If your teenager does not want to go through the embarrassment of having metal braces, talk to your dentist about getting Invisalign Teen. Metal braces can be uncomfortable to wear, and they can make you self-conscious about your smile. But Invisalign uses clear, smooth aligners to gradually straighten your teeth, so you do not have to go through the hassle of wearing traditional braces.
A big plus with the Invisalign system is that the aligners are completely removable, and you only need to wear them for 20-22 hours every day. This means you can remove Invisalign while you are eating, so there are no restrictions to your diet. You can also take them out while you brush and floss your teeth, so nothing will get in the way of your ability to maintain good oral hygiene.
Metal braces have a bad tendency to scrape against the inside of your cheeks, which can be uncomfortable if your teen participates in sports. But you will not feel a thing with Invisalign aligners in your mouth. Invisalign is just as effective at realigning teeth as other orthodontic methods, but it comes with so many extra benefits. Talk to your dentist to see if you qualify today.
