Teenage years can be tough. Between school, sports, and social events, who has time for braces? On top of that, many teenagers don’t want braces. We’ve heard it all before, and if your teen wants a better smile but is not too fond of the idea of braces, we have an alternative for you: Invisalign Teen!
What is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is a version of the extremely popular clear aligners made just for teens. This system uses a series of nearly invisible clear aligners to straighten teeth resulting in a beautiful new smile!
Why is Invisalign so great for teens?
Invisalign fits seamlessly into your teen’s already hectic life. There are many benefits of this orthodontic treatment:
- Invisalign is virtually invisible. The clear aligners are much less noticeable than traditional braces, so your teen can stay confident even during treatment!
- The aligners are removable, so they won’t get in the way of your teen’s eating habits and daily routines. They can still have all of their favorite foods as well as brush and floss just like they normally would.
- There is a much lower risk of something going wrong (what we call an “ortho emergency”) with Invisalign. There aren’t any wires or brackets that can be damaged!
- Invisalign requires less frequent appointments. Because the Invisalign aligners don’t have to be adjusted like traditional braces, your teen only has to come in for appointments about every 10 weeks. One less thing to add to their busy schedule!
