Glass Orthodontics cares for teen patients all across Daphne, Bay Minette, Atmore, and Brewton. Believe it or not, we were teenagers once too. We’re well aware of the pressure and stress that go along with being a teenager. But one concern teens in our communities shouldn’t have is their smiles. Nobody wants to have bulky metal brackets stuck to their teeth, no matter how old they are. Fortunately, there’s another option. Invisalign makes clear aligners specifically for teens. And Dr. Glass is happy to use them to help your teens.
Invisalign is a nearly invisible tray that slides over your teeth. It works in a series, with each subsequent tray making slightly more progressive adjustments to your teeth. Once you finish with a tray, Dr. Glass will fashion the next one. We’ll work with you to make sure you’re completely satisfied with your smile – no matter how many trays it takes.
Invisalign Clear Aligners for Teens
At Glass Orthodontics, we believe that Invisalign clear aligners are an excellent option for teens who want to straighten their teeth. Invisalign works by using a series of clear, removable aligners that slowly move the teeth where they ought to be. Unlike traditional braces using brackets and wires, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic that won’t irritate the mouth.
Invisalign clear aligners are customized to fit each patient’s teeth perfectly, making them a comfortable and effective way to straighten teeth. And because they’re clear, they’re virtually invisible, which means that teens can enjoy a straighter smile without feeling self-conscious.
Clear V. Traditional: How Do They Stack Up?
While clear aligners and traditional braces both work to straighten teeth, there are some critical differences between the two. Traditional braces use brackets and wires to apply pressure to the teeth, which gradually moves them into an ideal spot. On the other hand, Invisalign employs a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth. Over time, each tray helps ease the teeth into their correct position.
One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign clear aligners is that they are removable. This means teens can take them out to eat, brush, and floss, making oral hygiene more manageable and effective. And because they’re clear, they’re virtually invisible, which means that teens can enjoy a straighter smile without feeling self-conscious.
Clear Aligner Capabilities
In addition to straightening teeth, clear aligners can be used to correct various other orthodontic issues, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and gaps between teeth. At Glass Orthodontics, we use state-of-the-art digital technology to create custom aligners that are designed specifically for each patient’s needs.
Are Clear Aligners Only for Minor Cases?
Contrary to popular belief, clear aligners are for more than just minor cases. In fact, Invisalign clear aligners can be used to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, from mild to severe. Our experienced team will evaluate your specific needs and create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible results.
Clean And Clear
One of the advantages of clear aligners is that they’re easy to clean. At Glass Orthodontics, we recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild soap to clean your aligners. Avoid using toothpaste, as it can scratch the aligners. We recommend soaking your aligners in a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water for ten minutes daily to keep them clean and fresh.
How Will They Fit Into My Budget?
Our Daphne, Bay Minette, Atmore, and Brewton teams believe everyone deserves a healthy and beautiful smile. That’s why we offer a range of flexible payment options to make clear aligners affordable for everyone. We also work with most insurance companies to maximize coverage and minimize out-of-pocket expenses.
