Invisalign Teen

invisalign teen

Any teen who needs braces certainly isn’t excited about the thought of having a mouth full of metal. From low self-esteem to simply the tightness and pain that braces cause - teenagers don’t want to deal with braces, even if they desire straighter teeth. That’s why Shults Orthodontics is proud to offer an alternative option to our teenage patients in Wellington, Loxahatchee, and Royal Palm Beach, FL: Invisalign Teen.

Aligners Designed Just For Teens

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment method using a progressive series of clear, removable aligners that have been customized to a patient’s mouth. This process gently and gradually moves the teeth into the optimal straightened position. Invisalign Teen aligners are designed specifically to be worn by teenagers. Each aligner includes a built-in compliance system. This is a discreet blue indicator that fades as the aligner is worn, showing the patient, Dr. Shults, and the patient’s parents whether or not the aligners are being worn as directed. Special eruption tabs which hold space for permanent teeth that have not yet erupted are also built into each aligner.

Benefits of Invisalign Teen

There are many benefits Invisalign Teen offers. These include:

  • Discreet and comfortable treatment
  • No metal wires or brackets
  • No dietary restrictions
  • Easy to maintain good oral hygiene as the aligners are removed when brushing & flossing
  • Fewer appointments as no adjusting or tightening is necessary

Are You Eligible For Invisalign Teen?

While invisible aligners are appealing to any teenager who needs orthodontic treatment, Invisalign Teen is not for everyone. Your Wellington, FL orthodontist will need to perform a thorough examination to assess your dental health, history, and other factors to determine if you are a good candidate and if Invisalign Teen is the treatment for you.
