Why Teens Love Invisalign

girl-on-swing.pngBeing a teenager is time of new beginnings and new possibilities. When you are told that you need braces, that is a game changer. Most teens are thinking a mouth full of metal is not a part of their goals. Invisalign Teen is the clear alternative to traditional braces. Unlike traditional wired braces, Invisalign Teen aligners are clear, comfortable, and removable.


Five Reasons Invisalign Is Changing Your Teenage Years

School, sports, dating, and hanging out with friends, getting metal braces is not at the top of your list of favorite things to do. With Invisalign Teen, you can straighten your teeth without metal wires and brackets getting in the way. You’re free to enjoy the things that make these the best times of your life.

  1. Invisalign Teen aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth of metal, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day. And that can make for a better social life overall.

  2. You probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are completely removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want. This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would.

  3. Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold you back from enjoying the things you want to. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet.

  4. While you’re straightening your teeth with Invisalign clear aligners, you can keep brushing and flossing like you always do. No extra time cleaning between the brackets and wires.

  5. Invisalign treatment is the most advanced orthodontic system for orthodontic needs, with innovations no other clear aligner can claim. Only Invisalign clear aligners are made from proprietary SmartTrack material, so they provide a better fit and move your teeth more precisely.
