Reasons Your Teen Will Love Invisalign
We’ve said many times here at Lion Dental Practice that Invisalign is something of a revolutionary treatment for straight teeth. It’s transformed millions of patients the world over and right here in Stourbridge, and adults and teens of various ages have enjoyed having a brand new smile at the end of treatment.
Sometimes, though, teens can be a bit tentative about orthodontic treatment (and so can some adults!). When traditional metal braces used to be big and bulky, there was a bit of a stigma attached to wearing them. But orthodontics has come a long way in recent years, and Invisalign is a much more discreet kind of treatment that more and more teens are open to trying. Here are a few reasons our dentists think your teen will love our Invisalign braces in Stourbridge.
Ssh! Nobody needs to know…
We all know what kids are like on the playground and anything that’s ‘different’ can be a potential avenue for teasing. But with Invisalign, the clever clear brace, people can’t always tell that you’re having treatment. It’s ideal for the more self-conscious kids and can make them feel less of a ‘target’ while at school.
Access all foods
Teens can be picky eaters at the best of times, and with metal and wire braces, certain types of food can cause damage or at the very least, be difficult to clean off afterwards. Because Invisalign clear braces are removable, your teen can eat what they choose and not have to worry about affecting their treatment.
Time for prom? No problem!
The social calendar is so important for teens, especially as they juggle more and more responsibility and pressure from school with exams and grades to contend with. Our dentists in Stourbridge recommend Invisalign clear braces are worn for at least 20-22 hours per day, which means there’s some wiggle room for a night out or a special occasion. If you or your teen want more information on this, our dentists will be happy to chat with you.
Healthy teeth for life with Invisalign
We all make the health of our children our top priority, and that should include their smiles. Invisalign clear braces are known for treating a range of orthodontic problems, including gaps, crowding and bite problems – all of which could negatively impact their dental health if left untreated. In other words, Invisalign braces could help them have healthy teeth for life. Your teen may not be so concerned with oral health at such a young age, but there’s no doubt they’ll be thanking you for it later!
