This is a sponsored post for Invisalign. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Both my husband and I had braces, so there is a pretty good chance that one of our children are going to need them as well.
Since I like to be prepared for the future pre-teen and teenage years, I want to know what my options are for correcting my children’s Orthodontic issues.
Of course as I thought back to my own awkward adolescence and braces, I remember the Orthodontist telling me, now you can’t chew gum, eat steak, and you really want to avoided tough foods. I also recall the metal rubbing up against my mouth, wires popping, and brackets falling off. This made for a few inconvenient additional visits to the office that required my parents to take tome off from work.
Well I guess this is something I have to look forward to for my kids? WRONG, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Here are 4 things I learned, and what Parents of Teens Need To Know About Invisalign!
1. Invisalign is just as effective as traditional wire and bracket braces and can correct the most common teeth straightening issues. Visit What is Invisalign to see how it works.
2. Since Invisalign is removable, there is no need for food restrictions. That makes for a happy Teenager and Parents preparing meals.
3. Because there is no metal equipment, there won’t be any surprise visits due to metal pieces popping up or brackets falling out. As an added benefit, the treatments requires less visits than traditional braces. I am sold already by the time-saving.
4. Invisalign costs about the same as braces. Also, it is covered by most insurance plans up to 50%, and Flexible Spending Health Savings Accounts (HSA’s) can be used as well, making money go farther with pre-tax dollars. This makes the cost of braces a lot easier to handle.
Now keep in mind not all offices offer this service, so please visit Invisalign Providers to find a doctor nearby. There they can provide a Smile Assessment to find out if Invisalign is right for your child.
