Some teens shy away from braces due to the embarrassment it can cause to them. If your child doesn’t like braces then consider opting for Invisalign Teen.
Also known as clear aligners, Invisalign Teen are an invisible set of aligners that are removable and very comfortable to wear.
They work just like braces and can help your child get a perfect smile in no time. They’re prepared in the lab based on the impressions of your mouth.
Children as young as 11 years of age can be a candidate for Invisalign treatment. However, there must be no baby teeth present and all the permanent set of incisors must have erupted.
We understand how embarrassing it can be for your child to go to school or college with braces on. Your child doesn’t want people to know that he or she wears braces but it’s out of your hands since traditional braces are highly visible due to the presence of metal and wires.
Plus, they can also cause pain and discomfort, especially in the beginning, which can cause your child to take off from school or be less attentive during class.
This is why you need Invisalign Teens. They are transparent and will not cause your child any pain or discomfort. Plus, dental phobia is more common among teens. However, since the Invisalign Teen process is painless, you will feel no difficulty at all.
Moreover, they work just like traditional braces and can help solve problems, such as:
- Gaps between teeth
We recommend that you seek a treatment as early as possible. The more you wait, the difficult it gets to treat a condition. Call us to schedule an appointment.
Invisalign Teens are quite like Invisalign for adults and use the same technology. However, they come with a few additional features including:
- Special features to accommodate for the eruption of premolars, second molars, and canines.
- Blue wear-indicators to understand wear time.
- Six replacement aligners.
They can straighten the teeth in a few months and work without causing any pain or discomfort. Plus, they are very easy to clean and maintain, perfect for your teen.
The process is painless. We’ll take 3D images of the jaw and prepare a custom set of aligners for the mouth. They’re quite easy to insert and remove. However, they’re to be worn for about 22 hours per day.
We perform numerous Invisalign procedures every year. We can work with your budget and make it easy to get your teen into Invisalign. Call us today to learn more.
