During teenage years, some adolescents may encounter dental problems such as overcrowded teeth, crossbite, underbite, overbite and widely spaced teeth. Invisalign offers a range of treatment options for teenagers that offer an alternative to traditional orthodontic procedures, allowing for almost invisible, removable and comfortable aligners to help move teeth into the desired position.
Invisalign aligners can be especially ideal as they allow for normal brushing and flossing because of their removable function. For teens who may struggle with the more involved cleaning routine that comes with other treatments, this can be a huge benefit. However, the best type of treatment will vary for teenagers since so many factors depend on the stage of their oral development. Some young patients are just as suited for treatments like Invisalign as most adults, while others will need to consider other options.
What is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen aims to straighten teen’s teeth without the restrictions and visibility of metal braces. Invisalign Teen reassures self-conscious teen’s that they don’t have to let metal, wire and brackets hold them back from enjoying all the things that come with teen-hood as Invisalign Teen is virtually invisible and removable. Invisalign essentially uses a series of clear, removable aligners that are custom-made to the teen’s teeth. Benefits of Invisalign Teen include;
Invisalign Teen is especially designed for youth, and was developed with teens, parents and leading orthodontists who understand the unique treatment needs of the patients in line with their active lifestyles. The Invisalign Teen aligners are made with the same technology used to create adult aligners, but because teens are always on the move, a few special features have been added.
Teens are able to measure the wear time with blue 'wear-indicators', which fade from blue to clear to signal when it is time to change aligners. There are also special features incorporated in the Invisalign Teen aligners to compensate for the eruption of canines, second premolars and second molars.
Teens also get the advantage of having six free individual replacement aligners included, just in case any get lost.
How does Invisalign Teen differ from the adult Invisalign treatment?
Invisalign Teen varies from the adult Invisalign treatments due to the addition of a couple of new clinical features. Although majority of the benefits and processes are the same between the two treatments, Invisalign Teen has two main differentiating features which include compliance indicators and up to six free replacement aligners.
Both new clinical features are accommodating to common teenage habits such as misplacing belongings and nonconformity / disobedience. The free replacement means parents can have peace of mind if an aligner is lost. The built-in assurance checker (a blue indicator that fades over time, if worn as directed) means both parents and orthodontists can check the teen’s compliance.
