Invisalign Teen straightens teeth with clear, plastic aligners that are custom made to fit your teeth. Every two weeks you use a new set of aligners, moving the teeth just a bit more toward their ultimate destination. About every eight to ten weeks, you will visit Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics to make certain you are on the right track.
There are numerous benefits to having Invisalign Teen. Most people would assume only adults need Invisalign, for professional reasons. However, teenagers are loving the invisible, removable alternative to straightening teeth.
5 Benefits of Invisalign Teen
Teenagers love Invisalign and here are five reasons why!
Invisalign aligners are completely clear and custom made for your teeth. From selfies to prom and yearbook photos, as well as senior pictures, you will be looking your best. Since the aligners are clear, most people won’t even know you are wearing them. Your smile will change discreetly and you can be more confident about how you look.
Invisalign trays are removable. You take them out when you eat and enjoy all of your favorite foods. You can brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, and then place the aligners back in until your next meal. Just don’t forget to put them back in! Invisalign Teen should be worn precisely as your orthodontist prescribes.
If you play sports, Invisalign Teen is a perfect alternative way to straighten your smile. You can remove the aligners before games and place them back in when you are done. Invisalign also gives you the freedom to play instruments.
As Invisalign aligners do not contain metal or wires, there will be fewer visits to Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics. You will find this feature to be a great time-saver. The aligners also have blue indicators that fade as you wear them so you and your parents can make sure you are wearing them as instructed. If you lose an aligner, Invisalign provides six free replacements.
Your parents will be happy about this one. Invisalign Teen costs about the same as traditional braces, and insurance companies generally offer an equivalent amount of coverage. With Invisalign Teen, you can set up a payment plan over the length of your orthodontic care, with no-interest financing.
