What are the Benefits of Invisalign Teen?

Traditional braces at any age can be overwhelming and stressful. A teenager may find added stress in dealing with self-confidence and dealing with their peers. Dr. Scott Cold provides high-quality Invisalign Teen at Warm Family Dentistry in Salt Lake City, UT. The clear customized trays provide your teen with more comfort than traditional wire braces. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of Invisalign Teen.

  • Invisibility. Wire braces often pose a level of embarrassment for some youths. Teenagers are in a very delicate time of their lives. They are trying to figure themselves out and manage life amongst their peers. Invisalign Teen is made up of clear, plastic trays. They don’t interfere with speech like wire braces often do.
  • Fewer food restrictions. Metal braces can be damaged by a long list of food including popcorn, apples, gum, candies, and gummy foods. The brackets can easily get damaged and cause the wires to pop out. With Invisalign, you take out the trays to eat. This allows you to eat and enjoy whatever you want. This allows further protection to your trays as well.
  • Easier to care for. Cavities can easily form with traditional wires, meaning extra care and keeping needs to be maintained. Not giving proper care and time to this will leave your teen with damaged and decayed teeth. Invisalign requires minimal care. Simply take the aligners out and gently brush them. Stick to your regular brushing and flossing routine.
  • Less painful. Traditional wire braces can cause much discomfort and pain especially after frequent adjustments and visits to the orthodontist. Invisalign doesn’t cut, scrape, or damage your mouth.

You may be thinking to yourself “Are there any disadvantages?”. The most common complaint is found when patients don’t properly follow their treatment plan. Easily popping out the aligners makes leaving them out easy. Talk to your dentist in Salt Lake City and see if Invisalign Teen can work for you! Are you ready to set up a visit?
