where accidents can happen, Invisalign Teen offers six complimentary replacement aligners.
 
While both adults and youth can experience greater comfort and ease of cleaning with removable orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign, perhaps one of the most important benefits of Invisalign for teens is among the most obvious features of this dental appliance: the aligner trays are clear and discreet.
 
If your child is like the 12 to 17 year olds interviewed by research firm Kelton (on behalf of Align Technology), he, or she wants a straighter smile but doesn’t want the metal wires and brackets to get that improved smile.
 
In fact, the survey found that:

  • 55 percent of teens aged 15 to 17 would smile less if wearing metal braces
  • 54 percent reportedly said wearing traditional braces would make them feel self-conscious
  • 35 percent thought they would be bullied for wearing metal braces

The teen years can be a challenging time for many students. Why exacerbate existing self-esteem issues with metal braces? Call (248) 651-6810, and schedule an appointment in our Rochester area office.
