Teenagers are shy, awkward and self-conscious at the best of times, so if their Hanwell dentist tells them that they are going to have to wear a brace for the next three years, then it is clearly going to be the worst thing in the world for them. Step forward, Invisalign Teen. The treatment works in the same way as the standard Invisalign brace, but with some added features to make it suitable for teenagers.
The fact is that Invisalign braces are – quite conveniently – removable, which is an advantage for adult wearers. However, teens will do anything to avoid wearing braces, so it is quite possible that they won’t wear them at all or even ‘lose’ them. Dentists cannot monitor their patients 24/7, so they have developed Invisalign Teen with ‘marker tabs,’ which gradually change colour for when they need to be replaced. This allows both parents and dentists to keep an eye on the progress of the treatment and quickly notice if they are not wearing them. Invisalign Teen also comes with six free replacements so there is no excuse if they are misplaced or damaged.
The actual brace is discreet, so there is no lack of confidence once fitted. The treatment time is also far quicker – on average, around 6 to 15 months – so it is far more appealing than three years of metal braces. Much like the adult version, Invisalign Teen can treat many kinds of orthodontic problems, such as over-crowded teeth, widely-spaced teeth, overbite, crossbite and underbite.
With this treatment, teenagers no longer have to dread braces and Invisalign Teen is by far the best option for teenagers who are in need of orthodontic treatment, but do not want the inevitable embarrassment that comes with the traditional brace.
