Invisible Braces for Teens
Straightening your teeth with Invisalign can be a great option for teens who are concerned about their appearance and don’t want to look different from their friends.
Invisalign created a system that meets the special needs of our teenage patients. Invisalign Teen can be a great clear 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 you'll have space left in your clear plastic aligners to make room for your adult molars that haven’t yet come in.
You can even take them out any time you pose for a photo. 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 Aligners
Invisalign uses a digital 3-D image of your mouth to create BPA-free plastic aligners 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.
All the while, most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing the aligners.
