When it comes to teenagers, fashion is a major concern for many and it may seem like the end of the world when your dentist advises you to consider undergoing orthodontic treatment. Braces have never been viewed as a cool look, but times have changed since the days of bulky metal train-tracks and today’s teens have a wide range of options, including invisible braces. With newer treatments, patients are able to enter into treatment without the anxiety and apprehension they may have suffered in the past, as they can now have the treatment they need without worrying about their looks or their image.
About invisible braces
We are delighted to offer our teenage patients the amazing Invisalign Teen system, which has been specially developed with young patients in mind. This treatment is part of the world-famous Invisalign system and it has additional features, which benefit teenagers. The treatment works in exactly the same way as the original Invisalign system, with patients wearing a series of custom-made removable appliances, known as aligners. Each aligner is slightly different and all are worn for 2 weeks in a specific order. Invisalign Teen aligners boast coloured indicators, which remind you when to substitute your aligner and spare aligners, which means that you don’t need to go into frenzied panic if you lose one of your braces.
What are the benefits of Invisalign Teen aligners?
Invisalign Teen is a great option for image-conscious teens, as you can have treatment to get an amazing smile without any worries about what people will think or say when you start your treatment or how you will feel when you look in the mirror. These aligners are made from clear plastic, so you can hardly see them when you smile. Removable braces also give you a little more freedom during your treatment and they help you to maintain good oral hygiene, as you can continue to brush your teeth in the same way as you did before. You can also enjoy eating without having to worry about the potential embarrassment of getting something stuck in your brace.
