What Is Invisalign Teen?

For the most part, Invisalign Teen works just like the traditional Invisalign treatment system. It involves a customized set of clear plastic aligners that straighten teeth and correct any bite misalignments. Of course, to be aimed at teens, there are a few ways that it differs from the traditional adult version. These include: 

  • A compliance indicator to allow Dr. Klingler and the parents/guardians to monitor that they are being worn as they should be. 
  • Six (6) complimentary replacement aligners. Teens tend to lose or break these easier than adults. 
  • Ability to accommodate teeth that may still be erupting.

Benefits of Invisalign Teen

There are so many reasons why Invisalign Teen has grown in popularity over the years, such as: 

  • Comfortable treatment. For teens that are involved in contact sports and some musical instruments, braces and wires can cause irritation to the cheeks and lips that can get in the way of their extracurricular activities. Invisalign aligners are a solution for some patients to straighten their teeth without as much irritation. With Invisalign Teen, the thin, clear plastic aligners are comfortable and gently move the the teeth for a comfortable alternative for some patients. 
  • Effective Treatment. When worn properly, Invisalign Teen is just as effective as traditional braces and can be used to treat many different orthodontic issues that impact teens. Because you can see your progress in 3D using state-of-the-art technology, you can already see the end goal and what you are working towards.
  • Convenience. With Invisalign Teen aligners being removable, you don’t have to worry about watching what you eat or change the way you brush and floss your teeth. If you’ve got a full schedule, these small benefits can be incredibly convenient.

Are You a Good Candidate for Invisalign Teen?

A teen who has all permanent teeth erupted and doesn’t require severe or complex orthodontic care would be a good candidate for Invisalign Teen. Though, keep in mind that these aligners have to be worn for at least 22 hours per day in order to provide effective treatment – and that means teens who choose this option will need to be committed to seeing the treatment through.
