Invisalign Teen is a specialized version of the popular Invisalign orthodontic treatment designed specifically for teenagers. Like traditional Invisalign treatment, Invisalign Teen uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth and correct a range of dental issues. However, Invisalign Teen has several unique features that make it an ideal choice for teenagers looking for a more discreet, convenient, and effective orthodontic treatment option.
Features of Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen aligners are designed to address the unique needs of teenagers, with features that include:
- Compliance indicators: Invisalign Teen aligners have a small blue dot on the outside that fades as the aligners are worn, indicating whether the aligners are being worn as directed.
- Replacement aligners: Invisalign Teen comes with up to six replacement aligners, making replacing lost or damaged aligners easier.
- Eruption tabs: Invisalign Teen aligners have special tabs that accommodate the growth of second molars and new teeth, ensuring that the aligners continue to fit properly as the teeth shift into place.
Benefits of Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen offers many benefits for teenagers looking for a more discreet, convenient, and effective orthodontic treatment option. Some of the key benefits of Invisalign Teen include:
- Discreet appearance: Invisalign Teen aligners are virtually invisible, making them a popular choice for teenagers concerned about traditional braces’ appearance.
- Removable aligners: Invisalign Teen aligners are removable, which means they can be taken out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, making them a convenient and flexible option for busy teenage lifestyles.
- Effective treatment: Invisalign Teen is just as effective as traditional braces for correcting a wide range of dental issues, including overcrowding, spacing, and bite problems.
