Many teens require braces. If your teen is in need of teeth alignment, they don’t have to worry about having traditional braces. Invisalign allows you to get straight, beautiful teeth easily. Most teens would prefer to have their teeth straightened without the use of traditional braces. Here are seven reasons why teens love Invisalign:
Often, teens can feel insecure with traditional braces. With Invisalign, the aligners are clear and barely noticeable. The only way someone will notice that you are wearing Invisalign is if they look really closely.
With traditional braces, cleaning your teeth can take up to 30 minutes! That’s 30 minutes that could be spent on homework or chatting with friends. With Invisalign, you can clean your teeth quickly and effectively because the aligners are removable. You simply take the aligners out, brush and floss your teeth normally and then clean your Invisalign aligners with a soft brush. You can also soak them in a solution recommended by your orthodontist to prevent plaque and bacteria from growing on your aligners.
Invisalign is a removable dental device, so you can take it out when you eat. You don’t have to stick to a diet of soups and other soft foods as you would with traditional braces. You also don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your Invisalign aligners since you won’t be wearing these to eat.
With traditional braces, many patients report some discomfort. Invisalign does not cause pain to the gums and teeth because it does not contain metal or other uncomfortable materials that lead to irritation in your mouth.
Invisalign takes less time to correct your teeth than traditional braces. With Invisalign, treatment can last as little as one year whereas with traditional braces, you could be wearing them for five or more years.
With Invisalign, the planning process is computerized which means you can actually see what your teeth will look like when your treatment is done. Unlike with traditional braces, Invisalign allows you to see how your teeth will be improved before you even start your treatment.
