INVISALIGN FOR TEENAGERS
The majority of orthodontic patients are teenagers, so the decision to get braces can be an emotional one. Teenagers are often self-conscious about their looks, and some would rather keep their crooked teeth than have a mouth full of metal. Fortunately, as a teen, you have more options these days, and one of the best is Invisalign®.
Invisalign Teen® offers the same effective treatment for teens as for adults. Using a series of custom designed and virtually invisible clear aligners, your child’s teeth are precisely aligned to their proper locations. The durable custom aligners are strong enough to last, yet gentle enough to provide just the right amount of force needed to ease the teeth into their ideal alignment, creating a beautiful, lasting smile.
As an authorized Invisalign orthodontist, Dr. Monacell will evaluate your situation and explain if Invisalign Teen will be an option for you.
If so, you will receive a customized set of aligners made specifically for your needs. For the best results, you will need to wear your Invisalign aligners 20 to 22 hours each day. To reassure your parents, your aligners will have blue compliance indicators to prove that you are wearing them as much as you should.
Every week or so, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners. Each set is designed to move your teeth more towards their ideal position. By the end of the process, you should have a healthy, attractive smile.
Invisalign Teen® offers:
Because Invisalign aligners are made with clear, flexible plastic your friends will barely be able to see that you’re wearing them. And while you’ll need to wear them most of the time, you can remove them for special occasions like a school dance or sporting event. Plus, they work up to 2 1/2 times faster than some other braces, meaning you’ll have a beautiful smile faster than you could have hoped. Invisalign helps you be confident in your looks during and after treatment.
Traditional metal braces make daily brushing and flossing difficult. Food gets caught in the wires and brackets and is hard to remove. As a result, you are more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. With Invisalign braces, you simply remove your aligners when you eat and care for your teeth. Cleaning the aligners is easy as well, so you don’t subject your teeth to excess bacteria and food particles. As a plus, your parents will be more relaxed and not feel they have to monitor your oral hygiene.
INVISALIGN TREATMENT CAN
TRANSFORM YOUR TEEN’S SMILE WITHOUT SLOWING THEM DOWN
Today teens are going through a lot of changes. Besides hectic, jam-packed schedules, they naturally want to look and feel their best. That’s where Invisalign Teen® can help. Not only is the Invisalign Teen® system comfortable and convenient, it is also virtually invisible, allowing your child to live a full and active life, without the worry of traditional metal braces.
Now your busy teen can play sports, participate in activities, and still eat and drink all of their favorite foods. Invisalign Teen® can even be removed for brief periods when necessary so they can play a musical instrument or participate in sports more easily and safely.
