Is Invisalign an option for children?
Ages 11 & below
In certain cases, Invisalign can be a viable treatment option for children, but we usually recommend a more traditional orthodontic approach for those under the age of 12. This is because traditional braces are fixed to the teeth rather than having the ability to take them off throughout the day like Invisalign. Losing or breaking Invisalign aligners during treatment can lead to setbacks and slow down treatment.
Still, if you are certain that your child is capable of handling the responsibilities that come with Invisalign, they can certainly be an effective method of shifting his or her teeth into proper alignment.
Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign gives teens the option to straighten their teeth through a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners. Special compliance indicators are incorporated into the trays, allowing the orthodontist to monitor how often the teen is wearing his or her aligners. With this type of assurance, parents can feel confident that Invisalign is just as good of an option for their teenager as traditional braces.
Invisalign is a great esthetic option and allows for an easier time brushing and flossing since they are removable. Teenage years are crucial in cementing the health of one’s teeth and gums for the future, so the Invisalign approach can give your children the ability to properly tend to their teeth in this critical point of life.
Invisalign for Adults
Invisalign gives adults the option to straighten their teeth through a series of custom-made, clear, removable aligners. They are a great esthetic option and allow for an easier time brushing and flossing since they are removable. Invisalign allows for the flexibility in patient’s needs whether it is a fully comprehensive treatment or a limited approach.
