If you have a teenager at home, you know how hard it is to get them to listen to your advice.
So if they hate their crooked teeth but are too embarrassed to consider braces, you might feel powerless to help them.
It can be so heartbreaking to watch them suffer from crippling insecurity over something that’s so easily fixed. But we adults have the advantage of experience and wisdom, knowing that short-term sacrifices will pay off in the long run. That’s little comfort to teens because they exist in the tiny, often unfriendly, bubble of high school, and it’s tough for them to think beyond the here and now.
Let our team at Northwest Dental Group help you out a little bit!
We’re giving you a last-minute gift idea that can’t be bought, wrapped, and placed under the tree. You could give them a straight, confident smile without forcing them to wear metal braces when you surprise them this Christmas with the promise of an Invisalign consultation in Rochester, MN!
Your Teen Will Love Invisalign!
We talk all the time about the Invisalign advantage for adults, especially professionals who are concerned about changing their appearance as they undergo orthodontic treatment.
But this innovative alternative is just as beneficial to teens!
Teenagers are under so much pressure to fit in, now more than ever, thanks to the role social media plays in their daily lives. If they waited beyond the socially-acceptable age to get braces, usually during middle school for many of their peers, then they’re likely to resist orthodontics now that they’re in high school.
There’s great news your teen needs to hear! It’s not too late to start Invisalign now because it works faster than standard braces. Patients usually see results in about a year.
But that’s not even the best part. Unless your child tells any of their friends that he or she is wearing them, they won’t even notice the nearly invisible aligners!
This makes a big difference for teenagers because much of their reluctance to get braces has to do with their fear of looking, at least to their friends, like an awkward little kid.
Another advantage is how easy Invisalign is to follow and get used to, especially since you can take your aligners out to brush, floss, and eat. With school, homework, and extra-curricular activities, your teen will love not having to change their routine, habits, or lifestyle while they get closer and closer to the straight teeth and beautiful smile they’ve always wanted.
