3 Ways to Know if Invisalign is Right for Your Teen

At Kleinrock Orthodontics, offering clear aligners is an important treatment option for patients, especially teenagers. When indicated by a trained orthodontist, like Dr. Seth Kleinrock, Invisalign, the leading clear aligner brand, can provide teens with the beautiful straight teeth they’ve always wanted — without braces.

A consultation with an orthodontist is the only way to know for sure whether it’s the appropriate treatment option, but understanding the benefits of Invisalign can help you make a decision as to whether it could be the right fit for your teen:

1.  They’re Completely Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No closed-lipped selfies here! If your teen is self-conscious about his or her appearance in photos, Invisalign could be the right choice.

2. They’re a Confidence Booster: A recent study found that teens wearing Invisalign are twice as likely to experience a boost in self-esteem while in treatment than teens treated with metal braces.

3. They’re Removable & Easy to Clean: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing your teen to eat and drink whatever they’d like while in treatment- and play certain sports more easily.

And here’s a benefit for parents: With Invisalign, there won’t be any brackets to become loose or broken, so there are potentially fewer emergency visits to the orthodontist, and fewer interruptions to your busy schedule with visits every 6 weeks versus every 10 weeks!

At our practice, we strive to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment but also ensure Incredible customer service and make you feel like you’re at home while you’re visiting us.

A Straight Smile Is the Best First Impression

We all know the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, but the reality is: we all do. First impressions are really important and your smile says a lot about you. That’s why at Kleinrock Orthodontics, we care about not only helping our teens but about helping adults as well. A straight smile is crucial to making that first impression count…and metal braces as an adult isn’t necessarily the most desired look. Because of this, we offer Invisalign Adult! The clear alternative to metal braces.

In a recent study* by Invisalign, confirms that “people with straight teeth are perceived more likely to be happy, successful and second date worthy.” Speaking of dating, 55% of respondents said that a straight smile had a better likelihood of attracting potential partners on a dating site by their picture alone.

Already found your partner but still think straighter teeth would have a strong impact on your life? You’re right! 58% of respondents said that they perceive people with straight teeth to be more successful in business and their professional lives. That means a straight smile can be a big component of your interview kit, rocking your next presentation or winning that next sale.

So how does Invisalign Adult work?

During a consultation at Kleinrock Orthodontics, Dr. Kleinrock determines the exact movements necessary to get your teeth into the correct position. Then the Kleinrock team has a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. As you replace each Invisalign aligner with the next in the series, the teeth will gradually and gently shift-little by little, until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Kleinrock has prescribed.

Other than a great first impression once you’ve finished, Invisalign offers a great first impression while you’re working to achieve that great smile:

Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No hiding your smile in meetings, engagement photos or school pick-ups and no closed-lipped selfies here!

Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are extremely comfortable made out of smooth, sleek plastic.

Removable: Don’t want your date to know you’re working on your smile? Take them off for the evening…just remember to put them back in before you go to sleep! It may not seem like it, but they’re constantly working while you go throughout your day.

Convenient: Fewer visits to the orthodontist, meaning fewer interruptions of your busy schedule. You only need to visit us at Kleinrock Orthodontics about once every 2-3 months to ensure that your treatment progress is on track.

Cost Effective: At Kleinrock Orthodontics, Invisalign comes at the same price tag as traditional braces. No need to shell out extra cash to avoid metal mouth. Plus we can offer little to no down payment.
