Teen Teeth Straightening When Your Schedule Is Already Full
I’m so excited to share more about Invisalign! Not only am I receiving treatment to straighten my teeth as an Invisalign Spokesperson, but Ashley is too! Now, I am not just speaking as someone receiving treatment myself, I am also a member of the Invisalign Teen Mom Advisory Board. My daughter has received complimentary treatment, (as have I) from the makers of Invisalign clear aligners, but all opinions expressed are my own.
Ashley is just about half way through her Invisalign treatment, and I wanted to share an update on how it is going.
She is doing great and her teeth are looking so much better! She had two teeth that were really far behind her other teeth, and because she had her adult teeth come in much later than the normal age, she didn't have treatment to straighten her teeth until she was older than the norm. I've heard this is more common than I thought, and I figured that treatment results would be slower too. I was totally wrong.
Her teeth were noticeably straighter in just a couple months. The two teeth that were pushed way back are now much closer to the front and we can't wait to see what the next couple of months will bring her and her much brighter smile!
We have both really loved how easy her Invisalign treatment has been, even with her busy school, workout, and travel schedule.
With traditional braces like Maddie has, we spend so much more time at the orthodontist, something that would be next to impossible for Ashley to do. When we are traveling, Maddie has to skip appointments thus pushing back her treatment time. With Ashley, we just make sure that we have enough new aligners for the time we are away and that is it. She just changes her aligners wherever we are instead of having to go into an office to continue her treatment. Maddie ends up going to the orthodontist three times as often as Ashley and I do.
My only other concern was the cost as it compared to traditional braces and I was happy to learn that Invisalign has a Cost Calculator so that you can get an idea of the cost associated with treatment.
