We hope that your Spring is off to a great start, and if you have been out to the track, we hope you’ve had big fun. And here’s one thing that we want you to know in regards to your oral health: our Lexington, KY dentist’s office wants to make it easy for you and your family to straighten out any annoying (and unhealthy) orthodontic issues that may be bothering you. This means that if you are the parent of a teenager, you have other orthodontic options to consider besides classic metal braces, and if you are an adult with a less than perfect look, there’s still time to improve your situation with Invisalign! This method relies on a series of clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners to discreetly straighten out misaligned teeth without drawing unwanted attention to your mouth while it is a work in progress! The whole process is mapped out in advance and carried out in easily managed phases. We are confident that the benefits of Invisalign, will become immediately clear to you (and your son or daughter).

Your Lifestyle Doesn’t Have To Change
Unlike old-school braces, with Invisalign, you get to switch your aligners out at home every two weeks or so. That’s all it takes to keep the process heading in the right direction. Because there won’t be any mandatory monthly in-office adjustments, Invisalign doesn’t feel like it is eating away at your free-time in the same way that a typical orthodontic treatment would.
Remember: once metal braces are installed in your mouth, they would have be there for the duration of your treatment, which could lasts 2-3 years. There won’t be any breaks! Invisalign aligners, by contrast, are made to be removed whenever you find it necessary to do just that.
Because you can take them out while you are eating, they won’t trap food particles like metal braces. As such, you won’t have to avoid the foods that you love. Plus, you won’t need special tools for cleaning, which brings us to our next perk!
Invisalign Gear Is Easy To Care For
Teens and adults alike will love how easy it is to keep your mouth fresh and clean with Invisalign. All you have to do is remove your clear braces, rinse them under lukewarm water, and pop them back in when you are through. What’s more, you can also keep brushing and flossing your teeth just like you always have. Simple enough, right?
Accountability Is Built In
If you are considering Invisalign for your teen, rather than yourself, you will have special concerns. We can certainly appreciate that orthodontic treatment is a significant investment of your time and money. We also know how absent minded teenagers can be sometimes! That said, everyone involved wants the treatment to be a big success. That’s why Invisalign has come equipped with a special feature to allow you to hold your teen accountable for following the directions properly.
Yep, there is actually a built-in monitoring system to make sure the treatment keeps moving forward without any interruptions.
Rather than spying on them or nagging them about following through, all you have to do is check their equipment. Here’s how it works: when the aligners are worn properly, a small blue dot on the back of the aligners will slowly disappear. This will let you know that everything is still on track.
A Fast Fix
If you are deemed to be a good candidate, Invisalign will change your life. And it is able to work its magic in a fraction of the time that conventional braces would take to deliver the same great results.
The treatment timetable all depends on the severity of the issues that we are working to resolve. That said, Invisalign usually wraps up in about a year, which is much better than the 2-3 years old-style braces would necessitate.
When we are finished with you, you will most likely be amazed by the results. The health and appearance of your smile (or your teen’s smile) will be better than ever before!
