Toluca Lake Invisalign Dentist Explains Why Teens Choose This Revolutionary Technology

Invisalign treatment is becoming more and more popular with cosmetic dentistry patients of all ages. However, one age group in particular gravitates toward Invisalign with a high degree of predictability—teenagers! Our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentists are going to be reviewing some of the key reasons that teenagers and young adult choose Invisalign. Let’s get started!

As you may already know, Invisalign treatment gives patients an alternative to traditional metal braces. The Invisalign system uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth, rather than using metal brackets and wires.

The number one reason that teenagers love Invisalign is that this treatment is incredibly discreet. When the patient is wearing his or her aligners, the aligner is practically invisible—Invisalign allows the patient’s smile to shine through during the treatment process.

Another benefit of Invisalign is that this treatment makes it very easy for you to care for your smile as you straighten your teeth. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners are completely removable. You will be able to take out these aligners to floss and brush your smile as usual. Our dental team will also be able to complete normal semi-professional dental cleanings to keep plaque and tartar at bay.

Finally, Invisalign is more comfortable than metal braces, and many teenagers report that this is very important to them. Because Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic, they do not irritate and cut oral tissues, as metal brackets and wires often do. Overall, it is just much easier to live with Invisalign, compared to conventional braces.
