Invisalign is a great alternative to metal braces. It is recommended for patients of all ages, but it is especially popular with children and teenagers. School-aged patients tend to respond very well to Invisalign treatment, therefore, at myORTHODONTIST in Calgary, we frequently encourage parents to consider this option.
Appearance is one of the biggest benefits of Invisalign for teenagers, as many are quite sensitive about their smile and are reluctant to wearing braces during middle school and high school. What’s great about Invisalign is that the aligner trays are made from a proprietary clear material that doesn’t stand out as much as traditional braces do.
Teenagers are always in a hurry. Between sports, school, and other extracurricular activities, they can be very busy! It’s not surprising for them to miss essential maintenance steps in their orthodontic treatment plan here and there. Invisalign treatment requires less maintenance than traditional braces, and they are removable, so it is easier to clean the trays and the teeth.
- Shorter Visits to The Orthodontist
Orthodontic clinic visits are typically shorter and less frequent for Invisalign patients than for those with traditional braces. A shorter appointment is something every teenager and parent can appreciate.
