Invisalign for Teens
Many teenagers are affected by malocclusions that need to be corrected. However, the thought of going through high school with braces may be your teen’s worst nightmare. Luckily, Invisalign Teen® can be very helpful. Your teenager can get the smile that he or she deserves without bulky wires and brackets.
Invisalign Teen® uses clear aligners, so nobody will even know they are wearing them. As long as your teenager wears them for at least twenty-two hours a day, they will get proper treatment without the embarrassment of wires and braces. Even better, your teenager will be able to remove the aligners when it is time to eat, allowing them unlimited food choices. There are no restrictions that usually come with braces, like avoiding corn on the cob. Once they are finished eating, however, it is essential to brush their teeth AND the aligners to ensure fresh breath and a healthy mouth.Book Your Complimentary
Not every case can be efficiently treated with Invisalign. If braces are a must, your teen still has aesthetic options! Clear braces are made from durable ceramic to ensure they do not stain from consuming certain foods and beverages. Unfortunately, they are not indestructible, so your teen will have to be careful by avoiding hard, sticky foods or habits like nail biting. Braces are “glued” to the tooth surface, that bond is strong but can not withstand the shear forces applied when eating hard foods.
Metal braces can be fun too! Metal braces patients can tailor the look of their braces at every visit with the multitude of colored ligature choices. If removable treatment like Invisalign just isn’t in the cards for your teenager, traditional metal braces certainly get the job done. It is important for your teen to understand the importance of good brushing and flossing habits to avoid damage to the tooth enamel. It is also important to be gentle with the braces by avoiding hard, sticky foods and taking care on the sports fields to prevent frequent breakages of the brackets.
