Straighten Out Your TEEN with Invisalign

Invisalign is offering their state-of-the-art technology for teens. At first I thought it was a crazy idea too….. teens keeping up with clear trays on a daily, much less hourly basis? But according to the invisalign research teens are actually more compliant wearing the invisible aligners than adults!

Here are reasons to consider Invisalign for your teen:

Removable – Invisalign Teen allows your child to remove the aligners for eating and brushing, so it is easier to maintain proper oral hygiene. Your teen can brush and floss normally, which can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Better than that, since they are removable, there are NO food restrictions.

Best of all they are conducive to our kid’s active lifestyles. Trays can be removed for games and practices or playing band instruments. Your teen can participate in their favorite activity without the worry of mouth injury.

Invisible – Let’s face it, our teens are very self-conscious about their appearance. With invisalign their peers can hardly notice they are straightening their smile giving them greater self-confidence. Those important pictures will be metal and bracket free!

Comfort Invisalign straightens your teeth with tooth colored attachments and clear plastic trays with no metal for better comfort.

Time Savings – With Invisalign you and your teen are actually in the office less time because instead of an office visit to tighten your braces, you simply start wearing your next aligner approximately every two weeks. In addition, there are no “emergency” visits because of broken wires and brackets.

Compliance Indicators – Invisalign has added a really cool feature that allows you and your practitioner to check how long your teen has been wearing each aligner. On each aligner there is an blue indicator. As the teen wears the aligner there is an enzyme that reacts to their saliva that turns the blue dot to white upon appropriate wear.

Lost Trays – Invisalign is also providing 6 free replacement trays in case your teen loses their aligners throughout treatment.

These are great reasons to think about Invisalign for your teen, although it is not for everyone. As a parent, you should ultimately gauge the responsibility level of your teen and how motivated they are in wanting a straight smile.
