Why Invisalign Might Be Right For Your Teen
Our dentists here in Tampa are trained and experienced in using Invisalign. That means your teenager can get that beautiful straight smile without braces. However, typically our dentists in Tampa will suggest that adults receive Invisalign since they will have all their permanent teeth. But, if your teen is in their late teens/senior year, then they are more likely to have their permanent teeth. If you want to inquire about whether your teen is a good candidate for Invisalign, reach out and give us a call to schedule an appointment with our dentists here in Tampa.
So, why do teens prefer Invisalign?
Well, for starters many children get traditional braces in middle school. This is a great time to straighten your teeth because self-esteem usually doesn’t become an issue. Traditional braces are great for straightening your teeth at this age/stage in your life. But, what happens to children who don’t wear braces? They have to either wear braces later on in life or be content with that crooked smile. Luckily for your teen, they have another option: Invisalign.
With Invisalign, your teen can be confident in wearing clear aligners that won’t take a toll on their self-confidence. They can discreetly straighten their teeth without anyone noticing, except for noticing the stellar results!
Teens will also love the convenience of Invisalign. Traditional braces restrict the type of foods you can eat. Food can easily become stuck and can be a pain to clean. With Invisalign, you can enjoy all your favorite meals. The aligners are removable and therefore won’t cause food debris to be stuck in hard to reach spots.
Invisalign also allows for an easier cleaning. When it comes time to brush and floss your teeth, it really is a breeze. You simply remove the aligners and brush normally. Additionally, since food won’t get stuck like they do with traditional braces, your risk for cavities or teeth stains also decreases.
