Smiling is a Lovely Gesture

Smile Quote No. 40: "A Smile Is Like Tight Underwear: It Makes Your Cheeks Go Up" - Author Unknown

Whether you are the mom who loves to take plenty of photos or simply seeing your kids happy enough to warm your heart, you want to ensure that their smiles are healthy and happy all the days of their life. Working with an orthodontist to understand the benefits of Invisalign allows you to accomplish this goal.

What is Invisalign?

Making an appointment with an orthodontist gives you a look of Invisalign upfront. Invisalign is a type of braces system. However, as the name implies, you cannot actually see the braces. Many adults who did not properly maintain their teeth when they were young choose this method, but you might be interested in these braces for your children as well. Invisalign is an alternative to braces that has helped many people perfect their smiles, but it is not the right option for everyone.

Who Qualifies for Invisalign?

The answer to this question is one of those Invisalign tips that only your orthodontist can answer. Generally, however, children need to have all of their full-grown teeth to qualify for any type of braces. Otherwise, the results of the Invisalign would be counterproductive. Depending on the exact ailment of the mouth and whether or not the braces are fixing, some people might not be eligible for Invisalign either.

What Should I Keep In-Mind?

If you or your child does qualify for Invisalign, you want to weigh the pros and cons of this system and traditional braces. On one hand, your child might feel more confident with Invisalign, but on the other, you may not be able to see as well if he or she is keeping them clean. You also must consider the price and what portion of the cost your dental insurance will cover.

Setting up an appointment with Beecroft Orthodontist will give you answers to your specific questions.

Connection of Science and Love

Smile Quote, Beecroft Orthodontics

Smile Quote No. 38:“Science teaches to think but love teaches to smile.”- Santosh Kalwar

When children won't smile or laugh because someone will make fun of their teeth, it breaks parents' hearts. Science exists to make life better and healthier. Unqualified love brought science into existence to begin with. Orthodontists are schooled in how the placement of the jaw and teeth affect the face and head. Orthodontists know science, but they know about love, too. They want the chance to exercise both for the benefit of the child who wants to smile.

About Teen Teeth:

Teen jaws are still growing. This creates an environment in which many dental conditions could become serious.

  •  Overcrowded teeth are prey to eruptions and infection
  •  Protruding teeth are subject to accidents
  •  Sometimes there is no space for adult teeth to erupt
  •  Malformed jawlines may be trained into order

How Invisalign Works:

X-rays and an impression will be made of the teeth. Depending on the teen and the doctor's views of how the teeth should look, the doctor will send the impression to Invisalign with his recommendations. Invisalign will make a set of aligners to fit the teeth. Each set is worn for two weeks. At this time, the teeth should have moved a few millimeters. The next set will move them still more, and so on until the teeth are aligned the way the teen and doctor wants them. It takes time, but the aligners may only be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Built-in tabs tell the orthodontist if the child is wearing his aligner. A retainer will be worn following treatment to insure the teeth stay straight.

Prices vary depending on location and extent of the work required. Generally, Invisalign costs the same as metal braces, about $5,000. Call Beecroft Orthodontics today for a free consultation.
