Invisalign isn’t just great for adults, it can work for teen patients as well. The clear aligners are nearly invisible when worn, fit comfortably over the teeth, and can be removed at a patient’s convenience. Invisalign Teen is different from traditional Invisalign in one important way: Invisalign Teen includes 6 replacement aligners in case a younger patient accidentally loses or damages one. At Columbus Orthodontic Center, we’re actually able to treat half of our teen patients with this method.
Each and every teen we see is unique, and their treatment should always reflect that. This is why Invisalign Teen is custom-made for every patient to fit their particular smile. Also, thanks to its subtle appearance, teens will be able to more easily maintain their self-confidence so that they can have a better overall treatment experience.
With Dr. Mason, Invisalign Teen can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic issues, ranging from simple to complex.
Invisalign Teen makes it much easier for a patient to maintain their normal oral hygiene routine because they’ll be able to simply remove their aligner before brushing.
The brackets and wires of braces can often cause irritation to the gums and lips, and they can even lead to emergencies if they are damaged during an accident (such as when playing sports). With Invisalign Teen, a patient will not have to deal with either this discomfort or liability.
Invisalign Teen requires fewer progress checks than traditional braces, meaning a patient will need to take less time out of their busy schedule over the course of their treatment.
The patient did not want any metal braces, had crowded upper and lower arches, increased overbite, and overjet.
