What is different about Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen aligners have been designed with teenagers in mind and consider a teenage patient’s growing molars. The great benefit of Invisalign Teen aligners is that they provide a flexible, more attractive way to give teenagers the confidence of a great smile.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign Teen aligners are comfortable, removable and nearly invisible, which means teenagers can carry on enjoying life without the restrictions, irritation and self-consciousness associated with metal brackets and wires.
Because Invisalign aligners are removable, teenagers can continue brushing and flossing normally – and this can lead to better overall dental health in the future. Each aligner also comes with a small, inconspicuous Blue Dot Indicator, which helps patients know if they are ready for their next set of aligners. It also shows parents and orthodontists that the braces are being worn as directed. Another modification is built-in “eruption tabs” that are designed to hold space for teeth that have not yet fully erupted.
