Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth using aligners customized specifically to your mouth. These aligner trays are generally very smooth, comfortable to wear and virtually invisible. Like braces, Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into place; but in this case, there are no wires to tighten. You will simply receive a new set of aligners during each visit.
Besides being virtually invisible, Invisalign is a much less intrusive method of straightening teeth. As there are no wires to tighten, each visit will consist of a simple assessment and the replacement of your aligners. Invisalign is the perfect option for patients who are self-conscious about wearing braces, fear visiting the dentist, or both!
Invisalign is the ideal aligner for teens for many reasons. The first and most obvious benefit is the near invisibility of the aligner. With no metal wires or brackets, your teen will feel much more confident in their smile while wearing Invisalign. In fact, this particular aspect of Invisalign is so popular that the number of teens wearing aligners has significantly increased! You could say that Invisalign is helping make oral health care the cool thing to do.
Extracurricular activities are challenging enough for teens without the additional concern of a potentially dangerous mouth full of wire. If your teen plays a sport, Invisalign removes the risk of increased harm from blunt impact to the mouth. With metal braces, getting hit in the face carries the additional risk of cut lips and gums. The same applies to teens that play musical instruments such as the saxophone, trumpet, or clarinet.
