Special Features Designed for Teens
Teenagers are at a unique phase of development, meaning they have different needs than adults. Dentists often recommend orthodontic treatment before all of their teeth have erupted. In addition, parents may worry about their child actually wearing the aligners. Invisalign Teen has special features to address these concerns, including:
Compliance Indicators: Each aligner has a blue dot which changes color with consistent use. These indicator dots show you, your teen, and Dr. Rink that the aligners were worn for the right amount of time.
Replacement Aligners: Kids are often forgetful and may lose or break their aligners. Luckily, treatment with Invisalign Teen includes six replacement aligners at no extra cost..
Eruption Tabs: Special tabs on the aligners allow teeth to erupt naturally during Invisalign treatment.
Similar to traditional Invisalign, each customized aligner is made from SmartTrack® material. This smooth, BPA-free plastic will never irritate the delicate tissue inside the mouth.
