It’s Invisalign but with added benefits for teens
Invisalign, the company behind the ever-popular invisible aligners, has introduced Invisalign for teens. Based on the full Invisalign treatment, this has the added benefit specifically for teens of a blue dot wear indicator discreetly positioned at the back of the aligners. This helps teens and their orthodontist keep track of how often the aligners are being worn, which for ultimate results should be 22 hours per day. The teen option also has the added benefit of replacement aligners, should any be lost or mislaid.
Invisalign for teens doesn’t require any metal brackets, or wires to move your teeth into position. Instead, the aligners are made from clear, plastic material which make them virtually invisible. Using our hi-tech Itero Scanner (we have two!) we design ultra – thin clear plastic precision aligners without the need for old – fashioned impressions. Each set of aligners is custom made for you, making them extremely comfortable to wear and virtually invisible.
Over the course of your treatment you will need to change your aligners every one to two weeks, depending upon the movements required. Each set of aligners has been shaped slightly differently to encourage your teeth to move into the new positions. You will be able to see how this process works, and what your straight teeth will look like once you have decided to take the next step, after your free assessment as we’ve got special Invisalign software that shows you the result of treatment even before you’ve started!
Here at Orthodontic Excellence, we make having Invisalign treatment easy for teens with the Dental Monitoring app. We understand that you and your teen’s schedule can be hectic with juggling work, school, home and social lives – Dental Monitoring is orthodontic software that lets your teen track the movement of their teeth via their smartphone, replacing the need to come in for regular check-ups. This allows you and your teen to concentrate on what matters most in your lives, whilst also getting straight teeth in the process!
