What is invisalign for teens?

Invisalign For Teens is a version of the popular Invisalign clear aligner system that is designed specifically for teenagers. It shares many of the same features as the standard Invisalign system, such as using a series of clear plastic, removable aligners to straighten teeth. However, Invisalign Teen includes additional features tailored to adolescents, such as compliance indicators to help monitor how often the aligners are being worn, and eruption tabs to accommodate growing teeth. This allows teens to straighten their teeth without some of the inconveniences of traditional metal braces, offering a more aesthetic and flexible orthodontic treatment option

Invisalign For Teens FAQ'S

The cost of Invisalign for children can vary widely depending on several factors, including the complexity of the child’s dental issues, the length of treatment, and the geographic location. Some dental insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost, and many even at smile care family dental we offer flexible dental plans.

Invisalign teens can be an excellent option for many 14 year olds, as it is designed to work for  dental alignment needs. It is especially appealing for teens who are self-conscious about their appearance because the clear aligners are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Invisalign Teen also comes with features like compliance indicators that fade from blue to clear to help understand how often the aligners are being worn. It’s important to note that success with Invisalign depends on the teen wearing the aligners consistently, except when eating, drinking anything other than water, and brushing their teeth.

 Invisalign typically causes less discomfort than traditional braces because there are no metal brackets or wires that can irritate the mouth. However, when a child first starts wearing Invisalign or switches to a new set of aligners, they may experience some pressure and discomfort as their teeth begin to shift. This discomfort usually subsides within a few days. Overall, Invisalign aligners are made of smooth plastic and are custom-fitted, which helps minimize pain.

Invisalign can be a good choice for kids who need orthodontic treatment. It’s particularly suitable for children who are disciplined enough to wear the aligners for the recommended 20-22 hours a day and who might feel self-conscious about wearing traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are also removable, which makes maintaining good oral hygiene easier, as kids can brush and floss normally. However, whether Invisalign is the right choice for a child should be determined in consultation with an orthodontist, as some complex dental issues might be better treated with traditional braces.

The duration of Invisalign treatment for kids depends on the complexity of the case.
