The biggest problem with Invisalign is also one of its best features: it is removable. This means that patients can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. But it also means they need to remember to keep them safe when not wearing them and need to remember to put them back in once done. Even responsible teens will get busy with life and forget things on occasion.
The Invisalign Teen system is designed to accommodate a little forgetfulness. The aligners have a blue dot that indicates if the aligner has been worn enough. Teens and parents can use this to ensure the patient is wearing the aligners as often as they should and also use it to know when it is time to switch to the next aligner in the series. The system also gives you a few free replacement aligners should the patient lose some.
If your teen needs to straighten their smile but isn’t interested in braces, make an appointment to discuss Invisalign Teen.
