Why Invisalign Teen Is So Popular with Teenagers

Have you heard about the clear alternative to metal braces called Invisalign® Teen? See how these clear braces fit a teen’s life and needs.

How Invisalign Teen Is Clearly Different

Invisalign Teen is a completely clear form of braces that helps teens straighten their teeth easily and effectively. These clear braces feature a series of customized clear aligners that gradually move a teen’s teeth into the proper place. A teen must wear the clear aligners for around 22 hours each day and see their Invisalign provider every two weeks for a brand new set. Since clear braces appear completely clear and don’t have noticeable metal brackets and wires, they’re a much more attractive alternative to metal braces for teens.

The Clear Advantages

Invisalign Teen offers all of the dental benefits of traditional metal braces, yet with many more social and personal advantages for teens. These clear braces can straighten teeth and correct dental problems as effectively as metal braces, yet don’t affect a teen’s daily activities, eating, dental hygiene, or confidence. As a result, Invisalign Teen is a popular alternative to metal braces. Some of the biggest benefits include:

  • As effective as metal braces for mild to severe dental issues, such as overbite, underbite, overcrowding, and gaps between teeth
  • Less difficulty eating, brushing, and flossing since clear braces must be removed during these activities
  • None of the eating restrictions of metal braces
  • No self-consciousness about wearing braces

Tips on Treatment

Believe it or not, teens generally wear Invisalign Teen for the same amount of time as metal braces. Plus, the costs are rather comparable. Yet since every case is different, your teen’s treatment time must be determined by your Invisalign provider. And the overall costs will depend on the severity of the conditions and the geographic location of treatment.
