Many adults are opting for Invisalign rather than conventional braces to straighten their teeth. This is because Invisalign is clear and more aesthetic than metal braces. Teens are also strong candidates for Invisalign. Our orthodontist can help you and your teen decide if Invisalign is a good option.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign Teen aligners are clear, removable, smooth and comfortable. Invisalign uses precise measurements for a completely customized treatment solution that fits your teen’s needs. They straighten teeth without visible brackets or wires, and each aligner progressively moves teeth until your teen’s smile is straight, balanced and healthy.
The aligners can be taken out, which means your teen can easily brush and floss her teeth and eat any food without being warry of damage. She can also participate in all her favorite activities, including band or athletics, without interfering with her orthodontic treatment schedule.
The teen-friendly version of Invisalign has several features just for teens, including the Blue Dot indicator to keep your teen on track. Eruption tabs are available to accommodate growing jaws. Replacement aligners are also a possibility. Call our office today to learn more about Invisalign options for teens or to schedule your consultation with our dentist in San Francisco.
