Invisalign for Teens in Michigan

What is invisalign for teens? What are the advantages?

Social media and social lives are changing the lifestyle of today’s teens. Teens would typically rather avoid the challenges that come with traditional braces, such as obvious appearance, the struggles that come with brushing and flossing, and the limiting of certain foods. Invisalign Teen is designed to address these challenges.

What is Invisalign for Teens?

Invisalign teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten a teenager’s teeth without the restrictions that come with traditional braces. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign Teen uses a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually shift all teeth into their new places.

What Are the Benefits?

There is a big aesthetic benefit. Because Invisalign is clear, it’s a less evident option, which highly appeals to teens who want to look their absolute best without braces getting in the way. Plus, because they are removable, they can be taken out for contact sports, family photos, and eating certain foods which would interfere with braces, like apples and popcorn (because what teen doesn’t love popcorn while watching a movie with friends?).

Also, because a wire is not in place, brushing and flossing is much easier. It is greatly beneficial for sports, because many injuries of the mouth are made much worse with braces. Not to mention how much easier it would be to play an instrument with a removable aligner if your teenager is involved with the school band. Most teens would rather have a comfortable and less obvious option than braces to go with their ever-increasingly busy social lives, and Invisalign Teen is the perfect solution.
