Talking about braces!! @Invisalign #INVStraightTalk #ad

Oh my! Braces! I clearly remember the day I got mine put on, I HATED them. The entire mouth full of metal, the nicknames " metal mouth, train tracks, you name it I heard it!

I was in 7th grade when I got my braces put on, right at the height of all those insecurities {thanks MOM!!}

Here I am with my metal braces and my huge glasses. I cannot believe I am sharing this picture!

As a child I sucked my thumb, quite possibly until I was 13 years old. Needless to say I had a HUGE overbite and my teeth needed to be fixed.

I had my braces on from 7th grade until I was in high school since I was very non compliant. Once I realized they weren't coming off until I complied with all of the rules of having metal braces I quickly did everything I was supposed to.

During my senior year of high school my braces FINALLY came off and this was the result. Nice straight teeth!

Today I am dealng with my 11 year old and braces. Did you know they have Invisalign for teens?! 

There are more than 2 million Invisalign cases in treatment or completed worldwide. From very simple to very challenging, Invisalign offers a full spectrum of clear straightening treatments for most types of orthodontic issues. Take the Invisalign Smile Assessment to find out if Invisalign is right for you or your child.

Today’s braces are more sophisticated than ever. Gone are the days of “wrap around” metal brackets, bonded brackets and big clunky head and neck gears. As technology enhances our daily lives, it also continues to advance the science of orthodontics.

Adults and teens now have a modern choice for straightening their teeth.  No more wires and brackets required – Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces that uses a series of virtually invisible and removable aligners that gradually move teeth over time. The benefits include no food restrictions, ability to easily maintain healthy dental brushing habits, minimal interference with sports or other activities, and teeth get straightened without most people knowing you are in treatment.  Visit the Invisalign website for more information about the clear alternative to braces.

I wish as a pre-teen/teen that Invisalign was around because I would have done anything to not have had those horrid metal brackets in my mouth!

What are your thoughts on Invisalign based on what I shared with you?
