Reasons Teens Say Yes To Invisalign
April 13, 2017
It can be difficult to get your teenager on board to wear metal braces. Fortunately, there is now a more preferred solution to straighten their crooked smile. Invisalign Teen is an advanced clear orthodontic solution that is gaining increasing popularity.
Invisalign involves a series of clear aligners that are changed out every two weeks until your teeth move into their final position. The soft, thin aligner trays are also removable for eating, brushing and flossing. Invisalign Teen can effectively treat overly crowded or widely spaced teeth as well as improve more complex issues such as overbites, underbites and even crossbites.
Invisalign Teen is easy to yes to, as it can allow your child to do the following:
Smile Confidently for Yearbook Photos- With Invisalign Teen, your orthodontics are barely even noticeable. You can smile confidently in those candid shots with your friends, or remove your aligners for the Yearbook photo.
Play an Instrument in the Band – Traditional metal braces can make it difficult to play certain instrument. With the removable ability of Invisalign, your child can let explore their musical talent any way they like.
Enjoy Popcorn at the Movies – The dietary restrictions of metal braces can seem like a death sentence to teens. With Invisalign, go ahead and order popcorn at the movies or have the occasional candy treat.
Keep Calendar Open for Friends Instead of Orthodontic Visits – Unlike traditional orthodontics, Invisalign Teen doesn’t require frequent trips to the office for tightening and adjustments, which can be very inconvenient for a busy teen.
Avoid Teeth Whitening or Deep Cleanings – Since you can remove the aligners for proper brushing and flossing, you are much less likely to face discoloration, gingivitis or decay at the end of your treatment.
