Why Invisalign Is Suited For Teenagers

December 15, 2019

The usage of braces and wires alters the daily activities of the teen because they need to adjust their oral care routine and also, constantly checking on their dietary intakes. It also dramatically affects their appearance, which can affect their self-esteem. These are just some of the reasons parents are opting for aligners as opposed to wires and braces. Invisalign is a tooth treatment method that aligns the teeth without the need for bracelets or wires. The process involves the use of clear, removable and customized tooth applications called aligners. The use of aligners offers a less noticeable way of straightening teeth and restoring the natural smile of your teen.

Invisalign Makes It Easy To Keep Teeth Clean

Even without braces or wires, maintaining the oral health of your teenager is already a tough enough process. You need to remind them to brush their teeth and floss whenever it is required. The need for these reminders, also increases with wires and braces. The good thing about these aligners is that they are removable. The teen can remove them, brush their teeth and replace them.

It Does Not Affect Their Diet 

When your teen opt for wires or braces, there are certain foods and snacks they can no longer enjoy. You always have to ensure that they don’t eat anything that can get stuck in the braces or wires. The good thing about aligners is the fact that it does not affect the regular feeding routine. Invisalign technology is designed in a way that the aligners can withstand eating a wide variety of food. Some dentists also include the cost of complimentary replacements with the initial installation.  

Invisalign Is Ideal For Busy Schedules

If you have a teen who participates in a wide range of activities, aligners can be an excellent option suited to their busy schedule. With this treatment, you do not need to always fit in dentist appointments, as is the case with braces and wires. With these aligners, you only need to make a trip to the dentist once every six months.

In-Built Compliance Indicators 

Parents worry that because they cannot see the aligners, there is no way of knowing whether they are being put into use by their children. Invisalign technology uses an in-built compliance indicator that tells you and the dentist whether a patient is wearing the aligners as per the treatment plan. With this data, the dentist can adjust the treatment to ensure your teen is comfortable following through with it.

Your Kids Maintain Their Smile through the Treatment Process 

Because the aligners are almost transparent, the user does not need to feel insecure about smiling or maintaining a healthy social life. These aligners are the best choice for teens taking part in sports, athletics and the playing of wind instruments.
