More and more teens are choosing Invisalign and loving it! Why do they love it? There are lots of reasons…
There’s An Option Just For Them = Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen has a number of features that differ from regular Invisalign Full that are specific to the orthodontic issues teens face.
Treatment Is Invisible
It’s not easy being a teen. Teens are often self-conscious about how they look and what people will think of them. Stereotypes about conventional braces are common, so an alternate orthodontic treatment option that is less noticeable is very appealing.
Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and much more discrete.
Eat & Drink Whatever You Like
Very sticky or hard foods are generally off limits with conventional braces due to the damage they can cause. With Invisalign, there are no limits! You can eat and drink whatever you want. All you have to do is remove your aligners beforehand.
Conventional braces make it a lot trickier to brush and floss. Invisalign aligners are very easy to remove. Then all a teen needs to do is brush and floss normally.
No matter what orthodontic treatment you undergo, there will be some discomfort as your teeth shift and move.
Invisalign allows teens to avoid most of the discomforts related to conventional braces like the possibility of brackets and wires rubbing or poking.
Invisalign is made of a smooth plastic, so irritation from the aligners themselves highly unlikely.
Safe For Sports
Teens are active and often involved in sports at school, or extracurricular. Physical contact while a teen is wearing conventional braces could result in damage to the braces, and injury to a teen’s mouth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a durable plastic, so they are unlikely to break due to physical contact. Also the chance of injury directly because of them is low.
There is also that very convenient option of just removing their Invisalign aligners before playing sports. This also accommodates wearing a mouth guard.
