We all remember those teenage years – worrying about our appearance and wanting to fit in with our friends. But for teens who have crooked, gappy or overcrowded teeth, there’s a very simple solution: Invisalign braces.
A modern brace
Unlike traditional metal and wire braces, which can leave a feeling of pressure on mouth and teeth, not to mention look unsightly, Invisalign Teen has been specially developed to be as discreet and comfortable as possible. These clear braces are crafted from quality plastic using 3D technology to create an impression, rather than traditional moulds. Every few weeks, the braces are changed to ensure your teen’s teeth are tracking properly.
A confident smile
Not only will your teen likely feel more confident now that they’re straightening out their smile, but as a parent, you can feel confident your teen is using their Invisalign braces correctly, as each tray features a small blue indicator to show wear.
A healthier mouth
As the teeth are turned by the Invisalign braces and properly aligned in the mouth, more of the tooth surface will be visible – which means there’s more tooth to clean, and fewer places for bacteria to hide, like inside those hard-to-reach crevices. Your teen will still need regular check-ups with the Orthodontist and will also need to maintain a good oral hygiene routine (brushing twice daily, flossing and possibly using mouthwash). But with the potential for that perfect smile, they’ll want to give their mouth the best care they can. Finally, any teeth yet to come through will be taken into account through the treatment, which involves regularly changing the braces.
A happier teen
With straighter teeth comes a boost to self-esteem, and you’ll probably see a difference in your teen and how they feel when they use Invisalign braces. They’ll also be able to take out the braces for eating, brushing and those all-important special occasions!
