Invisalign For Teens
Invisalign for Teens is a series of clear, tough plastic aligner trays that are the same as standard Invisalign. Invisalign Teen is a great alternative to metal braces, as they are comfortable, easily removable and are almost invisible.
With Invisalign Teen, you can straighten your teeth and smile at the same time.
At Brush & Floss Dental Center, we can help you get Invisalign Teen so that your child can have a straight smile in a confident way.
How Does Invisalign For Teens Work?
Invisalign Teen is an innovative orthodontic treatment that has been designed specifically with teenagers in mind. The technology offers a subtle way to straighten your teen’s teeth. The aligners are BPA-free and are custom-fitted to your teen’s teeth.
Unlike traditional metal braces that use brackets, wires, and rubber bands, Invisalign Teen are all in one piece, like plastic retainers.
A teenagers can easily place them into their mouth, starting from the front teeth and working their way to the back. These aligners put pressure on the teeth, shifting them to a more accurate position. Your teen will need to replace a set of aligners with the next one in the series after every two weeks or so, depending on our instructions.
Your teenager may feel slight discomfort when the aligners exert pressure on their teeth; however, it is significantly less than the discomfort caused by metal braces.
To get the best results, your teen will need to wear them 20 to 22 hours every day and take them out only for meals or cleaning their teeth.
