3 WAYS TO KNOW IF INVISALIGN IS RIGHT FOR YOUR TEEN

At our orthodontic practice, offering clear aligners is an important treatment option for patients, especially teenagers. When indicated by a trained orthodontist, Invisalign, the leading clear aligner brand, can provide teens with the beautiful straight teeth they’ve always wanted — without braces.

A consultation with an orthodontist like Dr. Mitch or Dr. Pelsue is the only way to know for sure whether it’s the appropriate treatment option, but understanding the benefits of Invisalign can help you make a decision as to whether it could be the right fit for your teen:

  1. They’re Completely Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No closed-lipped selfies here! If your teen is self-conscious about his or her appearance in photos, Invisalign could be the right choice.
  2. They’re a Confidence Booster: A recent study found that teens wearing Invisalign are twice as likely to experience a boost in self-esteem while in treatment than teens treated with metal braces.
  3. They’re Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing your teen to eat and drink whatever they’d like while in treatment- and play certain sports more easily.

And here’s a benefit for parents: With Invisalign there won’t be any brackets to become loose or broken, so there are potentially fewer emergency visits to the orthodontist, and fewer interruptions to your busy schedule!

At Beam Smiles we are focused on getting you and/or your teen the smile you want to achieve! Our fun, friendly office is conveniently located in the Hilldale Shopping Center, making it an easy stop off. With 30 years of orthodontic experience under our belt we have thousands of success stories. Come in and be the next one!

We get a lot of questions about Invisalign. Below we have answered the five most common questions we get about the clear aligners from patients who are considering the treatment for themselves or their child. If your question isn’t answered, give us a call at 608-467-3336 to speak with one of Beam Smiles’ knowledgeable and friendly staff members.

1) How does Invisalign work?

As a Certified Invisalign provider, Dr. Mitch Pelsue and Dr. Brian Pelsue at Beam Smiles use precision technology to create a high-resolution, interactive image of your teeth and uses that to produce a comprehensive treatment plan that creates the pathway to your better smile. Every one-to-two weeks along the way you will get a new 3D printed aligner that applies just the right amount of force on your teeth. Each one is custom-made for your mouth to guide your toward your goal. Watch this video for a primer on the technology behind Invisalign and how it works. Note: we will embed that video directly into your site if possible, otherwise we will post it to your Facebook page and link directly there.

2) How do I clean the aligners?

Caring for your aligners is easy. Rinse your aligners nightly and gently brush them with your toothbrush to keep them fresh and clean. There’s also a cleaning system available to keep your aligners clear. But, for the most part, you’ll only be wearing each custom-made set of aligners for about one to two weeks before being replaced so there isn’t enough time for them to get dingy if you brush them nightly.

3) What can’t I eat?

Trick question. There’s nothing you can’t eat! Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t have restrictions on what you can’t chew while undergoing treatment. That’s because Invisalign appliances are removable. That said, we wouldn’t be doing our duty if we didn’t warn you against eating sugary snacks and encouraging you to brush after every meal. Otherwise, when it comes to enjoying all of your favorite foods, we say go for it! Just remember that you need to wear your Invisalign appliances 20 to 22 hours a day for best results.

4) Are they comfortable?

Dr. Mitch or Dr. Pelsue will take a precise scan of your teeth and plan out every move needed to give you the perfect smile. The treatment plan is personalized to fit your mouth. There is no guesswork so every aligner is made to ensure the utmost comfort, and they’re precision trimmed so they don’t cut your gums. Also, the patented plastic material is flexible and forms a snug fit over your teeth.

5) Is Invisalign plastic safe?

The aligners are made from SmartTrack material, an FDA-approved, flexible plastic that was invented by bioengineers exclusively for Invisalign. They contain no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten so we are confident that the material is safe for your mouth.

…and one more for good measure: 6) Is Invisalign good for teens?

Yes. Invisalign is not just for adults who don’t want to wear traditional metal braces. And, the overall cost of Invisalign is becoming much more comparable to metal braces. If your teen wants the benefits that come with Invisalign, click below to schedule a complimentary consultation.

At Beam Smiles we are focused on getting you and/or your teen the smile you want to achieve! Our fun, friendly office is conveniently located in the Hilldale Shopping Center, making it an easy stop off. With 30 years of orthodontic experience under our belt we have thousands of success stories. Come in and be the next one!

After practicing orthodontics in Janesville for over 30 years I’m often asked why I opened a new office in Madison.

It all started after a night of yoga in Oconomowoc. I know, this sounds a little strange coming from an orthodontist.

First, a little background. When my son, Dr. Brian Pelsue, joined my practice in 2008 I began to pursue other interests. One of my passions was stand up paddleboarding. I decided to turn my passion into a business and opened a paddleboard shop on Fowler Lake in Oconomowoc called Boards and More. Part of the business plan was working with yoga instructors to teach paddleboard yoga, so it wasn’t long before I was taking paddleboards in and out of the lake 3-4 times a week for the various yoga instructors I worked with. At the end of the summer of 2016 one of the instructors asked what I was going to do now that the season was coming to an end. I replied I wasn’t sure, and she suggested I look into teaching indoor spinning classes. After researching the spinning business, my younger son, David, and I decided to open three spinning studios called Cyclebar, one in Brookfield and two in Madison. David and I felt the ideal westside Madison location would be the Hilldale Shopping Center. However, the only space available was the former Flat Top Grill, which was too large for the studio. Since my other son was running the Janesville orthodontic practice, I negotiated with Hilldale management to take up the excess space available to open an orthodontic office specializing in Invisalign. Hence, Beam Smiles, Madison’s Orthodontic Specialist, was born. The result has been nothing short of amazing. Beam is staffed by two incredible “Smilestars”, Emmie and Karen(more on them in another blog, they both have backgrounds that make them ideal for taking care of our Beam patients). I can’t say enough about the patients that have become a part of our Beam family, just that we feel blessed to have the opportunity to serve them. If you get a chance, please stop by to say hi and check out our studio, it’s one of a kind in the city of Madison.
