Dr Kavendra Naidoo discusses the differences with Invisalign® vs. traditional braces for teens.

The cost of orthodontics is relatively the same, whether teens gets braces or Invisalign®. What can make it less expensive is choosing at-home aligners.

School attendance is something to consider. Invisalign requires less appointments because the space between is larger. With traditional braces, some patients need to be seen every 2-4 weeks.

When it comes to appearance, nothing beats Invisalign®. Keep this in mind when comparing Invisalign® vs. traditional braces for teens. The aligners are clear, so hardly anyone will notice that they are wearing them. The biggest aesthetic benefit is that as their teeth begin to move, their smile will look better. Being able to see an improvement quickly will help teens feel encouraged to keep up with the process.

One of the biggest concerns for teens is that wearing orthodontics will impact their daily diet. Most younger patients are fairly particular in what they eat and have favorite foods like pizza, hamburgers, sandwiches and popcorn etc. Invisalign is removed when eating so this is not an issue.

Another factor to compare when evaluating Invisalign® vs. traditional braces for teens is oral hygiene. When wearing braces, the risk for decay naturally goes up because it is harder to keep teeth clean. With Invisalign®, the aligners come out while brushing so their oral hygiene routine can remain virtually the same. The only slight difference is that the aligners need to be brushed with warm water and a soft toothbrush before being put back in.

After braces. Once teenagers are done wearing Invisalign or traditional braces they will need to wear a retainer. Without this, teeth can revert back to their old position. What teens love about Invisalign is that they are so used to wearing their aligners, a retainer will not seem like a big deal.
