Invisalign Versus Invisalign Teen

Suwanee GA Invisalign ProviderInvisalign Clear Aligner Therapy has revolutionized the way both teens and adults can straighten their teeth, offering highlighted convenience and valued discretion for active lifestyles. However, while Invisalign and Invisalign Teen operate on the same basic treatment principles, they are two separate products that account for two distinct age groups. To an outsider, Invisalign may not look or seem different from Invisalign Teen at all. However, there are some key differences between the two:

Invisalign for Adults

Invisalign includes a set of clear aligners or plastic trays that are changed out every two weeks to gradually straighten the teeth. These are comfortably fitting custom trays that are fabricated using advanced 3D imaging.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen works with custom clear aligners just like adult Invisalign. However, this version is equipped with a special feature that allows your orthodontist to know exactly how often you are wearing your aligners (a valued tool for active and less responsible teens).  On Invisalign Teen aligners, you’ll notice a small blue dot on the back. The color of the dot gradually changes from blue to clear or white the more often it is kept in your mouth. Remember that in order for Invisalign to be effective, the trays must be worn about 22 hours out of the day and only removed for eating, brushing, or flossing. In addition to the “blue dot” feature, Invisalign Teen typically comes with more aligner trays to accommodate for the likelihood that one will get lost or damaged.

In terms of the effectiveness of treatment, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen are equals. Both models are made out of the same comfortable and durable plastic. More importantly, there are just as many success stories in adults as there are in teens that use Invisalign.
