Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces for many teens in Staten Island. There is a certain aesthetic look that trends within the community and teens hold their appearance in high regard. A beautiful, straight, white smile is everything. Invisalign is removable, comfortable and best of all clear. Many teens are highly sensitive to the way they look, so having this amazing option of clear braces helps many teens feel more comfortable in school, with their peers and in social settings. They no longer have to feel insecure when they are around others.
Braces may be commonly related to the teen years, but braces can be suggested anywhere from pre-teen to adulthood. It is highly recommended to make your child’s first appointment with an orthodontist when their permanent teeth begin to come in, usually around the age of seven. This way preventative actions may be implemented or any overcrowding and uneven bite issues will be easily detected for the orthodontist to map out a future plan for correction.
