For most teenagers, image is important. Invisible braces can help to make the process of having orthodontic treatment much easier to handle. Wearing braces can affect confidence and self-esteem, but with invisible braces, nobody need know that you’re having treatment and you can achieve a beautiful smile without any hassle or worries.
Everything you need to know about Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen is part of the hugely popular Invisalign family. This clear aligner treatment enables patients to get results without facing up to the stigma attached to wearing visible braces or worrying about what they look like. Invisalign Teen aligners are removable and virtually invisible, so you’ll find that treatment has very little bearing on your looks or your day-to-day routine.
Invisalign works by using a specially-designed set of clear appliances called aligners to move the teeth into the desired position. The aligners work in order, with each one slightly different in shape. Each one is worn for two weeks and you then swap for the next appliance in the sequence until treatment is complete.
Invisalign Teen is essentially the same as Invisalign. However, a couple of additional features have been included to make life easier for teenagers. These aligners are colour-marked to remind you when you need to swap your aligners over and you also get spares, so it’s not the end of the world if you lose or damage one of your aligners.
How could Invisalign Teen benefit me?
Invisalign Teen offers so many benefits for teenagers with orthodontic issues. Firstly, the aligners are completely clear, so they cannot be seen by others. This enables you to feel confident during the treatment stage. Secondly, Invisalign aligners are removable, which means that you can eat, drink, socialise and clean your teeth with no hassle at all. These aligners are also comfortable and light and they give you a greater sense of freedom than fixed braces.
