Straight teeth are attractive, of course, but the benefits of straight teeth go beyond an appealing smile – they can also contribute to your oral health and overall health. If you are like many people, though, you don’t want to wear braces; this is especially true for teenagers who don’t want to be bothered with the hassles of wearing braces. Fortunately, there is a way to get all the benefits of teeth straightening without braces.
Many adults wonder, “am I too old for braces?” The answer is, no! When it comes to getting a straight smile, any age is the right age. Though getting braces is often something people associate as a rite of passage for teenagers, there is no age limit to achieving a straight smile.
As a loving parent or guardian, part of taking care of your child should involve ensuring that their dental health is in tip-top condition. You need to ensure that your child practices excellent dental hygiene, take them to see a dentist twice annually, and also take them to see an orthodontist for an orthodontic evaluation.
While traditional metal braces can look and feel noticeable and bulky, and can be challenging to manage, Invisalign® aligners offer a more comfortable and aesthetic orthodontic treatment option. Invisalign clear braces are quickly becoming a more popular alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign® can make you or your teenager feel confident while aligning teeth to form a beautiful, straight smile.
