Invisible Treatment For Teenagers
Introducing the Invisalign Teen System
Your teen is unique. Their treatment should be, too. That’s why Invisalign Teen aligners use the most advanced technology to uniquely design a treatment around your teen to reveal their best smile. Plus, your child is 2x more likely to have higher self-esteem throughout treatment when compared to braces, giving them a better overall experience.
Invisalign Teen is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teen’s teeth without the restrictions that come with metal braces. Rather than wires and brackets, Invisalign Teen uses a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your teen’s teeth. Your teen simply wears them over their teeth and changes them out for a new set of aligners every two weeks. Little by little, your teen’s teeth gradually shift into place, achieving that confident smile.
When worn according to the recommendations of Dr Chye, Invisalign Teen can be as effective as traditional braces for the most common teeth-straightening issues. Invisalign Teen can effectively treat mild to severe cases, including underbite, overbite, overcrowding and gaps between teeth. The chances are very high your teen will be a great candidate for Invisalign Teen.
Advantages of Invisalign Teen
If you’ve had braces yourself, you already know the issues associated with metal wires and brackets. With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are removable, so your teen can play sports without the worry of being hit in the mouth by a ball, which can cause real damage in braces. They can also continue playing musical instruments properly, without braces getting in the way. With braces, there is a long list of foods your teen shouldn’t eat, from popcorn to apples and raw carrots. With Invisalign Teen, there are no such restrictions. The removable aligners make it easy to brush and floss normally to maintain proper oral hygiene.
Research shows that parents underestimate the extent to which teens feel self-conscious about crooked teeth, and using braces as a solution can often make this lack of confidence even worse. But with Invisalign Teen, no one needs to know your teen is straightening their teeth, removing a potential source of real anxiety for them and giving them the confidence to be themselves in front of everyone.
Appointment intervals are generally the same as with traditional braces but can be much quicker with less time spent in the dentists’ or orthodontists’ chair during appointments as no adjustments need to be made to wires/brackets. Patients typically visit Dr Chye every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned, and to receive their next few sets of Invisalign aligners.
Unlike traditional wires and brackets, you can eat whatever you like while in treatment because you remove your aligners to eat and drink. Thus, there is no need to restrict consuming any of your favourite foods and snacks. Also, it is important that you brush and floss your teeth after each meal and prior to re-inserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene.
The total duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment and is generally comparable to that of traditional braces. Typically treatment can last between 9 and 18 months. During your consultation, Dr Chye will provide you with more detailed information.
