Invisalign for Teens
is Invisalign right for your child?
Invisalign is the modern way to predictably, and comfortably straighten teeth and bites. Invisalign is a series of clear aligners so you can see your teen's progress every step of the way. There are many benefits to Invisalign treatment in the adolescent population. One of the most important benefits to treating adolescence with Invisalign is they can adequately brush and floss their teeth every day. Braces and wires can obstruct proper cleaning in many patients. This is no longer an issue when undergoing treatment with Invisalign. Proper cleaning reduces the potential for permanent white spot lesions, cavities and gingivitis. Another benefit to Invisalign treatment in adolescent patients is, they can eat whatever they want. They just remove the aligners when they eat. Moms and dads don't have to make special foods for their child undergoing Invisalign treatment. Since the aligners are removed when eating, there are no brackets to break or wires to poke. Plus, no brackets or wires means sports injuries are less likely. Patients can go with longer periods of time between appointments compared to traditional braces, which makes it easier on the family's busy schedule. Patients who play instruments that press against the lips, find Invisalign to be much more comfortable compared to braces. Studies have also shown teens with Invisalign are 2x more likely to have a boost in self-esteem. Teens can live life uninterrupted since aligners are clear and can be taken out for school photos, drivers license pictures or important life events. Insurances, flexible spending accounts, and payment plans can help you fit Invisalign into your budget.
