What if you could enjoy high school without the self-consciousness or embarrassment that comes with braces? With Invisalign Teen’s discreet treatment, you can enjoy taking pictures at your homecoming dances, sporting events, and even prom with a bright, confident smile! Invisalign Teen is similar to traditional Invisalign. With a series of clear, removable aligner trays, you can straighten your teeth without your friends or family noticing. Dr. Derek Straffon is a 5-star-rated orthodontist for Invisalign Teen near Englewood, CO.
If you play an instrument or sport, simply remove your Invisalign Teen trays and play the way you always have. With traditional metal braces, you are subjected to an adjustment period or are required to buy expensive brace-ready mouth guards. Invisalign Teen gives you the flexibility to be a teenager with no restraints.
With traditional metal braces, there are certain dietary restrictions for the duration of your treatment. Certain foods like whole apples, carrots, caramels, and cereal have to be either avoided or modified to be appliance-friendly. Invisalign Teen utilizes removable trays, so you are able to enjoy the foods you love without damaging your appliance and extending your treatment time.
In addition to all the great benefits of Invisalign, Invisalign Teen also includes additional features to help ensure a smooth, worry-free treatment process. Keep reading to learn more!
Invisalign Teen comes with a blue-dot indicator on each aligner. When you wear your aligner for 20-22 hours a day (as recommended), the blue dot will fade to clear to let you know when it’s time for the next set of aligners. At our orthodontic office near Englewood, we know you have a busy schedule between school, chores, and extra-curricular activities. Invisalign Teen gives you one less thing to worry about during your high school days, and it makes it easy for you to prove to your parents that you’re in compliance with your treatment!
If your parents are worried that you might lose an aligner, they can rest easier knowing that Invisalign Teen near Englewood, CO, has you covered! If you accidentally throw out your aligner with your lunch tray or leave it where the dog can eat it, you will have a few additional aligners available as back up at no additional cost.
