Is Invisalign Teen® right for my child?

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

Straightening your teeth with traditional braces used to be something of a public affair. While traditional teeth-straightening methods yielded high-quality results, it was also essentially impossible to wear them undetected as you went about your day. The visibility of braces could be especially troubling to teens in the high-stress environment of high school and even during the early years of college.

With Invisalign Teen, Dr. Darbro and our team at Darbro Orthodontics will tell you that many of those concerns are no longer as relevant as they once were. Because Invisalign Teen aligners are constructed out of a plastic that is both smooth and clear, in all likelihood friends and family members won’t even realize the teen is wearing them. The smooth and clear plastic also makes the aligners much more comfortable than traditional braces, which means the teenaged user won’t have to deal with something large and obstructive in his or her mouth.

Additionally, the Invisalign Teen aligners are specifically made to be removable when the need arises. Your son or daughter won’t have to worry about getting food stuck in the alignment trays because they can be pulled out before a meal and popped back in afterwards. Invisalign Teen wearers can remove the aligners before brushing, which allows them to make sure their teeth are free and clear of all obstructions.

Invisalign Teen aligners also allow wearers to keep doing all the activities they have previously enjoyed. If your teen plays sports, for example, he or she won’t have to worry about a mouth filled with metal brackets getting injured during play. If your teen plays an instrument, he or she won’t have to worry about traditional braces affecting normal playing techniques. The aligners will remain both comfortable and convenient during all of those activities and more.

If your teen is concerned about physical appearance and worried that braces will adversely affect his or her life for a year or more, Invisalign Teen treatment with Dr. Darbro is definitely the right choice. Teens don’t have to be shy about their smile, won’t have to change any of the activities they normally do, and will still get all the benefits of straight teeth when the process is completed.

Dr. Darbro and our team at Darbro Orthodontics are excited to announce that we now offer our patients the Cadent iOC digital impression system, which will make our patients’ journey to a dazzling smile better than ever!

This new state-of-the-art digital scanning system is designed to create 3D images of your teeth and get accurate digital impressions of teeth and gums in minutes. The scan will give us a precise model of the teeth, and thus eliminate the need to take impressions, which also cuts the goop, gagging, and discomfort typically associated with the traditional impression method. Aside from being capable of mapping your mouth so precisely, the procedure performed at our Greenwood office is reliable, comfortable, and safe.

At Darbro Orthodontics, we are committed to making sure that our patients receive the most advanced treatments possible.  Our patients love this new system because they get to instantly see the three-dimensional model of their teeth surfaces and gums on the computer screen.

Orthodontics has gone 3D at Darbro Orthodontics! Dr. Darbro and our team are proud to offer our patients the Cadent iOC digital impression system, which digitally captures the contours of your teeth, providing an accurate, goop-free digital orthodontic scan in just minutes.

The iOC scanner system, powered by iTero technology, eliminates the goop, gagging, and discomfort typically associated with the traditional impression method. The digital impression procedure ensures a more comfortable experience for the patient and produces a more precise scan for Dr. Darbro. What’s more, the scanner uses visible light, so you won’t have any exposure to radiation during the procedure.
