Benefits of Teen Invisalign

By February 7, 2017Invisalign

Patients of all ages love Invisalign treatment, but there are a few benefits of this treatment that appeal to teenagers, in particular. Today our Manhattan Beach Invisalign dentists are explaining some of the reasons that young people choose Invisalign to perfect their smiles!

The first thing that sets Invisalign treatment apart from other cosmetic options is that Invisalign treatment is very discreet. Because the aligners we use to straighten teeth are made of clear plastic resin, they are practically invisible when in place over the patient’s teeth. Teenagers are able to straighten their teeth without marring their smiles with unsightly metal brackets and wires.

Another reason that young cosmetic patients love Invisalign is because this treatment makes it simple for patients to keep playing sports, taking part in activities (like band and choir), and to just generally keep up with their normal routines. This is one of the least obtrusive long-term treatments available in dentistry today. In fact, you’ll still be able to eat and drink all of your favorite things as you move through Invisalign treatment—you’ll simply take out your aligners at mealtimes.

Both parents and teenagers prefer Invisalign to traditional orthodontic treatment because Invisalign allows the patient to effectively clean his or her smile throughout the treatment process. We all know that it can be hard for people to floss and brush their teeth with metal brackets and wires in place. Invisalign aligners are completely removable, so you don’t have to maneuver around any cosmetic hardware. Plus, our dental team can easily refresh your smile at your semi-annual dental cleanings.

As you can see, Invisalign treatment offers a number of advantages for young and active cosmetic dental patients. If you want to learn more about how Invisalign works, and whether it may be right for you, please call our Manhattan Beach Invisalign dentists to get started!
