What Is Invisalign Teen and Why Is It So Popular?
Invisalign Teen is made by Align Technology – the same maker of regular Invisalign. Like regular Invisalign, Invisalign Teen uses a series of clear, removable aligners custom-made for each patient to move teeth into their ideal position. There are no metal wires or brackets used with Invisalign Teen. This means there is nothing present to poke or irritate the cheeks or any uncomfortable adjustment appointments to sit through. Plus, there won't be any emergency appointments to make due to problems like protruding wires or broken brackets, which is something, both parents and teens appreciate.
Clear Aligners Made Just For Teens
There are two main differences between Invisalign Teen and regular Invisalign. First of all, Invisalign Teen aligners come with small “compliance indicators” which fade with use. These indicators are there to show whether or not the treatment plan is being followed. Secondly, Invisalign Teen aligners come with “eruption tabs” built right in to hold space for teeth that have not yet erupted.
Convenient and Discreet Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign Teen fits seamlessly into a busy teenager's lifestyle. Teenagers love wearing Invisalign Teen because there are no restrictions put on what types of foods can be eaten as the aligners are taken out when eating. Keeping your teeth clean with Invisalign Teen is very easy as you simply take the aligners out to brush and floss and then pop them back in when done. But perhaps best of all, Invisalign Teen is a virtually invisible way to improve a smile as most people don't even notice when a teen is wearing these clear aligners.
Is Invisalign Teen Right For You?
If you are a teenager who does not want to wear highly visible metal braces and you are confident you can wear Invisalign aligners for the required 22 hours each day, Invisalign Teen may be a great treatment option for you. Only your orthodontist can determine if your type of orthodontic problem can be corrected with Invisalign Teen, so after a visit with Dr. Niles you will know what the best treatment option is for your smile.
