Invisible braces for teenagers
At one80 Dental we provide Invisalign Teen treatments which have become a very popular solution for parents looking for alternatives to traditional braces for their teenage children.
Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign® clear aligners are made of smooth, removable SmartTrack plastic material that’s virtually invisible, allowing your teenage child to smile with confidence, take selfies, eat their favourite foods, play contact sports and play musical instruments.
What is the Invisalign Teen system?
Invisalign teenage orthodontic treatment differs from traditional non-removable metal brackets because Invisalign comprises a set of a few transparent, custom-moulded clear aligners, which can be removed for up to 2 hours each day. This allows for more freedom in any busy teenager’s lifestyle. Invisalign Teen also has a few special features, designed specifically for teenagers:
- Invisalign Teen comes with blue wear-indicators that fade from blue to clear on each clear aligner to help you, our orthodontist and your teenager gauge wear over time.
- Up to six free replacement aligners are included (in case any get lost or misplaced, e.g. when playing sports).
- Invisalign Teen aligners have special features designed to guide the growth of new teeth (canines, second premolars and second molars), helping them to get to a planned, straighter position.
Conditions which can be treated with Invisalign Teen
In the hands of our experienced orthodontist, Invisalign Teen can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues including:
- Overly crowded or crooked teeth
- Spaced Teeth
- Protruding Teeth
Invisalign Teen benefits for parents:
- Less orthodontic appointments, compared to traditional braces
- Shorter appointments compared to traditional braces
- Emergency appointments for breakages and looses wires are not necessary
- Digital treatment planning allows for more precise prediction of treatment results
- Better oral hygiene possible as the clear aligners can be removed for more effective tooth brushing and flossing
Invisalign Teen aligners fit into a teenager’s life perfectly. Discreet and clear, Invisalign® makes aligners almost impossible to notice. Custom designed for each person, they are more comfortable than traditional braces and give the wearer the freedom to play contact sports or play musical instruments, because the aligners can be removed during the activity.
