Why We Chose Invisalign® Treatment
As a mom, I know just how important it is for kids to have self-confidence. And having self-confidence starts with your smile! My daughter was fitted with her Invisalign® clear aligners three months ago. So today I thought I would give you an update about her overall experience thus far. You might have seen this post where I discussed why we chose Invisalign® clear aligners for her. As an active teenager, there is never a dull moment in her life. And having an orthodontic treatment that works for her lifestyle is really important to us. Invisalign® clear aligners help to accomplish this goal with ease. And because Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible she can always feel and look her best.
Invisalign® Aligners are Great for Active Teens and Tweens
Sarah is one busy lady! In addition to her school work, she in on a competitive travel ice-skating team, she plays team sports at school, and she plays the French horn. Ice skating is her passion, and she is gearing up for the busy competition season. This means she has practice 3-4 times per week (15 hours/week). When she trains this inevitably she will have some falls, which can lead to bumps and bruises. I remember once she fell flat on her chin at practice, and that led to a trip to the ER. Can you imagine what would have happened with traditional braces? Wit her Invisalign® clear aligners, we don’t have to worry about broken brackets or wires. She loves having her Invisalign® treatment as it gives her the flexibility and focus she needs to train all while transforming her smile 2x faster*!

Invisalign® Clear Aligners Are Easy To Maintain
I remember when I had traditional braces how hard it was to keep my teeth clean. I had to use a special flosser, and forget about chewing gum or eating tomato sauce. With Invisalign® clear aligners she has to wear them at least 20-22 hours a day. But this allows for time to take them out when eating, and that means there are no food restrictions! And she can take them out when she brushes and flosses, which means keeping her teeth clean is so much easier.
She also notices a lot less discomfort with Invisalign® clear aligners compared to traditional braces. She changes her aligners weekly*, which means there is a gradual process for moving her teeth. She notices no pain at all when she changes her aligners!
*Frequency of aligner changes are set by your Invisalign® provider.
The Invisalign® Treatment Difference
Simply put, Invisalign® treatment works, and that is why we are doing it. The Invisalign® system is the most advanced clear aligner system available today anywhere. Over 20 years of innovation and 6 million+ smiles have enabled Invisalign® treatment to correct simple to complex orthodontic cases. We work directly with our orthodontist, so I know she is getting a hands-on experience. And if you are concerned about cost, it is often comparable to traditional braces.
