Why Choose Invisalign For Teens

If you’re a teen, or the parent of a teen, who is considering orthodontic correction, Invisalign should be one option to think about! If you haven’t heard of Invisalign before, it is the invisible way to straighten your smile. Invisalign for Teens offers many different benefits that can make aligning your teeth simpler and more flexible compared to traditional metal braces. At Academy Dental, we are proud to be certified Invisalign providers for Victoria residents!

How Does Invisalign Work?

Like conventional braces, Invisalign corrects a number of common orthodontic issues. This includes underbites, overbites, crossbites, and crooked or misaligned teeth. Academy Dental can provide Invisalign to straighten out your smile! The process uses a series of clear, custom-made aligner trays that will fit perfectly into your mouth. The trays are made of BPA-free plastic that is smooth, comfortable, and designed specifically for your unique orthodontic needs. Every two weeks, you change your set of aligner trays and your teeth will gradually move into place!

Benefits For Teens

As a teen, life is very dynamic and constantly evolving. The last thing you should be worrying about is dealing with uncomfortable metal braces! Thankfully, Invisalign for Teens is a trusted method for teenagers and young adults to straighten their smile with added convenience and flexibility. You can smile for photos and laugh with your friends, all the while feeling confident about your teeth! With Invisalign Teen, you will have the freedom to do the things you love – eating your favorite foods, playing sports and instruments, and just being yourself! The best part is you’ll have a perfectly straight new smile, without anyone knowing that you had braces.

Dental Check Ups

When was the last time you visited your dentist for a check-up? Many people  don’t realize just how important a dental checkup can be for your overall health! We recommend come in for a checkup and see a dental professional at least two times a year for examinations and cleanings. At Academy Dental, your Victoria dentist, we analyze your teeth and gums for signs of dental cavities, gingivitis, and all other health problems.

Even if you think your mouth is healthy because you brush and floss everyday, you are not able to reach and examine all the parts of your own mouth. Our dental experts can analyze your mouth in deep detail and keep in mind the condition of your teeth and gums!

Here’s some more reasons why your dental checkups are important: 

  • Dental checkups allow your dentist to look for problems that you might not see or feel
  • Dealing with other oral health problems (normally, the earlier a problem is found, the more workable it is). 
  • They help us to find early indications of decay. You won’t notice decay right away because it doesn’t become visible or trigger pain until it reaches advanced phases! 
  • They allow us to talk about any changes to your medical history that may have occurred since your last checkup. 
  • We can inspect the skin and soft tissue inside the mouth for any abnormalities. X-rays will be taken of any teeth that reveal indications of decay or wear.
  • Previous dental treatments will also be checked and evaluated such as extractions, fillings, crowns and implants, just making sure everything is healthy and as it needs to be! 


It’s important to remember that clients of all ages including babies, children, adults, and seniors require a dental checkup, which is why we’re happy to provide family dentistry for all members of your household! A dental check up allows us to spot problems within the early stages and enables us to treat them right away which prevents the issue from developing into a more severe problem. That’s why maintaining appointments with us is so necessary.
