Teenagers love their social media. Now more than ever before, it has become increasingly important for teens to take care of their personal image in order for them to take the perfect ‘selfie’. We at Elegance Dental understand how easily teens can become embarrassed, which is why we offer Invisalign in Hertfordshire to this younger generation in order to help them achieve their picture perfect smile.
Bye Bye Baby Teeth
By the time a child reaches adolescence, they would have lost most, if not all, of their baby teeth.
Once the permanent adult teeth have erupted, they are often out of alignment and can look crooked in the mouth. This is because whilst the teeth are forming, the jawbone is also still growing. This stage of growth is actually an ideal time to begin orthodontic treatment, as the jaw growth aids the alignment of the teeth, allowing them to move into position quicker.
Invisalign for Teens
Most teens are concerned about their personal image and want to fit in amongst their peers. So having a mouth full of metal braces isn’t always on trend with what the younger generation deem as ‘cool’. This treatment, regardless of how effective it is, can make teens feel self
conscious and draw unwanted attention to their teeth.
With the Invisalign aligners being almost invisible, and most treatment taking only a matter of months, Invisalign Hertfordshire has become increasingly popular amongst teenagers and young adults.
How it works
Invisalign is the most advanced orthodontic treatment on the market and not only will it guide your teen’s teeth into place over a short period of time, but it will also fix any issues they may be having with their bite too. At a consultation appointment for Invisalign Hertfordshire, we will take a digital scan of the teeth and jaw thus allowing a computer to create a 3D model for us to work with, which means no gooey mould you have to convince your child to bite into. The scan is painless and once we have the information on the computer we can create a simulation to see how the teeth will look after treatment. Once this is all done the information is sent off to a lab where they create the set of custom clear aligners that your child will wear. The beauty of creating a full set of aligners is that you won’t have to cart them to the dentist every other week as you will have the full set at home for them to change when they need to.
