When told they can benefit from orthodontic treatment, many teenagers balk at the idea of wearing conventional metal braces that show. This is not surprising as most teenagers are very concerned with their appearance and the idea of having braces criss-crossing their teeth is not something many teens look forward to. But there's an orthodontic treatment option available today that is leaving big smiles on the faces of teenagers everywhere! Invisalign Teen is a great orthodontic treatment option that straightens teeth without any wires or brackets whatsoever.
About Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen is an orthodontic treatment method that consists of a sequence of custom-made, clear, removable aligners that gently move the teeth into the desired optimal position. As an Invisalign Teen patient, you will be given several aligners wherein you will start treatment by wearing the first aligner in the series for about two weeks. You will then replace the aligner with the next in the series and so forth until your treatment is complete. It is necessary that you wear your aligners for 22 hours each day, however, you can remove them while eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Benefits of Invisalign Teen
There are many benefits associated with Invisalign Teen including:
- Discreet and comfortable treatment due to the smooth clear aligners
- No dietary restrictions because the aligners are to be removed when eating
- Better self-esteem & confidence due to the discreet nature of the clear aligners
- No metal wires or brackets present to poke and irritate the inside of your mouth
- Fewer appointments necessary as there are no wires to tighten or adjust
- Easy to maintain good oral hygiene as the aligners are removed when brushing & flossing

Aligners Designed for Teens Only
Invisalign Teen aligners are designed specifically to be worn by teenagers. Each aligner comes with a discreet compliance indicator that fades as the aligner is worn. This shows the patient, Dr. Taddeo and the patient’s parents whether or not the aligners are being worn as directed. Invisalign Teen aligners also come with special eruption tabs built in which hold space for permanent teeth that have not yet erupted.
