Invisalign Teen is a specially-made Invisalign system for teens. Invisalign Teen uses custom-made, clear aligners like the regular Invisalign system and works the same way, but has certain features that help teens have a more successful treatment.
Like adults, many teens with orthodontic issues want to undergo treatment but are concerned about their appearance during the orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces using bulky metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, virtually invisible aligners.
Invisalign treatment involves transparent, custom-made, clear aligners. The aligners are removable; you can take them out for up to four hours daily.
The series of clear aligners gradually shift the teeth to their correct position, and each set is swapped every 1 – 2 weeks.
Invisalign Teen include devices that help guide the new teeth' growth, including the canine, premolars, and second molars, to align them.
The success rate is higher because the Invisalign system uses the iTero scanner that takes thousands of 3D teeth https://www.kingstonortho.co.uk/design/images in less than one minute. The result is a more effective and precise treatment.
Invisalign Teen has an optional blue indicator dot to help the child remain on track with the treatment and monitor the wearing time.
The materials used to make Invisalign aligners are advanced, making the aligners less painful, more comfortable and more effective.
The SmartTrack material is a high-grade plastic that gently applies pressure to a tooth at the same time. Only Invisalign aligners are made using SmartTrack materials, making the process more comfortable.
The custom-made aligners fit the teeth perfectly and are discreet. You can expect the result you see during the consultation.
Within 12 months, your teenager can have straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile without using metal brackets, wires and bands.
During the initial consultation, the orthodontist will take images of your teen's smile with an iTero scanner. This scanner takes about 6,000 images per second to show how the teeth will look during each stage of treatment and the expected result.
You can make alterations and suggestions at this stage to improve the overall smile appearance.
The cost of Invisalign treatment depends on the number of aligners and trays needed to complete the treatment. Regardless of the case's complexity, Invisalign aligners can straighten the teeth faster than braces, and both options have a similar cost.
