Invisalign For Kids

Embracing Invisalign A Modern Solution for Kids

As children grow, several dental issues can surface that affect their overall oral health. These include crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, and other misalignments. If left untreated, these problems can escalate into more serious oral health issues. That’s where Invisalign comes in as a modern, effective solution.

Invisalign offers a virtually invisible method to correct dental issues, providing a less intrusive alternative to traditional braces. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, making them far more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. This can significantly improve a child’s confidence and quality of life, allowing them to smile without hesitation.

Family support is crucial when a child undergoes Invisalign treatment. Parents play a vital role in reminding their child about wearing the aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours per day and changing to a new set of aligners every week or two, as prescribed by the orthodontist. Regular check-ups at ARCH Orthodontics ensure the treatment is progressing as planned.

Caring for Invisalign Tips for Parents

Maintaining the aligners is straightforward, but it’s essential to establish a routine. Teaching your child to clean the aligners daily using a toothbrush with soft bristles and non-abrasive toothpaste will help keep them clear and odor-free. It’s also important to remind your child to remove the aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water, to prevent staining or damage.

Invisalign aligners are durable, but they’re not indestructible. We recommend that parents provide a special case for their child to store the aligners when not in use, reducing the risk of them being lost or accidentally thrown away.

Choosing Invisalign for your child means choosing a path towards a healthier, happier smile. At ARCH Orthodontics, we’re here to guide you and your child through this journey, offering professional care and advice every step of the way. Let’s work together to create beautiful smiles, one child at a time.

Invisalign For Teens

Why Choose ARCH for Invisalign Teen?

ARCH Orthodontics is a Certified Gold Plus Invisalign Provider, and we are excited to offer this clear option to our patients. Invisalign is a nearly invisible method of creating a straight smile. Invisalign Teen is available for adolescent patients, who may feel self-conscious about wearing more traditional metal braces.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is growing in popularity as a teeth straightening option amongst teens. The best part it’s a very easy process!

Your ARCH orthodontist will create a personalized treatment plan by taking a 3D scan of your teeth and creating a series of clear aligners for the process. Once you’ve cleared fittings, you’re all set to start wearing your aligners! You’ll have regular checkups with your orthodontist to check your progress and receive additional aligners. Once your treatment plan is finished, you can show off your new beautiful smile!

Offering Options for Everyone’s Smile!

These clear aligners are so “invisible” that your friends won’t even know that you’re wearing them. They’re also completely removable, so there are no limits as far as eating or drinking (even popcorn!), and teens can brush and floss their teeth just as they normally would. The aligners can also be removed for playing sports or musical instruments, where traditional metal braces might get in the way.

Invisalign Teen is great for closing a gap between teeth, correcting an under or overbite, or balancing out overly crowded teeth gently and effectively.

Invisalign For Adults

In a world where first impressions matter, having a confident smile can make all the difference. At ARCH Orthodontics, we understand that as an adult, you might be looking for a teeth-straightening solution that’s both effective and discreet. That’s why we proudly offer Invisalign a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that aligns your teeth without disrupting your lifestyle.

Invisalign is not just about aesthetics; it’s a practical solution to various dental issues such as crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, and gapped teeth. By addressing these problems, Invisalign not only enhances your smile but also contributes to your overall oral health.

The Invisalign Journey

Your journey to a more beautiful smile begins with a consultation at one of our offices. Our experienced orthodontists will evaluate your teeth and discuss your goals to determine if Invisalign is the right choice for you. If you’re a suitable candidate, we’ll take a digital scan of your teeth to create your personalized treatment plan.

Using cutting-edge technology, we’ll show you a digital roadmap of your entire treatment process, including a preview of your future smile. Once your custom aligners are ready, you’ll wear each set for about one to two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

Throughout your treatment, you’ll have regular check-ups with us to monitor your progress. These appointments are crucial in ensuring your treatment is on track and your smile is shaping up as planned.

Caring for Your Invisalign Aligners

Taking care of your Invisalign aligners is straightforward. It involves cleaning them daily to keep them clear and odor-free. Always remember to rinse your aligners when you remove them and brush them gently with a soft toothbrush. Avoid using harsh cleaning agents as they can damage the aligners or cause discoloration.

Finally, always remember to store your aligners in their case when not in use. This simple step can prevent accidental damage and help maintain the longevity of your aligners.

At ARCH Orthodontics, we’re committed to helping you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted with Invisalign. Request your free consultation today and begin your journey toward a healthier, more confident smile.
