Top Reasons to Love Invisalign Teen
Adolescence can be a turbulent and challenging stage of life. As your teenager tries to gain independence and practices self-sufficiency, they may also struggle to maintain their self-esteem and find their self-confidence. It becomes easy, therefore, to understand why teens are resistant to wear metal braces. If orthodontics is a battle you don’t want to fight, consider Invisalign Teen.
Invisalign Teen was made with teenagers in mind. It is a proven orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without embarrassing metal brackets, food restrictions and frequent office visits. Invisalign Teen works for crowded teeth, gapped teeth and crooked teeth as well as crossbites, under bites and over bites. Best of all, your teen can gain a straight and beautiful smile without fighting you on the process!
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign is an innovative system that relies on a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Patients will change out their provided aligner sets every two weeks until their teeth move into final position. Invisalign should be worn for 22 hours out of the day, but the aligners can be conveniently removed for eating, brushing and flossing. For most patients, treatment time is comparable or shorter than metal braces.
Why Teenagers Prefer Invisalign
Due to its discreet design, high comfort and valued removability, Invisalign Teen can be an ideal choice for the typical adolescent lifestyle:
#1 Preserves a Fragile Self-Esteem. Teens can be very socially-conscious, and appearance starts to really matter. With Invisalign Teen, their peers may not even know they are undergoing orthodontic treatment. They can smile confidently in selfies and not worry about flashing metal braces when they interact with new friends.
#2 Gives the Freedom to Snack. We all know that teenagers experience fast growth, which means they can do some damage in the kitchen pantry. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign doesn’t restrict foods that are hard, crunchy or sticky. Let your teen say yes to popcorn and other treats from time to time!
#3 Easier to Maintain. It may be hard enough to get your teenager to brush his or her teeth, much less brush with braces. Instead of adding more work, Invisalign aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing, which allows teens to care for their teeth without the obstacles of metal brackets and wires. This means a healthy, stain-free smile when your Invisalign treatment is complete. In addition, Invisalign Teen patients don’t have to visit the office for frequent adjustments, which is welcome reprieve for their busy calendar.
