Invisalign For Adults
In the past, many adults have hesitated to undergo orthodontic treatment because they think it is for children or teenagers. Now, more and more adults are choosing to improve their smiles, and correct the misalignment issues that were left untreated when they were children.
Invisalign is the discrete orthodontic treatment option for adults. Invisalign's clear aligners are created from thin transparent plastic, making them almost completely invisible to others. Not only that, they're also removable, so adults can easily fit them into their busy day-to-day routines.
Invisalign For Teens
Invisalign for teens has been specifically designed to meet the needs of teenagers who want to straighten their smiles. Invisalign for teens is similar to Invisalign for adults, but includes additional features such as compliance indicators and eruption tabs.
Compliance indicators are designed to help teens stay on track with their treatment. Compliance indicators are small blue dots on the backs of the aligners which gradually fade away once that set of aligners have been worn for two full weeks. This helps to remind teens when they need to switch to the next set of aligners in the series.
Invisalign for teens eruption tabs provide space for teens' second molars to grow-in over the course of their treatment. Eruption tabs help to keep the molars straight, and prevent them from growing-in too far into another molar’s space.
