Invisalign For Teens
As a Teen or the Parent of a Teen we know that you are looking for a simple way to straighten your teeth without putting your life on hold. A recent study, see infographic , confirmed what we already knew, crooked teeth often give the wrong impression about a person. Whether you're looking for your first job or first date, a beautiful smile is important. With Invisalign Teen®, you can straighten your teeth without metal wires and brackets getting in the way of your school, sports, music, and social activites. You’re free to enjoy the things that make these the best times of your life.
No One Needs To Know
Invisalign Teen aligners are made of a smooth clear plastic that is virtually invisible! Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth of metal, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day.
Invisalign Teen Differences
Invisalign Teen is the same product as Invisalign with a few key differences:
- compliance indicators to gauge approximate wear time
- power ridges for lingual root torque of upper front teeth
- eruption tabs to compensate for the fact that not all teeth may be fully in
- six replacement aligners to reduce the worry over lost aligners
Also, when selecting an orthodontist, please consider that while Invisalign Teen is essentially the same appliance as regular Invisalign, it is being used on a younger patient and a greater level of experience with growth and development becomes essential.
Are you ready to take the next step?
If you’ve had braces yourself, you already know the issues associated with metal wires and brackets. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so your teen can play sports without the worry of being hit in the mouth by a ball, which can cause real damage in braces. They can also continue playing musical instruments properly, without braces getting in the way. With braces, there is a long list of foods your teen shouldn’t eat, from popcorn to apples and raw carrots. With Invisalign, there are no such restrictions. The removable aligners make it easy to brush and floss normally to maintain proper oral hygiene.
