Invisalign for Teens in Baldwinsville is the #1 alternative to metal braces. Please read below for our list of pros of Invisalign
No banned foods
Most teens’ favorite thing about Invisalign is that they don’t have to give up their favorite foods. Because the aligners have to be removed before eating, there are no food restrictions.
Teens with traditional braces follow a restricted diet to avoid damaging wires and brackets. Many favorites are on this banned foods list, like gum and stick, chewy treats. Unfortunately, some teens ignore this and damage their braces, lengthening their treatment time.
When choosing Invisalign, you can eat what you want. Be sure to brush after each meal to avoid staining the aligners. And remember to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day.
Invisalign for teens is virtually invisible.
Most teens avoid getting braces because they feel unattractive and are self-conscious with all that metal on their teeth.
Invisalign for teens offers the same ending results as metal braces but without being noticeable. Invisalign aligners are made of thin, transparent plastic, so they’re practically invisible. Most teens feel more comfortable in their social life choosing Invisalign because they are subtle and go unnoticed by friends.
Less treatment time
Invisalign treatment delivers the same results as braces in less time. Who wants to be stuck with metal in their mouth for several years when the average treatment time for Invisalign is one year to 18 months? Choosing Invisalign Teen instead of braces can reduce treatment time by ten months.
Although traditional metal braces effectively straighten teeth, some people find Invisalign more comfortable. Invisalign uses a series of plastic aligners to move the teeth gradually. There are no brackets and wires that poke you.
Traditional braces with metal brackets have sharp edges and poking wires that irritate your cheeks. Invisalign edges are smooth. Braces also need to be tightened regularly. With Invisalign, you are given multiple sets of aligners every two weeks. Each aligner slightly moves your crooked teeth into the desired position.
Easy to clean
Invisalign is removable, so you get to keep your regular oral hygiene routine. Although, bacteria can still get trapped inside your trays if you don’t brush and floss before putting in the trays.
Better oral hygiene
There is no way to stress the importance of keeping your teeth clean during orthodontic treatment. It’s a huge deal. With Invisalign, teens can remove their aligners, brush, and floss as if they weren’t even undergoing treatment.
Some patients with braces have a slight discoloration where the metal brackets are glued. There is only a tiny chance of tooth discoloration from braces. Still, you can avoid it altogether with Invisalign because the aligners are removable.
