Teen Confidence and Invisalign

Teens enjoying Invisalign smileBeing a teen can be a difficult time filled with peer pressure, bullying and insecurity. In fact, many of the statistics surrounding teen years may shock you. According to statistics from ABC news, approximately 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying. Another study found that 40-70 percent of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body, and body satisfaction hits rock bottom between the ages of 12 and 15. With all of this in mind, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that teens don’t need another reason to feel insecure. Adding the stress of orthodontic treatment shouldn’t be another thing making teens’ lives more difficult. With Invisalign, teens can feel confident during treatment and enjoy a beautiful, confident smile once treatment is completed. Today, Dr. Steven Spitz is blogging from his practice in Pembroke, MA to explain how Invisalign Teen can improve confidence in teens.

Healthy, Confident Smiles for Teens

According to Kelton Research, nearly 2.4 million teens are most self-conscious about their teeth. Those who want to fix their dental imperfection including gaps, overcrowding or misalignment, are often discouraged because they believe that metal braces are the only option available. Luckily, Invisalign is the perfect solution for teens who want to achieve a perfect smile without the hassle associated with traditional braces.

Confidence during treatment: A Kelton Research study found that teens wearing Invisalign clear aligners are two times more likely to have a boost in self-esteem while in treatment than teens treated with traditional metal braces. The key to the success of Invisalign for teens is the clear, removable aligners. The aligners are nearly invisible so most people won’t even realize you’re going through treatment. 92% of teens feel that wearing metal braces would keep them from fitting in with their peers. Teens won’t have to worry about what their peers say about orthodontic treatment because most won’t even realize they’re wearing the aligners.

Confidence after treatment: Teens will not only be comfortable with their smile during treatment, but they will be able to enjoy their newly perfected smile for the rest of their lives. Patients that complete Invisalign treatment can avoid the embarrassment of crooked teeth. In fact, nearly three in five teens believe having crooked teeth is embarrassing for most people in their age group.
