We’re a family dentist so we know exactly what teens go through when they need to straighten their teeth. Although braces are a viable orthodontic option, many teens today actually prefer to go with a more discreet treatment like Invisalign treatment. Our dentists are here to explain why Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic treatment for teens.

Invisalign is Discreet

One of the top reasons why Invisalign is the perfect orthodontic treatment for teens is because it’s a discreet treatment. Teenagers can straighten their smile without wearing the appearance of metal braces for 2 years. Made with thin translucent plastic, Invisalign is comfortable to wear and nearly invisible to the naked eye. Teenagers can straighten their smiles without worrying what their smile looks like in photos or if a bully will target them for metal braces. Instead, their treatment is completely discreet and a secret between them and their dentist.

Teens Can Eat Anything with Invisalign

Not only do teens have fast metabolisms, but they like to eat everything in sight. Eating with metal braces is difficult especially with the large list of foods you’re not allowed to eat. After you eat while wearing metal braces, it can take tens of minutes to remove food particles from your teeth. With Invisalign, eating is easy. Simply remove the clear aligners and enjoy your favorite foods. Invisalign is perfect for teenagers who love to eat and don’t want to deal with a restricted diet.

Invisalign is Convenient

With removable aligners, Invisalign is incredibly convenient. Not only can you eat anything you want for the duration of your treatment, but you can brush and floss your teeth like you normally would. This means no dealing with threading floss or using a special toothbrush to reach behind brackets and wires. Taking care of your Invisalign aligners and your teeth are easy.

Invisalign Works Fast

Teenagers are always in a hurry which is why Invisalign is the perfect option for them. Most Invisalign treatments take as little as 6 months or 2 years to complete, depending on how severe the problems are. To qualify as a candidate for Invisalign, patients must only have mild to moderate problems, otherwise, we recommend metal braces. If your teen is impatient for results, consider Invisalign treatment instead of metal braces. The treatment will finish before you know it.
