Most teenagers put great stock in their outward appearance. Metal braces can compromise that and hide their beautiful smile. However, if you opt for Invisalign braces, you continue to smile with confidence. Here are some reasons why these clear braces are growing in popularity among teens:
Discreet and Comfortable
One of the best things teenagers really appreciate about Invisalign is how discreet they are. As young adults who are self-conscious, the fact that these aligners are hardly noticeable is well received. In other words, they do not have to worry about what other people think because their friends will hardly notice them.
These clear braces are not made of visible metal brackets. Instead, Invisalign braces are made from a smooth and transparent polyurethane material. Besides being clear, this material does not irritate their cheeks, lips, and gums, which can result from metal braces.
Because Invisalign braces are removable, teenagers who opt for them can continue to participate in extracurricular activities such as sports and band. All they need to do is remove them, place them in a case and they can play their musical instrument or play football without fear of cutting their lip on sharp braces.
While these should be worn for at least 22 hours a day, your teenager should remove them if they pose a risk. Plus, with Invisalign, they can continue to eat the food they enjoy, such as mashed potatoes or cheesy pizza, without getting food stuck in metal braces. Teens can simply remove the clear aligners and eat what they want – as long as they rinse their mouth before placing them back in.
Since Invisalign is removable, it is also quite easy to clean. Unlike braces, which your teen may not clean as thoroughly, Invisalign does not have any wires so food does not stick in them like traditional metal braces. Invisalign is simple to remove so teens can brush and floss their teeth as they normally would.
This can go a long way to improve periodontal health, especially if your teenager is too busy with extracurricular activities or an active social life to focus on dental care.
