Invisalign has been the number one option for those wishing to retain a seamless appearance, while also reaping the rewards of a straighter smile and an aligned bite. For teenagers, the last thing that they want are wire braces; Invisalign Teen is the perfect answer.
Benefits of Invisalign Teen
Teens don’t want big wire braces. This benefits of Invisalign Teen are something they can get behind:
- Concealment: True to their name, they align your teen’s teeth while remaining completely invisible to their friends and teachers. It takes the embarrassment out of the process for them, keeping their confidence strong, and difficulties between the two of you virtually non-existent.
- Removable: Invisalign Teen is completely removable. While teens need to keep their aligners on for 20 to 22 hours per day for maximum effect, they’ll be able to take moderate breaks when needed, which helps keep them in control of their braces.
- More Hygienic than Wire Braces: Wire braces cannot be removed at home. Because of this, food particles get trapped in hard-to-reach areas, creating plaque and the potential for tooth decay. Even if your teen is thorough with brushing and flossing, this can still occur – there are a lot of small obstacles to overcome with traditional wires.
Removing their aligners for meals and brushing allows them to remain plaque and tartar-free, while still providing the benefits of a straighter smile over time. Cleaning aligners is simple each night; aligners don’t harbor bacteria like wired braces do.
- Fewer Visits: With Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, you’re able to receive multiple aligners for different stages. This requires less visits to your Arroyo Grande dentist for adjustments on wired hardware, lowering your costs, and saving you time.
