But for many young people, the idea of bulky and intrusive braces can turn them away from their important care. If your teen has decided that braces are not for them, thankfully there is another form of orthodontic treatment that can help them to keep their improvement to themselves.

With our team of orthodontic experts in Shirley, NY, your teen can experience a safe and more attractive smile without sharing the process with the entire world. With clear aligner treatment from Invisalign®, they can take steps to shift their teeth along their oral ridge in a safe and effective manner, with just the use of a simple set of aligner trays. As your child reaches nearer to their smile goals, they can simply swap out their trays for a new set and continue their care. These aligner trays are nearly invisible, helping your teen to improve the look of their smile with a bit more privacy than braces allow.

How Invisalign® Clear Aligners Work To Bring Balance To Smiles

Your alignment affects the appearance and function of your smile, and if things are out of balance, it can put extra stress on certain areas of your mouth. In areas that are difficult to thoroughly brush and floss, plaque and tartar bacteria can start to build up, leading to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Invisalign® clear aligners help to improve alignment for both the look and oral health of the patient, and this approach is simple: wear the clear aligner trays throughout the course of the day and start to see results in a matter of weeks, not months.

Invisalign® Aligner Treatment Helps Your Teen To Maintain Privacy

When people decide to ignore their alignment, one of the primary reasons is due to the intrusion of braces on their daily lives. If this sounds like your teen, talk to them about the advantages of Invisalign® clear aligners, which use nearly invisible trays to gently, yet effectively, shift teeth without the need for braces. This method is becoming increasingly popular with teens and adults alike, so ask about your own smile when your child is at the office.
