The Invisalign Teen system incorporates a few additional features. These include:
Additional (or spare) aligners : Teens being teens, it’s not unusual for things to get misplaced, lost or damaged. For this reason, each set of Invisalign Teen aligners contains a number of free replacements. This ensures that no treatment time is lost while a new aligner is made.
Coloured compliance indicators : To help parents know that their teen is wearing the removable aligner at all times, Invisalign Teen has a blue compliance indicator. When the aligner is being worn, the indicator gradually fades to clear. This also acts as a reminder that it’s time to start wearing the next aligner.
Invisalign Teen also incorporates special features for canines, second premolars and second and third molar teeth. In addition, and unlike fixed metal braces, the removable Invisalign aligners allow complete access to the full tooth and gum area when brushing and flossing, making it easier to maintain good dental hygiene.
