Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teen’s teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your teen’s teeth. They simply wear them over their teeth and change them out for a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each aligner comes with a compliance indicator to insure they are being worn.
If you’ve had braces yourself, you already know the issues associated with metal wires and brackets. With Invisalign, the aligners are removable, so your teen can play sports without the worry of being hit in the mouth by a ball, which can cause real damage in braces. They can also continue playing musical instruments properly, without braces getting in the way. With Invisalign, there are fewer steps for proper hygiene and fewer restrictions on what you can eat. The removable aligners make it easy to brush and floss and eat normally.
