Does your teen avoid photos at family events or even selfies because they’re self-conscious about their smile? It’s all too common, and unfortunate as an adolescent’s smile can actually have a profound effect on their self-esteem and can even impact their social skills. Playing it out further, lack of self-esteem can thwart college interviews, hinder job opportunities and limit the development of strong relationships.
Yet many teens are hesitant about undergoing traditional orthodontic treatment… namely traditional metal braces. That’s where Invisalign® Teen comes in. With Invisalign, we use a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your teen’s teeth, a result of precise images we take with the sophisticated scanner. Your teen simply wears these aligners over their teeth, changing them out for a new set of aligners periodically—around every two weeks. Little by little, your teen’s teeth gradually shift into place.
With Invisalign Teen Dr. Drobocky can correct many common orthodontic issues from crowding and spaced teeth to protruding upper teeth. He can even address improper bites due to thumb-sucking as a child, periodontal disease, poor dental hygiene, early or late loss of primary teeth or trauma to the teeth from a sports injury.
The good news is that adolescence is the optimal time to address orthodontic problems as teens haven’t yet finished growing. Early correction frequently leads to shorter overall treatment times and can be less costly when compared to correction of issues that have been allowed to progress into adulthood.
At Drobocky Orthodontics we believe the key benefit of orthodontics isn’t straightening teeth, but rather helping to instill the confidence teens need to shape who they become as adults.
Dr. Oles Drobocky leads a friendly, dedicated team that works together to create a positive experience for patients and their families. He is an Invisalign Gold Plus Provider and the leading orthodontist in terms of Invisalign Teen cases treated in South Central Kentucky.
At Drobocky Orthodontics, we also make orthodontic treatment affordable by offering multiple payment options including full payment discounts, no-interest payment program, family discounts, and we accept direct payment from most insurance carriers.
