4 Reasons to Love Invisalign Teen Edina Orthodontics
-YOU CAN’T BEAT THE HYGIENIC BENEFITS FOR KIDS!!! Got a questionable brusher…this is a prime scenario to not just offer Invisalign Teen but strongly recommend it! As I heard once from an Elite Invisalign provider, “you aren’t going to change the stripes on a tiger.” Putting a suspect brusher into Invisalign Teen may not improve their brushing, but it will be much better for their hygiene than having braces on for the next 18 months. This is one of the top reasons parents appreciate Invisalign Teen for their kids.
- Parents don’t realize the long-term potential damage to their children’s teeth in braces if they are questionable brushers. Imagine spending the money on braces, then seeing decalcification when the braces are removed.
-Handling Objections from Mom-How many moms have to have the brushing battle when their kids are in braces? Invisalign has proven to be a great option for parents that are concerned about hygiene in their kids.
INVISALIGN TEEN IS IDEAL TO USE IN SPORTS AND EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES. For active kids Invisalign Teen won’t interfere with their busy lives.
INCREASE PATIENT CONFIDENCE…A MORE POSITIVE ORTHODONTIC EXPERIENCE! Kids may want braces but teenagers want Invisalign. They are focused on how others perceive them! 13-15 year old patients will not dread orthodontics when they are offered Invisalign Teen!! That makes everyone’s experience better and dramatically improves patient cooperation.
Mom’s will LOVE the flexible scheduling and shorter appointments. No banding/de-banding…no emergencies…shorter follow up appointments…often appointments are scheduled further apart. This makes everyone happy!

Simple Steps to take Care of a Retainer after Orthodontic Treatment
How long will you need to wear your retainer? Forever.
Yes, we know that forever sounds like a long time. Your retainer ensures that your teeth will not move back into their old crooked positions. We have seen many adults quit wearing their retainer after a few years and end up having to go through the entire braces process again. It is best to just keep wearing your retainer to ensure your teeth won’t move.
Keep your retainer in a retainer case.
Don’t wrap it in a tissue. This is the most common way that retainers get thrown out. Have you heard the horror stories someone losing their retainer and digging through garbage cans for their retainer? Yuck! It’s best to just use the case to ensure you always know where it is and don’t end up throwing it away.
It is important to keep your retainers clean.
Like your teeth, your retainers can get a buildup of bacteria and white plaque. You must clean your retainers every single night. It is best to clean them with a bacteria-killing product like Retainer Brite, SonicBrite, or DentaSoak. You can brush your retainers with a toothbrush and toothpaste, but this will not adequately kill the bacteria. A good retainer cleaning product will ensure that your retainers stay clean and fresh smelling.
The simple tips above on taking care of your retainer will keep that smile of yours smiling. Of course, you have any retainer issues, be sure to check in with either of our Edina Orthodontics offices at any time.

How to ease the pain of poking wires on braces – Edina Orthodontics
See If You Can Push It Back Into Place
Sometimes you can just use a finger to push it back into place. Other times, you can guide the wire back into the tube.
When In Doubt, Wax It!
This should be able to blunt the wire comfortably until you can come in and get it fixed professionally.
Bend The Wire To Guard Against The Pointy End
Usually, you can curve the wire into a position where it’s resting against your gums or teeth.
Schedule an appointment!
Don’t hesitate to call our office and come in to get this fixed.
It is our goal at Edina Orthodontics to make your experience with your braces the most comfortable as possible. This includes helping ease the pain of poking wires on braces.
