If your teen needs to have their teeth straightened, they may be hesitant to wear metal brackets and wires. Traditional braces may make them feel self-conscious about their smile. To help your teen discretely straighten their smile, our orthodontists may recommend Invisalign Teen®.
Invisalign Teen has many advantages. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic that is nearly invisible. Most people will not even realize that your teen is straightening your teeth. Your teen likely knows someone with traditional braces who has food restrictions. Braces wearers cannot eat things like whole apples, popcorn, and caramel. Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, so your teen can continue to eat all of your favorite foods. Because their aligners are removable, they will also be able to keep brushing and flossing normally. Some teens play sports or a musical instrument. Traditional braces can make these activities difficult, as you can cut your lip on brackets and wires. Invisalign Teen is made of smooth plastic, so your teen will not have to worry about injury and can perform at their best. Invisalign only requires office visits every four to six weeks.
