Invisalign is a clear, invisible way to straighten your teeth. It’s been called the best-kept secret in dentistry, and it’s not surprising why. The process can be completed within one year, and many patients find that the treatment is more comfortable than traditional braces or other orthodontic devices. But what about teens? Teens who are just coming into their own and want to feel good about themselves? Here are a few reasons why Invisalign can boost your teen’s self-esteem.

1. Teens Don’t Have To Hide Their Smiles Anymore

Before Invisalign, teens who needed orthodontic treatment would often feel embarrassed about the appearance of their teeth and even avoid smiling so as not to draw attention to their crooked or crowded teeth. But with invisibility, they can show off a beautiful smile without feeling self-conscious.

2. No More Embarrassment About Their Appearance In School Photos

You know what they say, “a picture is worth 1,000 words,” and with the teen years come many opportunities for pictures to be taken of your child at school events, sporting activities, family picnics, etc., where teeth are prominently displayed. Thanks to Invisalign Teen, your teen no longer has to worry about hiding their teeth or having crooked tooth photos that are embarrassing for them.

3. Teens Can Now Fully Participate In After-School Activities

As parents, you know how important it is for your child to have sports equipment, the best creams and lotions for their skin, and a new backpack to gear up for school without feeling self-conscious. But what you may not know is that kids with braces often miss out on these types of activities because of the potential damage they can cause or because they are too embarrassed to wear appliances in public. But with Invisalign, your teen can join in on after-school activities without feeling self-conscious.

4. It’s A Great Investment In Your Teen’s Future

It’s one thing to feel good about yourself, but having straight teeth makes it much easier for your teen to get a job or even take part in an audition or role that requires them to have great oral health.

Invisalign, a family of transparent aligners, has helped over 5 million individuals, including 1 million teenagers, achieve straight teeth in a comfortable, convenient, and affordable way (per Roberts and de Marsche). If you think your teenager would be a good candidate for Invisalign, contact the friendly team at Today’s Orthodontics to schedule your appointment.
