How Does Invisalign Teen Work?
Invisalign Teen is a system that uses clear aligners that are designed specifically for teens. As one of the leading orthodontic treatments for patients of all ages, Invisalign is one of the most convenient and effective solutions to straighten crooked teeth. By using clear, removable aligners, your teen can achieve a straighter smile in no time.
Traditional metal braces rely on brackets, wires, and bands to shift the teeth, while Invisalign uses a simple, removable aligner. While undergoing Invisalign treatment, your teen will receive multiple aligners that are custom designed to fit comfortably over their teeth. Each set of aligners will create focalized pressure on the teeth, causing them to shift into proper alignment. The aligners are worn for at least 22 hours a day and are changed weekly throughout the duration of your teen’s Invisalign treatment. While there may be some minimal discomfort when switching out new aligners, Invisalign is generally an effective and comfortable way to straighten your smile.
