5 Reasons Invisalign Is a Great Choice for Athletic Teens

Are you raising a teenager who plays sports competitively? If so, you probably take great pride in watching your child compete. It doesn’t matter if your teen scores the winning goal, makes an awe-inspiring defensive play or warms the bench.

That can be difficult for some kids, particularly those who have a smile that’s less than perfect.

Treating Gap Teeth with Invisalign

It’s common knowledge that smiling provides some meaningful benefits. Smiling can alleviate stress and improve your mood, for example. If you’re unhappy with your smile, you may be missing out on those benefits. In fact, your smile may be a source of stress rather than stress relief. Just as alarmingly, your smile may negatively impact your self-esteem as well as your self-confidence. If you work with people face-to-face, your smile may have an undesired influence on your career, too. There’s no reason for you not to enjoy the benefits of smiling. And there’s certainly no reason for your smile – perfect, imperfect or otherwise – to negatively influence any aspect of your life. Thanks to Invisalign, there’s now a way to fix a smile you’re unhappy with in a non-invasive way that’s not overly obvious to onlookers. […]

How Are Invisalign Clear Aligners Made?

For some people, hiding their smile is a way of life. When they do smile, those individuals often do everything they can to ensure their lips stay together so their teeth remain unexposed. Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, it’s a tough choice. Do you continue to hide your smile or should you talk to your dentist about treatment options to fix your crooked teeth? If you go the latter route, you may already be dreading the inevitable referral to an orthodontist and the subsequent metal braces you’re sure to get. Rather than dreading what’s to come, you should look forward to meeting with an Invisalign-approved orthodontist or dentist. Invisalign for adults and teens has transformed the way trained medical professionals are able to “correct” imperfect smiles without the invasiveness, obviousness or inconvenience of traditional braces.
