There’s a reason that our teenage years are often known as our “awkward” stage. We all try to hide our class pictures in fear of seeing those bad-haircuts and acne-ridden skin. Now that you have a family of your own, your children may be navigating the hormone-infested waters of teenagehood. If your teen needs orthodontic treatment, Invisalign may be the perfect alternative to traditional braces.
Life Isn’t Put on Hold
If your teen has braces and wants to join band or take up football, those braces will need to be accounted for. Wind or brass instruments will pose a whole new challenge, and high impact hits from sports may damage their appliance. With this in mind, many teens avoid these activities. With Invisalign, they can join all of the extracurriculars they want and not skimp out on their school experience.
Give Them Something to Work For
While handing over this responsibility to your teen can be daunting at first, the end results can be incredibly rewarding. Invisalign is a process that needs to be followed. In this way, your teen can see the physical results of their efforts. There is nothing more fulfilling than knowing that you have worked for something and that it paid off.
They Gain the Confidence to Smile
A great smile doesn’t just look good; it makes you feel good, too! Studies have shown that not only do we smile when we are happy, but that smiling can actually make us happy. Clear aligners make it that much easier for your teen to share their grin. The more they smile, the happier they will be. Imagine if your teen felt comfortable enough to smile during their orthodontic treatment and not just afterwards.
Give your teen responsibility without taking away their freedom, you’ll discover just how good it feels to see them smile! Pick up the phone today and book an appointment with us, and let’s get started on Invisalign treatment for your teen!
