For teenagers who need to have their teeth straightened, Invisalign Teen clear custom aligners are a more understated alternative to traditional braces.
Hearing that you need braces as a teen can be disheartening and may prevent you from many things, including eating the foods that you enjoy and participating in the activities that you desire.
If you are a teenager who requires orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth, Dr. Mostafa, our orthodontist at Okotoks Orthodontics, recommends Invisalign® Teen, an orthodontic treatment solution that offers convenience and flexibility among the other following reasons:
As we all know, our young adolescent years are some of the most difficult and self-conscious times of our lives. For teenagers, getting metal braces can be a big blow to their ego and make them more fixated on their appearance. Clear aligners are almost unnoticeable and allow teens to go about their lives with the same level of confidence that they’ve always had.
No Metal and Brackets
Invisalign Teen® aligners fit directly over the teeth without the use of any metal parts or wires. Not only does this benefit appearance, it also eliminates mouth irritation and potential gum and teeth damage that can come from loose wires or metal parts.
You Can Eat the Foods You Want
Invisalign Teen® aligners can be removed anytime, which means you can continue to enjoy the foods you love. With traditional braces the wires can be damaged by eating foods such as corn on the cob and apples, with clear braces you can still enjoy all of your favorite foods and not risk sidelining the effectiveness of corrective treatment.
Easier Brushing and Flossing
Instead of investing in an interdental toothbrush and having to adapt your brushing to metal braces, Invisalign Teen® clear aligners are removed prior to brushing and flossing and allow for easier teeth cleaning.
More Free Time
Invisalign® Teen aligners don’t need to be tweaked as often. This means fewer appointments and more free time for teens to participate in the activities that they enjoy.
For teens that need more freedom, Invisalign® Teen aligners are a great choice and are recommended from our team at Okotoks Orthodontics.
