Invisalign clear aligners are a discreet and convenient way for adults and teens to achieve a straighter smile, without the hassle of traditional metal braces. Here's more from our Surrey dentist on the benefits of Invisalign for adults and teens.
Invisalign clear braces allow adults and teens to improve their smile without the hassle often associated with metal orthodontic braces.
Invisalign For Adults
In the past, adults have often hesitated to undergo orthodontic treatment because they believed it was for children or teenagers, but now more and more adults are choosing to improve their smiles by correcting dental issues that were left untreated in childhood.
Invisalign clear aligners are made of a transparent plastic material, making them almost invisible to others. The aligners are also comfortable and removable, so they fit easily in to busy day to day routines of adults.
Invisalign For Teens
With additional features including compliance indicators and eruption tabs, Invisalign Teen has been designed to meet the specific needs of teenagers who want straighter smiles.
Compliance indicators help teens to keep on track of their treatment, and let them know when switch to the next set of aligners. Compliance indicators are small blue dots on the backs of the aligners that fade away once they have been worn for two full weeks.
Eruption tabs provide space for teens' second molars to grow in over the course of treatment. Eruption tabs help to keep the molars straight, and prevent them from growing in crooked or too far into another molar’s space.
