Invisalign for Teenagers
When it comes to orthodontics, parents often find themselves battling with their children who don’t want to wear unsightly metal wires on their teeth for months or years. Luckily, with Invisalign, this will not be a problem. Invisalign provides an effective way for teenagers to obtain the perfect smile, without making them feel self-conscious during the treatment.
In addition, as the Invisalign aligners are removable, your son or daughter will be able to continue performing all their favourite activities like sports or music without any restrictions or discomfort.
Some teenage patients will need the same Invisalign treatment as adults. However, for younger patients, there is Invisalign Teen®. Your orthodontist will help determine which of the treatments is most appropriate for each patient.
What is Invisalign Teen®?
Invisalign Teen® uses the same technology as regular Invisalign aligners. However, it has some extra features designed to help get better results for younger patients:
- Wear Indicators: To help ensure your child is not removing his or her aligners while you’re not around, Invisalign Teen® aligners have a blue dot that will fade to clear while the retainer is worn to help you estimate wear time.
