If you have teenagers and find that their teeth are crooked or misaligned, you have many options when it comes to fixing the problem. Adolescence is the best time to treat many orthodontic problems because most of the baby teeth are gone and most of the permanent teeth have come in. This makes it an ideal time to correct problems that may lead to improper tooth spacing, bad bites or poor alignment.
Tooth alignment will not get better with age and it is not an issue that will go away on its own. Orthodontic treatment is required and does more than just improve your teen’s smile. It is also effective at improving oral health and keeping the mouth and gums healthy.
For a long time, traditional braces have been perfect for creating beautiful smiles and straightening crooked teeth. Now, some teenagers are realizing the benefits that come from an advanced treatment option known as Invisalign®.
These are also known as clear braces or clear aligners used to shift the teeth over time. The aligners are changed weekly so you barely even notice your teeth shifting. Perhaps the best part of Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are barely noticeable compared to traditional braces. Other benefits of Invisalign include:
Because there are no wires or metal, Invisalign® is also the more comfortable option. Because each patient is different, it’s important to meet with Dr. Mark Iacobelli and Dr. Stephen Sala to determine if you are a good candidate.
Along with Invisalign®, at Iacobelli & Sala, we offer traditional braces, Bioliners, and Snap-On Smiles. Call our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Iacobelli or Dr. Sala to determine which orthodontic option is best for you. .
