Today, teens and even younger children feel a lot of pressure regarding their appearance. Right or wrong, it’s something they deal with every day. A smile is one of the first things you notice about a person… a notion that isn’t lost on this generation. When a teen is self-conscious about their smile it can affect their social life, home life and their confidence.

The metal braces alternative
That’s why the introduction of Invisalign® has had such a positive effect on so many people. Invisalign overcomes many of the issues that makes getting braces a challenge. One of the primary concerns people have about getting braces is the aesthetic impact of the metalwork on their smile. Wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. Invisalign® corrects the same dental problems as traditional metal braces; the only difference is that Invisalign® trays are almost invisible to the naked eye and can be removed at will.

Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligning trays.  The dentist changes the trays every several weeks to fit the new tooth configuration.  You can typically see visual progress being made between appointments. Teens also love the fact that Invisalign® trays can be temporarily removed for important occasions – like a prom or family event. And because Invisalign® can be removed anytime, they can continue to eat the foods they enjoy. It’s designed for minimal interruption to their busy lifestyle.

Invisalign® has revolutionized orthodontics because it’s the most comfortable, convenient way to a perfect, straight smile. Not only do they straighten teeth fast, they can correct many issues including; overcrowding of teeth, large gaps between teeth, overbite, underbite and crossbite.

Boost their confidence
The numbers speak for themselves. Teens with
Invisalign® are twice as likely to experience a boost in self-esteem than those wearing traditional braces. Teens can also shape their smiles up to 50% faster with Invisalign®.

At Windsor Dental Center, we are one of only a few select providers to have the iTero scanning unit. The unit allows a patient to see a simulated version of their smile before beginning their Invisalign treatments. Digitally scanning the patient's mouth also eliminates the uncomfortable process of making impressions. This provides better results and a better patient experience.
