3 Reasons Invisalign® Braces Are a Great Choice for Your Teen

Invisalign® braces are the new trend when it comes to teeth alignment, and with good reason! The teeth aligners are virtually invisible, especially when compared to their metal counterparts, but that's not the only reason more and more people of all ages in Calgary are choosing Invisalign® over traditional braces.

Here are the top 3 reasons Invisalign® makes sense for your teenager if he or she needs braces.

1. Invisalign® braces really are almost invisible

We've mentioned it already but it's worth repeating, Invisalign® braces are almost imperceptible; they don't even compare to metal braces. Think about all the pictures your teenager takes every day; with Invisalign® braces, they'll have the confidence to smile right through all of them.

Invisalign® was created to give teens and adults a discreet way to straighten their teeth and this is still the best reason to opt for Invisalign® in Calgary. But while that might be the best reason, it's certainly not the only one.

2. Easy to brush and floss

Metal braces can turn simple oral hygiene into a recurring nightmare; bits of food constantly getting stuck in hard-to-reach places make it difficult to maintain a clean mouth for the entire duration of the treatment. Fortunately for your teen, there's a better option: thanks to Invisalign® braces in Calgary, eating, brushing and flossing during orthodontic treatments can be as easy as ever. Invisalign® braces are removable, which means that your teen will never have to face the frustrating task of trying to clean around metal braces (and you won't be stuck searching for special tools and floss!). Getting your teeth aligned as a teenager is tough enough as it is; Invisalign® just makes the process that much easier.

3. Your teen doesn't have to give up any foods they love

One of the biggest drawbacks of metal braces is how easy they are to damage. The list of foods that can send you and your child to the orthodontist for an emergency visit includes:

  • Apples
  • Gum
  • Popcorn
  • Nuts
  • Bagels
  • Candies
  • And more

It's usually recommended to give up many types of food when you get metal braces, but that's not the case for Invisalign. Because they're removable, your teen can eat any foods on the above list without worrying about damaging their aligners.

When you add it all up there's really no good reason not to choose Invisalign® braces in Calgary. Your teen can still eat all the foods that they like, clean their teeth without any hassle, and best of all, keep smiling and living their life as though they weren't even getting their teeth straightened at all.
