The Benefits of Invisalign Teen

Southampton Orthodontic Centre – The Benefits of Invisalign Teen

There are all sorts of reasons why people may feel they need braces. It might be that their teeth are overcrowded or wonky or that there are gaps that need addressing. If you feel that your teeth are not as straight as you’d like them; we would advise that you visit your dentist to discuss your options.

Here at the Southampton Orthodontic Centre, we are proud to offer a vast range of teeth straightening options, including metal braces, ceramic braces and Incognito braces. We are also delighted to be offering Invisalign and Invisalign Teen at the centre.

Here we focus on Invisalign Teen. It involves wearing a series of custom-made clear aligners that simply fit over your teeth. There is no need for wires and brackets, which can sometimes be painful or uncomfortable.

The clear aligners are virtually invisible, so they are doing the hard work of straightening your teeth very discreetly. They fit snugly over the teeth and are clinically proven to improve control of tooth movement, moving your teeth gently into place and can also rotate them if necessary.

You can also remove the clear aligners for brushing and flossing, meaning you can still get to all those hard to reach places, which is sometimes difficult with traditional metal braces and brackets.

Straighter teeth don’t only look great, they are also less susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease as it is easier to maintain good oral health with straighter teeth. Therefore, investing in a straighter smile whilst you are a teenager may even minimise the chances of you needing expensive dental work in the future.

The Invisalign aligners are trimmed to your exact gum line, so they are tailor-made to fit comfortably so that you are able to wear them for the recommended 22 hours a day with little disruption.

After you start wearing your clear Invisalign Teen aligners, it won’t be long until you start to notice a big difference in your smile. There is a ‘My Invisalign Smile’ app, which enables you to record your orthodontic journey and compare your teeth straightening progress every time you change an aligner.

The Southampton Orthodontic Centre been established for 15 years. We are happy to provide a consultation and offer advice regarding teeth straightening. It is important to note only orthodontists that have been trained and certified by Invisalign, such as our centre’s Dr Rupinder K Sidhu can offer this treatment to you.
