Invisalign isn't just for adults; it's also a great orthodontic treatment option for self-conscious teenagers. And, what's more, the manufacturers behind the hugely successful and virtually invisible Invisalign aligners have designed a series of aligners just for teenage patients.
What is Invisalign Teen?
Just like Invisalign, Invisalign Teen uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth into position, but the teen version comes with a blue dot wear indicator. This helps you and your teen keep track of how long the aligners have been worn. To get the best results from Invisalign aligners, they must be worn for the recommended 20-22 hours per day. If your teen wears them for this length of time, the blue dot will fade; if it doesn't, you know your teen needs to wear them for longer!
"My friends said my teeth looked really good. The whole experience was really good! I'd really recommend it."
Benefits of Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen comes with many benefits for our teenage patients. Because the aligners are removable, teens can take them out for sports practices, when playing musical instruments, and even on occasions such as going to the school ball. Removing the aligners for short periods of time won't affect your teen's treatment and, after all, the blue dot wear indicator will help keep them on track.
Another benefit of Invisalign Teen that provides peace of mind to parents is the aligners don't hinder teeth cleaning. All your teen needs to do is take them out for meals and for brushing and flossing. This means there's no excuse for them not to keep up their oral hygiene routine.
Treatment designed for teenagers
The manufacturers of Invisalign have done their research when it comes to the habits of teenagers. This is why if your teen is receiving a course of Invisalign treatment, they will get up to six replacement sets for those times when aligners go missing.
Add to this the fact that the aligners are virtually invisible so no-one will know your teen is wearing them and it's easy to see why Invisalign Teen is a preferred treatment option for teenagers.
