Why invisalign is right for teens
At Hersch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, our mission is to help kids throughout Newport Beach grow up with beautiful, healthy smiles. We're proud to provide comprehensive pediatric dental services and orthodontic treatments to help our patients do just that, and because we know how busy life can get (even for kids!) we strive to make the treatment process as convenient as possible. That's why for our adolescent orthodontic patients, we're excited to offer Invisalign Teen as an alternative to traditional metal or clear braces – and it comes with a range of benefits for teenage patients.
The Benefits of Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign, the revolutionary alternative to braces, has long been loved by adults getting orthodontic treatment. But now, there's a new option for teenagers straightening their teeth for the first time: Invisalign Teen. This exciting treatment alternative comes with all the advantages of traditional Invisalign plus some specially-designed features, making it a truly ideal treatment for busy, socially-conscious teens:
- Almost Invisible: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn, which means that in addition to having more confidence on a daily basis, there will be no braces in important photos and milestones like prom.
- No Dietary Restrictions: Because Invisalign aligners are removed when eating, teens won't have to deal with avoiding certain foods as they would with braces.
- Easy Oral Hygiene: The aligners also come out for brushing and flossing, which means oral hygiene is as easy as ever. Teens simply brush and floss as normal – no need for annoying, time-consuming floss threaders.
- Blue Dot Wear Indicators: Invisalign Teen aligners are made with built-in Blue Dot Wear Indicators that fade with use. These tell orthodontists, parents, and teens themselves if the aligners are being worn long enough or if they need to be a little more diligent.
- Eruption Tabs: Invisalign Teen aligners can be made with eruption tabs to hold open space for teeth that have yet to erupt, allowing us to treat patients even if all the permanent teeth haven't come in yet.
- Free Replacement Aligners: Finally, every Invisalign Teen treatment course comes with 6 free replacement aligners, so there's no need to worry about losing or breaking aligners.
