Braces Then, and Like, Invisalign Now, Totally!

Taking you back to the 80’s Valley Girl style, haha!  In the late 80’s, I remember sporting bulky metal braces to help straighten my crooked teeth with a nasty overbite.  Thankfully, I didn’t have the scary looking {head-gear} to go along with it all, but I did have the rubber bands that started from the front and went diagonally to the back of my mouth to correct the overbite.  My mom was always vacuuming those little rubber bands because they were always snapping out, especially when I would yawn!  Ahhh memories, LOL!  I just wish I could find a photo of me with those lovely metal brackets…..

Just recently, I was introduced to an alternative to braces that I think you and your teen may be interested in learning about.  Invisalign! It’s also available to pre-teens as well.

Braces are a right of passage for many kids, and thanks to the 21st Century technology such as Invisalign Teen, patients can watch their winning smile evolve instead of waiting to see the final result when the traditional metal brackets come off.  Invisalign patients can start to see improvements and progress in as little as 90 days.

Had this been available when I was wearing braces, I think I would have loved for my parents to consider this option.  It seems much easier to deal with and can’t beat “invisible.”

Invisalign is compliance driven. You need to have all of your adult teeth to sport these.

No broken wires. You can eat what you want when taking the trays out! Perfect!

No gaps! Teeth look laminated like a library card. And you can speak well! Motivated patients are key!

How does Invisalign work exactly?  Visit the Invisalign website to read full details about the clear alternative to braces. The best way to find an Invisalign provider is to visit Doctor Locator.

Have you or someone  you’ve known used Invisalign?  And if so, what was their experience?  I look forward to reading your comments on the subject.
