Is Invisalign® the best option for your child?

It might be before you decide, get to understand the benefits, downsides and potential costs of Invisalign®.

What is Invisalign® Teen?

Invisalign® teen is a unique approach to straightening teeth. Much like traditional braces with metal brackets and wires, clear plastic aligners apply pressure to teeth and help them shift into alignment, you will wear each set of custom-crafted aligners a week, 10 days or 2 weeks (according to our instructions), and change to the next one.

Is Invisalign® teen different than Invisalign® for adult?

Invisalign® teen has a number of features that were designed specifically with teens in mind. These include:

1. Complimentary Replacements:

  • Teens have a lot going on, and it is easy for things to get lost. Invisalign® Teen includes up to six free replacement aligners. While it is important to keep track of your aligners, you have peace of mind knowing that if you lost an aligner, it won't cost extra to replace it.

2. Room for growing Teeth:

  • Many teens straighten their teeth while they are still growing. It can be challenging to fix alignment issues in a mouth that is always changing. But Invisalign® Teen has a special feature that allows it to guide new teeth into just the right position.

3. Usage indicator:

  • A huge advantage of Invisalign® Teen is that you can take your aligners out as desired to eat your foods or brush and floss your teeth. But busy teens, Sometimes forget to put their aligners back in. Invisalign® Teen aligners have built in indicators to show you, your parents, and your orthodontist whether you are using the system properly.

4. Ability to move roots:

  • To fix the alignment of your teeth, we may need to move the roots of some or all of your teeth. Invisalign® Teen can gently make these shifts, allowing your finished smile to be as perfect as possible. 

    Benefits of Invisalign® Teen

    Like Invisalign® for adults, Invisalign® teen has quite a few benefits over traditional braces. 

    A. Looks and comfort

  • Many children and teens get self-conscious when they have a mouthful of braces. Because clear in plastic aligners are virtually invisible, allowing them to smile confidently in all situations. In addition, Invisalign® Teen's smooth aligners have no sharp edges to poke or scratch your mouth, unlike the traditional braces. Having the attachments placed can be slightly uncomfortable, but most teens report little or no pain after that.

    B. Daily life

  • Teens are so busy that it can be tough to squeeze anything else into the day if they have traditional braces, they may need to come for emergencies to fix something that's broken, or you may recall having sore spots inside your mouth where on the brackets or wires rubbed up against inside of your lips or cheeks. In addition, braces require you to learn a whole new way of caring for your teeth, and some foods are off-limits.

    C. Removability

  • Invisalign's removable aligners let you maintain control of your life. It's easier to brush and floss without having to maneuver around wires and brackets. And better oral hygiene usually means fewer cavities. You can pop the trays out whenever you like to eat your favorite foods and to brush and floss your teeth.

Precautions and drawbacks of Invisalign® braces for teens and children.

    1. Requires Compliance

  • If your teen's likely to be lax on the compliance front, that's something to consider. You must wear the aligners for 20-22 hours at a time for them to work effectively. You can take them out to eat, drink, and to clean them, but you have to put them back in afterwards. If they're not in the mouth, they can't do their job.

    2. Potential for loss

  • If you're just spent thousands of dollars on clear plastic aligners, you may regret it if your child pops them out to eat lunch and then leaves them on their lunch tray. Because aligners are removable, they also have the potential to get lost. You may want to assess how responsible your teen is.

    3. Insurance coverage

  • Insurance may or may not cover the cost. Dental insurance is not standardized, and different plans have different coverage. Some cover Invisalign as well as brace, while others do not. Annual Coverage limits also vary widely between policies. Our office staff will help you understand the coverage you have and what you're out of pocket costs will be.
