Orthodontics for Kids
There’s no exact time for your kids to start visiting the orthodontist, but age 7 is about the latest you want to go. Keep in mind that much of what happens to your teeth goes on below the surface. Just because your child’s teeth look straight and even doesn’t mean there aren’t hidden issues or potential problems down the line.
When you start your kids with Orthodontics sooner, you can avoid more intensive and costly treatment in the future. That’s why it’s so important to have a professional Orthodontist examine and evaluate your children’s teeth-the earlier the better. It’s better for the whole family to avoid costly procedures-for the kid’s sake and your wallets!
Invisalign for Teenagers
Teenagers are embracing Invisalign treatment more than ever. They are clear aligners, so you can have the benefit of effective orthodontic treatment without the use of chunky metal braces. In this day and age of selfies and social media, teens prefer the subtly of Invisalign over metal braces.
Invisalign isn’t right for every teen. Some cases may be too complicated and require braces-that is something to be determined by you and your orthodontist.
For teenagers who do use Invisalign, compliance is very important. The aligners only work when you wear them-up to 23 hours a day. They can be removed for eating and cleaning, a bonus, but the temptation to leave them out may be too strong for some. If your child is fairly disciplined, and determined to succeed in his or her treatment, Invisalign may be a great option.
Invisalign for Adults
Kids and teens aren’t the only ones who can benefit from orthodontic care! Adult orthodontics is on the rise. With the advent of Invisalign aligners more adults than ever are seeking out orthodontic care-and not just for vanity purposes.
When your teeth are straight and even, and in their proper alignment, the entire structure of your jaw works better. Crooked teeth can lead to more serious issues. When you chew food with crooked teeth, for example, there will be more wear and tear. This wear and tear can develop into cracks and breakages that will require much more intensive and costly treatment in the future.
As you get older, your teeth start to shift around. Orthodontic treatment can ensure that any changes in the structure of your mouth is observed and properly remedied. A bright smile does a lot to slow down the aging process, and orthodontics is key to that great smile!
