Our children received complementary Invisalign treatment as part of our sponsored partnership with
Align Technology, Inc, the makers of the Invisalign brand. All opinions and thoughts expressed in the post below are our own.
We’re now a little ways into 2019 and it’s a nice time to reflect on what was good about the previous year and what’s already going well for 2019. One thing that has been consistently wonderful has been our families’ InvisalignÆ treatment experiences. The transformation has been incredible and the process of fixing their little teen smiles is happening so quickly! We can truly see the changes taking shape right before our eyes, setting our kids up for an easier dental experience for the rest of their lives, or we hope – for those that haven’t had such luck and you’ve noticed your oral health decline as you age, you might want to look into dental coverage plans for seniors like these compared over at Let’s Say Thanks. Here is a bit more insight into each of the journeys our children have gone through with Invisalign clear aligners.
What a great experience we are having with our InvisalignÆ treatment. We can see a HUGE difference in my daughter’s smile! What an easy process Invisalign treatment has been and continues to be for my kids.
The great thing about having Invisalign clear aligners is that it doesn’t interrupt their lives, and you have a highly trained professional orthodontist working with you every step of the way. And since they’re virtually invisible, it doesn’t get in the way of their performance schedules or stage confidence. My youngest Sydney Rose performed all 25 shows of The Nutcracker this past December without one issue and with big smiles every time. The beauty of Invisalign treatment is that it doesn’t get in the way of all her performing and dance classes. My kids receive several aligners in advance and change them up weekly*. We aren’t running back and forth to the orthodontist for broken brackets or wires popping out. It makes everything so much easier.
We have seen major transformations in my daughters smiles in such a short time and we also have had the peace of mind that my girls can eat whatever they want because the aligners are removable. That is the best news since they both love popcorn and candy. They simply take them out, brush and floss and pop the aligners right back in.
In one short year, we have seen so many changes. One daughter had some spacing issues while my other daughter had more complex issues and Invisalign treatment is working well for both of them! I too have Invisalign treatment and my smile began to shift so quickly. I never loved my smile until now.
I was worried when I went to our orthodontist appointment recently because I had to cancel the previous one and reschedule. You know how life is as a busy mom. But, because my boys are so responsible with their aligners and their Invisalign treatment it all worked out. In fact, they may even finish early because they have not only worn their aligners and been compliant with their treatment, but they actually enjoyed it. My older son’s overbite is now gone, and his teeth are nearly perfect. My younger son’s crowded, crooked mouth is now a big smiling success.
They were able to do this all while continuing their daily lives. All while carrying their case in their backpack and even keeping one in their lunch boxes. They wore them all summer while away at camp without any issues. They wore them during their basketball and baseball games without worrying about broken wires or brackets. I can’t believe the amount of change in such a short time, not only with their smiles but with their sense of responsibility.

*Invisalign clear aligners may provide up to 50% shorter treatment time with weekly aligner changes, compared with two-week aligner wear. Weekly aligner changes are recommended for all Invisalign treatments (with default staging protocol) for Invisalign Full, Invisalign Teen, Invisalign Lite, Invisalign Assist and Invisalign Go products. The decision to prescribe weekly aligner changes is at the doctor’s discretion. Monitor tooth movements such as rotations, extrusions, and significant root movements; particularly blue and black movements in the Tooth Movement Assessment (TMA). Depending on the patient response to treatment, particularly mature adults, consider longer periods between aligner changes.
