Teenagers live an active lifestyle. They’re always busy with schoolwork, hanging out with friends, playing sports and enjoying other activities. When it comes to straightening their teeth, they don’t like the idea of wearing conventional braces with brackets and wires. They find it inconvenient to wear and tough to maintain. It’s good to know that your Texas dentist offers Invisalign for Teens, an advanced teeth straightening system that offers the benefits of wearing braces without the added drawbacks. Invisalign Teen is made up of a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn over a patient’s teeth in order to correct misalignment. Each set is used for a period of two weeks and then the patient will change into another pair until the desired position of the teeth is achieved. This revolutionary orthodontic device comes with several benefits that can’t be matched by traditional braces.

Invisalign Teen will not greatly affect your child’s daily activities as it can be removed when necessary. Your teens can take it out when they need to eat, brush, and floss. They can enjoy any type of food without worrying about the debris that may be trapped between their teeth because it can be cleaned after meals. Unlike braces, there are no food restrictions, which mean that their diets will not be limited to soft foods.

Maintaining their oral hygiene is easy because they can simply pop it out before brushing and then pop it back afterwards. Your youngster can easily remove it when he/she needs to participate in a game, play a musical instrument, or attend an event.

Best of all Invisalign Teen is virtually invisible. Patients can smile confidently without drawing much attention to his/her teeth. The appliance is custom-made for your child and fits snugly and comfortably over the teeth. The BPA-free plastic aligners won’t cause irritation, and since there are no wires or brackets, your teens won’t have to worry about injuring his gums or the insides of their mouths.

This cutting-edge technology is also effective for solving dental problems such as gaps, overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites.
