Invisalign Teens, or Invisalign created specifically for teenagers, still offers the same beneficial results of discrete aligners, or “invisible braces”, with slight modifications to the treatment. Invisalign providers understand that teens have different needs than adults. While offering the same results and benefits as Invisalign, Invisalign Teens allows an alternative to traditional braces for adolescents.
Invisalign Teens Benefits may include:
- Fewer diet restrictions while going through the Invisalign process of straightening teeth
- More accessibility while brushing and flossing, giving parents and dentists peace of mind
- Up to 6 free Invisalign aligner replacements for lost, damaged, or misplaced aligners
- The ability to change aligners at home roughly every two weeks for accurate and consistent progress
The creators of Invisalign accounted for the differences in teenagers jaw and oral developmental stages, including the eruption of the second molars.
In order to track the Invisalign progress for both parents and teenagers, blue dot indicators located on the aligners fade to indicate the proper time to switch aligners for consistent results. The blue dot indicators also reassure parents that teenagers are using Invisalign properly to receive adequate results for the parents’ investment in their child’s oral health.
