Orthodontic treatment, for years, seemed like an unfortunate rite of passage for teen patients. Wearing unsightly metal brackets and wires—becoming a “metal mouth”—was something that many patients had to do in order to get the straight smile they wanted. Now, however, teenage patients can achieve stunning smiles without the hassle of metal braces. Revolutionary Invisalign treatment allows patients to perfect their smiles without any metal at all!
Today we’re going to be talking about why so many teen patients (and parents of teens!) are choosing Invisalign for orthodontic treatment.
The number one reason that teens want Invisalign, is because Invisalign aligners are practically invisible when worn! These clear plastic aligners are so unobtrusive that people may not even realize that you’re wearing an aligner at all. Teenage patients love the idea that they’ll be able to get straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces for years.
Many parents choose Invisalign for their teens because it is quite easy to maintain healthy, clean teeth with Invisalign treatment. Invisalign aligners are completely removable, so patients take them out to brush and floss normally throughout the day. With these aligners you don’t have to worry about food becoming stuck in your teeth and metal brackets and wires.
Both patients and parents alike love the fact that Invisalign aligners are so comfortable incomparison to traditional braces. While metal brackets and wires can scrape the inside of a patient’s gums, Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear.
