Reasons Teens LOVE Invisalign

Teens love Invisalign because it is discreet and convenient! Invisalign offers teens a lot more freedom than traditional, metal braces. Here are more reasons why teens love Invisalign:

Clear Appearance
Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually undetectable. This allows teens to straighten their teeth without anyone ever noticing that they are going through treatment.

Removable
You remove your aligners to eat, drink, and brush and can remove them for that special occasion, meaning that, unlike with traditional orthodontic treatments, there are no foods you have to avoid. Additionally, you can maintain your current dental hygiene regimen. For the best results and a timely outcome, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day.

Eat Anything
Trays should be removed prior to eating, and for your lucky teen (and you possibly as meal maker) this means no dining restrictions. Patients with traditional braces must refrain from eating sticky foods, crunch foods, meat with bones (ie. buffalo wings), hard fruit, corn on the cob, popcorn and so much more, but with Invisalign those restrictions are not an issue.

Active Lifestyle
Teens who are already engaging in sports or physical activity don’t need to change their lifestyle or worry about brackets and wires doing damage to their mouths, or conversely, damaging their metal braces in rough play. The Invisalign Teen trays are a smooth fit, and let them play their best.

Dental Hygiene
The Invisalign trays are removed in order to brush and floss, and that makes good oral hygiene easier and quicker to achieve. Your teen will also need to clean the trays, but that also makes them feel more comfortable and fresh.

Comfort
Invisalign is made of a smooth, comfortable material. There are no wires to poke or brackets to break with Invisalign so it is much more comfortable for you to wear and live with.

Fewer Orthodontic Visits
With Invisalign Teen there is generally less time in our office than with other treatments. Appointments are needed about every 10-12 weeks with the average treatment time with Invisalign being about 10-14 months.

Perfect Combination

Invisalign Teen, orthodontic treatment can be started at any time, but as we enter Summer, there are even more compelling reasons to start NOW!

Invisalign uses a series of progressively changing transparent aligners that are each worn for a week. These aligners are precisely made with exact calculations to shift your teeth into their ideal position, giving your teen a straighter, more beautiful smile.

So, here’s three reasons why Summer is the perfect time to make your initial appointment with Sunshine Orthodontics about Invisalign Teen.

1) Time for appointments: Without the obligations of school, teens have more time for orthodontic appointments. You might have more time yourself, especially at the end of vacations or staycations.

2) Time to get used to Invisalign: There are some adjustments to make, but not as many as with traditional braces. Your teen can brush, floss, and eat without the Invisalign tray which is removed during that time. They will have time to get used to wearing the trays for most of the day, keeping them clean, and changing to the next tray as prescribed without the additional pressures of school.

3) Results starting to show for back-to-school: The treatment won’t be complete for the first day of school, but confidence will have risen and a new and improving smile will be ready to share, significant improvement may be apparent by “Picture Day”.

We look forward to hearing from you
