From school and homework to dating and extracurricular activities, you’ve got a lot on your plate. It’s unlikely getting metal braces is at the top of your to-do list. After all, the last thing you need is to worry about being a “metal mouth” in your class pictures.
With Invisalign Teen available through Speaks Orthodontics — an Invisalign Premier Preferred Provider in Denver — you can get the straight teeth you’ve always wanted without metal brackets and wires holding you back. Work toward a healthier smile with all the advantages of Invisalign Teen!
Keep it a Secret
Normal braces are comprised of wires and brackets that move your teeth into the right position. Invisalign Teen accomplishes this same task with smooth, transparent plastic aligners. Your friends probably won’t even notice you’re wearing them unless you point them out. Instead of hesitating to smile, you can glow with confidence while wearing your aligners, including during class pictures.
Don’t Give Up Your Hobbies
If you’re the star quarterback, a mouth full of metal could be enough to put your game on hold. If you’re a musician, braces could also keep you from being able to play a woodwind or brass instrument. Invisalign Teen won’t hold you back so you can continue pursuing your passions while working toward a healthier smile.
Eat What You Want
Do you have friends who can’t chew gum or always turn down popcorn at the movies because they wear braces? They’re wise to follow their orthodontist’s instructions about restricting their diet, but what a drag! Since Invisalign trays are removable, you can eat whatever you want without worrying about damaging your orthodontic appliance. This means you can eat all the corn on the cob, whole apples, caramel and chewy breads you want with confidence.
Brush and Floss Easier
Wearing braces increases the chance of tooth decay because food particles can become lodged between the wires and your teeth. This makes brushing and flossing that much more important while wearing braces. At the same time, brushing and flossing with metal braces is a pain in the neck. You need a special toothbrush and stiff floss you can weave through the wires to floss between each individual tooth.
These concerns don’t exist with Invisalign Teen. Yes, you should still brush and floss diligently, but the ability to remove the aligners allows you to take care of your teeth like normal.
Do your friends with braces carry around a little container of wax in case a rogue bracket or wire starts irritating their mouth? Sores and ulcers are commonplace with metal braces, but not so with Invisalign Teen. Sure, you experience a little discomfort with each new tray as your teeth shift a little closer to the right position, but you’ll never have to worry about metal components digging into your cheeks.
Enjoy Effective Results
When it comes to fixing the most common teeth-straightening issues, Invisalign Teen can be just as effective as traditional braces. The aligners are removable, so it’s up to you to make sure you wear them at least 20 to 22 hours per day for the treatment to be effective. It’s also important to note that a few more complex conditions, such as those involving teeth rotation, height changes or closing extraction spaces may not be treatable with Invisalign.
The benefits of Invisalign are undeniable! Your parents will also appreciate the fact that Invisalign Teen is available at a comparable cost to traditional braces.
