What are the benefits of Invisalign Teen?
One of the main complaints that teenagers have about metal braces is that they are so visible and prominent. Most teenagers have teeth straightening treatments during the period of their lives when personal appearance becomes very important to their peers to themselves. One of the major benefits of Invisalign teen is that they are virtually invisible and they do not interfere with the teenager’s voice or speaking patterns.
Fewer Food Restrictions
Another of the biggest complaints about metal braces is how restrictive they are when it comes to food. Metal braces are very easily damaged by certain foods. Invisalign, on the other hand, allows teenagers to eat whatever they want, since the aligners are removed for eating. Because the child actually has the ability to take out the teeth-straightening device, there is no possibility of damage, and therefore no limit on what the teenager is allowed to eat.
Easier to Care for
When a teenager first has their braces put on, they are usually provided with a special set of tooth brushes that make it easier for them to clean around the brackets and wires. The cleaning process for bracket and wire braces is very time consuming if done properley. Because of this, some teenagers will simply forgo the process, brushing quickly and not taking the time to really get their teeth clean.
With Invisalign, however, all the teen has to do is take out the aligners, brush them down, brush his/her teeth as normal, and then replace the aligners. As long as this is done properly, Invisalign is far less likely to cause cavities or damage the teeth in any other way.
The pain and discomfort is probably the biggest complaint of traditional braces, aside from how visible they are. Not only are they uncomfortable to put on, every adjustment can be uncomfortable, as well as just the general discomfort of having that much metal in your mouth. Though with Invisalign Teen, there will still be some slight soreness and discomfort, there will be far less than with metal braces.
In summary, Invisalign Teen is perfect for teenagers, who can greatly benefit from all of the features that these invisible, plastic teeth aligners have to offer. Call us to book your Invisalign Teen consultation today on 01609 761377.
