Invisalign is one of the world’s leading orthodontic treatments and it is suitable for a wide range of patients. As well as catering for adults, Invisalign has also launched a system, which is specially designed for teenagers; Invisalign Teen was developed to make treatment simpler and more convenient for younger patients.
Invisalign Teen is an Invisalign system, which has been adapted for teenagers. Essentially, the treatment is the same, but there are additional features, which make treatment easier for young people. With Invisalign Teen, the treatment process is the same, but there are extra aligners and each aligner has a colour indicator, which reminds you when you need to swap your aligners over. Treatment works in the same way, with a series of different aligners working together to straighten the teeth; each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the aligners are taken out to eat and clean the teeth. Treatment length varies according to the individual and how much movement is required.
Invisalign Teen aligners look the same as traditional Invisalign aligners, aside from the fact they have a colour marker to show patients when to change the aligner over. Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic and they are placed over the teeth in a similar way to a gum shield, which is worn for sport; the aligners are removable and they simply lift off when you want to take them out to enjoy a meal or clean your teeth. As they are made from transparent components, they are virtually invisible, so you can smile without anyone even noticing that you’re wearing a brace.
Aside from the obvious benefit of virtually invisible treatment, Invisalign Teen is also simple, convenient and comfortable and it gives teenagers more flexibility than fixed braces.
