invisalign teen

Getting ready for back to school is more than just buying new pencils, notebooks, or a backpack. It is also helping kids feel comfortable about new changes and staying healthy as they grow. And with kids starting a new year, there are many new impressions to make. For many kids, those impressions can be socially difficult when they are self-conscious about having metal braces. But the good news is there is an alternative to that –Invisalign Teen offers clear braces that straighten teeth without “brace face”, so much that no one even has to know that they have them on.

invisalign teen exampleTake a look at this picture of these two teens. Can you guess which one has Invisalign Teen? Hard to tell, isn’t it? And that is the HUGE benefit to having clear braces. Here are some other benefits to consider:

  • They are removable, which is perfect for active teens because it won’t interfere with sports, music, or other activities.
  • It makes good oral hygiene with brushing/flossing simple and there are no forbidden foods, which means there are no emergencies at school
  • It costs about the same as regular metal braces.

My boys are young, but we are thinking they will probably need braces (or at least one of them will) – but I know that I want to get them Invisalign Teen when they do need them because of the huge benefits it offers. If you are in the market for braces (or will be soon), make sure you check them out.
