Invisalign VS Invisalign Teen

We’ve blogged before about the benefits of the Invisalign teeth realignment programme. It can be an excellent choice for eligible patients who want to make a big difference to their smile. Even better? It can be done in minimal time with minimal disturbance to their life and mouth.

What you may not know is that Invisalign offer a specialist retainer programme for younger patients. Invisalign Teen does the same effective job as Invisalign Adult, but with a few key differences.

Wear time indicators

Parents are sometimes concerned that their teens won’t wear their retainers for the recommended amount of time. You may be reassured to hear that Invisalign Teen comes with wear time indicators that fade from blue to clear once each retainer has been worn for long enough.

Extra growing space

The retainers in the teen programme are designed to allow for a little extra growing space. They have eruption tabs to take into account any adult teeth that are not yet fully grown.

Replacement aligners

We know parents worry about the chance of aligners getting lost or damaged. This can be a particular concern if you’re considering this orthodontic treatment programme for a younger teen. Luckily, Invisalign have got this covered. Included in the cost of the Invisalign Teen programme are six free replacement retainers. These can be ordered quickly and easily at any stage during your teen’s treatment: no questions asked!

Power ridges to guide root movement

In order to fully address alignment issues, it’s often necessary to encourage movement at the root. Invisalign Teen retainers have unique power ridges that do this very effectively.
