When Should Parents Consider Orthodontic Care for Children & Teens?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends the first visit to the orthodontist should come before the age of 7. At this time the first adult molars come in, establishing the  back bite. While treatment may not be needed at the time, it does allow Dr. Suzuki to anticipate the most advantageous time to begin treatment. Early evaulation of a patient helps determine the best treatment to take when it is needed and prevents serious problems that can occur as the patient gets older.

As part of an appropriate orthodontic treatment, Dr. Suzuki may select Align Technologies newest product – Invisalign Teen™ — as the appropriate treatment.

Why Consider Invisalign ® Teen?

  • Removable throughout treatment.
  • Ability to eat and drink what you want.
  • Easier brushing and flossing.
  • No metal and wires.
  • Less time spent at the doctor’s office to adjust your braces.
  • Designed specifically with young people in mind.

What Is Invisalign ® Teen?

Invisalign Teen was designed with young people in mind. It accommodates the growth of secondary molars, has a Blue Dot Wear Indicator (to encourage compliance), and offers up to six, free, individual replacement aligners. Plus there are all the lifestyle benefits. Teens can still play sports as well as wind instruments, eat whatever they want, smile in photos, and brush and floss like they always did. All of that while they’re having their teeth straightened!

Invisalign Teen works in a similar way to braces in that pressures are applied to the teeth with plastic trays to get them to move. It helps correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues. It works on many kinds of conditions  including: crowded teeth, spaced teeth, crossbite, overbite and underbite. In the past, traditional braces were the only option available to treat those conditions. Now Invisalign Teen can help treat these conditions too.

Research indicates that 95% of all teens worry about the appearance of metal braces. One of the reasons they worry is because of pain, but also because of their treatment being noticeable in photos. Because it’s nearly invisible, Invisalign Teen helps teenagers feel confident because they aren’t self-conscious about their treatment. They keep smiling. Also, Invisalign Teen is less likely to cause tooth-and-gum irritation compared to braces.

Invisalign Teen is only offered by Invisalign Accredited Orthodontists like Dr. Suzuki – Serving Kelowna. Get an Invisalign Teen Consultation Now.
