Invisalign Teen


Treatment From Your Local Warminster Orthodontists

invisalign teenTeens have different needs than adults, and that goes for their orthodontic needs as well. While Invisalign® is a great solution for both, there are some differences that need to be made for our teen patients. Invisalign Teen® is a product used for our younger patients who may want a slightly more discreet option than braces. Custom-made aligners are removable, allowing our patients to eat, brush and floss without them in the way. As your Warminster orthodontist, we know the adolescent years can be more focused on image, so a virtually invisible solution to straighten teeth is a great choice for treatment.

What Is The Difference?

There are a few key differences between Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®. They include:

  • The Blue Dot Wear Indicator - On the back of each aligner is a blue dot. This dot fades after a certain amount of wear time, allowing parents and orthodontists to know whether they have been consistently worn. If they aren't worn the appropriate amount of time, the changes within the mouth will not take place.
  • Spaces For Adult Teeth - Invisalign Teen® aligners leave room for adult teeth to grow in. Many teens still have spaces where their teeth haven't erupted yet, and the aligners leave space for that to happen.
  • Replacements - We know adolescents these days are busier than ever, and we make getting your hands on free replacement aligners easy. Whether they are lost or broken, you never have to worry that correction will be delayed.
