Invisalign for Teens
Does your teenager need orthodontic treatment but dread spending their high school years as a “brace face”? They already have enough on their plate without feeling anxious over their smiles, which is why Invisalign for teens is the perfect solution.
Why Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen™ is specifically designed to address the unique needs and considerations of teenagers undergoing orthodontic treatment. However, both Invisalign Teen and Invisalign can effectively straighten teeth using clear aligners, offering the benefits of discreetness, removability, and improved oral hygiene compared to traditional braces.
Invisalign Teen accounts for the fact that teenagers may be more likely to misplace or damage their aligners. The treatment plan typically includes more replacement aligners at no additional cost. This allows for the flexibility to replace lost or damaged aligners during treatment.
Advantages of Invisalign for Teens
Besides straightening smiles, Invisalign for teens has several advantages over traditional braces:
- Aesthetic Appeal: Invisalign trays are virtually invisible, allowing teenagers to straighten their teeth discreetly. This can be particularly important for those who may feel self-conscious about wearing traditional metal braces.
- Removability: Invisalign trays are removable, allowing teenagers to take them out for special occasions, such as prom, school photos, or important social events. This feature enables teens to maintain their confidence and enjoy their favorite foods without the restrictions associated with braces.
- Improved Oral Hygiene: Invisalign allows teenagers to remove their aligners for brushing and flossing, promoting better oral hygiene than traditional braces. This can contribute to healthier teeth and gums during the orthodontic treatment process.
- Comfortable Experience: Invisalign trays are made from a smooth plastic material designed to fit comfortably over the teeth. There are no sharp edges or protruding wires to cause irritation or discomfort, which can be especially beneficial for active teenagers participating in sports or other physical activities.
- Fewer Orthodontic Visits: Invisalign treatment typically requires fewer in-person orthodontic visits compared to traditional braces. Teenagers and their parents can appreciate the convenience of fewer appointments and adjustments while still achieving effective teeth straightening results.
- Compliance Tracking: As an added advantage for parents, each Invisalign Teen aligner has a blue indicator that fades over time if your teen wears them as often as directed. These tools can help parents and orthodontists track a teenager’s adherence to wearing the aligners as prescribed, ensuring the treatment progresses smoothly and effectively.
