Why is Invisalign® Great for Teens?
• Big Smiles for School Pictures
• Fewer Restrictions and Maintenance
• Increased Level of Comfort

Big Smiles for School Pictures
Few things are more important than a bright smile. Teenagers who wear braces are a lot less likely to smile big for photographs. Additionally, Invisalign® braces are virtually undetectable. Teenagers can smile proudly in their school pictures. There is absolutely no reason to be embarrassed when wearing Invisalign®. Teenagers have enough embarrassing things to worry about as it is!
Fewer Restrictions and Maintenance
Traditional braces put a lot of restrictions and limitations on wearers. There are so many foods that traditional brace-wearers just can’t eat. There is also a lot of maintenance involved braces too. Invisalign® is incredibly low-maintenance and don’t put a lot of restrictions on the wearers. The aligners can easily be popped out for meals and put back in after.
Increased Level of Comfort
Invisalign® is so much more comfortable than metal braces. Metal braces can actually cut the delicate tissue inside of the mouth. Invisalign® offers wearers gradual changes over time instead of the traditional “adjustment” visits necessary with braces.
Safe for Active Teens
Teenagers can be incredibly active. Many teenagers participate in some kind of sport too. Traditional braces and contact sports don’t mix. With traditional metal braces, even a light hit in a friendly game of touch football can lead to a split lip or loose bracket. Invisalign® aligners don’t have any sharp points or wires to hurt active teens.
There are so many fantastic reasons why Invisalign® braces are great for teenagers. What is more important than self-esteem during this difficult and tumultuous time? Teenagers need every advantage they can get. They won’t have to dread annual school pictures, and they will love how comfortable Invisalign® aligners are. Teenagers who wear Invisalign® have the freedom to eat their favorite foods, and the treatments usually don’t take any longer than they would with regular braces.
