For teens in particular, Invisalign offers many advantages. If you’re thinking about getting Invisalign Teen in Huntington, NY, here’s a quick look at what you can look forward to.

Invisalign Teen lets you stay active

Traditional metal braces can be a pain—literally. With wires that can become loose and poke the soft tissues in your mouth, playing sports can be problematic. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic. They are comfortable, and teens never have to worry about getting poked with stray wires or breaking the brackets if they get hit in the face with a soccer ball. There are absolutely no restrictions on sports or other activities with Invisalign Teen.

Invisalign doesn’t require as many office visits

Teens who are undergoing treatment with traditional metal braces are constantly in and out of the orthodontist’s office. The average patient with metal braces needs to be seen about every four weeks during the course of the treatment. Invisalign makes the process easier and more convenient. Teens and their parents only need to visit the dentist’s office every six to eight weeks to check on the progress and pick up the new batch of Invisalign aligners.

Invisalign lets you eat and drink whatever you want

Teens who get metal braces at an orthodontist’s office come home with a long list of dos and don’ts. Popcorn, apples, caramel, bagels, nuts, and even carrots are all on the “don’t” list. And don’t even think about chewing gum. Teens who dare to challenge these restrictions often find themselves back at the orthodontist’s office to get the broken brackets or loose wires fixed.

Invisalign Teen changes all that. There’s no need to worry about food restrictions because there aren’t any. You’ll take out the aligners before you eat, and brush your teeth before popping the aligners back in. As long as you wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, you’ll still be on track with your treatment plan.

Invisalign Teen promotes healthy, white teeth

If you have friends who have had metal braces, you might have heard some horror stories about how discolored their teeth were when the braces finally came off. It’s hard to keep the teeth clean when brackets and wires are in the way. But with Invisalign Teen, you can easily keep your teeth clean and white, since you’ll brush your teeth with the aligners out. Just remember to clean your aligners too.
