Brackets and wires don’t need to get in your way as you straighten your teeth. You can live your life and enjoy your teenage years while continuing to flash your grin. Invisalign aligners are a great orthodontic treatment option for teens for so many different reasons. They’re comfortable to wear, virtually invisible, removable, effective and they fit in with a teen’s lifestyle.
Palo Alto Orthodontics believes in treating orthodontic issues early so that Invisalign can be an option in adolescence, even in cases where it wouldn’t have been in the past, like with underbites and crossbites. Come in for a consultation to see if Invisalign is right for your smile.
It Can Be Your Secret
Invisalign aligners are made from clear, smooth, flexible plastic so they’re virtually invisible. Most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. We know having a mouthful of metal makes some people feel self-conscious but since Invisalign is free of brackets and wires, you can smile all throughout treatment.
Eat What You Love
Unlike your friends who are wearing braces, you can still continue to munch on popcorn, pizza crust and whole apples. The aligners are removable so there are no food restrictions. You’ll take them out to brush and floss as well which allows you to keep your teeth clean and healthy without any extra effort.
Not only are Invisalign aligners extremely comfortable, the lack of hardware means they won’t cut your lips or cheeks like braces can if you happen to have an accident while playing sports or while you’re trying to hit a note on your instrument. You can go on with your busy lifestyle and hobbies without any worries.
