Invisalign Success Story: Satchel
Satchel is a perfect example of how Invisalign can transform a smile and a patient’s confidence. Her mother, Jill, explains the changes she saw in her daughter. She was very happy to be getting treatment with Invisalign, she said.
Jill said Satchel had an older sister who had worn braces and had difficulty cleaning them. Satchel had several friends who had used Invisalign, and she realized that was the path she wanted to take.
Jill and Satchel came to Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics for a no-obligation evaluation and chose treatment with Invisalign.
Dr. Don became Satchel’s orthodontist.
“She was a great candidate for Invisalign because she had several different issues that would respond very favorably to Invisalign treatment,” he said. “Her front teeth had problems with size and trauma, resulting in fracturing.
“Invisalign allowed us to precisely place her front teeth in the best possible position to allow optimal dental work to give her the most beautiful smile possible.”
A Transformation With Invisalign
Jill said Satchel took her treatment seriously, from ensuring that she wore the clear aligners a minimum of 22 hours a day to keeping them clean.
“It has given her a sense of responsibility to have to take care of it herself,” Jill said.
Jill said her daughter has always been into the latest technology, so she really liked the idea of using more modern means to straighten her teeth.
She said she was grateful that the team at Wilson & Hendrickson Orthodontics was there for her daughter.
“The staff was very helpful at answering all our questions since Invisalign was new to us,” she said. “They explained very clearly the cost and potential outcome and time frame, which was very helpful.”
Their positive experience extended throughout Satchel’s treatment, Jill said.
“Each time we visit, they make it quick and easy to understand where we are in the process,” she said. “They are very encouraging and friendly each time we visit.”
She said her daughter was transformed by her experience with Invisalign. She now has a bright, straight, beautiful smile she shows off proudly.
“She is much more confident about her appearance,” Jill said.
Giving Your Child The Gift of Confidence
Many of our tween and young adult patients start orthodontic treatment with a lack of confidence in their smiles. Crooked teeth and overbites can impact their desire to show their smile off, so they often try to hide their teeth. We want them to be proud of their smiles, which is why we offer treatment with Invisalign and Invisalign Teen.
Teenagers love Invisalign for several reasons, from look to comfort. These custom-created aligners are clear and virtually invisible. So your teen can smile with confidence, even during treatment!
Invisalign aligners are removable, which means kids can still eat their favorite things. It’s also easy to keep your teeth clean. Simply remove the aligners, brush and floss normally, rinse the aligners and replace them on your teeth!
These pros make Invisalign a popular choice for teenagers.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses clear acrylic aligners that are customized to the patient’s teeth and use gentle pressure to move the teeth into their proper positions.
