Invisalign Teen offers treatment for adolescents who are still in their growing stages and is just as effective in treating common orthodontic problems as conventional metal braces are. Our orthodontist can use Invisalign Teen to correct mild to severe overbites, underbites, crowding and gapped teeth. This treatment offers several benefits over conventional braces, including:
- No food restrictions
- Easier brushing and flossing
- Removable aligners for sports, music and other activities
- Privacy during treatment
- Enhanced comfort
All of these factors combine to create an extremely successful orthodontic treatment for teens. With Invisalign Teen, adolescents often feel more confident when wearing their aligners, and they are able to continue participating in their favorite activities with no restrictions. They can even keep their teeth and gums cleaner and healthier in the long run.
The clear aligners, the ability to remove them to clean teeth and the overall comfort combined make Invisalign Teen a popular choice. The aligners are uniquely designed to accommodate erupting teeth and contain wear indicators that let your teen know when it is time to change them. Since the aligners can be changed at home on a recommended schedule, your teen’s treatment is less likely to get off-track due to scheduling difficulties or delays, either.
The amount of time your teen will spend in treatment is comparable to the amount of time spent in braces. Costs also tend to be comparable, but the overall benefits of Invisalign Teen make it a great option.
