What Is It?
Invisalign Teen® is designed to help teenagers maintain their self-esteem and self-confidence and accommodate their active lifestyles while they address their orthodontic needs. Developed in collaboration with leading orthodontists who understand the treatment demands of teenagers, Invisalign Teen® combines the benefits of the Invisalign system with new features, such as a Blue Dot Wear Indicator that fades when the aligner becomes worn and is ready to be changed; Eruption Tabs to accommodate the growth of second molars; and other features to address clinical needs common to teens.
Why Would I Want It?
During Invisalign Teen® treatment, teenagers can keep up their active lifestyle, play sports and smile during social activities. Traditional braces often carry a stigma of being unattractive and noticeable, leaving teens feeling self-conscious and afraid to smile.
What’s more, traditional wire and bracket braces present challenges for proper brushing and flossing, contributing to food and plaque build-up in the mouth. Because Invisalign Teen® aligners are easy to remove, they promote better oral hygiene, as well as a pain-free experience with less irritation to the gums and mouth. Whereas traditional braces also can require emergency visits to the dentist to fix a broken bracket, Invisalign Teen® provides six extra replacement aligners in case others are lost or misplaced. Appointment times are also shorter than regular wire braces.
