metal braces alternative

Does the thought of metal braces have your teen avoiding them?

Is the thought of wearing metal braces preventing your teen from pursuing teeth straightening solutions? When you choose Padden Dental, a specialist in cosmetic dentistry in Vancouver, there is no need for your teen to feel self-conscious about wearing unattractive metal braces.

With Invisalign, we are able to offer a flexible teeth straightening solution that is virtually invisible!

The awkwardness that frequently comes along with the teenage years is already hard as it is, so there is no need to attach the “brace face” nickname to this important period in your teen’s life. Invisalign uses clear removable aligners to straighten teeth, so no one needs to know your teen is undergoing treatment.

Since the aligners can be removed, your teen can still enjoy his favorite foods without having to worry about breaking wires or brackets. Also, if your teen plays high contact sports, he does not need to be concerned about damaging metal braces with this teeth straightening solution.

With Invisalign, your teen will wear a set of custom aligners for approximately 2 weeks. The aligners will have color changing indicators to help keep you on track with your treatment and alert you of when you need to change to a new set. Each week, the teeth will move slightly to eventually reach your end-of-treatment goal.

For the best results, these aligners should be worn at least 20 hours a day. Typically, treatment using Invisalign takes about a year to achieve the best results.
