As everyone knows, the teenage years are typically a time of significant physical and emotional development. In addition to acquiring a more adult appearance, the teen years are a time of heightening self-awareness, building self-confidence, and an ever-growing investment in peer relationships.
For adolescents, teeth that are crooked, gapped, crowded, or protruding can potentially impact their self-image as well as their self-esteem. Furthermore, untreated malocclusions can predispose teens to TMJ issues, headaches, and dental disease.
Despite the desire for a beautiful and well-aligned smile, today’s teens are far more image conscious than previous generations. How they look to peers on social media, and other online platforms can factor into their preferences for orthodontic care. Given the choice between conventional braces and clear, removable aligners, most prefer the latter.
Clear, low profile, and practically invisible, Invisalign aligners transform smiles with minimal interference to a teen’s daily routine or activities.
With Invisalign aligners, teens can still enjoy eating all their favorite foods and engage in sports without the fear of breaking their orthodontic appliances or sharp poking wires. Furthermore, since the aligners are completely removable: toothbrushing, flossing, and practicing good oral hygiene are also much easier!
