At SmileTown Orthodontics Braces & Invisalign we offer a line of Invisalign Clear Aligners specifically for teens. In this blog, our orthodontists in Burnaby, Langley, and North Delta discuss the details about this orthodontic treatment and how it can help teens obtain a straighter smile.
Invisalign is a series of removable, clear plastic orthodontic aligners that could offer a convenient and aesthetically pleasing option for orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is crafted to help correct structural issues, straighten teeth, and fill gaps in between teeth. Invisalign offers a line of aligners made specifically for teens to help remove the barriers teenagers may face with their orthodontic treatments and Invisalign.
Invisalign for Teens includes many features that could help resolve the challenges busy teens might encounter during orthodontic treatment and can be prescribed for younger teens that haven't had their adult teeth completely come in yet. The aim is to make it easier for teens to stay on track with their treatment schedule, and adapt to their developing smiles.
We have highlighted some of the key features that come with Invisalign Teen aligners.
Teen patients often take out their aligners for longer periods of time than adult patients. Designed with the daily needs of teenagers in mind, compliance indicators can help teens stay on track with their treatment plan.
Invisalign Teen compliance indicators are small blue dots on the aligners that gradually fade over two weeks of full-time wear. So, if a patient strays off track with their treatment, it's easy for them to easily continue where they left off and know how long they still have to wear their current set of aligners.
Since teens are more likely to take out their aligners than adults, teens are at higher risk of misplacing or damaging their aligners. This is why Invisalign for teens comes with six sets of replacement aligners so they can stay on track with their treatment.
Invisalign for teens includes eruption tabs that offer just the right amount of space for adult teeth to erupt. This feature offers space for the adult teeth to grow in and carefully guides them into their correct positions.
