Let’s start with the obvious: appearance. Metal braces are hard to miss. As much as we tell our teenager that they shouldn’t worry about their appearance while undergoing orthodontia and that it’s what’s on the inside that counts, the fact of the matter is teenagers tend to shy away from anything that sets them apart from their peers, even if the results of beautifully straight teeth are extremely appealing.
Invisalign Teen is a Popular Choice
Unlike younger kids who eagerly accept orthodontic work as a “big kid” thing to do, teenagers tend to be a different breed. Teens are more concerned about their appearance, which is all of a sudden undergoing some big changes as it is. Add a tin grin to the mix, and you might hit resistance.
The good news is that your teenager can now straighten their teeth and fix their bite or alignment—or whatever the case may be—and feel good about how they look while doing it. It’s a win-win. The benefits are plenty:
Disguise the “braces”
Let’s face it—teens want to fit in and will buck against anything that sets them apart. The clear, nearly there appearance of Invisalign Teen disguises braces beautifully.
Fewer trips to the orthodontist
Busy teens and parents love the convenience factor of Invisalign Teen. Because the aligner trays are made ahead of time, your teen will have everything he or she needs upfront. That means fewer appointments to squeeze into a busy schedule, fewer trips to the orthodontist, less waiting in the office.
Custom fit to help anyone
Invisalign Teen is custom made to fit your teenager’s needs. The versatility of the concept makes it a viable solution for virtually everyone.
Maintain excellent oral health
Teens are busy and adding one more step to their routine, such as threading flossers between each tooth and around wires just might push them over the edge. With Invisalign, your teen can simply remove the aligners while eating—which lessons the chance of food particles getting caught—and floss more quickly, making that step easier to stick to than would be the case with traditional braces.
Easier to wear
Nobody likes dealing with mouth sores, irritation, or cuts because of wires and brackets. Made of smooth plastic, Invisalign is easy to wear. No more wax. No more dealing with a broken wire poking into the cheek. Just slip on and off with ease. Not only that, but teens may remove them while playing musical instruments or performing on stage.
