A survey was done on Teens as to the advantages of using clear aligners as invisible braces and the results were very interesting. But this information doesn’t just apply to teens – it really is applicable to anyone who is considering straightening their teeth.
Here’s what the survey found:
Isolation: 92% of teenagers say that traditional braces make them feel isolated from their peers.
Self-esteem: Twice as many teens using clear aligners experience a rise in self-esteem compared to teenagers wearing braces.
Effectiveness: Invisible braces are usually as effective as traditional braces for treating orthodontic conditions.
Cost: They end up costing about the same as braces.
Bullying: Teenagers are 68% less likely to be teased by other young people when wearing invisible braces.
Reliability: Teenagers are more reliable than adults in following the full protocols of invisible braces.
Confidence: 40% of teenagers say braces would have a negative impact on their self-confidence, but only 13% of those using invisible braces come to the same conclusion.
So as you can see, traditional braces have an impact, not only on your physical appearance, but also on your confidence and self esteem. Straightening your teeth can also give you a boost in self-confidence, but it takes time. So being able to straighten your teeth using clear aligners makes this process a lot more tolerable.
