These days it is almost a right of passage to teendom for kids to get braces. With kids being as active as they are these days, it is nice to have different options available for them that they feel comfortable with and that they feel good in.
Let’s face it; this is one of the most self conscious times in a teen’s life. They are at the stage where their appearance means the most to them and they are worried about every little detail. Knowing they have to get braces makes them more self conscious and they may feel that they can’t open their mouths for fear of having everyone see their teeth rimmed with metal and being called “metal mouth”. It is also very difficult trying to play certain musical instruments with regular wire braces which can make their participation in certain activities less enjoyable.
They are also more conscious of participating in sports for fear of getting smacked in the mouth – that can really hurt. Evan eating can be a pain – they have to be careful about what things they eat so they don’t get food caught in the wires, or worse break them. The adjustments that are made every few weeks can make their mouths very sore and uncomfortable for a few days which can lead to a decreased appetite. Not always great for kids at any age.
Enter Invisalign teen, a wonderful product that is both comfortable and durable.
Invisalignt teen fits an active teen’s life style and they’re easy to get used to. There are no wires or uncomfortable brackets poking or tearing the gums or the mouth
They are also inconspicuous (they are made of clear plastic) so teens are less conscious of their smile and it helps them to fit in better. They are also easier to take care of because they can be removed, so they are more hygienic. You can also eat anything without ever having to worry about getting food caught in the wires.
Invisalign teen is also great for busy parents because they never have to worry about getting in to see the orthodontist due to broken wires or brackets; it requires fewer appointment (because you get your sets in advance) and less chair time (for those uncomfortable tightenings)
Invisalign came out with this teen line this past summer – how I wish that they had been available when my daughter had her braces put on almost 2 years ago – would have been so much easier on her and me!
