Welcome to the first July installment of the Greenstein Dental blog!

We hope that your 4th of July will be full of family fun!

We are all about family around here. Our leader, Dr. Greenstein, grew up around the day to day activities of a dental office, and he worked alongside his father, also a dentist, for nine years before starting his own practice. As such, we make it our mission to help the families of Miami, Florida get the best dental care around and the personal they deserve, but without any of the unnecessary hassles. That is to say, we always try to find the easiest solution to your problems.

If your family includes anyone approaching adolescence, we know that can be a challenging time for a variety of reasons.

But if your teenager has any annoying orthodontic issues (like gaps, overcrowding, or crookedness), we can help straighten things out in a much more dignified manner than those clunky metal braces their friends may have been subjected to. We can make their transformation happen with a program called Invisalign.

Invisalign Makes Teens Smile

We can’t say enough good things about Invisalign.

Your teen will love that Invisalign won’t have any impact on their appearance during treatment or draw unwanted attention. That’s because this method does not require any clunky metal brackets or wires! These braces are invisible!

Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign uses transparent, lightweight aligners made of plastic. These fit snugly over the teeth and are custom-built using advanced imagery to ensure a comfortable fit. The aligners gradually guide your teeth into the more preferred position in small increments, until it’s time to change aligners every two weeks or so.

There will be no in-office hardware adjustments, or wires to break or poke you in the soft tissues at the back of your mouth. Your teen will simply pop in the new aligners when appropriate, and they will go on with their day.

Another reason your teen will love Invisalign is that maintenance of the aligners couldn’t be any easier. Special brushes and tools that you need to keep old-school braces clean won’t be necessary. For cleaning, you just remove the aligners and rinse them under water!

Since they’re removable, your teenager will have the ability to continue eating whatever their growing body demands without any restrictions. You won’t have to shop for foods that don’t get trapped in metal (remember, no metal!).

By the time we are finished, in only about 12 months, the results will be just as gorgeous as a traditional orthodontic treatment would deliver, but it won’t involve as much time or as many hassles.

To summarize, Invisalign is a subtle, safe, quick and effective treatment. What more could you ask for in an orthodontic program for your teen? There is also a compliance meter to help you protect your investment and provide accountability for your son or daughter.

We hope you have been inspired by today’s post to look into an easier way for your teen to improve the health and appearance of their smile!

Fair warning: Invisalign isn’t for everyone. Patients who suffer from more severe bite issues or impacted teeth will likely need traditional orthodontic care. To ensure that Invisalign is right for your teen, Dr. Greenstein and the rest of our team will first evaluate your teen’s smile to determine the orthodontic treatment that makes the most sense for your family.
