Many teenagers are affected by malocclusions that need to be corrected. However, the thought of going through high school with braces may be your teen’s worst nightmare.
Luckily, Invisalign Teen® can be very helpful. Your teenager can get the smile that he or she deserves without bulky wires and brackets.
Invisalign Teen® uses clear aligners, so nobody will even know they are wearing them. As long as your teenager wears them for at least twenty-two hours a day, they will get proper treatment without the embarrassment of wires and braces.
Even better, your teenager will be able to remove the aligners when it is time to eat, allowing them unlimited food choices. There are no restrictions that usually come with braces, like avoiding corn on the cob. Once they are finished eating, however, it is essential to brush their teeth AND the aligners to ensure fresh breath and a healthy mouth.
Invisalign Teen offers all of the advantages of Invisalign in addition to the following:
- Blue dot markers to give an estimate of wear time. They will fade if the aligners are worn enough time (around 20-22 hours a day).
- Adjustments made in the aligners to allow for the eruption of permanent teeth so that treatment can be started earlier.
- An allowance for 6 free replacement aligners if they are accidentally lost.
