Invisalign for teens
Invisalign’s major advantage is that it is an aesthetically pleasing, nearly invisible and more convenient way to offer teens self-esteem through a good smile. Invisalign aligners, unlike traditional brackets, are very convenient, removable and nearly invisible. This means that teens can continue to enjoy their lives during treatment without being limited, having discomfort or engaging in restraint due to wearing metal appliances.
Invisalign aligners are removable, and so teens can continue to brush their teeth and use dental floss just as they have always done. This can lead to better oral health in the future.
Invisalign Teen was developed for teens, parents and orthodontists who understand teen patients’ active lifestyles and unique treatment needs.
Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same technology as Invisalign aligners. They are designed to more the teeth gradually, with no need for metal appliances or wires.
However, since teens (and their mouths) are in constant motion, Invisalign added some special features:
- compliance indicatorsthat change from blue to transparent so that the orthodontist, parents and teen can calculate the amount of time the aligners have been used, and the teen can use them more if needed.
- Special features to compensate for the eruption of the canines, second premolars and second molars.
- Six individual replacement aligners to replace individual aligners that may be broken or lost.
