Can Teenagers Get Invisalign?

Posted on February 19, 2019

Today, more and more teens are opting for Invisalign orthodontic treatment over traditional metal braces. When Invisalign first came into the orthodontic field in 1998, there were many restrictions on what the treatment could and could not correct in terms of alignment and bite. The technology behind Invisalign has come a long way over the years, and is now able to treat a wide variety of orthodontic cases.

Here are some reasons teens are starting to make the switch from traditional braces to Invisalign:

No metal brackets or wires

Invisalign aligners are clear and almost invisible! Teens seem to love the idea that no one knows they are wearing them.

Less Appointments

During Invisalign treatment, we are able to go longer without an adjustment appointment since patients are switching out aligners on their own weekly. Appointment times are also shorter in length since there is no hardware in the mouth needing to be adjusted. This will prevent teens from missing unnecessary amounts of school, work, practice, etc.

Easier to brush, floss and eat!

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, brushing and flossing is much easier and requires less patience. Eating is also less challenging with Invisalign treatment because the aligners are removable. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign patients do not have to restrict there diet to avoid breaking or loosening brackets.
