Can Invisalign be used in kids? Is Invisalign effective in children? Is Invisalign even required in teens? These are some of the common questions which permeate through a parent’s mind and the answer to all those questions is a big YES!
Through the decades Invisalign has been and is the go-to option for aligning teeth in adults. But why should adults have all the fun? In recent years Invisalign has become popular amongst teenagers owing to the many advantages it offers plus it’s just in vogue to be wearing Invisalign.
In this day and age where looking good and showing off your set of perfect pearly whites on social media has become such a norm, a teen with crooked teeth or gaps between the teeth can end up developing a lot of insecurities and self-esteem issues.
Especially teenagers with buck teeth or forwardly placed teeth are subjected to bullying by their peers which can affect their academic performance and attendance besides long-term mental trauma.
Certain conditions like a smaller lower jaw, crossbites, etc. can be treated effectively when detected at an earlier age.
So, it is imperative that you get your child consulted with an orthodontist so that he or she can give you the best possible solution for your child’s teeth alignment.
