Invisible teeth-straightening can be a great option for teens, who tend to be especially concerned about appearance and don’t want to look different from their peers. Invisalign has created a system that addresses the special needs of teenage patients. Invisalign Teen can be a great “clear braces” (or invisible braces) option for teens shying away from traditional metal braces.
Invisalign Teen is Similar to Invisalign
The basics of Invisalign Teen are identical to regular Invisalign, except that space is left in the clear plastic aligners to accommodate adult molars that haven’t yet come in. For photo ops and important events in a teen’s life, the aligners can be temporarily removed. “Compliance monitors” (blue markings that fade with time) track wearing time, assuring that each set of aligners is worn long enough to move the teeth before switching to the next set. Finally, parents will be reassured to know that the Invisalign Teen package includes a provision for replacement aligners in case of loss.
With Invisalign Teen, there’s no need to feel self-conscious because you can’t join in with whatever your friends are doing. When everyone else is reaching for crunchy snacks, you don’t have to say no—you simply pop out your aligners. You don’t need to worry that taking part in your favorite sport might damage your braces—or that playing an instrument in the school band might actually be painful because of the metalwork in your mouth. Invisalign gives you the freedom to enjoy being a teen!
Invisalign Uses a 3-D Image to Create BPA-free Plastic Trays
Invisalign uses a digital 3-D image of your mouth to create BPA-free plastic trays that fit right over the teeth. Each set (upper and lower) is worn for about two weeks, and then a new set takes over to move the teeth a little farther toward an improved new alignment. And all the while, most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing the aligners.
