A very large number of teens need braces. Invisalign made orthodontic therapy an option for adults who didn't want to feel like they were in high school again. When surveyed, most teens preferred Invisalign treatment over typical braces. Most of them cited the Invisalign braces as the preferred choice because no one can tell they are having braces.
Benefits of Invisalign
Dental hygiene is a definite plus when it comes to comparing Invisalign to traditional braces. Hear what a mother who has had children with both talk about her experience.
Invisalign and Sports
Traditional orthodontics require the person to wear protective mouthguards to minimize the damage to their teeth, but few children do because the mouthguard is not very comfortable. So with an elbow to the face and a mouthful of braces there is going to be lots of bleeding and pain. All responsible parents have made sure their children have a sports mouthguard. But that doesn't guarantee their child is wearing the mouthguard. With Invisalign Teen, your child is better protected by the simple fact of wearing their aligners. On top of that, if they wear their mouthguards on top of their aligners, that is another layer of protection. Watch the video below to learn more.
