When I was in elementary school, I knew so many people who had Braces…. And it always seemed like it was the COOL kids who were sporting them. They were able to change out the colors of their bands depending on the holidays. It may sound wrong to say, but back then I was slightly jealous of those who needed braces…. But braces weren’t all fun and glory. As I reached Junior High, My cousin ended up getting braces. He was a clarinet player like myself… But had to give that up and change instruments because of the mouth plate he had along with his braces. And then going Trick or Treating with the other cousins… We were all excited when we got back to grandmas house to be able to go through and pick out our favorite candies – and have one or two… And there’s my cousin, having to pick out half of his goodies because he couldn’t eat them. That’s when I realized, they weren’t everything that I thought they’d be. And I was thankful, that my teeth were straight enough that Braces weren’t brought up.
Now fast forward a handful of years. Now I have to think about the health of my children’s teeth. I took Lil C to the dentist for his yearly exam – and I did question my dentist about his teeth – because they are So Gappy right now. And I was told, that as long as his teeth continue to grow in normally, he wont need any. Then there’s my soon to be step-daughter, lil Miss. She’s already gotten most all of her adult teeth- and she was recently told that it was recommended that she get braces. After remembering what my cousin went through, I have been talking to my fiancee about possible options for her. From what I have been told by a few who’ve worn braces, they are not the most comfortable things especially when it comes to being adjusted. And that’s when I was invited to learn about Invisalign. And Learned that the Invisalign Teen would be a great possibility for her.A little about Invisalign: Invisalign’s treatment capabilities are not limited to mild cosmetic cases. Due to many advances in its proprietary
technology, Invisalign can effectively correct a broad range of more complex cases such as: overly crowded teeth, widely spaced teeth, open bite, crossbite, overbite and underbite. Visit the Invisalign website to learn about all of the dental issues Invisalign can treat. Among the new advances in orthodontia, removable aligners, like Invisalign & Invisalign Teen, are fast becoming a popular choice. The system uses a series of clear aligners made of lightweight plastic that sit smoothly on the teeth allowing for a more comfortable fit and they work as effectively as traditional metal braces.
Both my fiancee and I have talked a lot about Invisalign Teen. It would be a GREAT alternative to the traditional metal Braces. The Invasalign aligners can be removed – so Lil Miss would still be able to eat, brush and floss like she normally would. She would be able to eat the foods – and snacks that lil C is able to eat – and wont have to feel like she is left out. Also, She’s at the Awkward age in life. Being a pre-teen, shes very easily hurt by mean-spirited comments. With Invisalign, she would be able to smile confidently – because it is almost invisible. So our next steps, to go to a dentist that specializes in Invisalign, and see if she will qualify. She will need to have all her adult teeth in to be able to use Invisalign.
