More about this treatment

Teen Invisalign in Burgess Hill information

Invisalign for teens in Burgess Hill is a specific version of the Invisalign clear aligner system that is designed specifically for teenagers. Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment option that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten teeth and correct various dental issues, such as crooked teeth, gappy teeth, overbites and open bites.

The Invisalign Teen system works similarly to the regular Invisalign treatment, but it includes features that are specifically tailored to the needs of teenagers. These features address common concerns and challenges faced by teenagers undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Some features of Invisalign Teen include:

Eruption tabs: Invisalign Teen accommodates the growth of new teeth by including special eruption tabs that hold space for unerupted teeth. This feature allows for more flexibility in treating teenagers who still have some permanent teeth yet to come in.

Replacement aligners: Recognizing that teenagers are prone to misplacing or losing things, Invisalign Teen provides up to six replacement aligners at no additional cost. This ensures that treatment can continue smoothly even if an aligner is accidentally damaged or lost.

Mandibular Advancement tabs: This feature incorporates tabs on the sides of the aligners that will force the lower jaw to posture forward. This allows the Invisalign aligners to work in a similar way to Twin Block functional braces, to correct overbites. They are much easier to wear than

Twin Block braces, and for that reason may have higher success rates.

Like the regular Invisalign treatment, Invisalign Teen aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. They offer a more discreet and convenient alternative to traditional metal braces, which can be a significant advantage for teenagers concerned about their appearance during orthodontic treatment.

Treatment length varies depending on the complexity of the orthodontic problem, but treatment is usually a bit quicker than traditional fixed metal or ceramic braces.

While Invisalign teen is a fantastic appliance useful in treating many orthodontic problems, it cannot do everything. In some case your orthodontist may recommend a hybrid approach that combines elements of fixed braces as well as Invisalign. In some case, for example if 4 teeth need to be removed to relieve crowding, Invisalign may not be the best option.

The other important thing to bear in mind when considering whether Invisalign is right for your child, is how good you think your child will be at wearing the appliances. Invisalign requires commitment and diligence, so may not be for everyone.

Invisalign for Teens FAQs

I change aligners every week, do I have to come to the clinic every week?

No. We will normally give you 6-8 aligners to take home and work through yourself, changing them every week. We are of course more than happy to see you sooner if there are any problems.

What if my child doesn’t wear their aligners?

If the aligners are not being worn 21 hours per day, they will not work. There may be a possibility of switching to an alternative treatment if things don’t work out and Invisalign will sometimes refund the lab fee as a way of guaranteeing the treatment

Why do most teens have metal braces?

Some children are eligible for NHS orthodontics, and NHS orthodontics is almost always done with fixed metal braces. The use of Invisalign on teenagers is increasing rapidly, and in many cases is the preferred treatment option.

What are the benefits of Invisalign teen over traditional fixed braces?

Invisalign aligners are more discreet and more comfortable than fixed metal braces. Children can eat normally and brush their teeth normally as the aligners are removed. In contrast, eating and cleaning must be done around fixed metal braces which increased chance of brace breakages and inadequate oral hygiene.

Is Invisalign more expensive than fixed braces?

You might be surprised to learn that there is very little difference in the cost between fixed braces and Invisalign teen.
