My oldest son will be 12 soon and has nearly lost all of his baby teeth. One thing that the dentist has mentioned on his last few visits is that we will have to be referred to an orthodontist soon because he is in need of braces. The idea of my son getting braces scares me because when I was younger I did not need them so I have zero experience with them. But I had many friends who had them and would tell horror stories about being picked on and having to deal with the awkwardnes of braces. So when I had the recent opportunity to learn about Invisalign I jumped at it.
Since I still have a few months according to the dentist before he loses his final baby teeth it gives me the time to arm myself with all of the information that I need. I like the thought of Invisalign Teen because the aligners are invisible and they will be easy for my son to use.
And in addition to the aligners being clear so my son won’t have to be self conscious about them, he can also remove them when he eats and brushes his teeth so that he can still take great care of his teeth. Which I love so that means he has less chance of cavities. I also like that with Invisalign that in most cases they do not take as long as braces to straighten teeth.
My son is really not looking forward to the possibility of having to get braces so I think that the Invisalign will be a great choice for him. Now I see him trying to talk me into getting him contacts soon after.
