Back to School with Invisalign Teen

Back to School with Invisalign Teen
Posted on 11/03/2017

Heading back to high school or college following a long break is a time that can be both exciting and stressful. It’s also when you’ll notice many of your friends and classmates wearing braces. Even though the shiny metal brackets used with braces may not look all that great, braces do a very good job of straightening teeth.

If you’re a teenager who’s been putting off seeing a Burlington orthodontist because you don’t want to deal with wearing and caring for metal braces, the Discover Orthodontics team is happy to tell you that there’s a more discreet and convenient way to improve your smile and it’s called Invisalign Teen!

What is Invisalign Teen?


Instead of using metal brackets and wires, Invisalign Teen uses a series of clear, removable plastic aligners to straighten teeth. When you return to high school or college with Invisalign Teen, most of your friends and classmates won’t even notice the aligners on your teeth. Instead of feeling embarrassed by a mouthful of metal, you’ll feel confident about your smile when in class and when hanging out with your friends. And since the aligners are removable, there won’t be any awkward moments in the lunchroom with food stuck in your appliances because the aligners are designed to be taken out when eating. The removable nature of the aligners also means that your oral hygiene routine won’t change. You just take them out to brush and floss and then pop them back in when done, and that’s it.

An Easy Way to Get a Great Smile


Invisalign Teen is an easy and hassle-free treatment option with some nice features you’ll love! You’ll never have to worry about forgetting to change your aligners to the next set in the series. This is because you’ll have the handy “compliance indicators’ on your aligners to tell you when it's time to make the switch.

If you happen to lose or break an aligner, there are several replacement aligners available to take its place. This helps ensure that you’ll get your new smile fast without any delays slowing your progress down. And since there are no wires to adjust with Invisalign Teen, you’ll only need to visit us every 8 to 12 weeks. This gives you more free time to do all the things busy teenagers like you enjoy doing!

Is Invisalign Teen Right for You?


One of the best things about Invisalign Teen is that the aligners can be used to correct many different types of orthodontic issues including crowded teeth, gapped teeth, crossbites, overbites, and underbites. The chances are good that you’ll make the ideal candidate for this fast, convenient, and discreet treatment option! The only surefire way to find out if this is the right treatment for you is to see an Invisalign Teen orthodontist in Burlington.
