Your teenager is getting ready to graduate high school and you still don’t know what to get him or her as a gift. Why not give them something that they will be able to enjoy for the rest of their lives.
If your teen has crooked teeth that makes him or her feel self-conscious about smiling, do something about it. It is never too late to get them proper orthodontic treatment and with Invisalign® clear aligners, they won’t have to feel embarrassed about a mouth full of metal. Here are some reasons why Invisalign® is the best graduation gift for your high school grad:
Improves oral health
After high school, your teen will most likely be flying the coop heading to college or starting to work and you probably won’t be able to monitor their health as closely anymore. The most common problems Invisalign® braces are used to treat include gapped teeth, an overbite, underbite or an open bite.
Less of a hassle to wear
While orthodontic treatment doesn’t sound like something your teen will be excited about, they will love the promise of a more beautiful smile when it is done, and by choosing Invisalign® the process will be less arduous than it is with traditional metal braces.
Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® clear braces are almost invisible inside the mouth. With Invisalign®, your teen won’t have to worry about food getting stuck in the braces. Invisalign® is easy to remove and are more comfortable to wear. Invisalign® aligners are removable and your teen can easily remove them on their own for short periods of time for eating and drinking and brushing and flossing.
Invisalign® clear aligners are also more comfortable to wear than traditional braces. Invisalign® has a smooth finish so there are no sharp edges and the pressure they apply to the teeth is gentler than traditional braces.
Despite being a gentler process, Invisalign® produces quicker results. Typically, your teen will only have to wear Invisalign® for a year or a year and a half while metal braces are usually worn for 3 years or more.
Probably one of the best reasons to give Invisalign® as a high school graduation gift is that it gives your son or daughter the gift of self-confidence. With a healthier, straighter smile, they will feel more confident as they start a new chapter of their life.
So how does Invisalign® work?
Invisalign® sounds great, right? But you are probably asking yourself how does it really work?
At a consultation, Brit Phillips DDS will use special software to map out a plan for treatment. Then Brit Phillips DDS will perform a complete evaluation to make sure that Invisalign® is the right treatment for your teen. At the beginning of treatment, your teen will be given a new set of aligners to wear every 2 weeks and have a checkup about every 6 weeks.
Taking care of Invisalign® clear braces is also very easy. All your teen will have to do is brush their aligners and rinse them with warm water to clean them.
