Why Invisalign is a Great Option for Teens
Many providers refuse to prescribe Invisalign for teens on the grounds that teens won’t comply with the treatment protocol. At Adirondack Orthodontics, we know there are plenty of mature, responsible teenagers who can follow the Invisalign treatment protocol just fine. Our treatment is patient-directed, so if you and your teen believe they can handle Invisalign, then your teen can have Invisalign.
Invisalign has many benefits for teens. The clear aligners allow your teen to play sports and musical instruments without interruption or inconvenience. Plus, without a mouth full of metal, your teen will feel more confident in their smile and personal appearance.
Your teen will also have complete freedom when it comes to food. Their friends with braces often have to go months or years without chewing a stick of gum or enjoying some popcorn at the movies. Not your teen! All they have to do is remove the aligners when eating, then carefully brush and floss before putting them back in. Your teen can go on enjoying his or her favorite foods with no problem!
