Invisalign Teen is a clear, smooth tooth alignment aid with the same purpose as braces. It offers a new treatment option for obtaining a healthy, straight smile that makes individual comfort, health, and aesthetics more attainable.
One of the best functional advantages to Invisalign Teen is that the aligners are removable. Braces are meant to stay on long term and need a dental visit to remove them when it is time. The ability to remove the aligner means that personal sacrifices on favorite food items, like corn, chips, or other foods that can easily get stuck in braces, are not required. Coffee would need to be avoided with veneer treatments to avoid discoloration, and the veneering process itself requires the destruction of tooth enamel.
Better Than the Alternatives
Invisalign Teen doesn’t require sharp wires like braces, which can cut into the mouth and cause pain, or the removal of tooth enamel to use veneer to correct visible imperfections. This means a more comfortable experience that is comparable to traditional treatments in terms of cost.
Parents & Teens Approve
Self confidence is often a major deal with teenagers, and the clear, and barely noticeable design of Invisalign Teen means that a teen can smile with confidence. Parents can also rest assured that Invisalign Teen won’t exacerbate poor oral health by contributing to tooth damage and decay as traditional methods can. Braces wires can make cleaning of the teeth more difficult simply by being in the way and having to stay on long term. Depending on how tightly they are placed, braces can even potentially damage the teeth directly.
