Teenagers have a lot going on these days between academics, sports, music lessons, social time and more. In short, teens are just busy. The lifestyle flexibility makes Invisalign Teen aligners a popular choice for active teens. In addition to being able to eat what they want, Invisalign aligners eliminate the fear of a bracket popping off or discomfort from the lips pressing against the brackets for teens who play sports or musical instruments.
Now, although Invisalign aligners are removable, aligners must be worn 20-22 hours a day for the happiest of smiles and best results. It can be tempting to keep the aligners off for extended periods of time, which can lengthen the treatment time, so it’s always best to only remove them for eating and brushing your teeth.
Our orthodontists are happy to speak with you and your teen to determine if Invisalign Teen aligners are the correct orthodontic treatment plan and lifestyle choice for your teen.
