My teen was 14 when we discovered he needed braces. He was devastated! He didn’t want to go to high school with glasses AND braces. It was high school suicide and would ruin his rep he said. He refused and no matter how I cajoled would not relent to the metal braces.
Fast forward to his 15th birthday, he was now begging me to get him braces but not just any braces… they had to be Invisalign Teen.
Since I didn’t know too much about Invisalign, I did some research. What I discovered convinced me that these were the best! They would not only give him beautiful teeth, they would also ensure he was not teased while wearing them and save his “rep”.
Invisalign Teen braces are different from traditional metal braces. Unlike regular braces, they are don’t hurt, are removable and are practically invisible. They’re a series of custom made clear aligners, that gently nudge the teeth into the proper position. They can even be fitted before all their baby teeth have fallen out!
Since the aligners only need to be worn for about 20-22 hours a day, they can be removed for eating, brushing, flossing, to play sports or go to special events, like the prom. The Invisalign braces also have an indicator to let you know if they are being worn correctly. The indicator called the Blue Dot Wear Indicator fades to clear over a two-week period, when worn properly.
The Invisalign Teen costs about the same as traditional and other clear braces, and is covered by most types of health insurance. I’ve checked my plan and the difference is minimal. Also, most doctors offer financing options. I also have great news for my New York readers, Dr. Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling is offering a $500 Invisalign Discount at any of her three New York Offices. You only need to mention that you read about it on “Latina On a Mission” and she will honor the discount!
Since I want to give my teen everything he needs when he leaves the nest, I plan on making my teen’s appointment soon. The Invisalign treatment takes about a year so I’m confident that he will be off to college with a great smile and a confident attitude!
