I thought I’d catch y’all up on how we are doing with our Invisalign journey. I have 2 boys using the aligners and we are cray-cray about the whole process! Having had 4 of my kids in traditional braces before this and now being more than halfway through Invisalign with Noah and a few months in with Adam I am sold.
I’m gonna shoe polish this on the back of my car window…..Invisalign or BUST!
And I promise I am saying that of my own free will. No one is making me give both thumbs up. I would never tell you something that I didn’t believe.
Besides being so easy for the boys to take care of and manage, it really is changing their looks. I can tell they are both feeling more confident and excited about their teeth. I have noticed a change in their attitude about brushing and caring for their teeth too. I think having to remove the aligners to eat reminds them to brush before putting them back in.
Another thing I love about this is that we only have to go for checkups every 10 weeks. That turns it into an occasion and we like to make a whole day of it. Our last appointment was this past Monday and my oldest son decided to go along with us. We had a mom/super-tall-boy day in the city. We checked in with our orthodontist then did haircuts, jean shopping and saw a movie. Plus Chick-fil-A of course. We can’t go to the city without a stop at Chick-fil-A.
Speaking of Chick-fil-A, it’s nice that they can take their aligners out to eat. No broken brackets or food getting stuck in the wires. That’s one of the things I really love about using the aligners. And don’t forget to check out my 5 tips for helping them manage the aligners!
Let’s face it, the needs of a teen can be overwhelming. I am so thankful that at least this one area has been made easier and more enjoyable. Now, I wonder what can be done about the problem of outgrowing their shoes every 4 months. Someone needs to invent an adjustable sneaker.
Thanks for stopping by and if you have any aligner questions, hop over to the Invisalign Facebook page and they’re great about answering!
