Our team is passionate about providing teenagers in our community with the dazzling smiles they need to bravely face their school days, soccer games, and more. For many teens, getting corrective treatment is a right of passage that helps transform their current smile into the smile of their dreams. Invisalign is quickly rising in popularity among younger patients because the aligners are incredibly effective, ultra-comfortable, and virtually invisible. This revolutionary new treatment gives our teen patients the opportunity to work toward a dazzling and healthy smile without the aesthetics of metal braces.
How Can Invisalign Teen Help Me?
It’s well known that Invisalign and other corrective treatments help teens achieve beautiful smiles. When your teeth are straighter, you feel a renewed sense of confidence that makes you proud to see your smile in the mirror. We’ve seen patients who’ve blossomed during treatment and become more outgoing and assured in themselves.
While having a beautiful smile can improve your self-esteem, it can also improve your oral health. Invisalign is excellent at tackling orthodontic issues big and small and helping your smile function better. These clear aligners correct common issues such as:
- Overly crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
Not only do these problems affect the look of your smile, but they can also affect the way you chew, speak, bite, and more. Invisalign helps solve these issues, so you don’t have to worry about pain or discomfort.
What Makes Invisalign Teen Unique?
Invisalign Teen is made just for you, and it’s designed to cater to the growing mouths of teenage patients. This appliance is printed to snugly fit over your smile while providing consistent pressure to your teeth as they shift along the planned route. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, it’s important you wear your custom aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day. To help you keep track of how often you’re wearing your aligners, Invisalign Teen features compliance indicators. These indicators are located near the back of your aligners, and they will disappear if you wear your appliance for the directed amount of time per day. If you can still see the indicator at the end of two weeks, you may want to focus on wearing your aligners more consistently.
How to Protect Your Invisalign
The best way to protect your Invisalign aligners is to keep them clean. Luckily, keeping your Invisalign clean is simple and adds only a few minutes to our daily routine. Whenever you brush and floss your teeth every day, you should remove your aligners. After you’re finished cleaning your teeth, use your toothbrush and warm water to scrub every side of your aligners. This will keep your aligners clean and prevent harmful bacteria from living on your appliance.
Benefits of Invisalign
Patients are raving about Invisalign clear aligners because they offer them a high level of flexibility during treatment. Due to the unique material Invisalign is printed in, patients are free to take their appliances in and out as they please. While it’s essential to wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day, you can take them out to take pictures, eat lunch, play sports, and more.
While it’s easy to take your aligners out, you’ll likely forget you’re wearing them in the first place. Experts designed Invisalign to fit snugly over your smile and provide you with ultimate comfort. We use iTero to take digital impressions, so your aligner sets fit perfectly and don’t leave any room for uncomfortable or painful poking.
Another great benefit of Invisalign is that you can eat whatever you like throughout treatment. Unlike braces, Invisalign won’t break due to pulled wires or broken brackets. You should remove your aligners before eating anything, so nothing gets stuck to them.
No matter what you eat, it’s essential to keep your smile clean, so your treatment can progress smoothly. Luckily, Invisalign is easily removable, so you can perform your daily dental hygiene routine without worrying about a metal appliance. All you have to do is take your Invisalign out, brush and floss your teeth, clean your aligners, and you’re one step closer to your dream smile.
Not only is Invisalign comfortable and easily removable, but it’s also virtually invisible. These clear aligners blend flawlessly with your natural smile, and most people won’t be able to tell you’re wearing them. This appliance is perfect for our patients who like the fantastic results of braces but want a more discreet appliance.
