Invisalign Teen is a clear solution to straighten teeth without metal braces. The Invisalign aligners are removable and clear, which means teens can straighten their teeth without the inconveniences of metal braces. The simple treatment straightens teeth using a series of retainer-like trays to incrementally move the teeth into their final alignment. Teens will enjoy the freedom and ease of Invisalign Teen during a time in their early life when self-image and confidence building is at its peak.
How does Invisalign Teen work?
Young patient, depending of the severity of their condition, wear a set of clear aligners for 15-18 months on average. Orthodontic patients go through an average of 30-40 aligners during treatment that change every two weeks. Invisalign Teen aligners must be worn at least 20 hour per day and only removed when eating, non-water drinking, brushing and flossing. With time the teen’s teeth progressively move and become more and more aligned. Convenience also comes to parents as orthodontist visits are often shorter and less frequent and range from 4-8 weeks, depending on the stage of treatment.
Invisalign Teen can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, which, in the past, were only treated with traditional braces. These conditions include:
- Overly crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Deep bite
Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same Invisalign technology used for adult Invisalign, but Invisalign Teen has been engineered with features to monitor wear time, help prevent over-eruption of molars and preserve space for erupting adult teeth.
