Invisalign for Teens
Teenagers are often reluctant to have important orthodontic treatment as they can be self-conscious about their appearance, but they don't have to worry about this any longer. Invisalign's clear plastic aligners are suitable for teenagers, so our younger patients can enjoy the results of great orthodontic treatment without any impact on their lifestyle.
Make your teen smile
Invisalign aligners for teenagers are much the same as Invisalign aligners for adults. Using a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to your teen's teeth, these aligners look like thin sports mouthguards. Designed to fit snugly over your teen's teeth, each set of aligners gently guides their teeth into the correct position over the course of treatment. Your teen will receive a new set of aligners which should be worn between 20-22 hours a day for optimal results. To help teenagers keep on top of their treatment, a blue dot wear indicator can be fitted to the aligners so track wear-time.
Make your child smile
You may not have a teenager in the house yet, but that doesn’t mean your child should miss out on great orthodontic treatment. Oral health professionals recommend children have an early orthodontic consultation between the ages of 7 and 11. This helps to break down fears of visiting the dentist and encourages a proactive approach to treatment.
If your child is presenting with issues affecting the development of their teeth and jaws, they may be able to benefit from Invisalign First aligners, which are designed as a preliminary treatment option. Our specialist orthodontist can determine whether your child needs orthodontic treatment at an early consultation.
2 great benefits of Invisalign Teen
Virtually invisible: The greatest benefit of Invisalign for our teen patients is the aligners are virtually invisible. The clear plastic the aligners are made of means they aren't noticeable when worn.
Gentle pressure: Each set of Invisalign aligners is custom-made to your teen's teeth. This means they respond to the natural movement of your teen's teeth, thus reducing the discomfort your teen will experience throughout treatment.
