Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know you’re having treatment, unlike traditional braces which are hard to miss.
What is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen is the version of this popular orthodontic treatment method designed specifically for teenagers. It uses the same custom-made, clear plastic aligners to move teeth into position, but comes with one main difference. The aligners are fitted with a blue-dot wear indicator which helps teenagers keep track of how often they’re wearing them. Just like the full version of Invisalign, the Teen version aligners must be worn 22 hours per day.
Will Invisalign impact on my lifestyle?
One of the main reasons so many teenage patients prefer Invisalign is because it’s a discreet treatment option that doesn’t interfere with a teen’s lifestyle. The aligners can be taken out, which means teens can continue to play sport and musical instruments and, for that all important prom night, they don’t have to worry about having photographs taken with braces on.
Why choose Invisalign?
There are many benefits to Invisalign as an orthodontic treatment, but for teens some of the main ones are:
They’re virtually invisible
They’re comfortable to wear
They get great results!
