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 version for teenagers, Invisalign Teen, ensures great results without any impact on lifestyle.
How does Invisalign Teen work?
Invisalign Teen works in much the same way as the full Invisalign treatment. 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 - your teen receives a new set every two weeks - gently guides their teeth into the correct position over the course of treatment. The aligners should be worn between 20-22 hours a day, so to help teenagers keep on top of their treatment each set of aligners features a blue dot wear indicator.
3 great benefits of Invisalign Teen
Virtually invisible: The greatest benefit of Invisalign Teen is the aligners are virtually invisible. The clear plastic they are made out of means they aligners aren't noticeable when worn.
Removable: Another benefit of the aligners is that they are removable. This means your teen can take them out for eating, brushing and flossing, ensuring they can keep up with their oral hygiene routine. They can also be removed for playing sports or musical instruments and for photos.
Gentle pressure: Each set of Invisalign Teen 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.
