Crooked or bucked teeth are so often the bane of teenagers everywhere but the metal braces that have been typically employed to straighten these unruly chompers have also caused no end of angst and youthful embarrassment. The good news is that recent developments in orthodontic technology have resulted in new ways to straighten teeth that result in far less social anxiety!
The Invisible Way to Straighten Teeth
Many of us remember those old metal brackets that were stuck to our teeth and were tightened occasionally. Indeed, many teenage social lives have been almost ruined by such monstrous metal braces that were seemingly manufactured to produce teenage horror stories. Invisalign in Kalamazoo, MI technology represents a brand-new way to arrest unruly teeth without the horror of regular old metal braces.
Where Invisalign differs is that it straightens teeth through the action of a virtually invisible brace that has been custom-made for each person. These clear Invisalign braces are very similar to mouthguards in that they sit over the top of teeth but are also made of a clear surgical-grade plastic. Each new brace that is made is incrementally smaller than the last and straightens teeth over time.
Many dental clinics, such as the one run by Stephanie M Busch – Abbate DDS PLC, have adopted this technology as a fantastic alternative to regular metal braces.
The Real-Life Benefits of Clear Braces
The real beauty of this is that they are far less noticeable than regular metal braces. Given the fragile nature of teenage emotions, this teeth-straightening technology represents a much better experience in that it is less noticeable to their peers, causes less social anxiety, and less loss of self-confidence and self-esteem. What delicate teenager wouldn’t want to wear them over traditional braces?
