When it comes to being a teenager, appearance is usually everything. We often see teenage patients that are concerned about how their braces may look and what others may think about them. Luckily, Invisalign has created a special treatment option for even our younger patients! With Invisalign Teen, your child can correct their smile without the “metal mouth” look so many are scared of.
Why Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen was developed with teenagers in mind, by leading orthodontists who understand the unique needs and active lifestyles of teenage patients. The Teen aligners are made using the same technology, with the same purpose as traditional Invisalign aligners. However, Invisalign Teen has blue wear-indicators that allow Dr. Bernuy to determine how compliant your teen is with their orthodontic treatment. Special features have also been included to compensate for canines, second premolars, and second molars.
Invisalign Teen provides a more aesthetically pleasing and flexible way for teenagers to correct their smiles. They are custom-made to be comfortable, are nearly invisible to others and can even be removed. This allows teenagers to carry on with day-to-day life without any restrictions, irritations or confidence problems often associated with traditional metal braces. Teens can also properly care for their teeth during treatment, as the aligners can be removed during their dental care regimen. Ready to start treatment with Invisalign Teen?
