Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign Teen can correct and improve your teen’s teeth without the need for conventional braces.
SPECIALIST TREATMENT FOR TEENS
Invisalign is a popular treatment among adolescent patients. The clear, plastic aligners are custom-made to your teen’s teeth, using 3D computer technology, and work gradually to move the teeth into position. And, because they can be taken out for eating, brushing and flossing, your teen can keep their teeth clean even while having orthodontic treatment.
To help achieve optimum results from orthodontic treatment, your teen should wear his or her Invisalign aligners for 22 hours a day. We can help them achieve this by applying a blue dot wear indicator to your teen’s Invisalign aligners. This helps you and your teen keep track of the amount of time each set of aligners is worn.
Benefits of Invisalign Teen
Great results: The teenage years are a great time for orthodontic treatment as this is when the teeth and jaw are still developing. This means better responsiveness to treatment and better results.
Ideal for teen lifestyles: The removable aligners can be taken out when playing sports and musical instruments, or for important teenage occasions such as a first date or prom night.
No impact on your teen’s teeth: Because Invisalign aligners are removable, there’s no excuse for your teen not to clean their teeth during treatment. The clear aligners won’t leave any marks on the surface of your teen’s teeth either because they fit over teeth rather than being attached to them.
SPECIALIST TREATMENT FOR CHILDREN
Invisalign also have aligners that are suitable for our youngest patients. At Graham Gardner Orthodontics, we take a proactive approach to orthodontic treatment so we encourage children to come in for an early orthodontic consultation between the ages of 7 and 11. At an early consultation we will be looking to identify any problems that may be developing. If we notice any, we may recommend Invisalign First aligners, which can help prepare the teeth and jaws for further orthodontic treatment. This proactive approach could also help to reduce the extent of treatment your child may need during their teenage years.
