Five Reasons Teens Love Invisalign

Although traditional braces have become more common among pre-teens and teens over the last few decades, it can still be a challenging experience.

Imagine teenagers achieving a beautifully straight smile without the challenge of traditional braces. The smile artists at DDC offer a solution that teens love. Invisalign® Teen uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners to help teeth gradually shift into place. Here's why teens at DDC prefer the Invisalign® experience:

1. Appearance

A teenager's appearance plays a big role in how they perceive themselves. Traditional braces for an adolescent, although sometimes necessary for more serious alignment issues, may cause them to be self-conscious about their smile. With the clear and virtually invisible aligners with Invisalign®, teens can achieve beautifully straight teeth without metal brackets and wires.

2. No Limits on Activities

Because the aligners are removable, they allow teens to engage in athletic and musical activities that traditional braces may alter. By simply removing the aligners, teens can play sports without fear of getting a cut lip or a bloody mouth from their wire braces. Playing certain musical instruments can also be a struggle with traditional metal braces, but Invisalign® removes any barrier to your teen becoming the next great musician.

3. No Limits on Food

Unlike food restrictions that may accompany traditional braces, removable aligners allow teens to eat anything at anytime. Teens simply remove the aligners, eat what they want and replace the aligners when finished.

4. Comfort

As anyone who has experienced traditional braces will attest, they can be uncomfortable at times. Wires and brackets may push into the front or sides of the mouth. Broken wires may cause bleeding. Invisalign® is a comfortable solution because each aligner is custom designed to fit precisely over the teeth as it puts gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into place. At DDC we always make patient comfort a priority.

5. Brushing and flossing

Removable aligners allow brushing and flossing to continue normally without the special care needed with traditional braces. Teens simply remove the aligners, perform their regular oral hygiene tasks, and put the aligners back in place.

At DDC, we love to help teens discover their beautiful smile because we believe an unforgettable smile fuels the confidence of a young soul. Contact us today to learn more about Invisalign® Teen.
