There are many reasons why you should choose Invisalign Teen over traditional braces for your tween or teen. Often, patients are given the choice to do either one. Now the decision falls on you. Which one will you choose? Either one will give you great results but here are the top 4 reasons why you should choose Invisalign Teen over braces.
Reason 1: You do not need to change your habits. Brushing and eating are the two greatest concerns when undergoing orthodontic therapy. When undergoing Invisalign treatment hard and sticky foods do not need to be avoided like you would with braces. Simply remove your clear aligners at meal time and enjoy the foods you always have. Brushing and flossing techniques also remain the same. There are no challenges of braces and wires that you have to clean around and underneath. Brush and floss the way you always have, just remove your aligners to do it.
Reason 2: You are always selfie ready. Self-conscious about the appearance of braces? Invisalign is the clearest choice out there, even less visible than clear braces. That is because there are no brackets and wires that can be seen on the teeth. Invisalign is made of clear plastic trays that comfortably slide over your teeth. You can straighten your teeth while living your life. Senior pictures coming up? No problem. Attending a wedding? No problem! So go ahead and take that selfie.
Reason 3: Less time spent in the orthodontic office. Parents and patients are busy with their work and school lives. You can take back some time during your orthodontic treatment via shorter follow up appointments and longer duration between appointments. Not to mention virtually no unscheduled visits. No brackets or wires to break and poke you in-between your routine appointments causing an extra trip to the orthodontist.
Reason 4: Invisalign Teen guarantee: Concerned your teen or tween will not wear the aligners? You might be pleasantly surprised that they will. I find my teen patients do a great job of wearing their aligners. In the rare case that they don’t, there is a teen guarantee and patients can be switched to traditional braces at no additional cost. There are also 3 sets of replacement aligners included with the treatment so you can rest easy as to not have to pay for a replacement set. Again, rarely have I had to order a replacement aligner.
So, there you have it, four great reasons to choose Invisalign Teen over braces.
