If the idea of wearing braces to the homecoming dance causes your stomach to drop, you’re not alone. Many teens want a straight and beautiful smile without the hassle wearing bulky metal braces. The good news is that Invisalign in Jacksonville can straighten your teeth without anyone ever realizing you’re having orthodontic treatment. Dr. Scott Wagner at Eccella is your premiere Invisalign provider for teens, and he can help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of without braces!
What is Invisalign?
Instead of using traditional metal braces, Invisalign utilizes clear plastic aligners that are designed to apply gentle pressure to move teeth gradually. Aligners need to be worn at least 22 hours per day, but can easily be removed for brushing and eating. Every two weeks you’ll receive a new set of aligners, and most Invisalign cases can be completed in 12-18 months.
What are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Besides the fact that you’re achieving a straighter smile without anyone noticing your treatment, Invisalign offers a number of other benefits for teenage patients. Because aligners can be removed that means there are no food restrictions during treatment as there would be with traditional braces. It also means that your home care routine won’t change, making you less susceptible to tooth decay and cavities.
Taking care of your aligners is also quick and easy. They can be brushed at night when you brush your teeth, and rinsed with lukewarm water, and that’s all you’ll need to do take care of them. Invisalign is the perfect options for busy teens who are concerned about the appearance of traditional braces.
Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?
Dr. Wagner can determine if Invisalign is right for your needs with a thorough examination, photos, and x-rays. He’ll use 3D imaging to create your treatment plan and you’ll even be able to see what your smile will look like when treatment is completed before you ever start your Invisalign treatment. The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Wagner.
