Tips for Teens Wearing Invisalign

Junge Frau setzt lächelnd Zahnspange in den MundInvisalign offers a treatment plan specifically designed for their teenage patients. They are aware that teens are on-the-go, eager to get through treatment, and forgetful at some times. That is why Invisalign Teen has features such as use indicators and replacement trays. Here are some tips to help teens who wear Invisalign have a great orthodontic experience.

Know where they go

One of the things patients love about Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. This means you can take them out to eat and clean the teeth. When they are removed, it is important to be mindful of where you place them. It is instinct, especially with teens, to place then in a napkin when enjoying a meal. But this can be dangerous! Aligners are clear in color, which means that they can be easily missed during clean up, and thrown away, never to be seen again. It is also a good idea to set trays down on the counter immediately after removing them to brush your teeth. Holding them up over hard surfaces they can be dropped on is not the safest practice.

Treat yourself

Our Beverly Hills Invisalign specialist will be sure to point out the blue indicators on the trays. These disappear with use, thus letting them know if they have been worn for the appropriate amount of time, and not ignored or forgotten. Pay attention to the indicators throughout your treatment. Aim to get them to disappear, and when they do, treat yourself to something special, like your favorite food or a new DVD.
