The Road to a Selfie-Ready Smile for Your Teen

Remember when your child was small and you’d ask them to “say cheese!” before taking a photo? All those goofy smiles! As they’ve grown into teens, do they still smile for photos? Big, real smiles– showing teeth?

All parents want their teenagers to be happy, confident and feel good about themselves. The teen years can be rough! The good news is that now more than ever, we have options to get your teen that selfie-ready smile before they’re off to college.

Dr. Nakfoor can help you and your teen choose the right path. Think of your options as the settings on your GPS: whether your teen prefers the fastest route or the more enjoyable scenic route, we will get her to her destination of a straighter smile.

Fastest route

If your teen is of the mindset that the quicker the better, then braces and AcceleDent® is the way to go. You may not be familiar with AcceleDent: it’s an orthodontics system that goes over the braces for 20 minutes each day to accelerate the work the braces are doing by up to 50%. Which means shorter time in braces!

We also provide the PROPEL® System, which can also be used in combination with current orthodontic treatments, including traditional braces, to help move teeth into their desired position 50% faster than teeth can move with Invisalign and traditional braces alone.

Scenic route

If your teen is concerned about how she will look with metal braces or that braces will restrict her too much, she should ask about Invisalign® Teen. Invisalign aligners are made of nearly invisible clear plastic. Some teens also like that the aligners are removable so they can eat whatever she wants.

There is no right or wrong answer – it’s a matter of which treatment process is right for your teen. The great news is that at Nakfoor Orthodontics you have options! Call our office at 847.392.0330 in Arlington Heights or 847.823.3141 in Park Ridge to get your teen a straighter smile by college!

Dr. Bryan Nakfoor is now an Invisalign Premier Provider

Like most medical needs, selecting the right doctor is a very important decision. You want to choose an orthodontist or dentist that you have a good rapport with, and can understand and provide the treatment outcome you’re looking for.

Invisalign-trained Providers like Dr. Nakfoor have achieved a significant level of experience in treating patients with the Invisalign system.
