invisteenGrowing up as a teenager is difficult enough. Growing up with crooked teeth can be even more stressful. Many teenagers want to straighten their teeth, but don’t want their high school years to be spent with years of uncomfortable and unsightly metal braces, that can get in the way of eating certain foods and are impossible to hide. That is why most teens prefer using Invisalign for their teeth straightening needs.

Advantages of Invisalign for Teenagers and Young Adults

Invisalign is a comfortable, effective, and affordable choice for those that want to straighten their teeth. It provides the same straightening and aligning that traditional metal braces offer, but with several advantages that make them a better choice for young adults. These include:

  • Clear and Hidden – Built from a clear material that is almost invisible, Invisalign aligners offer teenagers a more aesthetically pleasing solution for their teeth straightening needs. Your friends will not notice anything different while you are wearing them. Instead of having to hide your smile because of metal braces, you are able to confidently show your smile whenever you want, and feel more confident in photos and social settings.
  • Fewer Difficulties – Metal braces can put you at risk for small, uncomfortable cuts that may occur while playing an instrument, wrestling, and more. It can also lead to soreness and general discomfort as it puts pressure on the teeth and gums. Invisalign does not carry these same risks, as there are no sharp wires or brackets to rub the inside of your mouth, and a more gentle custom fit that is less likely to create soreness over time.
  • Eat Anything – Removing things like popcorn and gum from your diet can be difficult for a teenager. With Invisalign, you are not held back from your favorite foods, because the aligners are completely removable. You are able to eat whatever you want, whenever you want.
  • Easier Dental Hygiene – Your teenage years are most important for learning good dental hygiene is most important. Metal braces make it harder to adhere to a healthy dental hygiene routine, as they get in the way of flossing and brushing. Invisalign aligners are removable, making it much easier to brush, floss, and keep up with excellent oral health.
