An Orthodontic Solution That Makes Teens Smile!

When faced with the prospect of orthodontic treatment, many teenagers balk at the idea of having to wear metal braces that show. After all, teenagers are at a stage in life when appearance is everything and the thought of having metal wires and brackets criss-crossing their teeth is an idea many teens dislike.

If you are a teenager or know a teen who could benefit from orthodontic treatment, you should know that there's a great alternative to visible metal braces that teenagers are embracing and it's called Invisalign Teen!

What is Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen consists of a sequence of finely calibrated, custom-made, removable, clear aligners that gradually move teeth into the desired position. If you are a candidate for this treatment option, you may find that these clear aligners are a great fit for your busy lifestyle. When you're wearing Invisalign Teen, you can continue enjoying all your favorite foods like hard crusted breads, chewy pizza crusts and crisp apples while easily maintaining good oral hygiene, as the aligners are designed to be taken out when eating and when brushing & flossing. 

As an Invisalign Teen patient, you will be instructed to wear each aligner for about two weeks, at which point you'll move on to the next aligner in the series and so on until your teeth have moved into their final, optimal position which was carefully planned out by your orthodontist. The aligners must be worn for 22 hours a day, allowing you to take them out at mealtime, when brushing & flossing and for the occasional special event such as school or family photographs. 

How Invisalign Teen Patients Benefit

Teenagers wearing Invisalign Teen benefit in many ways including:

  • Very discreet treatment due to the aligners being clear
  • Convenient treatment that fits into a teenager's active lifestyle
  • Fewer orthodontic appointments to keep
  • Good self-esteem and confidence throughout treatment
  • Easy to maintain good oral hygiene
  • No food restrictions
  • Comfortable treatment as there are no irritating wires or brackets present

Clear Aligners Designed Just for Teenagers

Clear Orthodontic Aligners VideoInvisalign Teen aligners come with discreet “compliance indicators” built in which fade with use. These indicators are there to let the patient, his or her orthodontist, and the parents know whether or not the aligners are being worn as directed. This gives parents the peace of mind knowing their teenagers wearing Invisalign Teen aligners are being compliant with their treatment, which is something that makes Drs. Hamilton, Wilson & Hendrickson happy as well! 

Invisalign Teen aligners also come with special “eruption tabs” built in which are designed to hold space for permanent teeth that have yet to come in.
