At my orthodontic practice, offering clear aligners is an important treatment option for patients, especially teenagers. When indicated by a trained orthodontist, Invisalign, the leading clear aligner brand, can provide teens with the beautiful straight teeth they’ve always wanted — without braces.
If your teen is not sure whether they’re a good candidate for Invisalign, a consultation with an orthodontist is the only way to know for sure whether it’s the appropriate treatment option. However, understanding the benefits of Invisalign Teen® can help you make a decision as to whether it could be the right fit for your teen:
- They’re Completely Clear: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No closed-lipped selfies here! If your teen is self-conscious about his or her appearance in photos, Invisalign could be the right choice.
- They’re a Confidence Booster: A recent study found that teens wearing Invisalign are twice as likely to experience a boost in self-esteem while in treatment than teens treated with metal braces.
- They’re Removable: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing your teen to eat and drink whatever they’d like while in treatment- and play certain sports more easily. Invisalign could be much safer for teens if they’re involved in high contact sports.
And here’s a benefit for parents: With Invisalign, there won’t be any brackets to become loose or broken, so there are potentially fewer emergency visits to the orthodontist and fewer interruptions to your busy schedule!
Additionally, for ALL of our braces patients – regardless of what type of treatment – we give out Oral B electric toothbrushes! We feel electric toothbrushes are better for oral hygiene, especially for kids in braces.
