Teenagers are young, and sometimes not as responsible as they could be! So what happens if a teen loses his Invisalign aligners during treatment?
The creators of Invisalign designed their Invisalign Teen line around the unique needs of busy young people.
One of the issues many teens reported having with standard Invisalign was a difficulty staying on track with treatment. This is because teenage patients are more likely than their adult counterparts to take their aligners out, and leave them out for longer than prescribed.
One of the consequences of this is that they also tend to misplace or damage their aligners more readily, resulting in treatment setbacks. And it can be expensive, too!
To remedy this problem, Invisalign Teen has six sets of replacement aligners built into the treatment program. This means that if your teen loses or damages his aligners, it’s really easy to get back on track. Just be sure to contact your orthodontist straight away!
