Invisalign for Teens
When balancing school, friends, clubs, sports, and hobbies, who has time to deal with the discomforts of metal braces? Invisalign Teen straightens teeth and corrects other common dental problems without the pain or restrictions of metal braces. Plus, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, so the only thing others see is a beautiful, healthy smile!
Invisalign corrects a range of common dental issues including:
- Open bite
- Crooked teeth
Why Invisalign Teen is the Clear Choice:
Invisalign Teen aligners are made specifically with each patient’s distinct dental features and alignment needs in mind. The smooth plastic trays used for Invisalign treatment offer greater comfort and less risk of damage to one’s mouth compared to traditional metal braces, which can cause pain and irritation to the cheeks and gums.
Fewer Dental Visits:
With traditional braces, wires can poke out and brackets can break, prompting emergency visits to the orthodontist to correct. The risk of damage to the mouth from metal wires and brackets is eliminated, creating significantly fewer emergency visits. Additionally, patients are only required to visit their dentist every 10 weeks, compared to every six weeks, which is required with traditional metal braces.
The risk of damage caused by traditional braces can pose a major problem for teens who are active in sports or music. Even with a mouthguard, metal braces can still cause serious damage to the teeth and mouth in contact sports, and broken wires or brackets can make playing instruments or singing in a choir difficult and even painful. Invisalign Teen aligners are comprised entirely of comfortable plastic, making them the safer alternative to metal braces when it comes to extracurricular activities.
Eat What You Want:
With Invisalign Teen, you never need to worry about food particles getting stuck between wires, which can damage traditional braces, cause discomfort or embarrassment, and even damage teeth. Invisalign trays can also be removed, allowing you to eat any of the foods you want and clean your teeth normally, so you don’t have to deal with any of the food restrictions imposed by traditional metal braces.
Help Decrease Bullying:
Let’s face it. The teenage years can be difficult. Many teens have problems with self-esteem and with being targeted or bullied while at school. Having braces can make teens an easier target! “Brace Face” and “Metal Mouth” are just some of the nicknames that some teens get labeled with when they have braces.
Invisalign Teen offers a way to transform a smile while avoiding traditional braces.
Invisalign Teen offers a number of advantages for busy teens on-the-go, including less time spent at the dentist office, a significantly reduced chance of injury, and enhanced overall dental health, appearance and quality of life.
