A new school year is quickly approaching! Can you believe it? It’s time to get back into the groove of after-school activities, homework, early wake-up calls and the seemingly constant running around. Teenage patients may be contemplating ways to start school on their way to a better smile. There’s no time like the present to start planning your path to a beautiful smile. So, start the school year right with Invisalign Teen.
What Is Invisalign Teen?
Invisalign Teen works just like all of the other Invisalign products, but is designed with teens in mind. Like traditional Invisalign, it gradually shifts teeth using custom aligners. These aligners are clear and removable, making them a top choice for adults and teens everywhere, as they are more discreet and don’t have as many restrictions as braces. The aligners must be worn as directed by your orthodontist. This includes a wear time of 20-22 hours each day, removing the aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
This may seem like a lot of responsibility to give to a teen, and that’s why this treatment includes some helpful additions to help teens stay on track.
How It Differs From Other Invisalign Products
Being a busy teen can result in parents being a little apprehensive about whether or not their teen is going to be able to comply with their orthodontist’s instructions for treatment. That’s why Invisalign Teen is different, offering additions to the system to help teens through treatment, such as:
- Blue compliance indicators
- Replacement trays
- Room to grow
With consistent wear, the blue compliance indicators, located on each aligner tray, will fade. This lets parents and teens know the aligners are being worn for the right amount of time. Invisalign Teen also includes up to six replacement trays free of charge, just in case the unfortunate occurs. There’s also room for any remaining molars to erupt, so teens can begin treatment right away without worrying about whether or not they have all of their permanent teeth.
Getting Started Now
Before school starts is the perfect time to get started with Invisalign Teen. Let’s face it, once school starts, life is going to get a bit more chaotic. It may be difficult to make orthodontist appointments and begin something new, so the time to start is now. Find an orthodontist in your area who specializes in Invisalign and schedule your consultation. Let them know Invisalign Teen is on your mind and they will help you craft a treatment plan for maximum results.
Start the school year off on the right foot by getting yourself on the path to a better smile with Invisalign Teen. Have confidence in yourself and your treatment plan, and enjoy fewer restrictions and more freedom. It’s time to focus on your smile, and Invisalign Teen can help!
