Orthodontic treatment is practically a rite of passage, but it doesn’t have to make you stick out like a sore thumb during your teen years. With Invisalign Teen, you can get your perfect smile without anyone even realizing you’re in treatment.
What is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is the orthodontic treatment designed just for busy teens who want a discreet way to straighten their smiles. With a series of aligners that are worn 22 hours a day for 7-14 days each, your teeth will slowly be guided to their new locations.
What are the advantages to Invisalign Teen?
Your teen will love Invisalign treatment! It’s an ideal option for teens on the go who also want some discretion during their orthodontic treatment Invisalign Teen is:
- Comfortable – the aligners are made of a smooth plastic, and there are no brackets or wires to irritate the mouth
- Removable – You don’t have to avoid your favorite foods while in Invisalign treatment because the aligners are taken out when you eat and drink. And brushing and flossing is a breeze with no brackets and wires.
- Affordable – Invisalign costs are similar to the costs of standard braces and other treatment options.
How do I know if my teen is responsible enough for Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment does require a higher level of patient compliance because the system is removable. The aligners can only do the work needed to guide teeth when they are in the mouth, so it is important that your teen wears the aligners as indicated by their orthodontist. But don’t worry, Invisalign Teen has a built-in compliance system so you and the orthodontist will know if your teen isn’t wearing the aligners as they should.
